NOW with the "Seal of EBook Excellence!" - Proofed, Properly Formatted, and a Great Price: Just $3.99!

Meet Lawson. A cynical, wise-cracking vampire charged with protecting the Balance between vampires and humans, he is part cop, part spy, and part commando -- James Bond with fangs. Lawson mixes shrewd cunning with unmatched lethality to get his job done. He tries his best to dismantle conspiracies, dispatch bad guys, and live long enough to get home.

In The Invoker, a case of mistaken identity lands Lawson in the role of protector for a young boy with the power to conjure the spirits of dead vampires. But a power-hungry member of the vampire governing body, the Council, wants that power for herself and she'll do anything to get it - even if it means hiring an ex-Fixer named Petrov to kidnap the boy. From the blood-slicked streets of Boston to the skyscraping Himalayas, Lawson will need to call in every favor and on every friend if he hopes to ever see Jack alive again.

One of the great things about reading is finding a hidden treasure among all the many mundane titles lining the bookshelves out there. I felt like I had found the x marking the spot when I picked up The Invoker by Jon F. Merz. Being a fan of both horror and action/intrigue novels I was pleasently surprised to find a novel that straddled both genres so effortlessly. If you are a fan of vampire novels you won't be dissapointed...in fact you may find yourself rejoicing to find a writer who is not afraid to break out of the traditional and often times repetitive formula so often used. In Lawson, Mr. Merz has created both an action hero and a vampire you can respect. The Invoker has action, intrigue, a touch of darkness and a story that makes you wonder why Hollywood hasn't come knocking on Mr. Merz's door yet. Being new to this series I can only hope to watch it continue and flourish...I am already anxiously awaiting future chapters! If you are looking for a new hero or just a really great read, do yourself a favor and spend some time getting to know Lawson and his creator Jon Merz! You'll be glad you did!

The Father of all Vampires is Dracula and over the years we've been told many stories of Dracula and his "children," but then the interest level of vampires waned. Until Anne Rice introduced us to Lestat de Lioncourt in her work: Interview with the Vampire. Everyone wanted to be a Vampire again, who could resist especially after we saw Tom Cruise, Brad Pit, Kristen Dunst, Antonio Banderas, and Thandie Newton in the movie. Now we have Lawson, who is a Vampire, but more, he is the fiber of the Vampire Nation. Lawson is the Vampire Nation's Marshall Matt Dillon, for those of you who are too young to know who that is let me explain. Marshall Matt Dillon, played by James Arness, was the lead in the TV series Gunsmoke. He was a US Marshall that was responsible, honest, and never backed down no mater the odds. To protect and serve were not just words to Marshall Dillon, but the driving forces of his life. Another US Marshall you maybe more familiar with is Clint Eastwood's Character Jedediah 'Jed' Cooper in Hang 'em High. Here was another man who was willing to give everything of himself for the community. Both of these characters represent the good, the strong, and the will we all hope our lawmen would have, but now in from the cold so to speak, Jon Merz opens the door for us to view a new lawman. The Vampire Nation relies on a select few to keep the peace, to protect the community, to give everything and expect nothing in return. Jon has made Vampires real, given them qualities they never had before, and provided us with a new hero. Lawson is the law, the moral heart, and the soul of a group, Vampires, that we have long been told did not have souls or hearts or even laws. Jon has wrapped all those qualities that we as humans cherish so much into Lawson, added a healthy dose of death and destruction to make the Vampire Lawson real. As you can see the story has captured my attention and will capture yours, so make the right choice and read about Lawson. The only complaint I have about the books, The Fixer and The Invoker, is they should be longer, but then with a series like this you get the rare opportunity to have guaranteed quality reading for years to come. I figure that¿s a fare trade.

Jon Merz has lived up to the promise he showed in his very entertaining debut novel:the Fixer. Our hero, Lawson aka the fixer returns in another dark adventure pitting himself once again against some power-hungry vampires!Lawson is duped into killing a innocent vampire accused of drug dealing and finds himself protecting the dead man's son.A boy who is invoker, a being who can control spirits of the dead! the boy, Jack is targeted by evil vampire council member Arvella and her renegade fixer Petrov to open a link to the spirit world in their bid for world domination!He is aided by elder vampire Wirek. Lawson's adventure will take him from Boston to cold reaches of himalayas mountains! this novel is action-packed ride with brutal scenes of hand to hand combat, narrow escapes and pursuits. Merz is fashioning his heroic vampire as nosferatu version of james Bond and this novel's conclusion is a almost a witty nod to the ending to Goldfinger as Lawson life or death against his enemy, Petrov on plane! Bring on Lawson's next adventure!

The sequel to Merz's first novel, The Fixer, this is a really great read. Merz's hard hitting noir action style gets better with each book and while this is a vampire series, its unlike any vampire series I've ever read. Incredible fight scenes, and non-stop action and adventure. This is a series to watch. Buy both The Fixer and The Invoker and you will not be disappointed!
