The Red Serpent Trilogy
Book Summary (condensed)
“The evils of the World in which Anaxagoras shall come will be caused by the unworthy people of the world. Our race shall come unto the Earth and bravely wage war with them . . .”
In 2021, the Vampires attacked Earth and decimated the human population. After a fierce and bloody battle, war commander John Howe led the forced evacuation of the humans to the gigantic orbiting space station Regnum, and the human refugees have been there ever since.
Then one day, General Howe’s orphan nephew, Alexander, uncovers a terrible secret about his past — and that he may be the subject of prophesy.
“Two decades later, a new kind of evil, a Falsifier, shall come unto the Earth . . .”
The boy’s world is turned upside down when Gareng, the Vampiric General, reveals his own family ties to Alexander. As the two grow closer, Gareng begins to question the wisdom of his people waging Vampiric war on the humans. But Gareng’s own son will stop at nothing to seize control and eliminate the humans once and for all . . .
“There will be a second coming of Anaxagoras, when the sun is blocked by the moon . . .”
After learning his true origins, Alexander finds himself in an impossible situation: he must choose whether his allegiance lies with his mother’s people, or with his father’s — and condemn the other to certain doom.
“In the End of Days, the Falsifier shall challenge Anaxagoras for the fate of the world…”
But migra is thicker than water, and as Alexander embraces his role as Falsifier, he begins to hope that there could be another way.
Can Alexander forge a peace between the two warring factions — could he and Gareng ever convince the Vampires to agree — or will prophecy reach its bloody final chapter as Earth is plunged again into unrelenting war?
Rishabh Jain‘s Bio: (full)
While studying for the International Baccaulaureate Diploma (11th & 12th Grades) in the same school, Rishabh participated in and won 1st prize in two competitions (one for extempore speaking and the other for debate) in VIVUM Bangalore (India). He also built a Bio-Gas plant during a Community Service Project in a village of Rajasthan near Rathambore National Park. Rishabh was democratically elected by the student body for a period of two years (2007 & 2008) as a member of the Student Council (consisting of a total of twelve members representing the whole school) — a most responsible and keenly contested and coveted position.
Due to the peer recognition of his multidisciplinary talents in Creative Writing, English, Literature, and General Knowledge, and his unique ability to relate to people, Rishabh was also elected as the Editor of the Annual School Magazine Rewind. In June 2007, Rishabh participated in “GLOBAL YOUNG LEADERS CONFERENCE” (GYLC) in Washington & New York. This was a global conference, where approximately 200 international students from various countries around the globe were invited to attend. The conference lasted two weeks, with one in Washington and one in New York. He was awarded “Youth Leadership Award” in recognition of meritorious achievement in scholarship, leadership and citizenship.
Due to his exemplary performance in GYLC in 2007, he was invited to attend a week-long program, and as a special guest among a very few selected international students, attended the appointment and swearing-in ceremony of Barack Obama, the 44th President of the USA, in January 2009. After earning his International Baccaulaureate Diploma (11th & 12th Grades) in 2008, from among a large number of offers from various prestigious Universities, Rishabh entered the Mechanical Engineering program at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, where he presently resides and is currently pursuing his engineering degree. Amid his grueling schedule of Engineering studies, Rishabh has almost completed a 2nd book, which is a space science fiction adventure & love story.

Blessed Mother and Child
The year 2025
It was past young Alex’s bedtime and his mother came by his room to tuck him in. He said to his mother, “Mom, since it’s my birthday, will you tell me a story, please?”
“Yes, dear, I will,” she said sweetly to him, patting his back as he lay down on his bed, and she tucked him in. “This is a legend about a world different from ours. It was a world filled with people like us, and was bigger than the Monolith of Faith, and had a great big round shape.”
Alex’s eyes widened; he had never known of anything bigger than the Monolith of Faith. It was the largest monument in his world.
“It had large amounts of water, which separated places as big as our world. The people there were many, who dwelled in peace and harmony, until one day flying humans, the vampires, killed them and took over their world.”
“Mommy,” interrupted Alex, “What are vampires?”
“They’re these monstrous creatures, who have long teeth and—”
“As long as my teeth?”
“No, even longer.” Alex was perplexed. Everyone at his school made fun of him because of his long teeth, but now he was amazed that there were people who had longer teeth than his. Unfortunately, such people existed only in his mother’s myths and legends, not in real life. “Anyway, they also were able to use powers, which burned the trees, and kill humans by drinking their blood.”
“Wait a minute, what are trees?” he asked in confusion.
“They are like O2s*,” answered Minerva.
“Are they still alive?” asked Alex curiously.
“Yes, they are,” said his mother, with anger and sadness in her eyes.
“What happened to the other humans?”
“Go to bed, it is too late now,” she said in a hushed voice, and then kissed him on the forehead.
* In Alex’s world, the trees were given a special name due to their extraordinary properties.
