Item description for Scenting Hallowed Blood by Storm Constantine...
High Crag on Cornwall's desolate storm-lashed coast is a mysterious place with dark secrets. On these bleak shores, the rebel offspring of the angelic race landed many millennia ago. Their memory was never forgotten and across the centuries, seers, mystics and witches basked in the occult power of this prehistoric landscape, awaiting the rebirth of the Fallen Ones. Yet their modern day descendents, the Grigori, are already among humanity, hidden yet preparing for world dominance as the new millennium approaches. Scenting Hallowed Blood is the second volume in Storm Constantine's acclaimed Grigori trilogy, exploring the myths of the fallen angels and the Nephilim.

More About Storm Constantine

Storm Constantine lives in England.

Pagan's Rejoice! Jul 25, 2002
This book practically drips with Pagan imagery. The mood and feel of the book is very much derived from where the book takes place, in Cornwall's desolate storm-lashed coast. The sea imagery is amazing, not as good as in Sea Dragon Heir, but that is only because of the locations being different. The landscape reflect the inner conflict of Shemyaza and is very appropriate because of this. This book reads faster that the first book or the trilogy and is even harder to put down because of the descriptive nature of Storm's Writing.
Like being on Neptune whit Aeschylus Sep 23, 2001
This book is wonderful. Mixing ancient mythology whit modern Angst, creating an eerie feeling, when you realize that this uncanny fantasy might really say something on the real history of this world (like I felt whit the Wraeththu series). Shem is the disillusioned idealist, a Prometheus that,once freed,feels betrayed by his own people and by humanity,that he feels has abandoned him. Shemyaza and the Titan (a giant,a god,a...Nephilim?)Prometheus:both givers of forbidden knowledge to humans. Read Aeschilus' Prometheus Enchained, then you will notice some similarity whit Shemyaza's story.
Good, but not perfect. Oct 20, 1999
I felt a bit let down reading this after _Stalking Tender Prey_, a book which left me with such high expectations. Constantine's talent for textured prose, distinctive characters, and gleefully ambiguous morality (and sexuality) are still evident, yet (to me) the neo-paganish mysticism introduced becomes overbearing to the point of distraction at times. Still, it was an entertaining read, and I plan on buying the third, final novel.
True to form - and still one of my favorites! Oct 17, 1999
Finally got my hands on the sequel! The ending to Stalking tender Prey left me hanging a bit - but kept me looking for this one!
Storm's usual intricate character development is accentuated by the story line. Still a little homo-erotic, and appealing to the pagan in all of us.
A good read, and well worth my wait. Now if that third would just make it to the U.S.!!!
