.... From the dark, stone cold depths of the great pyramid of Egypt, Khufu arises as an immortal vampire for the first time to stalk the night world for warm human blood. His reign of darkness is unchallenged except for Lar, another ancient immortal who, for some unknown reason, is trying to destroy him.
.... For thousands of years Khufu manages to elude this menace, but in its place he finds another enemy that he can never elude, and that enemy is loneliness. Hundreds of years pass with Khufu trying to ease his loneliness by mingling with mortals during their evening gatherings. It is here that Khufu meets and falls in love with a beautiful Egyptian woman named Lilia that he woos until he wins her love, and who, after a concocted tale of his eyes being vulnerable to sunlight, agrees to become his wife.
.... Time passes swiftly for an immortal, and before Khufu can make his Lilia an immortal so she can spend eternity with him, she suddenly dies. Agonized by this event, Khufu vows never to become close with another mortal again. Thousands more years pass with Khufu traveling the world to keep ahead of his dreaded enemy while at the same time looking for solace. It is not until modern times that he crosses paths with a young woman that he believes to be his Lilia reincarnated.
.... Using all of the charm he has acquired through the years, in a few months the two become close friends and once again Khufu is happy. It is just about this time that Khufu's ancient enemy catches up with him, and unable to capture or destroy Khufu, Lar takes the woman.
.... Believing Lar has already drained Khufu's new love of her blood, Khufu throws all caution aside and starts out with a vengeful passion to find and destroy Lar. The events that follow take many strange twists and turns that lead from the distant past to the future, events that will keep you on the edge of your seat. Enjoy, R.M.

Alone on a dark hill the old clock tower stands
Built of granite and mortar by mortals own hands
Though abandoned and deserted it still stands high
All gothic and majestic reaching up to the sky
But in the blackness of night when mortals are asleep
From the tower of darkness a dark thing does creep
Like a shadowy mist it must search through the night
To devour lost souls and return before light
On warm moonlit nights when lovers walk by
From within the tower comes a lost souls cry
Because deep in the depths of this tower of stone
The thing of darkness and evil has a mortal alone
Gothic and grand the old clock tower stands by day
But if you travel by dark you must go the other way
Because deep in the shadows so dark and so deep
Hides the creature of evil that make menís souls weep.
