From official release/information:
Back in print, Raven and The Flesh, The Blood, and the Fire are about vampires in Cleveland, Ohio. What could be more radical than vampires in the heartland in an average American city of hardworking families? We've come to expect vampires in classy or classic locations: London, Paris, New York City, and Los Angeles… But here we have vampires where they shouldn't be -- fitting in, among the everyday folks, trying to carve out a safe environment to where their dietary requirements won't raise eyebrows. It's even harder to do when you don't believe in vampires and yet you think you might be one, or if you believe with all your heart that vampires are Satan's tools only now you are one and you still have the same moral code you had before. Swiniarski explores the territory of the normal person in extraordinary circumstances.
Book Description: Finally back in print, Raven and The Flesh, The Blood, and The Fire are two boundary-breaking novels set in Cleveland, Ohio--but is this an average American city with hardworking families striving to fulfill the American dream--or the kind of town where death is anything but final and one's neighbors may not be as normal as they seem?
