Product Overview

"A Feast in Exile draws readers back to the time when the Mongol hordes of Timur (known in the West as Tamerlane) swept across fourteenth-century India and Asia. Delhi's civilized veneer crumbles along with its walls. Foreigners, which the vampire Saint-Germain-here called Sanat Ji Mani-surely is, lose their positions, homes, wealth, and sometimes their lives, if they cannot escape the falling city.
Before he can flee Delhi, Sanat Ji Mani must ensure the safety of Avasa Dani, his beautiful ward, who has been abandoned by her husband. Sanat Ji Mani's love has awakened Avasa Dani's every sense; even she will become a vampire upon her death, but she finds no terror in this fate.
Avasa Dani and Rojire, Sanat Ji Mani's servant, successfully make their way out of Delhi, but Sanat Ji Mani himself is trapped. His life is bought by his skills with medicine, but, at Timur's command, he must travel-by day, and exposed to the sun-with the conqueror's army. Crippled and unable to escape, he knows that his vampire nature will soon be revealed, and then...
Avasa Dani, with a worried Rojire at her side, considers her options as a woman without a visible male protector in a land and time ruled by men. While one of Sanat Ji Mani's allies searches desperately for the missing vampire, Saint-Germain and a young acrobat, with whom he has escaped from Timur's forces, make their slow and painful way to freedom. The journey changes them both forever.

Author Info
Chelsea Quinn Yarbro
Chelsea Quinn Yarbro wanted to write from the age of 4, but it wasn't until 1970, when she was 28, that she started to write professionally. She went to San Francisco State College (now University) from 1960 to 1963, when she went to work in her family's cartography business. She also became a counselor for mentally disturbed children, a job she held for two years. In 1970, when the cartography business failed, Yarbro decided to give writing professionally a try, eventually selling her first novel in 1976. In 1978 she introduced her longest-lasting character, Count Saint-Germain, in HOTEL TRANSYLVANIA. The Saint-Germain novels, which follow the "life" of a 4,000-year old vampire through the ages, have proven very popular, many of them becoming bestsellers. Yarbro is a believer in the occult and has published several books of conversations that she and others claim to have had with a spirit named Michael. In addition to writing, she is a professional tarot reader, having taught it from 1974 to 1979. She has also worked as a musician and voice teacher.
From the Publisher
Annotation This, the 14th novel exploring the adventures of Count Saint-Germain, vampire, is set at the turn of the 14th century. While trying to protect his lover, the vampire Sanit Ji Mani (who will come to be known as Saint-Germain) is captured in Delhi by a Mongol warlord and separated from his trusted companions.
Editors Note In the fourteenth century, Count Saint-Germain's vampiric identity could be threatened when he is captured by the Mongol conqueror Timur-I, while Tulsi, a beautiful acrobat, is torn between her love for the count and her fears of becoming a vampire, and Avasi Dani, the count's former lover, must adjust to her new vampire life and as woman without a protector in a perilous era.
