    Not what I expected but still a worth while read.

    I was hoping for a continuation of the main story line with the original protagonist, but unfortunately that was not the case. However, I still found the story interesting in how it expanded on the original universe of the first seven books in the series, but again I would like to see the story continue developing with Mike T. from as the the lead character. I was hoping to see more interaction between the human species and the Airilia along with the Swarm. As it sits the story line leaves open the entire plot line of the first seven books with no closure on whether the Airilia as a species are still around or if they had been wiped out by the Swarm since we know that the Swarm still exists. I would also like to see some expansion on the other human colonies . Obviously there are several human planets which are free of the Airilia, but as the story continues so far we know nothing about whether the Ark was the only one or if each human colony seeded by the Airilia had an Ark as well . Not only that but how have the Airilia advanced considering how much time has passed if they are still even around. From the story line we know that humans were meant to be a weapon against the Swarm, pretty much as just massive troops to the battle, but at the same time it seems as if the Airilia were afraid of their own weapon since they could have used the Ark to make a human army which was virtually indestructible. In the end the reader is still left hanging so I hope the author plans on writing more. The series as a whole would make a great movie series or TV series.

    more from this reviewer

    Interesting concept

    Millennia ago, aliens arrived on Earth and using the disguise of gods they ruled Atlantis until a civil war broke out and destroyed the island completely. Some of the Airlia retreated to Egypt and again wore the guise of gods and mated with six women who bore children that were half alien and half human. Unlike the immortal Airlians, the halflings needed blood to stay alive and thus was born the legend of vampires.<P> The Airlians treated the halflings cruelly, keeping them in metal containers, only allowing them to wake up when they wanted to drink their blood. Eventually the halflings rebelled and three of the six halflings survived although Vampyr's twin sister was murdered. He swore vengeance on the Airlian and humanity, but Nosferatu only cared about finding a way to make him and his love immortal so that they don't need blood. Vampyr has his own agenda and with his allies makes his move on the very eve of Nosferatu's triumph.<P> Vampires, the Holy Grail, Excalibur and many other objects and events from myth and legend are explained in AREA 51: NOSFERATU. A very highly evolved race of aliens used these avatars to rule mankind. The minatour on ancient Crete and then the monarchs such as King Minos, Ghenghis Khan, Vlad Tepes and Ivan the Terrible, rulers whose power was absolute and used for evil purposes, were all the doings of one vengeful fledging. The lives that the two fledglings lived make for fascinating reading and the audience will find themselves sympathizing with Nosferatu who only acts according to his nature.<P> Harriet Klausner

    Worst book in the series

    I have read the previous books in this series. I'm almost half way through the book and it's still a prequel set before the birth of Christ. None of the familiar (and beloved) characters have surfaced so far. I am very disappointed.

    Nosferatu and Legend in series Area 51

    The writer seems to have given the series a new kick start by going into a very different story line. This got very vampire-ish, blood drinking, etc. I didn't care for this. The last book in the series, *Legend*, put a tied up all the loose ends and was much better. All in all, I give the series 4 stars. I liked all the books as a story, but some do stand out more than a few of them.

    This is the worst book I have ever read

    Don't waste your time. I read the first chapter and thought "It has to get better", but to my dismay it did not. In fact it only got worse. At the end I resolved to finish this as a challenge to myself. Kind of like running a marathon or something. So now I can say I survived this mind numbing mush, but have resolved to never read anything this horrible again.
