US Marshal Jameson Arkeley, the country’s foremost authority on vampires, taught police investigator and vampire fighter Laura Caxton everything she knows about monsters. After a bloody war visited upon Gettysburg by an army of vampires, Arkeley gave up his own life to save others—except he didn’t exactly die.

Arkeley accepted the curse and is now a vampire himself. What’s worse, he’s the savviest vampire ever; he knows all the tricks better than anyone. Caxton is now faced with the task of destroying her former mentor. But Arkeley knows all her tactics too; after all, he taught them to her. Caxton realizes she must finish Arkeley before he succeeds in his quest to exterminate his own family. But even more important, she has to prevent him from becoming a beast exponentially more dangerous: a vampire zero.

    " Definitely gruesome but oh so good. Laura is still a vampire hunter but she's hunting Arkeley now because he is one. She has basically turned out just like he was before he turned. She's letting the job consume her and doing nothing with her personal life. Once she was a good State Trooper now she's become obsessed with hunting down Arkeley and destroying him no matter what the cost. "

    " This one never grabbed me. Maybe it's just not my genre. I gave up. "

    " I think I'm almost tired of Mr. Wellington's vampires. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Debby Allen | 12/10/2013

    " So even with very different vampires, the main character is unlikeable, just like Sookie. A hundred pages in and I just didn't care enough about Laura to go on. Why can't a vampire story have a nice, likeable female lead? "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tobyann Aparisi | 12/10/2013

    " This was a great third book to the series! I really love these stories. This was full of action from the start and didn't stop until the last page. I can't wait to read the next book! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Steven Paul | 7/5/2013

    " Great book just like the two before it. can not wait to get the last two in this series. David Wellington is a great writer, he knows how to convey things so that you feel like you can just step right into the book with the characters. Highly recommend this series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Richard | 6/5/2013

    " These are NOT your cuddly romantic vampires. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Emily Liz | 4/29/2013

    " This book is great. I am glad I bought the book, It's worth my money. "

    " And the apprentice becomes the master. Excellent installment, I can't wait for the next one to be published. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Topher | 6/23/2012

    " PA author, who sets horror series here. In this case (3rd in the series), mostly near where I went to college. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Brett Botbyl | 3/31/2012

    " Ah, the final chapter in a brilliant trilogy. The characters are well realized. The dialogue is sharp and no-frills. The heroine is a lesbian, Pennsylvania State Trooper with a knack for making undead things check out permanently. Iove this trilogy. READ READ READ!!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Steve | 8/30/2011

    " While gory as hell, Wellington's vampire series is a sharp contrast, and refreshing break, from a work fascinated by Twilight and True Blood ... yes, vampires are actually scary here, more like a mako sharks instead of sparkly skinned teenagers. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Leigh | 6/1/2011

    " Wow-this guy David Wellington can flat out write a good novel! The characters are totally believeable, the action is nonstop and the story is fascinating. This is the third of a four novel arc and I am going to be sorry to finish the fourth, 'cause that'll be the end. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Shawn | 4/20/2011

    " Oh Holy Crap! I can't say how much I enjoyed this series. I tore through these like popcorn. I'm a casual fan of vampire stories, but I need to create a whole new scale to measure this book's greatness! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dácil | 3/20/2011

    " Bastante sangriento y desagrable en algunas ocasiones. A parte de eso no aportada nada nuevo pero al menos entretiene y deja ganas de leer el siguiente "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Marta | 3/19/2011

    " I thought the story dragged on way too long. I didn't like the lead character and it was too predictable. I won't continue to read this series. And I probably won't return to reading anything from this author. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Wordnerd64 | 3/14/2011

    " A fun read. Kind of an abrupt ending, but I assume the next book in the series will pick up the story where this one left off. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Aliah | 1/27/2011

    " Non stop action. Complete awesomeness. And yeah, I just said awesomeness. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sroit | 1/10/2011

    " I devoured it in a few hours and went back for more (of the series). "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sierra | 1/5/2011

    " An awesome book. These vampires are a bit more animal like so theres really no reasoning with them. they are also super hard to destory, which makes them even cooler. besides the vampires, the story is really detailed and well played out and will definitely keep you wanting more. "
