Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

When a new drug starts turning users into vampires, its open season on the living in this action-packed thriller in the tradition of Jonathan Maberry and The Walking Dead

 

Fear grips London as dozens of people die after taking a sinister new drug called Skarlet. But that's only the beginning. Forty-eight hours later, the dead partiers wake up and begin butchering the living for their blood. Soon, London gives a name to its terror: Vampires.

 

Jake Lawton, bitter and betrayed after the Iraq War, finds himself fighting another battle - against the growing army of immortal hunters and their human cohorts. Lawton joins forces with the journalist who brought about his downfall and the dealer tricked into distributing the drug. Together they take on the spineless authorities, the ruthless cohorts, and the hungry dead. But the vampire plague unleashed in London is nothing to what lurks beneath the streets.  Waiting to be fed ...Waiting to be resurrected ...Waiting to reign again over a city of human slaves.

 

 

Review:

"Emson (the Vampire Babylon trilogy) feeds fresh blood to the vampire genre in this visceral hybrid of plague, panic, and the paranormal, which launches a series worth watching. Unlikely allies and ferocious monsters populate a world gone mad with blood thirst as ancient conspiracies are realized through contemporary greed and corruption. Nightclub bouncer and disgraced ex-soldier Jake Lawton becomes a chief suspect when a lethal designer drug kills a group of clubbers, including Jake's estranged girlfriend, Jenna. He teams up with Christine Murray, a vindictive journalist, to unearth an ancient conspiracy as the dead rise to feed on the living. Furious pacing doesn't preclude harsh poetic imagery as human greed blurs lines between friend and foe, victim and victimizer. Lawton's personal crises enrich the splattery carnage, and the plot is lent pathos by a misguided human population as dismal as the undead. The vampires of this energetic and philosophical fable are the rotting, deadly creatures of folklore, and a refreshing change for readers who weary of the sexy undead."
