Publisher's Summary

When Emmet Tynyanov is invited to join the Fraternity of the Morning Glory in Berlin in 1913, he eagerly accepts his new duties as a vampire hunter for the German Empire. But he has no idea the dangers and challenges he will have to face over his long career, or the endurance and cunning he will need to survive love, friendship, hate, history, two world wars, and the machinations of the undead. If he wants to play against vampires, he will have to have the patience for a long game.

Couldn’t finish

The idea of this story really interested me. However, it sounds like the narrator, who’s also the author, is recording from his basement.

Well researched and well done

Historical fiction is my favorite genre and, although I am not so much into horror, I thouoghly enjoyed this book. A couple of times I laughed out loud and several times at the end of a scene I would relax, not realizing I had been holding the tension of the events in my shoulders.

I had a vampire nightmare one night after consuming some chapters near the end, an unexpected bonus.

There were several times throughout the book where I appreciated the author’s artfully descriptive language. A very enjoyable read.

I noticed someone commented about not approving of the narration. I prefer books read by the author and feel it gives them another layer and intimacy to hear it exactly as the author intended and imagined. His narration added to the experience of the book. No complaints!

Story seems ok, but can't get past the performance

Should have had a professional voice actor read the book.
The author keeps pausing as if turning the page which becomes more and more unbearable.
