An unlikely romance between a hematologist and a vampire in the early years of the AIDS pandemic is the focus of Scott Miller’s genre-defying riff on vampire legends, American pop culture, and contemporary horror fiction. Part romance, part gothic horror, part bawdy comedy, and part steamy eroticism, In the Blood crosses all boundaries and serves up an entertaining roller coaster ride you’ll never forget. In the Blood tells the story of the vampire Zachary Church and Adam Graham, a gay hematologist with HIV, and their budding relationship in the early era of AIDS. If vampires are the only ones who can't be affected by the AIDS virus, do they have some responsibility to pass on their immunity? And for someone with AIDS, what price is too high for acquiring that immunity? When Adam asks Zach to turn him so he won't die, Zach is torn. He has vowed never to make another vampire, never to subject anyone else to the horrific loneliness he has known for so long. Ultimately, Zach has to choose between condemning Adam to the tormented life of vampirism or watching him die, knowing he could've saved him, knowing that he will be utterly alone once more.
