I would post the entire press release that I received, but since Pat’s Fantasy Hotlist has already done so, you can read that HERE :) Also, Realms of Speculative Fiction has more links to FREE READING HERE.

Finally, here’s an interesting press release that I received and was also mentioned on
The Book Swede:

AUSTIN, TX – Technohorror author and horror industry entertainment journalist
Gabrielle S. Faust announces the release of the first novel in her apocalyptic vampire series, Eternal Vigilance, Book One: From Deep Within the Earth, by publisher Immanion Press (Stafford, UK), owned and operated by legendary fantasy author Storm Constantine.

Forward by Bram Stoker and International Horror Guild Award–winning horror writer, fiction editor of the online horror publication
Chiaroscuro, and a nationally syndicated commentator on genre film for the Public Radio Satellite System show, Movie Magazine International, Michael Marano.

Eternal Vigilance, described as “if Anne Rice went cyberpunk”, is the futuristic tale of the vampire Tynan Llywelyn. After a century of Sleep, Tynan has awoken to find the world he once knew utterly obliterated by a brutal war of epic proportions. In a new apocalyptic society, bitterly divided by magic and technology, the Tyst Empire has found that a hundred years of global domination is not enough to sate their thirst for power. They have discovered the secret of the vampire race and have designed a plan to seize their own sinister form of immortality with the help of an ancient vampiric god. The Phuree, a rebel uprising that has been engaged in a bloody war with the Tyst since the beginning of the new regime, have obtained the knowledge of Lord Cardone's plans and have allied themselves with the remaining Immortal clan. The powerful Phuree oracle, Nahalo, has had a vision that in Tynan alone lays the power to defeat the vampiric god and the dictatorship. Cast into the midst of a global war between magic and technology, mortals and vampires, in a new world he is still struggling to define, Tynan must make the harrowing decision to save the world he so bitterly detests or stand and watch as humanity is destroyed by a primordial evil beyond all imagining...

What the literary world is saying:

Eternal Vigilance is the main artery leading to the heart of all vampire stories. Not since Interview With a Vampire has there been a greater tale of the undead. My mouth became dry reading it. My pulse quickened. This book makes you thirsty for bloodlust.
Gabrielle Faust is the queen of vampire fiction.” –Eric Enck, Author of The Reckoning & Ghost of a Chance

“Like if Anne Rice had gone cyberpunk.
Gabrielle Faust is an author of immense talent, and Eternal Vigilance keeps the reader enthralled from the first page to the last.” –Sire C├ędric, Author of Angemort & Dreamworld

"
Gabrielle Faust’s new book, Eternal Vigilance, is Haiku pumped to the max! You can smell the roses, but first, you feel the prick of the thorns, and you drink the slow, seeping blood. Lock the door, turn off the telephone, pour a glass of fine Cabernet and immerse yourself into Faust’s world…a 'world that fears silence, a culture that never breathes'. In her world, vampires are romantic, street smart, and, yes, dangerously sexy. Trust me, you will enjoy the trip." –Gary Kent, Director of L.A. Bad & Producer of The House Seven Corpses, Author of Shadows & Light: Journeys With Outlaws in Revolutionary Hollywood

Faust is currently at work on the second novel in the Eternal Vigilance series, which she hopes to have turned over to
Immanion Press by the end of the summer, 2008. She also continues to pursue her career as an author, illustrator and freelance journalist/entertainment critic for such publications as Fear Zone, Doorways Magazine, Darkened Horizons and Fatally Yours Reviews.

Eternal Vigilance, Book One: From Deep Within the Earth was officially released on April 21st.
Gabrielle S. Faust kicked off her 2008 book tour on Friday, April 25th as a selected author to participate in the Nebula Awards author signings. She is currently scheduling appearances and signings at conventions and bookstores nationwide to occur throughout the year.

Personally, I’m a big fan of
Storm Constantine’s work, I love anything that has to do with vampires, and I just can’t get enough cyberpunk. In short, Eternal Vigilance just sounds like my kind of book :)
