Publisher's Summary

After helplessly witnessing the execution of his family, John is approached by a strange man that promises the power of revenge, for a price; his life for the ability to walk the mortal plane for eternity. Fast forward several hundred years where John finds himself with an unlikely ally, Father Thomes Philseep. Together, they have the holy mission of doing God’s will by protecting this plane from the nefarious evil that seeks the end of times. After centuries of feeding on mortal blood, if John’s blackened soul can get a little bleaching at the same time, well, all the better. Too bad the warlock, Nathanial Locke, who is a lackey of Satan himself, has other plans in mind for John. Despite his platinum tongue and razer whit, John might need some help from a supernatural buddy who has a hankering for meat and sheds in the winter. Follow John the vampire as he travels through the centuries learning his powers with his teacher, Ulric, and fighting to control his supernatural predatory side to use his powers for good.

Gory Damn Fun Romp Through Time

A blood-filled adventure through both history and the inner workings of a vampire who, after a long time, is still figuring things out. A well written story with a phenomenal narrator to bring it to life. Would recommend to all unless you are opposed to violence, jokes and and all-round good time, you know, the people no one likes.

Best not so good guy Hero book

I love this book. I won't lie, some parts are so descriptive and horrific, I found myself cringing. Other parts had me laughing out loud regardless of my surroundings. I have now listened to it twice and am reading #3 while not so patiently waiting for the Audible edition. I can promise, I'll be reading them all.

Friendly neighborhood vampiric wiseass.

So I enjoyed this very much! I have discovered many books because I greatly enjoy Luke Daniels' narrations and this is my first Hunter Blain book. I thought this was a lot of fun. John (the main character) is.... the best way to say this is if Dresden had a vampiric offspring with Deadpool. Without spoilers... he is a friendly wiseass. He is far from perfect, but he means well. He has flaws... might make a mistake but he is... or well was only human. I'm a HUGE fan of the Dresden series by Jim Butcher so I feel like this has a similar feel. You get a great sense of who he is.... who his allies are... and a part of the world. It's really entertaining and I can't wait to hear more!!!! Thank you to you both!

Amazingly entertaining

A solid and entertaining adventure starring a young man transformed by a vampire after a group of corrupt officials murder his family to steal their land. Our antihero begins the adventure by eating a bunch of low-lifes and shows just what a likable Sons of Anarchy-with-fangs character he is. I really was entertained with the humor, the action, and the twists throughout. This is a great adventure and everyone should pick this up. I recommend the audiobook version over the Kindle version as the narration is one of the best parts.

Vampire Deadpool

This was a fun story that grabbed my attention right away. There were some very laugh out loud moments as well as some "get ya in the feels". Going to look for hook 2 now

Fun Listen

I really like the series so far. The main character’s wit and and humor are a perfect match for Luke Daniel’s narration. Purchasing the next (audio) book in the series right now. Great job to the author and the narrator!

Best urban fantasy I've ever read!

Luke Daniels did an incredible job narrating! Timing, inflection, characterization, accents, impersonations he did everything.

Of course the story was really really good too. We got all of the background, and where we are now. The humor, sarcasm, action and gore were great. You can't help but love the animal loving carnivores!

This is a must read. No sparkles here!
