If you’ve poked around this website or spoken with the members of the Geeky Giving team, it’s not a surprise that our endeavor includes more than excellent, exclusive fiction. (We’ve already started reading stories, and so good.) We have quite the stockpile of books, nerd swag, and more to share with our supporters.
Today, we have copies of The Greyfriar and The Geomancer both by Clay Griffith and Susan Griffith. If you haven’t dipped your toes into the Vampire Empire world, you’re going to thank us for this giveaway. Both novels are set in an alternative world, a remnant of the British Empire, and are action-packed with a nice dose of pulp and steampunk.
The series begins with The Greyfriar, but if you’re already indoctrinated into the awesome that is the duo Griffith, we still have you covered. The Geomancer, which just released, is the first in a continuation series that continues in the same world, but with different characters. You can start with either book, and both are complete page-turners.

ABOUT THE BOOKS
In the year 1870, a horrible plague of vampires swept over the northern regions of the world. It is now 2020 and a bloody reckoning is coming. Princess Adele is heir to the Empire of Equatoria, a remnant of the old tropical British Empire. When she becomes the target of a merciless vampire clan, her only protector is the Greyfriar, a mysterious hero who fights the vampires from deep within their territory. Their dangerous relationship plays out against an approaching war to the death between humankind and the vampire clans.
The first book in a trilogy of high adventure and alternate history. Combining rousing pulp action with steampunk style, the Vampire Empire series brings epic political themes to life within a story of heartbreaking romance, sacrifice, and heroism.
The uneasy stalemate between vampires and humans is over. Adele and Gareth are bringing order to a free Britain, but bloody murders in London raise the specter that Adele’s geomancy is failing and the vampires might return. A new power could tilt the balance back to the vampire clans. A deranged human called the Witchfinder has surfaced on the Continent, serving new vampire lords. This geomancer has found a way to make vampires immune to geomancy and intends to give his masters the ability to kill humans on a massive scale.
The apocalyptic event in Edinburgh weakened Adele’s geomantic abilities. If the Witchfinder can use geomancy against humanity, she may not have the power to stop him. If she can’t, there is nowhere beyond his reach and no one he cannot kill.
From a Britain struggling to rebuild to the vampire capital of Paris, from the heart of the Equatorian Empire to a vampire monastery in far-away Tibet, old friends and past enemies return. Unexpected allies and terrible new villains arise. Adele and Gareth fight side-by-side as always, but they can never be the same if they hope to survive.
