As one of the fans said : "Book 2 ended in such a way that now you must read the next one. So many questions were answered, but yet still hundreds were asked."
Book 3 takes place about half a year later.
The book can be downloaded here.

It's been six months since Arthur woke up from his 17-year old coma. He lives in a world of doubt and can't distinguish what is real and what is not.
There are two kinds of vampires; those who were conceived by two vampires and those who were earlier humans and got bitten by a vampire. The difference between those two is that the first type, known as a pure vampire is usually stronger and it ages for twenty five years, then the process stops and it keeps the young look forever. The second one known as a trans, is slightly weaker, but he never ages.
Vampires are nocturnal creatures, they cannot endure daylight (UV light to be precise). They live in clans or nests which are usually old houses in remote places outside the city or in basements or abandoned buildings in cities.
Vampires have to drink blood to survive. They must supplement certain elements that are in blood itself. They also have several powers:
- They are stronger and faster than humans
- They hardly ever sleep, and if they do it takes weeks or even years.
- They can climb walls
- Some of them can heal instantly
Vampires are vulnerable to several things: they have strong reaction to garlic, as it burns their skin, but only a large amount of that vegetable can kill them. Dead man’s blood can both injure and kill vampires. If it gets to some major artery or vein the poison will kill the victim instantly. Silver does the same work. The most deadly however is Ultra Violet light that burns their cells leaving only ash.
List of vampires from the book.
Reiz- one of the most powerful vampires in the world. He is the holder of the first part of the Seal of Solomon.
Dhampirs are similar to vampires. They were born by having one of their parents as a vampire. Some of them choose to work with the vampires, other against. They have some features of the vampires but most of them are invulnerable to UV light or dead man’s blood. To kill them one should use explosives, as no one is ever sure whether silver, garlic or dead man’s blood can kill them.
Dhampirs mentioned in ASATs:
Zombies, undead or walking corpses (dead) are corpses that have been brought back to life by powerful demon: pure demon, sorcerer or a witch. Their brain is mostly inactive and their body is controlled by the cerebellum and some parts of the brain. The walking dead is not aware of its previous life and it seeks to satisfy its basic need- food. It will feed on anything that lives, but it prefers human meet. It is believed that when a zombie kills someone, they turn into zombie. It is partly true only when it is working by an additional spell. If the secondary spell is not cast, the zombie’s victim will not come back into live.
To kill a zombie one must either decapitate them or shot them directly into forehead which will deactivate their control centre.
In ASAT we can meet zombies in Part 2 and 4 and the whole book 2 and 3
