In 1864 in New Orleans a deadly serial killer shakes up the locals as well as the occupying army. Union officer Lieutenant Aldridge asks for former Confederate soldier Dr. Cody Fox who is sent to investigate as he has previous experience with these types of killings back in Alexandria in 1859 with a decapitating vicious serial killer. His assignment is to solve who is behind the mass murders and prevent more from happening.

Alex Green heads west to be with her father, but she arrives in Victory, Texas to learn he is dead although she is unaware how he died as no one will whisper a word of it as if they feared his fate if they say anything. Meanwhile deadly outlaw Milo Roundtree arrives in town as does Cody tracking the culprit who most believe is the vicious criminal. When Milo places a knife at Alex's throat, Cody kills him saving her life. However, nothing is resolved as the mass graves are empty and rumors abound to stay in-doors once the sun goes down.

This is a refreshing vampire historical romantic fantasy. The cast is solid especially the lead couple, the townsfolk, and the key second in command of the bloodsuckers who cleverly is hidden in plain sight. The prime weapon against the undead seems much more effective and realistic than the usual stake as Heather Graham provides a fun fast-paced story line as vampires and hunters collide in Civil War Texas.

something about this novel didn't grab me. It's not the worst thing I've ever read but Heather Graham is so much better than this. And I even though I understand why she gave it the title that she did, it gives the impression that the book is about werewolves. It's actually about vampires.

As usual with all of Barnes and Noble eBooks, there are numerous typos and and plenty of bad grammar and misused words. The kind of stuff I'd expect from me but not something I expect from any book.

I have to say that without fail, ALL of the B&N eBooks have mistakes in there. It's SO annoying! Especially since it costs so much money and you don't have anything but a file to see for it. Why are eBooks almost as expensive (within a dollar or three) of purchasing an actual book.

Why are we paying so much for electronic media that doesn't require paper, binding, or distribution? Surely those things cost more than a dollar.

So while I enjoy the ease of purchasing eBooks, the cost and mistakes are getting out of control. If you're going to charge so much for a file, for God's sake, put an editor or two on the darn proof reading part before it's published. Nothing worse than feeling like no one cares whether or not they put out a good product and assume the the buyers are so mindless that they won't notice all the mistakes.

I wish I didn't have to address technical difficulties as part of this review but all the mistakes impacts the story in a negative way. And it's not all the same publisher either so I can't blame it on that.

Back to the book. It was just ok. Not one of her best but not the worst book I've ever read either. It just never grabbed me and I was happy when it was over.

The next one will be better, I hope.
