Reviews

Knight's fifth novel in his Vampire Earth series, the first in hardcover, has lost none of the compelling pulp-adventure flavor of its mass market predecessors (Valentine's Rising, etc.). Postapocalyptic Earth has been occupied for 50 years by alien Kurian invaders, who use their blood-drinking Reaper avatars to keep what's left of humanity in line. The Texas Republic and Ozark Free Territories have recently made some headway against the Kurians, and heroic resistance leader David Valentine continues his fight to save Earth by kicking Kurian tentacles whenever possible. Complications arise when Valentine tries to find out what happened to a wounded comrade's ex-wife, then is arrested on trumped up torture and murder charges connected with his handling of some prisoners. The sympathetic hero, fast-paced action and an intricately detailed milieu set in various well-imagined regions of 21st-century North America make for an entertaining read. (June) Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.

The year is 2072 and the vampiric alien race known as the Kurians, who draw their sustenance from their human "herds," control the Earth. In the former United States, the Texas Republic and Ozark Free Territory have risen in rebellion, assisted by freedom fighters like David Valentine. Asked by fellow resistance member William Post to locate his wife, now missing in Kurian territory, Valentine takes his battle into the heart of the enemy. The latest addition to Knight's (Valentine's Rising) popular alternate earth series-also the first hardcover-maintains the high quality of its predecessors, combining fast-paced action/adventure with the ever popular vampiric threat. Suitable for libraries owning the series' other titles. Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.

"Gritty realism, Lovecraftian villains, and boffo action scenes." -- S.M. Stirling
"I have no doubt that Knight is going to be a household name in the genre."
