    "Must Have More!"

    I absolutely love this series! I flew threw every book in this series and hated running dry. Book 9 "March in Country" comes out Dec 7th 2010 and I have marked my calender!

    What if the New World Order were really an ancient Vampiric race of inter-dimensional beings that once again tried to shackle mankind in bondage forever? Well, they should have picked a more timid species to try to dominate and feed off of.

    The Author is brilliant and must be a serious history and geography aficionado. I am hopelessly addicted and long for the next book in the series.

    Thanks Mr. Knight for the excellent story!

    I am addicted to audio books, mostly fantasy. I have alwayz loved to read but could never find the time. This way I keep my mind occupied with wonderful stories and don't get caught up in life's stresses. I'm so glad I found this site.

    Story
    "As Advertised"

    This book stands at the junction of several genres – sci-fi, paranormal, western, and a hint of military.

    I’m always up for a paranormal or sci-fi fix, and some military flavoring blends just fine with those, so I gave this a shot. It’s an okay book, probably a 3.5 star read, but it never pulled me in strongly enough to want to continue with the series. It may have lost me at the western junction.

    Ah, the long, lonely road of the western. You know, the one where the traveler does what good he can during his brief stop in town, but then everybody goes their separate ways in the grim, pitiless world? There are a lot of brief stops. A lot of stories about new characters in new towns. A lot of grim. And then it’s time to move on and we start all over.

    Plenty of plot and action are going on at the same time, both of which are big pluses, but somehow I came away feeling a bit like I’d just read an anthology of short stories about various people the main character had met. Then I remembered I'm not into short stories, so no wonder that kept me from feeling connected to the storyline. Also, did I mention the level of grimness was a little heavy handed? But again, that might go with the whole western thing so take that with a grain of salt.

    Over all, I’d say this book is exactly as advertised, so if it sounds like your thing, then go for it. Just be ready for the “long, lonely road” aspect of it all, and even though that’s not my thing I still think this was a medium read. The sample is a good representation of the narrator’s work. Some people might find him a little slow, but he may have made me like the book more than I would have on paper, so hey, kudos there.

    "Not something I can get into."

    This series began with promise but the story never developed into something that I could spend a lot of time with. The narration was great but story very weak. Maybe it would get better with 2nd novel but I'm not game. Sorry.

    "Fantastic Series! Lots of fun to read"

    This is a new series for me but I thoroughly enjoyed it. It was a bit difficult to understand the various groups at first but as the book goes on it is all explained and now I am hooked and want to see what happens to David and Molly.

    If you like vampires, aliens, and a great hero you won't be disappointed.

    Story
    "Super good read. Original."

    This is a really good book and (so far) a terrific series (I'm only on Book 4). The characters are believable, interesting and I love the fact that Valentine is also polite, despite being a very tough soldier. It's a nice juxtaposition, since tough guys often become rude guys.

    I guess my only "complaint" (and it's a very mild one) is that there really is not a lot of Vampire in this Vampire book.............. So far, we are hearing more about the humans that are in sympathy with the Vampires versus the vampires themselves.

    Still.............I'm really enjoying the series so far....... well worth the time and money.

    Story
    "Join the resistance!"

    After a devastating invasion and the decimation of the population by alien-introduced deseases, most of Earth's population lives under the rule of the Kurians, who consider them cattle to be kept, managed and fed upon. Many humans under this system cooperate with their masters, seeking safety for themselves by betraying others. Most just try to keep their heads down and hope the 'reapers' don't come for them.

    But a few are fighting back.

    "No plot"

    This book sounded great on the surface: A post-apocalyptic civilization battling the forces of evil. Sadly, it greatly disappointed.

    The book is pretty much devoid of any plot; it simply follows an emotionless character around on his mostly random, boring journey. The author must certainly be from the Midwest farming communities, because he spends so much time talking about livestock and horses. The dialog feels forced and not how real people would speak.

    I found the narration irritating, mostly because the narrator is not suited for this genre. He sounds too nice and "goodie", and takes away any creepiness or suspense this book might otherwise have.

    If you are looking for a modern vampire/horror type of series to get into, I highly suggest the Joe Pitt Casebooks over this series.
