* ArtisticLicenseReligion: A variant. The book tries to present the idea that what eventually wound up in scripture was a diluted version of the truth, but some of the more unique ideas presented include the idea that [[spoiler: Azriel, the Archangel of Death who is viewed as a very kind entity in Islam and certain other variations of the Abrahamic faiths, went made and murdered another Archangel.]]

The first book chronicles the arrival of an airplane at JFK airport filled with dead bodies drained of their blood. Dr. Ephraim Goodweather of the CDC is called in to investigate, but is baffled by the virus that seems to have killed these people. That is until a old man provides him with information that this not a virus, but another V-Word: Vampire.
