Overview

Zombies have devoured mankind. And the few survivors would be better off dead because a clan of vampires, bloodthirsty and vicious, have captured the remnants of humanity for livestock. In an apartment building barricaded with wrecked cars, concrete rubble, and snarls of barbwire, the vampires breed lobotomized amputees. Ann, the secret blood slave of the maternity doctor, has evaded this fate, yet her sister Ellie has not. Though she longs to escape, Ann cannot abandon her sibling and unborn niece. But she may have to if she wants to survive. The living dead have found a weak spot in the barricade and are quickly invading the building. Shade, the vampire monarch, defends her kingdom, while Frost, Shade's general, plans to migrate to an island where they can breed and hunt humans. In their path stands a legion of corpses, just now evolving into something far more lethal, something with tentacles--and that's just the beginning.

I am new to science fiction and I loved this book. I was hooked after the first few pages and couldn't put it down. I thought it was going to be like all the other Vampire stories, but I was pleasantly surprised. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone. I hope to read more of D.L Snell's books in the future. Keep up the good work.

Living humanity¿s reign is through. First the Zombies devastated much of those still breathing. The few survivors were captured by Vampires, who saw their food supply dwindling towards extinction due to the violence of the dead. Now the berserker Zombies are literally at the door trying to break through barbwire and other barricades to get at the vampire clan and their lobotomized human cattle.---------------- Vampiress Queen Shade wants only to keep her kingdom in tact her top military officer General Frost feels the cost to maintain the status quo is more than just too high inevitably the enemy will win. He believes they must flee to an island where the natural habitat will keep the Zombies away while they breed humans. However, neither vampire defenders, invading Zombies, and the few humans like Ann who can think realize that the new generation of the reanimated living dead is something more horrific and dangerous to all three species.----------------- This is a terrific reworking of the zombie- vampire mythos that will grip readers from the moment the living dead attack the apartment building where the vampires are hiding and never slows down for a moment. The fast-paced story line is so filled with action that George Romero would give it five stars. However, it it¿s the two lead vampires, Ann, and a dangerous reanimator who all seem genuine in this post-apocalyptic world that turns the Snell mythos into one of the better supernatural thrillers of the year.----------- Harriet Klausner

I didn't care to much  for this book. A lot of it didn't make much sense. Seems things were written more for the shock value then practicality.

Weirdly written. sometimes its hard to tell whats being imagined by a character and whats actually happening to them. hard to follow in some instances due to the previous two statements. cool twist on the zombies tho having very untraditional traits all in all I read it once and its collecting dust on the shelf

D.L. Snell had delivered a great disapointment in this book. A fan of Premuted Press I wanted this book in print and considered myself lucky to find it in Nook format at all. The concept of the living vs. the zombies vs. vampires captured my imagination from the first time I'd read the premise. Sadly the execution is poorly done. The only character development takes place with a mentaly unhinged human slave who's storyline has little to do with the overall theme of the book. Shade, the major vampire character is a poorly done equivilant to Underworld's Selene. The zombies themselves are unintersting until the virus takes an interesting turn and mutates. I could have viewed this book as an enjoyable "B" zombie novel, despite it's weaknesses but the author had a habit of waxing poetic and flowery at nearly every single turn. I nearly put this book down several times. I don't know what was worse, the constant waxing poetic or the abrupt and meaningless ending. I recomend this book for only the most die hard Premuted Press fans.

I didn't hate the book but I thoght it could have been better. I like the idea of vampires versus zombies but this book didn't really grab me like I thought it would or should.
