This is an unstoppable Horror Thriller! If you loved the investigation of early season X-files get ready to ramp it up to 11 with unspeakably violent vampires. They don't want to kiss you, they want to eat you.
This is the first book in a five book series by David Wellington. Wellington tears away all the "beautiful" from the vampire mythos and keeps the savagery. It's honest and refreshing. All the vampires are terrible blood junkies and weren't much better in life.
I love this book the most of the five because Caxton, the lead, is so raw and new here. The relationship between her and the US Marshal define the book. He is just as unlikeable as a vampire.
One more thought... The narrorator for this audiobook is ACES!!! She has excitement in her voice and great nuance between the characters. Give it your best ear!
