During the peacekeeping operations in the Kosovo region of the Balkans, a group of vampires are discovered by the American forces. The report of the discovery attracts the interest of the commander of the elite and highly secretive organization; the United States Special Operations Command, who sends in his own personnel to investigate. When the General learns that the creatures actually exist, his team, led by Navy Commander John Reese, devises a method of capture and brings the vampires back to the United States. Once the creature's abilities have been proven and can be controlled, the General sets his own personal and secret plan of revenge in motion against the large drug cartels of South America by sending in his special ops team to kill, codename: Team of Darkness.
What made the experience of listening to Operation Immortal Servitude the most enjoyable?
I was constantly amazed that I was enjoying not only a vampire story, but a military vampire story.
What other book might you compare Operation Immortal Servitude to and why?
I can't think of any book that compares to this one. Immortal Servitude was unique.
What about Andrew B. Wehrlen’s performance did you like?
The reader was engaged and easy to listen to.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
Though there was no one stand out point in the book, the entire concept drew me in deeper and deeper. I began reading the book because a friend pointed it out to me, but I continued because it was so startling. Not "fun" or "entertaining" as such, but it seemed to draw me along.
Any additional comments?
I am a 40 year old female who typically likes romances; for ME to enjoy this book says volumes about its merit.

I was keen on the set up for this story. Military vampires! where could you go wrong? Well, with the narration. The narrator has the most odd way of phrasing and emphasis on the wrong words/part of the sentence. Also, upspeak, upspeak, upspeak!!! I couldn't get past two hours even though I really tried.
It may be my British ears thats making this difficult, but other American narrators sound fine. This person's style was just weird. I will read the Kindle book instead.
