    Interesting New Twist to Vampires

    This book starts with a special force of military men with enhanced abilities, from turning into a black cloud to super strength. You learn that a mummy is found in the desert and that the military has learned that it has an extra chromosome compared to humans. So, they genetically splice this to the special force team giving them new abilities.

    Scott Boulder is the leader of this team. He is the one that opted not to have the splicing just in case. But his brother, Eric, is on the team and got altered. You start with the typical sibling conflict between the two. Then you learn that a voodoo priestess, Rebecca, has Eric under her powers. She is trying to get Eric to free the mommy so she can use him to cure her brother, whom is suffering with cancer.

    Eric uses a potion that Rebecca gave him and brings the mummy back to life, which starts taking out everyone at the base. Before too many people can be killed, the mummy is drawn to Rebecca's call. Now that the base is in total disorder, they call in Leah, the little girl that first discovered the mummy and lost her father and brother in the process.

    Because of her lose, Leah has been studying white and black magic trying to understand and possible heal herself from the lose. Of course, there is an attraction between Scott and Leah as the run around trying to figure out what the mummy is, a vampire, what he is after, and how to stop him.

    This is definitely a new twist on the classic vampire theme that is everywhere anymore. This on was created with a combination of alchemy and the blood of Dracula. It is a pretty bloody book since Andre, the vampire, seems to have to cut the throats instead of just biting them. I will say that at first I was not that all impressed with Leah. She seemed to be another damaged heroine going to save the day. But she got better as a book progressed. Scott on the other hand was damaged goods that did nothing for the story. He was the stereotypical military guy that was muscle and no brains.

    I am going to read the second book to this series and then decide if this one is a keeper. It could be that this one was the first book and getting a feeling of what it is about. But usually the second one really proves itself. I hope it gets better because there is a lot of potential.

    The Last Vampire

    It was good but I almost felt I needed more background of the characters or something.

    a dark somewhat gory supernatural thriller

    They found the five century old mummy buried deep in a Texas cave and they learned that the mummy¿s ancient flesh somehow bestowed super powers on humans. When the former was discovered, the Feds did not care when the latter occurred the military took over and turned the mummy into a top secret weapon.---------- However the egotistical generals and their even more pompous know it all civilian leaders ignore the science as the facts get in the way. They do not comprehend that the mummy is dormant, but alive held in stasis by an insane priest¿s incantations. They soon learn it¿s alive when a voodoo priestess purposely and Leah Maguire accidentally awakened it.-------------- In New Mexico Special Ops Captain super soldier (from the mummy¿s touch) Scott Boulder and Team Ultra are assigned to stop the amoral last vampire as now everyone knows the mummy is a blood sucking shark. Leah joins his team.--------------- THE LAST VAMPIRE is a dark somewhat gory supernatural thriller. The vampire is humanized by his life over five hundred years ago although in the present he is an amoral feeding machine who hungers for blood and is not per say an evil creature thus he is even more dangerous to humanity. The key to the tale is the romantic subplot between Scott and Leah provides a flicker of hope in a gloomy situation, but the authors cleverly keep that low keyed and muted as the war against THE LAST VAMPIRE takes precedence.--------- Harriet Klausner
