Book Beginnings
The leather-bound volume was nothing remarkable. To an ordinary historian, it would have looked no different from hundreds of other manuscripts in Oxford's Bodleian Library, ancient and worn. But I knew there was something odd about it from the moment I collected it.

  14. Those are two really great teasers! I mean, vampires are one thing that'd grab your attention and something must happen to cause the rambling speech in your F56! I hope you enjoy this one, the cover is absolutely stunning! Thanks for sharing :) I hope you have a great week!
