Chelsea Quinn Yarbro's first Saint-Germain novel, Hotel
Transylvania, was recently nominated as Vampire Novel of
the Century. Her Saint-Germain cycle, now comprised of
more than twenty-five books, is a masterwork of historical
horror fiction. The vampire Count Saint-Germain has
crisscrossed the world many times, seeking love and the
blood of life and seeing humanity at its best and
In Night Pilgrims, Saint-Germain is
living in a monastery in Egypt when he is hired to
guide a group of pilgrims to underground churches in
southern Egypt. The vampire finds a companion in a
lovely widow who later fears that her dalliance with the
Count will prevent her from reaching Heaven.
The pilgrims begin to fall prey to the trials of
travel in the Holy Lands; some see visions and hear the word
of God; others are seduced by desires for riches and
power. A visit to the Chapel of the Holy Grail brings
many quarrels to a head; Saint-Germain must use all his
diplomacy and a good deal of his strength to keep the
pilgrims from slaughtering one another.
