Overview

Within the vaults of the Smithsonian Institute lies the key to finding the Vampyrnomicon, the Book of the Undead, that contains the history and secrets of the vampires. According to legend, whoever possesses the book can establish a vampire nation on earth - or destroy the undead once and for all.

With an opportunity to end the war against the undead so close, Drake Matthews is determined to find the book. But the vampires also want The Vampyrnomicon. When Master Chiang Shih and her coven of the most powerful and dangerous vampires arrive in Washington to claim the book as their own, the hunters find themselves facing their most dangerous enemy yet.

With the stakes so high, so is the ferocity of the struggle.

Vampyrnomicon Vampire Hunters Book Two By Scott M. Baker The Vampyrnomicon is a book that can be used to either destroy vampires or mankind, thus begins the race between the vampire hunters and master vampire Chiang Shih and her coven. The vampire hunters seem to be in the lead as one of their own can access the diary pages within the Smithsonian Institute that will hold the key to where the final destination is, but the vampires have a few tricks of their own up their sleeve. A briefer synopsis: action, action, action, sexual encounter, action, action, action, epic ending. Oh yeah it is that intense from the beginning the novel jumps into the fighting and who doesn’t love it when the vampires are bad guys again? There is no redemption for these blood-sucking fiends, from the first page they are the monsters that used to haunt peoples nightmares not the modern day “will you save me” kind. I haven’t had the opportunity to read the first book in the trilogy, but this is ok, the author may have started right up where he left off with the first one but you barely notice all that matters is that you know vampires are bad and vampire hunters are good, from there you are golden. Although the vampires are the bad guys in this book the author encompasses their side of the story into the main plot making it hard to dislike them until they kill someone else who was completely innocent. This is definitely a fun book worth the read, but be warned it is an adult book with highly adult situations. I was sent a free copy of this book for an honest review.

The Smithsonian, The Book of the Undead, Power, Blood, Gore and More crazy powerful Vampires, Oh MY!!!!! In the first book the Vampire hunters do a lot of damage to the vampires. BUT, the Master Toni escaped and is still free to make more. Que the bad ass vampires with Master Chiang Shih and the situation gets nasty. Scott M Baker has an amazing writing style, building up his characters and plot line so believably that it is scary to imagine what actually does go bump in the night. There were times when in utter amazement I found myself wondering….”How does he think up this stuff!” Genius! I can't wait to read the third and last book of the series called Dominion. If you enjoy a true horror book without steamy sexy sparkly vampires then you need to read this series. I received a copy of Vampyrnomicon from the author via Innovative Online Book Tours for an honest review.

"Vampyrnomicon" is the second book in the Vampire Hunters Trilogy with new vampires rebuilding. Scott has done it again as he pens his plot and characters with more horror, gore and mystery. A totally enjoyable read, especially if your looking for the non-traditional vampire story. Highly recommended to all vampire lovers. *5 Stars* This review is based on a complimentary copy which was provided for an honest review.

The tale of Drake the vampire hunter continues. This story has a little more horror in it than the first. There were a few scenes that I thought to myself, "Oh my god...How does someone think of that?" However, every single scene like that made perfect, dare I say, even logical sense for how the vampires would actually act. I was surprised by the turn of events. When book one ended, the vampire coven in Washington had been nearly annihilated leaving behind a single master vampire who had been horribly deformed. Since vampires heal many times faster than humans, it was questionable if our hunters would be healed enough to continue going after Toni, the master, before she completely rebuilt her coven. Despite their injuries, our hunters healed rather well and began their assault on the coven home where they exterminated the new vampires, but not the master. She was no where to be seen. Why was that? More masters heard of their failure and came to town to take over rebuilding the vampire population in hopes of gaining control of the entire city. While the new vampires are building their strategy, Drake's good friend and self proclaimed vampire expert, Reese, comes into to town in search of the Vampyrnomicon. This is a legendary book that is supposed to contain the only way to permanently kill all vampires from existence. However, the book also contains information on how vampires could take over the world. It becomes the hunters's goal to get this book before the vampires get word of it. Will they find the book? What will happen when Drake and his crew discover that they no longer face a single master but instead five masters? Through all the mess will Allison finally admit to Drake that she is madly in love him? Read to find out! Read more reviews at Identity Discovery Blog.
