In his latest Vampire Earth novel, national bestselling author E.E. Knight delivers a thrilling adventure when David Valentine’s loyal Lieutenant Alessa Duvalier disobeys his orders—and finds herself uncovering a betrayal…
While out scouting in southern Indiana, Alessa Duvalier comes across a Kurian Conference being attended by every major military sect the Kurians have in the Midwest. Taking advantage of the strategic opportunity to cripple their enemy, Alessa and her warriors strike and achieve victory—only to discover an even greater threat to humanity.
Most of the world’s resistance leaders and the Lifeweavers are gathering for a peace conference in Helsinki, Finland, and according to the intelligence materials Alessa recovered during her raid, the Kurians have already inserted an agent among the delegates.
David Valentine is chosen to be head of security for the Army of Kentucky representatives—and Alessa ignores his order to stay behind. Now, thrust into a lethal intrigue that threatens the entire peace process, she learns that the Kurian agent may be the least of her concerns.
For the Lifeweavers themselves are about to reveal something that will devastate the Resistance...

This was my second time through this book- the first was an ebook version. I enjoyed the audio book every bit as much as the ebook. I highly recommend doing a second read- there are definitely things that I missed the first time around.
The Vampire Earth series is one of my favorites. This book did not disappoint. It is from Duvalier's perspective instead of Valentine's and packs a punch.
Christian Rummel gives an extraordinary performance (as usual).
Looking forward to the next book in the series.
HIs last three books have seemed incomplete and poorly edited. There are gaps in the storylines or references to events that have not yet happened (especially in Appalachian Overthrow) that seem to scream that nobody carefully checked the book. This is a shame because the stories are enjoyable.
Would not have cut any but demanded fleshing out! Frustrated by disjointed jumps and apparent non-sequitors, especially in Chapter 10. It was already frustrating to pay full price for a novella, and it wasn't even internally consistent. I actually went to look in the print edition because I was convinced there had been some strange abridgement, but the fault was in the book itself.
I wish the author and editors would show some actual concern for tying together a tight story. They've created an interesting universe and likable characters, but all that gets lost when the reader is constantly trying to figure out what he/she missed that led to the current events or dialogue.
I picked up the first in the series as a paperback years ago and have been following since. I really enjoyed the twist from the classic terminology of vampire. I look forward to the next book, hopefully more in depth look at the wolves,cats and bears.
