The Third Section by Jasper Kent
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE | CONTACT: Jill Maxick at 800-853-7545 |  Praise for Twelve:“Kent’s sprawling historical horror debut . . . brings blood-gushing brutality back to vampire fiction. . . . [Character] self-examination doesn’t impede densely detailed, hard-driving action . . . and the vampires are genuinely scary villains, more vivid than most of the living characters. With no romantic yearning or teen angst in sight, this is just a bloody good tale.” – Publishers Weekly

As the 20th century evolved, rational man turned to science to explain mythology that had pervaded for thousands of years. How could a man be mistaken for a vampire? How could someone appear to have been the victim of a vampire attack? Science, in time, came back with answers that may surprise you.Anemia
A million fancies strike you when you hear the name: Nosferatu!N O S F E R A T Udoes not die!What do you expect of the first showing of this great work?Aren't you afraid? - Men must die. But legend has it that a vampire, Nosferatu, 'der Untote' (the Undead), lives on men's blood! You want to see a symphony of horror? You may expect more. Be careful. Nosferatu is not just fun, not something to be taken lightly. Once more: beware.- Publicity for Nosferatu in the German magazine Buhne und Film, 1922
