Summary of the previous episodes: Viorel has been tortured by his supposed family who wanted to have him burn in the sun. Strangely enough the sun didn't burn him as expected but Viorel has no memory of who he is. Following the advises of his supposed father, he left Sighișoara and is now traveling to the West. After some skirmish in a previous city, he found refuge on a boat. Viorel is now in Vienna. The little problem is that the guy at the inn was a bit of an asshole and helped capture Viorel thinking he was a vampire, which he is but nobody needs to know. Now there is a huge man (which I call the colossi) taking care of Viorel and a priest. They brought a girl. Torture my holy water... Fail. Viorel managed to confuse everyone, now he would like to get out of here. But the girl seems pretty useless. They still managed to escape and he left the girl to the care of the boat lady before going back to have two words with his captors but his power of persuasion were failing him. The priest wanted to crack a deal but Viorel is not really up to help his enemies. He finally got some blood but he can't risk to stay in Vienna. He travel to Linz were he stays a bit to learn German.
Viorel wanted to go to Praha but redirect himself toward Augsburg instead where he wants to get a horse, except that the horses are a bit scared of his vampirism and maybe something else. Viorel is really not a horse expert. Then he comes into an altercation with couple of people, he wants some fear in his blood. The girl Viorel has found seemed to enjoy the game. Viorel prepares for the nightmares that come with a feast of blood, in a rush to leave, he cross the dukedom of Lorrain.
We introduced Sorina, three weeks after the beginning of Viorel's escape.
Viorel dreamed of Sorina and woke up not really remembering anything. Traveling to Paris, he arrives at "La cour des miracles". He is rescued by a stranger who turned out to be Nicolas Flamel, the alchemist he was looking for. Nicolas does some strange experiment without Viorel's agreement. Some people are looking for Nicolas's secrets. On the other side of Europe, Sorina awakes and Viorel's past in haunting him. Viorel discovered that he can change into a wolf but that's not the easiest thing to handle.

Now, let's continue with Vampire Heart, right where we left of last week.
The book was showing a wooden artefact that could be carved to carry word repelling for vampire. It was the first time I saw it or heard of it. I wasn’t sure it would work, it needed to be charged by intention, it was complex alchemy. Even if Nicolas could make one, it would take months maybe years to cover the entire city with them. I looked at him incredulous that he could have thought it enough and better than directly confronting the vampires.

You use your method, I use mine,” I said.

I was convinced that I would solve our vampire problem before sunrise. I stood up not willing to pursue this conversation. I didn’t feel like eating anyway and I knew that Nicolas was going to push his plate on the side of the table and continue to read. I went to lie on my bed. I needed to think and to concentrate about the fights.


I opened my eyes to see my right hand above me as if I was trying to grab Sorina whoo had been going away. I pulled it down to my eyes. I didn’t remember falling asleep but this was definitely not the best way to wake up. I was thirsty not the usual kind of thirst it was intense as if I hadn’t drink anything for weeks it was a vampire thirst something I had forgotten when I lost my memory, the need for blood. I stroke my eyes more my left hand was clinging at the bed sheet trying to get away from the thirst. I was feeling weak, I could hear the voices of Perenelle and Nicolas down in the kitchen, I could hear their heart beat. I stood up and walked to the window. I knew what I had to do but drinking was the only thing I could think about. Drinking and Sorina. My head was spinning. I had the strange feeling that the blood wasn’t enough, I was scared of the thirst. Sorina. Why was Sorina coming to my mind like this with this new thirst? I could feel my heart racing in my chess trying to pump on the non-existent blood. It was painful. I didn’t know what would happened to a vampire without blood but I didn’t feel like figure it out now. Since I was in Praha I had behaved, hunting only once. My carving might have come from it. I opened the window, too my sword and my short blade and jumped on the border. It was dark, that was perfect, I climbed on the roof and started to run, I could hear my heavy steps on them, I might have woken up anyone trying to sleep in the neighbourhood but I couldn’t care less. I felt like I was running for my life.

  1. I can't wait to see what he does. And now I'm thinking he possibly sired Sorina, since he is feeling such a thirst like she is?
