Publisher's Description

Judas hung himself in a place known as the Akeldama or Field of Blood.

But what if his death didn't end his betrayal?

What if his tainted blood seeped deep into the earth, into burial caves, causing a counterfeit resurrection of the dead?

Gina Lazarescu, a Romanian girl with a scarred past, has no idea she is being sought by the undead.

The Collectors, those released from the Akeldama, feed on souls and human blood. But there are also the Nistarim, those who rose from their graves in the shadow of the Nazarene's crucifixion--and they still walk among us, immortal, left to protect mankind.

Gina realizes her future will depend on her understanding of the past, yet how can she protect herself from Collectors who have already died once but still live?

The Jerusalem's Undead Trilogy takes readers on a riveting journey, as imaginative fiction melds with biblical and archaeological history.

Publisher's Weekly

The first in Wilson’s Jerusalem’s Undead trilogy mixes vampires and religion with awkward results. After a prologue depicting Judas Iscariot’s suicide in A.D. 30, the action shifts to 1989, near Jerusalem, where a work crew accidentally awakens the evil Collectors of Souls, whose spirits have been trapped in ground stained by Judas’s blood. Once the collectors assume corporeal form, they begin to feast on human victims. Their paths eventually cross with a Romanian girl, Gina Lazarescu, who may be one of the Nistarim, the 36 people on whom the world depends to hold back the Final Vengeance. Stilted prose (“His stare collided with Ariston’s and, like one icicle jabbed at another, glanced off in a shower of black splinters and chipped courage”) and thin characterization limit this one’s appeal. Wilson is the author of two novelizations, Facing the Giants and Flywheel. (Oct.) Copyright 2008 Reed Business Information.

Author/Artist Review

    Tell us a little about yourself.  I love Jesus. I love fiction. I love stories that explore life's complexities, while discovering some light in the darkness. I hope to capture some of that tension through interesting characters and plots.

    What was your motivation behind this project?  As a kid, I traveled with my missionary parents in Romania. Later, I heard the traditional vampire stories centered in that region and found myself intrigued at the spiritual battle that is so inherent. I thought, why not mix the ideas of "The Screwtape Letters" with the excitement of "This Present Darkness"? Of course, my novels spin off in their own directions.

    What do you hope folks will gain from this project?  First and foremost, I hope to provide great entertainment. If I wanted to preach sermons, I'd write non-fiction. That said, I do hope to challenge readers to see the world in a different way, to have their eyes opened to new things and spiritual realities.

    How were you personally impacted by working on this project?  I was especially intrigued, as I researched the trilogy, by the fact that demons throughout the Bible seem to interact with the physical world only through a host, while the heavenly angels eat, take people by the hand, and appear physically often times. Could it be that our physical senses are so subject to temptation precisely because the Enemy of our souls has been stripped of that ability himself and tries to subvert it in God's creation? These types of ideas kept me turning pages of the Bible while thinking through the plot.

    Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists?  I love C.S. Lewis and J.R.R. Tolkien, as well as Stephen Lawhead. I'm a big fan of Brandilyn Collins, Ted Dekker, Robert Liparulo, Tim Downs, and Melanie Wells (to name a few). I keep growing and learning. I love books and hope to pass on that joy to others.

    Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know:  A vampire book in the Christian bookstore? That's the obvious question. Well, my series is based on biblical history, with an ultra-modern spin on the idea of evil. Really, though, like an great story, it's about human struggles to understand identity and purpose. Why are we here? Is there a Creator? If so, how are we to interact with Him?
