After reading some of the negative reviews I was hesitant to purchase this book; however, this hesitancy proved to be entirely unfounded.
As the author says in his introduction, he personally enjoys military fiction, vampire, and werewolf fiction, so that is what he wrote. This is military fiction set in a future where "vampires" and "werewolves" are at war. Within the boundaries and tropes of military fiction there is good character development, plot advancement, etc. I suspect that those that have been exceptionally critical of this book have more of a problem with the genre than E.E. Knight's work itself.
That being said, if you are looking for Gothic horror, this book will most definitely not meet that desire. If you are looking for a post-apocalyptic war story with a monster flavor this is perfect.
