Abandoned by his werewolf lover, the only thing Reylan wants is to return to his vampire life of blood and beautiful boys. It's a solid plan, until his first meal as a single man tries to kill him.
Hoping to free his young would-be assassin from the religious zealots that sent him, Reylan enlists the help of Iain Grieg, a charismatic priest with unsettling knowledge of the night's secrets.
Surrounded by conflicting agendas and an army fuelled by hate, Reylan fights to secure his future, if he can only trust the mysterious priest and bury the ghosts of the past.

Praise for Christian Baines:
"Baines' brave new underworld is well devised, multi-layered, and dense with political and personal agendas--and it's frightening: so much so that I found myself looking over my shoulder more than once at night." FELICE PICANO, author of Like People in History
"Baines has a gift for twisted psyches, playing the supernatural to expose the human evils at play, and a talent for turns of phrases that leave you shuddering even as you turn the page." 'NATHAN BURGOINE, author of Light
"I love the world created here. It has the same feel as Laurel K. Hamilton's Anita Blake Series, with a little more grit, and of course, the added m/m element. There is plenty of paranormal elements involved, some more gruesome than others, but it is a very colorful and interesting story." JUSTJEN, The Blogger Girls
"The story...was just fantastic! I'm just amazed by the imagination the author put into this, from the culprit to the resolution I just couldn't put it down. (I originally said I'd read a chapter or two and then sat and read the entire thing instead.) The ending was a bit heartbreaking in a few different ways and I cried a little, I admit it, but it was so good I only regret it a little. The final page, however, made me cuss. Lol All I can say is, well played Mr. Baines, well played." SARINA, Love Bytes Reviews
"A wickedly subversive wit." JEFFERY ROUND, author of The Dan Sharp Mysteries
"I really enjoyed this book and have great admiration for Baines' literary skill. My reaction to The Orchard of Flesh is that it's something of a mashup of Clive Barker and Noel Coward." ULYSSES, Prism Book Alliance
