I enjoyed this tale of a post WWIII Earth dominated by vampire masters and their underling thralls; however, I was a little disappointed at the lack of good editing and typos throughout. The underlying plot & character building is great if you can get over the "rough draft" nature of this book.

Wow, this book was an absolute mess! It would appear the author didn't even bother using spellcheck before publishing this disaster. It was almost painful to read given the extent of the grammatical errors alone! Although there were chapters, he didn't bother separating the different scenes within, so it was extremely confusing as the action and dialogue jumped from one location to another. I found it very difficult to keep track of all the characters, especially when half of them were named Jack or John, and because sometimes he'd actually mix the names up (ie calling Sandra "Sarah"). The underlying story really isn't that bad, but it was so poorly executed I cannot bear to finish this trilogy. Someone needs to get this guy an editor!!

    Okay

    It's not a barn burner, but these are a decent read. The wtiting is only okay, but the premise is very cool. Made me wish a better writer had come up with the idea.

    Good plot but more detail on ancient vampires would be awesome.

    Has Potential

    This book was kind of hard to get into based on the typos and all around bad editing. The most annoying thing is that it switches between characters very frequently but there is no break in the text so suddenly you are reading another scene and it is very confusing. Also it was unexpectedly more a war novel then anything with lots of descriptions of battle. But, I actually started to like the story a bit. Really this author just needs some help from an editor who can cut out all the overly excessive descriptions and extra characters and I think this would be a great story.

    Reader

    I enjoyed this set of vampire storys. Books 1 and 2 should be read to understand story line. Sad to say lots of errors. Makes parts of book hard to follow. Where are the proof readers?

    Not all bad

    I really liked this story. Did not take me long to get into it. Does have a lot of mistakes with spelling and grammer, but didn't ruin the book.

    A World Turned Asunder

    Well this ebook has a lot of typos and I really hope he gets a better editor because his ideas and writting is really pretty good. I had trouble getting through the book because there was no notice of when he changed to another character. All characters narrarated for themselves and there is a lot of characters because a lot of them die in the war with the vampires. In all I like the story so I will be finishing off the series.
