When a vampire loses his love of the hunt he is left with nothing but his hunger…
That is precisely where Joe finds himself at the beginning of Hell and the Hunger. He simply doesn’t want to be alive any longer but it hurts too much not to feed. Spiraling slowly into a deep pit of melancholy, the once proud hunter has been reduced to combing bars for drunken women to feed on. Then he finds her.
Evelyn is a wonderful enigma. She lacks the emptiness that normally sits behind the eyes of the humans Joe hunts and awakens longings in him that he hasn’t felt in so long they feel foreign. He follows her on a journey that leaves him burned, battered, and nearly dead.
By the time Joe realizes that there was a reason he and Evelyn were brought together, she has been taken. With the aid of an old priest in an abandoned cathedral, Joe begins to regain his former glory. He needs to remember who he was before he became a nightmare lurking in the shadows. He will have to fight to the center of Hell and back if he wants to save his one reason in the Universe to live.
