    A New Twist on Vampire Books

    Authors Richard Finney and Franklin Guerro did an amazing job writing Drawing Blood book 1 of the Relict. Drawing Blood is only the beginning in what one can tell will be a gripping tale of human survival. Richard Finney and Franklin Guerro did an excellent job setting the tone for a new and exciting vampire series that readers will come to enjoy. Drawing Blood is not the typical vampire book that has become so popular over the years, but comes with a twist on vampire motivations and what a future with them means. Drawing Blood is not about the vampires as much as it's about the humans that remain. Richard Finney and Franklin Guerro did an excellent job in creating realistic characters, giving them a wide range of personalities making them both likable and hated, even so with vampires and their ambitions and changes. Vampires create Blood Donation Centers to hold humans prisoners and collect their blood for consumption. Prisoners in the Blood Donation Centers are treated to a somewhat decent life, but are known as nothing more then "Juice Boxes". I liked the idea of placing some humans above others in deranged cooperation and reading about the interesting twists and layers this brings to the story. Drawing Blood is not overly gory for shock value, but there is a grim realism that encases the book. Drawing Blood ends on a cliffhanger, but it only makes you eager for book 2 in the Relict. Richard Finney and Franklin Guerro wrote Drawing Blood book 1 of the Relict with such amazing force that I cannot wait to read the continuation when it comes.

    Not your typical vampire tale - Dystopian/Post-Apocalyptic.

    Finally a vampire tale that doesn't suck!
    (Instead, they drain it from their P.O.W "juice boxes" like some sort of demented Red Cross.)
    The vampires in this tale don't glitter either, unless broken glass has been sprayed on them by a barrage of bullets. They don't play baseball and they don't play with werewolves. They play cattle drive, starring humans in the role of cattle.

    Have I caught your attention yet?

    Nope, this is not your romantic, sparkly, 'kissy-face' version of vampires. This is a rock and roll, in-your-face, full-blown assault on your imagination, and what a joyride it is!
    The world has been taken over by a well-organized society of vampires. These vamps are a force to be reckoned with. Enter Matt Haynes, former mercenary. Also, a force to be reckoned with...
    Featuring a diverse yet captivating cast of characters, the plot and action rolls along easily. Not bogged down with unnecessary details, your mind and imagination is free to play.
    This book is only the beginning of what promises to be an action-packed, mind blowing hit series, in the excellent tradition of Richard Finney. This author is a master at whatever he chooses to write. I've never read a book by Richard Finney that didn't leave me wanting more. They are THAT good!

    Thank you Richard for the opportunity to read and review your latest work of art. It is an honor and a privilege.
