This is a great series. It puts a new spin on the vampire mythology and combines it with contemporary detective noir. It doesn't pander to the lowest denominator as Twilight does; there are no depressed teens caught in a love triangle here, thank God for that. The Nymphos of Rocky Flats is a great book for any vampire fan who is looking for a more mature read. A word of caution, if you actually enjoyed Twilight, don't bother with this book, there's no teenage drama and the vampires are honest to God killers. For a good mix of offbeat humor and violence checkout the rest of the series.

When he served in the military in Iraq Felix Gomez and his unit slaughtered what turned out to be an innocent family. Feeling remorse and guilt, a depressed Felix meets a person who fulfills his wish of a fate worse then death by converting the GI into a vampire. Now a civilian back in the states, Felix concluded that his new supernatural powers will enhance his chances at success as a private investigator. --- College roommate Gilbert Odin, Assistant Manager for Environmental Restoration at the Department of Energy site in Rocky Flat, Colorado asks Felix to investigate an apparent outbreak of nymphomania among female guards at a plutonium processing plant. However, the case is not as simple or isolated as it first appears. Professional vampire slayers want to kill all the undead dead in America and are focused on Gilbert and any other bloodsucker nearby a dryadic siren demands partnering him on his sleuthing and in his bunk. Finally there is the Feds who want Felix to end his inquiries and will do what ever it takes to insure he does. --- Though the sex scenes seem intrusive instead of part of the fun supernatural thriller and the ending rushed, fans will enjoy this exciting investigative tale starring a fascinating ethical protagonist. The exhilarating story line includes dangerous powerful paranormal creatures yet the most treacherous animal of all are species Fed. Felix is a fine lead sleuth who keeps the tale centered and moving so that the audience roots for him as one clue after another takes him into a perilous situation. Mario Acevedo provides an entertaining supernatural mystery. --- Harriet Klausner

The Nymphos of Rocky Flats takes place during the Iraq war and is about a solider named Felix who accidently kills some civilians, he thought that they were soldiers from Iraq and that they were going to try to kill him before he killed them. Felix feels guilty after he realized what he had done and then runs into a vampire who gives him his punishment by making him immortal so that he will have to live with the guilt forever. Felix has to wear make up to cover his skin from the sun and he claims to everyone that it is just a skin condition so that they won't question it anymore. One of his old buddies tracks him down and explains that there is something wrong with the woman of rocky flats. He tells Felix that the women have become nymphomaniacs and he wants him to figure out why. I wont ruin the rest of the story you'll just have to read it yourself to find out why this women of rocky flats have gone thirsty for the men. I did enjoy this book because I like a good vampire book that keeps me wanting to read. I very much enjoyed the story line but I think that the ending dragged on a little more than it should have I think it would help the reader if the ending was cut a little shorter and just got to the point a little faster that it did. I have not read any other work by Mario Acevedo but I would love to read more of his work.
