13 Bullets by David Wellington

The first book in the Laura Caxton Vampire series from the author of the Monster Island trilogy.

All the official reports say that vampires are dead--extinct since the late ’80s, when FBI agent Arkeley defeated the last vampire in a fight that nearly killed him. But when state trooper Laura Caxton calls the FBI looking for help in the middle of the night, Arkeley is unsurprised to hear that it sounds like a vampire attack. He’s been expecting such a call to come eventually. Sure, it has been years since any signs of an attack, but Arkeley knows what most people don’t: there is one left. In an abandoned asylum she is rotting, plotting, and biding her time in a way that only the undead can.

Laura Caxton is out of her league on this case and more than a little afraid. Arkeley made it clear there is only one way out. The worst thing is the feeling that the vampires want more than just her blood. They want her for a reason, one she can’t guess; a reason her sphinxlike partner knows but won’t say; a reason she has to find out-or die trying.

I loved this book and I can not wait to read the other three. I am sick of reading vampire books that are about love and romance. This book was action packed and leaves you wanting more. Also I liked the twist on how the vampires look and what it means to be one. They are not the boy next store, they are monsters that they are supposed to be!

This is a good vampire book, full of excitement and action. I read this after a bout of heavy novels and wanted to read something light and fun. I wasn't disappointed. Though it can be predictable at times, it has it's fair share of twists and turns. The gore is described in great detail, so not for the faint of heart. I do reccomend it for anyone interested in reading a new take on vampires.

Very exciting and interesting. Looking forward to reading more by David Wellington, and hopefully more about Laura Caxton.

After finishing 13 Bullets I couldn't help but, think of it as a book that should have been much better. It had all the right elements but, they just don't come off nearly as clear as they should have. Wellington's violent, action oriented approach is enough to keep you reading but, never seems to draw the reader in the way it should. The characters generally feel underdeveloped(Arkeley being the notable exception). The odd pacing and weak character development hurt the overall feel yet the book still tells an original and usually entertaining story.

This was a decent read. It started off really well, but by the middle of the book the author couldn't decide whether he wanted to write a horror story or a romance novel. So the action kept getting dragged down by useless romance bits. There was a minimal sense of growth of the main character, but only just enough to keep me reading, not enough to be fun though.

Gruesome! No sparkly vampires to whoo you in this book. A strange, yet delicious mix of a cop drama and horror. I enjoyed the author's spin on vampires (evil, violent creatures that turn to goo during the day) and appreciated the female protagonist, but some of the action bored me and the relentless detailed description of their guns and riot armor had me flipping pages. I plan on reading the next book, anyways.

After years of suffering through the Twilights and True Bloods of the world, it's good to finally see someone make vampires evil again. Cold, cunning and calculating, Wellington's vampires are more sociopath than romantic, more animal than outcast, and definitely more serial killer than brooding loner. It even makes fun of those types. Thank you for making vampires monsters again.
