The Story - As Revealed On A Mysterious Clay Tablet Unearthed Near The Dead Sea...

The fate of the Kingdom of Babylonia hangs by a gossamer thread.

The ancient Babylonian gods are in a cataclysmic struggle with the Jewish god.

King Nebuchadnezzar has been cursed to become a beast, and murderous traitors surround Queen Amytis and her children.

Evil roams the streets at night and pregnant women are dying from a mysterious illness.

Arwia, the young High Priestess of Marduk, prays to the gods and asks them to send a saviour.

Ereshkigal, the noble Queen of the Underworld, hears her prayer and sends Namtar, her dragon messenger, to rescue Longinus from Asmodeus' clutches in Hell and carry him back to ancient Babylon.

Ereshkigal reveals to Longinus that the terrifying demoness, Lamashtu, is intent on opening the seven gates of the underworld and letting the dead spew forth across the land. She asks him to become her champion and save the people of Babylon. Longinus, smitten by her beauty and the justness of her cause, agrees.

To restore order to the cosmos, he must confront Lilith, the Queen of the Night, and free Lamashtu's horrifying, demon nemesis - Pazuzu, the Dark Angel of the Four Winds. However, he must first defeat Lamashtu's servants, the powerful, vampire necromancers and sorcerers - the Blood Priests of Akkad.

Can Longinus; Arwia, the High Priestess; Bashaa, the dashing, young captain of the King's Guard; Belteshazzar (Daniel), the wise man; and Queen Amytis save Babylon from destruction?

Can Ereshkigal shield Longinus from Asmodeus' power until his quest is completed?

Can Queen Amytis have her loving husband returned to her?

Can Arwia and Bashaa ever find happiness together when the gods frown upon their love?

Can Belteshazzar reconcile being both a Jew and a Babylonian - and regain his lost faith in his God?

The answers are written in the stars, and only the gods can tell.

Armed with the Spear of Destiny, mounted on his Arabian stallion, Safanad, and accompanied by Urbarra, an old grey wolf, Longinus must ride forth into battle.

The gods have decreed "Fight evil with a greater evil" and the omens are propitious for a Babylonian adventure of epic proportions as Longinus fights desperately to complete his quest and save his friends.

This is a time for heroes - at the Gate of the Gods - in the Golden City of Babylon.

Longinus The Vampire: Babylon

***Some Reviews from Amazon UK and US***

5 Stars: "Epic!"

"This has got to be the most epic and fantastically addicting Trilogy I've read in ages!
A true page-turner!
This tale should be made into a film!
I hated to see this story end!"

5 Stars: "One hell of a good ride"

"What is not to like about a tale of heroes, evil demons, and time travel. Supernatural thrills and love story to boot."

5 Stars: "Longinus"

"Another brilliant book by Alan Kinross, who has become one of my favourite authors. I look forward to many more (hopefully) in the Longinus series."

5 Stars: "I am on the 3rd book and enjoying it as much as the first 2. Thanks Alan."

5 Stars: "The Adventure of Longinus Continues"

"In this novel, Longinus gets to prove that he is indeed a hero. A man of the people. Through thick and thin he fights all the obstacles and evils that surround him and comes out as the savior, sent to save Babylon.

Unlike the previous books where there is a lot of horror and bloody fights, this is a neatly crafted novel that focuses a lot more on romance and adventure. Through fresh new characters (Bashaa and Arwia), we see their struggles as the tradition and culture of ancient Babylon, try to hinder them from being together. But somehow fate pulls them together.

All characters in the novel are well developed and the environment in which events take place is awesomely described. You don’t have to be too imaginative to get the picture that the author is trying to portray. Another thing I liked the humor that is throughout the novel, especially with characters like Hunzuu.

The struggle for power between the gods is maintained throughout the novel and you really do not know what to expect. Lots of suspence and unxepected turn of events that keep the novel interesting. Did I mention Longinus time travels? Another amazing feature. :-)

I am now left wondering what the author has in store for us in the future. I can’t get enough of this series of novels.

Definitely my best buy of the year!"

4 Stars: "Entertaining"

"Entertaining and historically grounded."

5 Stars: "Such an amazing series"

"I am a fan of all things vampire but author Alan Kinross has really taken things to an entirely different level with his "Longinus The Vampire" series. While you could read this latest book as a standalone, I have no idea why you'd want to as the entire series is simply outstanding.

This mix of vampire lore, adventure, and high fantasy is beyond original and the writing is some of the best that I've come across this year. Longinus isn't your typical vampire here. He is definitely a hero and the circumstances presented in the story make him easy to get behind in his quest to save Babylon.

There are some surprising elements to the story that make this a page-turner with some unexpected twists, and it is probably a series that I will be re-reading in the near future. It's that good. Definitely recommend this one."

5 Stars: "Brilliant - a book I couldn't put down!"

"When I noticed that a third Longinus the Vampire book had been published, I could not resist adding it to my book collection for a read. I really enjoyed the other two stories, however I often find that sequel stories aren't as good as the originals - but I had nothing to worry about! Once I had started reading, I couldn't stop.

Full of exciting adventures, romance and humour, I would definitely recommend this to anyone. Alan Kinross is an incredible writer and has undeniable talent in creating characters that envelop the reader in the storyline and make you want to continue reading to the end.

Although it is the third in the series, this could be read as a stand-alone story, however if you have time to read all three, I can guarantee you won't regret it! All three stories are extremely high quality and well written, creating the perfect series."

5 Stars: "Incredible read, would recommend"

"Alan Kinross has truly outdone himself again with this third installation of the Longinus the Vampire story. The characters stories are well developed and flow almost seamlessly from the initial two stories. They must work together to save Babylon, leading to an epic adventure, with violence, romance and everything in between, including many more humorous conversations and situations. Even an evil demoness is added to the mix of the incredible story. The quality of Kinross' story telling only seems to excel with each Longinus addition.

To save giving away too much of the storyline, I will just end with saying that I would definitely recommend this book to anyone debating whether to read it. It is a great addition to the other two stories and definitely worth a read, even if you haven't read the previous stories in the series."

5 Stars: "The Sexy Sinbad of Vampires"

"Bloody hell! That was some story!

This is an excellent third book by Kinross. Through Longinus's eyes (and the other characters) he paints a living breathing picture of life in ancient Babylon. Kinross is obviously a fan of this period and never misses a chance to teach us something new about the Babylonians e.g. I now know where the word Honeymoon comes from! It's little snippets of information like this that make the story so interesting and entertaining. Kinross sucks you in and amazes you with the people, culture and wonders of Babylon.

It's a lusty exciting book and has less horror and more humour and romance than his last novels. Mind you the main villain is an evil bag of a demoness and the dark side of Kinross's imagination is still bubbling away in the background. He shows you just enough of her horrific doings so that he scares the pants off you. She is defintely NOT something that you want to bump into on a dark night!

I really liked the way he built up the relationship between Longinus and his war horse and the old wolf who travels with them. It was very touching in places and funny in others. Ereshkigal (the queen of the underworld) is another sad and memorable character. As per usual, there's a lot of Machiavellian plots and sub plots with gods, demons, and humans trying to get the upper hand. We can guess that many of our favourite characters are going to die - we just don't which ones. Kinross keeps us hoping and guessing until the end.

Longinus's final battle with Lamashtu and her demons is thrilling and the ending is real shocker. Then just when most stories would finish Kinross adds a few more chapters to surprise us even more and leave us stunned.

I've no idea how he will top this great book. But I hope he does and Longinus (my fiancée now calls him 'Sexy Sinbad') escapes from the tortures of Hell and continues his dark and exciting adventures.

Until then - Hail Longinus! The saviour of Babylon!"
