Book Description

Introducing the Reluctant Vampire...
Is Jonathan Stoker a descendant of Bram Stoker, the author of vampire novel, ‘Dracula’? He neither knows nor cares. What matters is that a powerful vampire thought it would be a great joke to turn a man with that name.

Years later, Stoker lives on as the reluctant vampire, only emerging from the dark shadows to suck nonlethal quantities of blood from helpless drunks. He’s on the run from vampire kind, and hiding from his own mortal son who believes him dead.

Each vampire has a unique ability based upon how they lived their mortal life. Stoker smoked cigars and now he can hold his breath for an exceptionally long time. Big deal! Scared and ashamed, he keeps to the shadows.

But he isn’t useless; nor are his powers as weak as he thinks. Stoker is part of a prophecy and that prophecy is about to come true at the VampCon...

VampCon: a murderous congregation...
When Stoker is visited by the blind vampire sorceress, Ariel Lockhart, his days of isolation are over. Ariel summons him to the VampCon in Boston, a high stakes meeting of the most powerful vamps in America. Powerful factions are studying ancient myths and unlocking the key to the creation of vampire kind... and to their ultimate destruction.

VampCon — it’s a cut-throat summit, a power struggle, a murderous congregation set up by an insane vampire leader who must be obeyed.
VampCon — is where Stoker begins to learn his destiny, and the true nature of his unique vampire power.
VampCon — it's a trap! — no one in; no one out. It’s filled with bloodthirsty vampires and one mortal — Stoker’s son.
VampCon — it’s the end of the world.

Can Stoker, Lockhart, and a small band of troublemakers defy fate and prevent a nightmare from coming true? It doesn’t seem likely, but Stoker’s little band are the world’s only hope.

If you’re tired of Twilight fan fiction and second-rate Anne Rice copyists, read VampCon for the very best of original dark urban fantasy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Much more than just another vampire story. 12 Aug 2013
By Abrach
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Vampcon is unlike any vampire story I have ever read. In fact it's unlike any story I've read. In Armand Inezian's take on the old legend every vampire has a unique ability based upon the sins they committed before they were turned from mortal to vampire.
For example, a priest who had an unhealthy fear of mortality finds that he has the power to be able to show people where they are fated to die.
I found myself wondering what special abilities some of the priests who've been in the news recently might have had, but that's besides the point.
I think my favourite character was Ariel Lockhart of the house of Greyson. A nice play on words here, with a nod towards Armand's publisher. In life she turned a blind eye to terrible crimes being committed around her. Now, as a vampire, she lives in darkness, travelling the Dark Corridor, slipping in and out of shadows at will.
The central character, Jonathan Stoker, was turned by the beautifully named Genevieve Sint Joris because she enjoyed the irony of turning a man named Stoker. Jonathan suffers from clinical depression. As Armand puts it, "Jonathan didn't like to think about families, and the idea of children brought tendrils of depression creeping into his mind."
Ariel Lockhart has the ability to cast 'summoners'; spells so powerful they can rearrange time and space. One such summoner has commanded Jonathan to attend a vampire congregation in Boston. Donnach McRory ( good to see Scottish skulduggery replacing the usual Eastern European vampire variety. ) has demanded the attendance of every vampire at the `Vampcon'. However McRory is himself possessed by a demonic spider creature, so that this congregation will be less about singing and hand clapping and more about carnage and mayhem.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Vampire Story 24 Sep 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
I've just finished this book and really enjoyed it. I'm a bit of a sucker for vampire stories but this is really different. Some amazing stuff goes on, like vampires that shape-shift or turn into giant spider demons. Lots of action all the way through and strong characters. Brilliant!

5.0 out of 5 stars VampCon is terrific. 28 Oct 2012
By Duck Grossberg - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I read / listen to about a dozen books a year, I am reading it for the second time as I write this review, the only other book I have ever read twice in a span of two months is "Ready Player One". There are so many vampire books and It is a genre that I have never really been hooked on, I can't get enough of this book. It is so much more than a vampire book, it's an action, an adventure, a sci-fi, a real roller coaster ride. The book is set in Modern Day Boston and takes you all over the place including another universe!! There is something in this book for everyone. It's a quick read and non stop awesomeness, I am left wanting so much more. I can't wait to see what lies in the future.

5.0 out of 5 stars Could not put it down!!! 18 Oct 2012
By Michael Reed - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I never use to be a big reader. It wasn't until I started reading about topics that interest me. History, true stories and world events eventually became my passion and I couldn't get enough of them.

Then this book (Vampcon) came across my path. I'm not the usual vampire enthusiast. Sure I dressed as one for Halloween in my youth and The Lost Boys is one of my all time favorite movies; but I wasn't really on the recent vampire bandwagon with all the movies and TV shows. But I needed a new book to read so I decided to give this author a shot.

To say it simply, this book is Incredible.
Action packed, lots of drama, comedy, suspense, backstabbing, you name it. Plus the characters are developed so well that I feel as if I know them. I finished the book in 3 days. The only reason it took me that long was because the more I read, the sooner I was done. I didn't want it to be over.

The action never stops. As soon as I thought I knew what was going to happen, I'm thrown a curve ball and the story goes somewhere else. I would finish a chapter and think to myself "ok just one more." 10 chapters later and I'm still saying the same thing.

To say the least, if your looking for an exciting adventure that keeps you begging for more READ THIS BOOK!

I'm not a vampire addict, but after reading this book, I feel as if I've been bitten

My only complaint is that there is no sequel. Well at least not yet. I hope the author decides to write one. I hope you check your reviews Mr. Inezian.

4.0 out of 5 stars No sparkles here 13 Jun 2013
By Kevin Hallock - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
A fast-paced thriller with lots of intriguing characters,and vampires with an incredible variety of powers, although none of them sparkle. :) Highly recommended for readers looking for some vampiric variety.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fast Moving Adventure 4 Jun 2013
By vals_hemi - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
The fast moving adventure starts when Jonathan gets the invitation to Congregation of Houses, a meeting of all vampires and the head honcho. Through the possibilities of losing his son to the crazed vamps, to working with those that created him that he loathed, it all came down to each character pressing on individually to work as a team to take down a magical power that threatened everyone's existence even mortals. I cannot believe all the twists and turns it kept me up most of the night to finish.

If you like characters that have their own path and descriptive personalities this could be for you. The detail of each of the fights, the shifting, the battles all kept my interest.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun Action 4 Jan 2013
By idesofmarch - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I truly enjoyed this book and the pages flew by. Thankfully vampirism is still a "curse" and not something that makes you sparkle. The author is adept at writing interesting villains, especially of Eastern European decent. The author brings us in with a vampire in modern times and through his experiences learn about the creation and history of the vampires. I especially enjoyed that each vampire has a unique gift based on their life's sins. Very interesting and fun.
