Pilate is a drug lord vampire in this re-telling of Christ's final days set in modern times in a Midwest American ghetto. When given another chance to save the Earth's new female Christ, will the re-incarnated Pilate choose to protect Her, or wash his hands in this life as in his first. Be warned: The Harbor is wicked. The violence is graphic and brutal. The terror is palpable. Pilate is not your parents' bible story.... Steven Rage has created a starkly horrifying world of vengeance and redemption, played out on the darkly wicked crime and drug-fueled, post-industrialized streets of The Harbor. These vampire, monster and demon filled re-tellings of familiar bible stories are, most definitely, not for the faint of heart. Steven Rage pulls no punches in these vividly visual feasts of bloody violence. PILATE is the first installment of the ground-breaking Harborside series of Brutal Bible Tales and is available above in both paperback and Kindle editions. Steven Rage is currently working on JONAH JOB: A Brutal Bible Tale.

Rated: Thumbs Up!

Pilate is a vampire drug overlord residing in a part of the city called The Harbor. His rival and enemy is Herod, another vampire drug overlord whose soul purpose is to rule it all and wipe out Pilate and all those that serve him. Human and vampire alike reside in The Harbor, a rundown, sleazy area full of corrupt cops, violence, prostitutes and drugs.

Plata is the hot drug on the market, the one that has so many addicted to it – human and vampire alike. Immanuel, who is also called Cristo and the Savior, is the character of Jesus. She follows in the footsteps of Jesus in his final days. As far as Herod and Pilate are concerned, she needs to be silenced because she’s winning the hearts of the people and stopping them from buying Plata. It’s destroying their business. Herod has a plan to kill her. Pilate plays right into his hands and brings Immanuel to him. It was foretold that her death would save lives. On the brink of her death, Pilate must make a decision to either save her, or let her be raped and tortured by Herod.

By using well-known character names and parts of stories from the Bible, Rage has created a twisted world of violence and evil. The macabre is strewn throughout as the reader engages John the Baptist, Mary Magdalene, Immanuel, all the other prophets, as well as the Savior and healing phenomenon Jesus in the form of a female called Cristo. Rage has come up with an interesting concept of using Bible characters and replacing them for vampire characters, as well as keeping to those character’s personalities and situations. The author has an interesting storytelling style, but doesn’t like to use complete sentences on and off throughout the book. The story is extremely violent, cursing throughout, sexual content and covers all manner of the usage of drugs. It is not for the feint of heart and only those with a drive to read about blood, gore and mega violence should read this vampire tale.
