Vampires, Romance, and dark Celtic mysticism fuse and blaze in this epic tale
set in New York City, Yorkshire, England — and time itself.
Robin Dashwood, a handsome and charming British vampire with long gone aristocratic connections, is about to be thrown into an epic adventure that will shine light upon the rise of the vampire.
A chance encounter in a Manhattan art gallery introduces him to the beautiful Lady Caroline DeBarry and reveals a vicious murder from Robin’s human past. In search of answers to this historical mystery, he returns home to England, and to Caroline who has captured his heart.
As Robin searches for the truth, he finds traces of a far more ancient and shrouded realm than even that of the vampire. This will shake the foundations of vampire lore and its brutal hierarchy, placing Lady Caroline in terrible danger and setting in motion events that will lead to a final bloody confrontation between a revenant army and humankind.
Hawkesmoor is the first book in a trilogy that will continue the eerie adventures of Robin Dashwood – a very British vampire.
Sanjay Singhal’s stories are a mystical fusion of memoir and fiction, the known and the unknown, exquisitely imbuing the earthbound with magical reality. Exploring what it is to be a human in a vast and complex universe, these are journeys to the “other side” where the dead offer consolation and wisdom and the unshakable belief in a loving and universal Great Spirit.
Within this book, I have told my own stories, and some of these are true accounts: curious and varied events which I have witnessed, or in which I took a role. Some of them are humourous, some not so, and others dark with shadows.
These are the small, unexpected moments in our lives, when we realize something has happened: something has changed, and so we stop, and pause, reflecting, before we move forward. These are not ghost stories, but there are ghosts, within them.
