Once Bitten, Twice Die

The end of the world was just the beginning.

A cure for dementia has disastrously failed. Patients are left crazed, infectious and enraged. The ensuing carnage quickly spreads the disease, and civilisation is decimated.

On London’s outskirts a military base shelters some survivors. The soldiers within must battle against the infected who now roam unchallenged. Tensions are high, relationships fraught, death commonplace.

But if they thought the end of the world was bad enough, their troubles have only just begun…

An ancient menace has long existed in secret alongside humanity – a vampire clan, which has recently encountered the soldiers. Now is their time to emerge from the shadows. First though they have to overcome their own problems. They too have to fight for survival against the infected, and they violently disagree on their approach towards the humans.

Hostilities are rising. It’s only a matter of time now…

“A knockout first novel, very unpredictable. An exciting, new angle on a well-loved genre. You’ll have a great time being infected and bring on the sequels.”

T. Teodorczuk, Evening Standard


The end of the world was just the beginning.

When death is the best option, survival is no longer enough…

With a growing realization that their continued existence bestows upon them a debt to humanity, the survivors look to create a cure for the insanity that has brought civilization to its knees. But that only encourages disagreement and infighting, and comes at a heavy price, bringing various shocks and surprises.

Tensions amongst the vampires are escalating, jeopardizing the very existence of the clan itself. A battle for supremacy seems inevitable and their future is in the balance. How far will Farzin go to achieve his aims – domination of the vampires and humans alike? And how terrible will his vengeance be against any who stand in his path? Their interaction with the humans threatens to increase and not necessarily for the benefit of either group.

Meanwhile the wrathful infected grow ever hungrier…

When every day is a struggle to stay alive, survival of the fittest is never guaranteed.

Twice Bitten, Twice Die

When there’s no one left to hear you scream…

Deaths amongst the survivors are occurring at an unsustainable rate. Numbers are rapidly dwindling. Morale is plummeting. Soon they will be beyond salvation, yet their real task has only just begun. But will anyone remain alive to complete it? Nothing could have prepared the soldiers for what lies ahead. If they thought life was brutal already, they had absolutely no idea…

The vampires are in disarray. Their relationships are becoming blurred, confused and violent. A titanic clash between soldiers and vampires seems imminent but no one’s survival is assured.

In a world where life is unpredictable, the threat from the infected suddenly becomes even more unexpected and menacing. Hostilities are inevitable. Only one thing is certain: there will be blood!



Blood of the Dragon Book Series by Antony J. Stanton

A lady’s death on the road from Constantinople, with consequences reaching down the ages.

A lifetime of military training and a dedication to retribution.

A slowly dawning realisation of the diabolic that lurks just out of sight.

The fifteenth century, war in Central Europe rages between East and West, between Christianity and Islam. A time of knights and chivalry, of conquest and Crusades, of love and life in the bloodiest of human eras.

Constantinople was set to fall to the Ottoman horde, life was precarious and superstition almost reality. This is a tale of the collapse of an empire. A tale of utmost malevolence, an ever-present myth, prowling in the shadows, eternally stalking mankind from just beneath the surface of the light.

With Vlad Dracula, ruler of Wallachia, the Hungarian hero-general John Hunyadi and King Sigismund of Luxembourg, as well as the secretive and highly feared Order of the Dragon, this is a vampire thriller like none other, as historical and realistic a chronicle of the demonic as one is ever likely to read – “Game of Thrones” meets “Dracula”.

“Blood of the Dragon” – epic first book from the thrilling new vampire series that sprawls across the millennia, historic prequels to the bestselling “Once Bitten, Twice Die” series.

No solitary act of violence is ever entirely without consequence..
