Publisher Description

Mortimer Moorecook, retired Wall Street raider, avid collector, is losing his fight against cancer. With weeks to live, a package arrives at the door of his hillside mansion—an artifact he paid millions for…a hominoid skull with elongated teeth, discovered in a farmer’s field in the Romanian countryside. With Shanna, his beautiful research assistant looking on, he sinks the skull’s razor sharp fangs into his neck, and immediately goes into convulsions.

A rural hospital. A slow night in the ER. Until Moorecook arrives strapped to a gurney, where he promptly codes and dies.

Four well-known horror authors pool their penchants for scares and thrills, and tackle one of the greatest of all legends, with each writer creating a unique character and following them through a vampire outbreak in a secluded hospital.

The goal was simple: write the most intense novel they possibly could. Which they did. A Word of Warning: Within this story, you will find no black capes, no satin-lined coffins, no brooding heartthrobs who want to talk about your feelings. Forget sunlight and stakes. Throw out your garlic and your crosses. This is the Anti-Twilight.

    " Vampire stories are out there some just redundant and sloppy in trying to tell an old story in a new way. However bring together several formidable writers of horror and you get a very different and compelling twist on the vampire genre. This tale will keep you wanting more and torn with unexpected events as some of the more memorable caricatures come away as you would hope "

    " Got halfway through and couldn't continue. I like each of these authors individually, but this collaboration didn't work for me. It was one long disjointed series of scenes, running from monsters, killing monsters, being killed BY monsters, lots of gore... but that doesn't equal "scary" to me. I ended up pretty much hoping all the characters would just get killed and get on with it. I see it's gotten tons of good reviews, but I didn't get it, and I have too many other things to read that I'm sure I'll like better. "

    " Interesting. It is a fast-paced fiction. You are like watching a movie instead of reading a book. This one won't disappoint you if you enjoy horror novels with zombie/vampire elements. "

    " I loved this, what an easy read...and SUPER gorey. If you are sick of the twilight version of vampires and want to get back to what it's all about: BLOOD AND GUTS. Then this book is for you. "

    " After the mass infestation of romantic-hero-emo vampires, this was such a relief. And SO much fun besides. I especially loved the viewpoint of the little girl who got turned (("why hadn't mommy told her adults were full of red candy?")) Fantastic, gory, creepy read. "
