    Though the word vampire had been used to describe them, they were nothing of the kind. The Chosen could not be affected by garlic or icons from the one god. They did not need to sleep in coffins or fear the sunlight. Only the enemies of Ra had to fear the sun god’s rays of light. For he and his men, the sun strengthened them when injured or weak

    The warriors usually fed once a week, taking only what they needed. But they did not subsist on blood alone. Being very much alive, they needed food as well

    He absentmindedly ran his tongue across the sharp fangs inside his mouth. Just as the demons they fought, Ra’s Chosen needed to feed off humans. But instead of souls, they needed their blood to keep them strong. Unlike the undead, the Chosen didn’t kill the ones they drank from. The donors found the experience pleasurable, to the point of orgasm. It affected both parties that way, which had the warriors only seeking out women

    Before the conversation could go any further, Takan interrupted. “I think something is brewing, Mehen. I can feel it. We tracked Sek and Mot here from Egypt all those years ago, and we have yet to find their lair. And it’s been too quiet. They have to make a major move soon

    Their eyes that had been dark brown at birth had transmuted to a very pale brown, verging on the color of gold. The change had taken place after each man had been accepted as one of Ra’s chosen and received the god’s gift

    And each bore the mark of Ra across the back of their shoulders just as Mehen and Set did—a winged sun with the eye of Ra in its center

    . For the undead, bronze was their greatest enemy. It took only one cut from such a blade to end their unnatural existence. The sword was so much a part of him, Mehen sometimes felt naked without it strapped to his back.
    Placing the sword on the table, Mehen’s gaze touched on each of the five men who he’d led into countless battles over the ages. As their leader, he felt responsible for each and every one of them.
    The first to meet his gaze was Set, his second-in-command. Mehen had a much longer history with Set than he had with the rest of the warriors. He trusted Set with his life and couldn’t picture not having him fight by his side. They both knew each other’s strengths and weaknesses, and supported each other in times of need. Both he and Set had been the first of Ra’s Chosen

    . The walls had been painted to match the color of the stone used for the Temple of Amon Ra at Karnak in Egypt. On top of that, in bright jewel tones, hieroglyphs and pictures of many of Ra’s exploits had been painstakingly hand painted. It had all been done by Takan, one of his fellow warriors

    He had now entered the inner sanctum of Ra’s Chosen. The security system could not be triggered by the mind alone at any of the doors that led inside their headquarters. The stone, a gift from Ra himself, had been their one and only safeguard in the past. Only the blood of the six warriors of Ra’s Chosen could unlock the stone’s protection. The advent of modern technology had meant they could now employ even greater security measures

    Mehen triggered the gate mechanism with his mind and drove his bike through

    The pinprick wound healed the instant his saliva touched it

    Mehen left the parking lot and headed south to the Warehouse District where he and his brother warriors had taken up residence some thirty years before. The warehouse they had converted into their headquarters sat in an ideal area of the city

    n. He and his fellow warriors had to make sure that never happened
    Carina Rita Hansenhas quoted4 years ago
    Scanning the crowds, Mehen waited for his skin to prickle, to let him know one of his enemies lurked nearby. He had the duty to fight the demon-kind who only existed to collect the souls of the living for their demon god master, Apep. The mortals they preyed upon who became what had hunted them just added to Apep’s evil plan to escape the underworld. Like a disease it had the hunter as carrier, able to pass on the contagion to its victim. If left unchecked it theoretically could spread through an entire population

    to defeat their enemies. As Ra’s Chosen, the warriors fought the evil that threatened to take over, pushing it back, to stand between man and demons.
    Some say to this day Ra’s Chosen still fight to protect the unsuspecting mortals around them. In the shadows they stalk their prey each night, ever on guard, forgotten by those who they have been charged to watch over

    An Old Legend

    In Egypt of old the sun god Ra held sway, worshiped as the father creator. Each day he rode the skies in his solar barque bringing light to the land. And every night he traveled through the dark underworld until the dawning of a new day.
    During his nightly voyage, Ra faced his greatest adversary, a being of such evil and darkness, people shuddered—the demon god Apep, the eater of souls. Ra and his companions battled the demon, defeating him each night only to face him again when darkness fell once more.
    It is said that one night Apep gained the upper hand, which caused thunderstorms to rage and the earth to shake. Using the chaos he had created, Apep unleashed two evils into the world. Two demons called Sek and Mot were set loose to bring down mankind by collecting souls for their dark master, turning mortals into soulless shells commanded by Apep.
    To counteract Apep’s evil minions, the sun god chose six warriors. He gifted them each with immortality and the powers needed

    nly for her body, but also her blood.
    Blythe may have been saved by the mysterious man, but her reaction to the feel of his arms around her and the way his eyes wander to her neck don’t make her feel much safer. When she’s taken to his headquarters against her will, she finds herself a prisoner. But when he unleashes passion unlike any she’s ever known, she realizes she’ll do anything to stay imprisoned.
    But Blythe is not who she seems. And Mehen finds himself in the fight of his life to save the woman he loves from the evil that yearns to possess her
    Carina Rita Hansenhas quoted4 years ago
    As one of Ra’s Chosen warriors, Mehen must protect mortals from the undead who hunt them. Gifted by the sun god Ra, Mehen has never struggled with the task—until he saves a woman from three undead, and finds himself in need of saving. Something about the woman stirs him, and he’s consumed by his need not only for her body, but also her blood
