Frank, deceived by the demon, opens the door and all hell breaks loose.

“Frank, I told you not to unlock the door,” Nessa said.

When the demon turned to face her, she reached inside her pocket and withdrew gold powder that she threw at it. The demon put its hands in front of its face and shook its head. Nessa threw more powder on the creature and chanted in Latin. The Huli Jing was unable to move, and smoke came off its body and arms. She threw more powder on the demon while she continued chanting. The demon, covered in the fine gold powder, hunched its shoulders while contracting into a tighter mass. As it did so, the smoke continued to increase.

Nessa pulled a silver dagger out of her coat and stabbed the demon in the chest. It emitted a loud, “Hhhhcccchhh,” sound. Greenish fluid flowed down its chest, but the hole made by the knife closed up.

She stabbed at it again. This time the demon grabbed the end of the dagger, broke it off, and tossed it away. Nessa clenched her fist.

The Huli Jing shook its body. Some of the fine gold powder flew into the air, and smoke coming off it decreased. The demon became brighter and brighter, until it was almost impossible to look at. The creature hissed at Nessa, and she bared her fangs and snarled.

Her knees buckled, and she pulled her cape over her head. The light created by the demon intensified, and Nessa fell backward into what remained of the doorway. The demon struggled to move towards her, hindered by the remaining golden dust on it.

Live Encounter with a Giant Werewolf - with picture of werewolf

I had expected to see werewolves during my week long stay in Transylvania, but I hadn't anticipated an encounter of the worst kind. My wolfhound, Ajax, had picked up the scent of a werewolf. Unfortunately, while we stalked the creature, it was stalking us. My photographer, Katerina, was able to take the accompanying photo just before she dove off a hundred-foot cliff. Fortunately, the camera was waterproof, as was Katerina. I dove off the cliff a moment after she did and found the swiftly flowing river to be icy cold. However, it was far preferable to the hot fangs of the giant werewolf we had encountered. We agreed the werewolf stood over eight feet tall and its incisors were at least four inches long. 

I spent the rest of my time in the mountains fishing for trout in the nearby river. it is one thing to hunt and endangered species, and quite another to be in danger of becoming one.

Unholy Embrace  is a swift paced, action-packed novel about the relationship between a mortal man and his immortal female vampire lover as they fight werewolves, vampires, and other creatures in their effort to kill a soul eating demon.
