Human/Vampire hybrid Gabriel Brimstone walks between the worlds of the living and the dead. He hunts vampires and slays them with remarkable ease. However, the years have taken their toll on him physically, mentally and emotionally. Guilt-ridden Brimstone must wrestle with his innermost demons by acknowledging his thirst for human blood. While on the hunt for the elusive vampire, Valimus, Brimstone joins a local chapter of AA to face his addiction. Unfortunately, the demons of Culver's Bay are circling and they smell his internal struggles. As Brimstone's fragile psyche begins to crack, he learns of a centuries old prophecy that could spell the end of humanity as we know it. Valimus' endgame is learned and Brimstone knows that it resides within a man known as Richard Stoker. Who is Stoker and what does he have to do with Valimus' plan for world domination? Will Gabriel Brimstone stop this vampire apocalypse and come to terms with what he is?

Ok... so I started this book thinking it would be your "typical" vampire hunter story replete with good old fashion paranormal violence and vampire killing. The book cover was a little strange, but I was willing to give it a chance based on the recommendation of a friend. As I read I was still convinced it was a very typical story, though I did like the idea that the main character chose to deal with his "thirst" by applying the principles of AA. As I kept reading I realized that this is not the usual story of hunting the undead. It has some very cool twist that will make you want to read it again to find all the things you missed the first time through. There are some plot transitions that could be smoother. However, those disjointed moments give insight to the internal world of the main character. It is good effort for a new writer and it was nice to see someone take this genre into new territory. I look forward reading more from Mr. Browning.
