Zachary Weaver discovered his affinity for writing at a very early age and has nurtured his passion for it throughout his life. During his high school years, he published many poems and started the outline for his first book. While a student at Penn State, he published his first novel, Sorrow, and is continuing the storyline as a trilogy. When he is not in Jalix’s head, saving Vampyres, Zachary is training with the Army Corps of Engineers or enjoying his work at a BioMed company. He also loves to go snowboarding with friends, as well as spending the occasional relaxing day playing video games with his fiancée and two cats or with his two loving younger brothers.
Vampyres, a genetic variant of humans, were created hundreds of years ago by a virus that now co-exists within them. Being the oldest among them, Kara sculpted a perfect society of her own kind, hidden away from humanity’s curious eyes. Shaping history, they have since become embroiled in continuous war, with the intent of keeping humanity safe from their own virus. As she falls in love, Kara introduces her fiancé to the only world she knows, adding another soldier to her war. Jalix, bewildered and undergoing a tremendous change, struggles with keeping allies and enemies alike at bay, focusing on his own health, as well as the safety of his beloved. Before long, Jalix discovers that he has been unknowingly involved in the Vampyres’ war since before he met Kara, and vows to stay with them for as long as the battle lasts. Fighting their own emotions, the brutality of their enemies, and the conflicts between their own friends, their society realizes that this war is drawing to an end, with the welfare of humans and Vampyres alike at risk. If they survive to see the end, it will be bloody.
