The Barnes & Noble Review
E. E. Knight's Tale of the Thunderbolt, the third book of his Vampire Earth saga (Way of the Wolf and Choice of the Cat), continues one of the coolest post-apocalyptic series to come along in years. An amalgam of military science fiction, Lovecraftian horror, and dark fantasy, the saga chronicles the adventures of special-ops soldier David Valentine as he battles the alien Kurian overlords and their Reaper minions that have taken over Earth and begun harvesting human lifeblood.

Valentine's latest mission is his most dangerous -- and crucial -- assignment yet. Posing as a coastal marine, Valentine must hijack a gunboat headed to Jamaica, redirect it to Haiti, and meet up with another operative who allegedly knows the whereabouts of a weapon that could potentially defeat the nightmarish Reapers and their Kurian puppet masters. Valentine uncovers vital information about the alien enemies on his journey to the Caribbean; but perhaps his most important discovery comes in the form of a beautiful resistant fighter named Malia….

Fans of popular series that mix military science with alien contact -- like Harry Turtledove's Worldwar novels and John Ringo's Legacy of the Aldenata saga -- should make it a point to check out Knight's addictively entertaining Vampire Earth. With this installment, Knight is just beginning to delve into all of the amazing and fantastical surprises that his alien-altered Earth has to offer. Paul Goat Allen
