Great story that I really got into. It takes place during an outbreak that creates Human/Vampire hybrids. The story is shown through the eyes of one of the main characters as he transforms from en everyday computer geek to the leader of the resistance. Along the way he meets interesting groups and learns more about what he’s fighting. The story has plenty of action and twists and turns along the way. I can’t wait to start book 2 and for book 3 to come out!

I received this book through a Goodreads giveaway:

This book is a "vampire" tale with a scientific twist- blood-drinking is the result of parasites that can also repair and maintain the host body. It's a concept that I really enjoyed, though I was somewhat less keen on the mystical 1000 souls idea that dogs the "good guys". In general this is an enjoyable story of an every-man forced into challenging circumstances and rising to meet new heights he never expected to deal with.

One note as a raging

Nice premise, good flow, little wanting in secondary character development. Not sure I'll continue series b/c SPOILER ALERT Bert becomes a ripper and I like when I can follow a character across the series
