Grayling Part I: Where the World Bleeds White is H.M. Archer's Promethean literary take on good and evil, as played out by a father, his five sons, and their friends. And their enemies. All of the characters are endowed with a profound sense of self and the world around them, the direction and decisions of their lives are intertwined, woven together intricately for better, or more often for worse. The plot line is tight with a clear story arc rife with surprising twists, each chapter leaving the reader with anticipation for the next. This is a story of how even when one makes peace with their circumstances and their dark lot in life, one can still hold onto hope and aspire to something better and more beautiful, even if that hope is a false one. It is the hope, good or evil, dark or light, that keeps one going. Yet, more often than not hope can be incongruous or self-delusional. In tandem, it is also your family, mortal or immortal, that keeps one going. But, family isn't always about one's blood relations. Sometimes it is one's relation to the blood alone. A vampire can explain this to you. Enjoy the read!
