I give this rating because of the fresh and creative take on the vampire universe. The book was well written as well. The main character was well developed. The gang language was perfect, as was the environment description.
My only problem was that the story itself was kind of boring. I skimmed over several pages waiting for something significant to happen.
The main character is really a piece of crap with no redeeming qualities. I honestly kept hoping that he would be killed.

I really enjoyed this one. Its worth checking out, especially if you are tired of the brooding, romantic vampire stuff.

I don’t even know where to being with how creative and original this book is! Even to say what CREATURE this book is about is hard to say. Some would say it’s about vampires, because they are creatures that need human blood to survive, but it’s so much more than that. In fact, I don’t think the word ‘vampire’ is ever used. They are all people who have a “virus”. They need human blood, have super-human strength, and although they can somewhat tolerate the sun, it’s not a positive experience. But when they go too long without blood….look out. To me, they’re almost a vampire/zombie mix, depending on their mood.
Ernie is a fantastic main character, who comes across this world completely by accident, as a drunk living in an alley. When he’s suddenly introduced to this world, and goes from the brink of death by alcohol to looking and feeling 25 again, it seems like a no-brainer to continue to receive this treatment in exchange for basically being a delivery man to other infected, delivering blood from their Farm…oh, and “recruiting” for the farm too. The only downside being that he’d agree to never see his daughter again, but he felt she was better off moving on anyway.
Of course, Ernie finds out there is thousands of years of history, and much more to the story of the infected, the farms, and just who to trust. I had an impossible time putting this book down, because it was so original, I had no idea what was going to come next. I really, really enjoyed it, and am definitely hoping there is a part 2!

This book was a fun read. Quick paced and interesting twist on the played out Vampire monster genere. I had a hard time putting it down and have given it to several of my friends who said the same.
