Overview

Fifty-year-old Ernie Chase is just another liquor-soaked husk wandering the streets of New York City looking for his next drink; his body is broken and his mind is a slave to addiction. Things change when he is shot while witnessing a back alley drug deal. He imagines that his life is finally over, but instead he awakens to discover that he is handcuffed to a cot in an abandoned hospital and is somehow sober, healthy and 25 years younger.

Ernie is told that he has been infected with a dangerous virus which requires him to consume human blood to stay alive. He is given a simple choice by his captor; receive continuing treatment for his strange new condition in exchange for lifelong service, or face certain death.

His job is simple now:
Recruit for the Farm.
Distribute the Product to the Infected.

It all seems so uncomplicated until other Infected start to descend on the city, looking for their next fix.

    Excellent in many ways, but kind of boring

    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 don¿t even know where to being with how creative and original

    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!
