Vampyrrhic cover

    Simon Clark is not an author to let you down -- the blood doesn't flow through his text so much as pump arterially into the reader's face
    Vampyrrhic is a dark and powerful novel which starts slowly and innocently and builds to a crescendo of violence and fear. Be prepared to sleep with the light on until the memories of the horror dim
    Peterborough Evening Telegraph

'Maximilian saw heads dart down at the throats, then the heads twisted from side to side like dogs gnawing at a bone. When he next saw the youths, their throats were torn; blood pumped vibrantly, squirting in crimson jets as high as his shoulders. Then the heads came down again. And this time they looked like so many pigs jostling for food at the trough. And the sound of hungry mouths eagerly feeding was loud to his ears...'


Not far from the coastal town of Whitby is Leppington, nestling in the purple hills of the North Yorkshire Moors. Quiet, unassuming, a forgotten backwater – yet beneath Leppington's streets terrifying creatures stir. They are driven by ancient passion that has become obsession. They are united in their burning hunger. They share an unending craving. They are Nosferatu. And they have the power to drain your will to resist. To drain it so utterly that you will cheerfully, gladly, eagerly surrender yourself to their sharp, brutal teeth.
