Luminaries of Clan Tzimisce must put aside old rivalries & come together to decide what, if anything, will be done about Vlad Dracula, who may have just gotten himself elected President of the USA.
A Grimaldi revenant, bound in service to the Tzimisce Clan through ancient pact, has reached out to the elders of that hoary line with shocking and alarming news. A vampire, it seems, has pulled enough wool over enough eyes to ascend to the highest political office in the Americas: the very leader of the free world itself! Worse, the revenant says he has proof that it is none other than Vlad Dracul, a fallen prince of the Tzimisce equally revered and reviled, owing allegiance to no side but his own in the great Jyhad.
The last time Dracula raised his cursed head in public the whole Clan suffered; has he learned the error of his ways? Can he be brought to heel? Can the most fractious and independent-minded of the Clans come together as one to exterminate this embarrassment to the blood once and for all? Or have the walls that divide them just gotten ten feet higher?
Young Snow is marrying, but will anyone guess her secret? & will the Evil Queen really dance to death at their wedding? A realistic re-telling of the classic tale; fairly dark, slightly fantasy.
We all know the story, but the original, darker version never made it into a Disney movie. This is a world where glass is so expensive and rare that anything like a full-size mirror might be thought to have magical properties. Where dwarves are shunned by society, where a fourteen year old girl can be a pawn in a political marriage, and where the cold winter chill affects everything. The handsome Prince from the neighboring kingdom has arrived at the castle and effectively seized the throne. With him is the Princess Snow White, the fairest of them all, long thought dead. Their wedding will take place in 3 hours, at which time the Prince has decreed that the Evil Queen will dance in red hot irons until she dies. But her advisor has insisted that the wedding party have a moral and religious duty to stay with her until the appointed time. The "happy" couple have reluctantly agreed.
