Thank you for visiting one of the posts from Change in Regime. This novella is now available on Amazon, and to also make it available on Kindle Unlimited, I have to remove these posts from my blog.

Anyway, here is the cover copy and link:

Like an electric current, arcing from ear to ear through the New York underworld, the word comes; he’s here. The city has a new Master of vampires, House Altau, and the existing, unaffiliated community is now facing a sentence of death.

The storm builds, and one of the leaders of that community, Livia or Julius, must chose to be the lightning conductor to save the rest from destruction. But will that be an acceptable sacrifice to Altau?

And if so, which one of them will it be?

About Mark Henwick

I was born in Africa and left out in the sun too often. An early interest in philosophy and psychology was adequately exorcised by tending bars. And while trying to enroll in a class to read Science Fiction full time, I ended up taking an engineering degree which splendidly qualified me to move into marketing. That in turn spawned a late onset career in creative writing. When not working, I get high by the slightly less conventional means of a small light aircraft. My first books are available on Amazon at

  1. Michael Orton says :

    Now that relationship between J and L is a twist I was not expecting!

    I’m not sure I like where this is heading.
    Can L be permitted to survive?
    If not will J want to live on?

    There have to be casualties from time to time or the world degenerates into “how is the party going to survive this even more certain deathtrap than the previous one” and this world is supposed to be darker than that.

    Contrariwise, one must avoid “Red Shirt Syndrome”. If it became obvious that a character written into the plot thread in a certain way only exists to get killed before the end of the episode then once again the tension is destroyed.

      A fine line for me to negotiate (but not one I can discuss much here, at this stage in the story).

      The Athanate/Were/Adept world is darker than the usual Urban Fantasy. I’ll post separately on this at some other stage.

  2. Justin says :

    So many outcomes! I will fantasize, but hope you will catch me off guard.
