Publisher's Summary

Possessed of an unnatural and legendary hunger, the Reapers have come to Earth to establish a New Order built on the harvesting of enslaved human souls. They rule the planet. They thrive on the scent of fear. And if it is night, as sure as darkness, they will come. It's the 48th year of the Kurian Order. The alien, vampiric Kur and their avatars, the Reapers, control most of Earth - their new feeding ground. Humanity is scattered and survives only at their new masters' whims.But the Resistance is attempting to reclaim Earth. David Valentine, member of the elite Cat spy force, is in enemy uniform aboard the aging gunboat Thunderbolt. Whispers have reached him of the discovery of a long-lost weapon in the Caribbean - the first glimmer of hope for humanity to finally defeat the Reapers. Control of the ship lies in the hands of a tyrannical captain, and nothing short of full-scale mutiny can win it back. With only a few loyal sailors at his side, Valentine embarks on a terrifying journey through the deadly waters of the Gulf, searching for the weapon that will guarantee that this year - the 48th year of the Kuran Order's domination of Earth - will be the Kurians' last...Bonus Audio: Includes an exclusive introduction by author E.E. Knight.

The Vampire Earth series goes from strength to strength with themes drawn from the US War of Independence, the Bible, a thousand Western novels this is on one level good old fashioned escapism with a contemporary twist but EE Knight's vision of strong characters male and female, black, white and brown is a kind of Obama era heroic fantasy and none the worse for it.

Great stuff
