Book Description

New York City’s oldest resident hasn't aged a day. Beneath his youthful facade lurks an ancient menace. Experience the nightmare of eternal damnation through the depraved psyche of a nameless villain. Lose yourself in this antihero's shattered mind as he drifts between past and present, dreams and reality.

In the tradition of Gothic vampire horror, An Endless Hunger is a poetic and harrowing journey told in a daringly provocative voice—that of the monster.

Editorial Reviews

From the Author

I began writing An Endless Hunger in the summer of 1998 and worked on it slowly for nearly ten years. It could be said that this story is what started it all.

An Endless Hunger is an abstract read that will leave you full of questions, as damnation should.

About the Author

Narcisse Navarre was born in Habana, Cuba in 1975. She grew up surrounded by nature in a world nearly devoid of media. Prompted by her father's nightly tales of the Greek Gods, folklore and magic, Narcisse's imagination blossomed into an extraordinary force in her life.

In 1984 she emigrated to the United States where she was able to realize her dream of becoming an artist, poet and author. Spiritual and passionate, Narcisse is an avid world traveler and adventure seeker. Whether she is wreck diving, zipping through Belizian jungles or strolling through Roman ruins, Narcisse is always looking for way to incorporate her experiences into her writing.

Currently, Narcisse is co-authoring The Books of Lirios, a trilogy of dark fantasy novels and Naera's Daughter, Book One of Laremlis. For more information visit Khajj.com and NarcisseNavarre.com.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hungry for more... April 28, 2012
By Azodnem
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I have always considered myself a "vampire-purist". Bloodsuckers shouldn't sparkle. "An Endless Hunger" by Narcisse Navarre harkens back to the time when the literary genre of vampires was indeed about the monster within... not what they wore. "An Endless Hunger" delivers, and leaves you bloodthirsting for more.

5.0 out of 5 stars An intense psychological blood feast April 24, 2012
By Rick G
Format:Kindle Edition
If you're a fan of Francis Ford Coppola's movie rendition of Bram Stoker's Dracula then An Endless Hunger will be very appealing to you. Told in first person narrative, this story paints a picture of vivid imagery coupled with heavy metaphor.

The story unfolds quite literally through the eyes, ears, and other senses of the main undead antagonist. While first person POV isn't uncommon, it is rare to find a story that delves so deep into it. Normally one feels like they're sitting right behind the main character's eyes. Here, you are this character. Nestled deep within their cerebral cortex, you are forced to experience every bit of anguish, confusion, and despair that he does. Fans of Anne Rice and other similar brooding vampires will most certainly enjoy the tour de force through the unsettled mind of this undead creature.

I will caution that the wonder of this book might also be its potential downfall for some readers. This is not a typical `beginning - primary conflict - ending' type book. Those seeking such a novel may wish to look elsewhere. Navarre doesn't paint everything with a crystal clear brush, preferring instead (at least in my opinion) to let the reader draw their own conclusions regarding many of the events. In truth, I feel this is one of those stories which you may have to read through more than once to get a sense of things. Having gone through it twice now myself, I also find this is one of those works where you'll find something new in each read through. However, this is all more than doable, because for all of its intensity, An Endless Hunger is a short read, clocking in at less than 50 pages.

The only critiques I would offer are that I would have loved to have seen a longer story here.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Dark Tapestry April 27, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
Narcisse's work is a wonderfully dark noir weave of poetic metaphor. It is a first person vignette exploring the dark recesses of one of the genre's classic creatures, the vampire. Narcisse's greatest strength is her use of descriptive language, which brings the setting and characters to life. The story suffers from a certain disjointedness, which is perhaps an intentional reflection of the tormented mind of the protaganist, but results in some confusion for the reader. There were a couple of points of conflict and confusion for me storywise, and when blended with flashbacks and other goings-on it leaves for a bit of a muddied middle. Though a short tale, it may have benefited from some cutting to make for a tighter read. As beautiful and dark as the language may be, it hsould still lead one somewhere. The lead character's speech is also proceded by the use of a dash as opposed to quotation marks, which took me a moment (I assumed it was internal monologue at first), but was a relatively quick adjustment. In fact dashes seem to be a favorite language mechanic of the tale for Narcisse, as they appear like drops of blood on nearly every page. The tale ends strong, if unfulfilled, as the vampire is left little changed and still seeking. In that vein, I hope Narcisse continues in the future with this character, that we may partake again with him. This work is a strong offering, and I only see Narcisse's work continuing to improve.

*Review based on advance copy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Must read April 23, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
For the past few years, I've shied away from reading anything in the vampire genre. So finding this book was like finding a diamond in the rough. An absolute must read for the vampire fan who loves the story of torment, anguish and solitude. Right from the opening sentence, the author pulls you into the psyche of her tormented vampire. I'm a fan of the darker side of the vampire and the book left me wanting more. An excellent read that if you share the same tastes as me, you'll love this book too. Many thanks to the author for excellent work.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must read for the vampire aficionado. April 22, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
There is a mystique and attraction about vampires. The seduction, the horror, the "not fitting in," the physical look, the violence, the tenderness, the romance and many more traits well covered in the many books and films on the beings. In "An Endless Hunger," Narcisse Navarre allows us to see the agony and torment that only such an eternal creature can experience. She takes us into the very psyche of the vampire and we understand that even with all of his supernatural power, his very own existence is often out of his control. We feel his hopelessness and despair as he desperately tries to hold on to some sort of humanity.
Not your usual vampire tale but one that will cause you to better understand these creatures of the night. An excellent read for the vampire fan. A must read for the vampire aficionado.
