Adult Fiction SIMMONS
Summary: "Simmons writes like a hot-rodding angel." -Stephen Kingnbsp;  An evil legacy comes to life in this classic and ultimately human novel about believable vampires, featuring a brand-new introduction by Dan Simmons.nbsp; Children of the Night will take you to a place that no one knows-yet all of us fear. In a desolate orphanage in post-Communist Romania, a desperately ill infant is given the wrong blood transfusion-and flourishes rather than dies.nbsp; For immunologist Kate Neuman, the infant's immune system may hold the key to cure cancer and AIDS. Kate adopts the baby and takes him home to the States.nbsp; But baby Joshua holds a link to an ancient clan and their legendary leader-Vlad Tşepeş, the original Dracula - whose agents kidnap the child. Against impossible odds and vicious enemies- both human and vampire - Kate and her ally, Father Mike O'Rourke, steal into Romania to get her baby back.nbsp;"A mesmerizing tour through the ghostly, gray tatters of Romania." - Publishers Weekly nbsp;"Simmons gives a chilling description of post-Ceausescu Romania and neatly ties the vampire legend into political history to create a new and clever twist to the idea of the vampire's craving for blood." - Library Journal nbsp;"His best novel ever... Toothsomely well written." - Kirkus nbsp;"Brilliant ideas... The most rigorous and interesting scientific rationale for vampirism I've ever seen... You keep turning the pages." - Locus nbsp;
