As you might gather from the title, âVampire Apocalypse: A World Torn Asunderâ by Derek Gunn is about humans trying to defeated a society of vampires and their thralls. Thralls are âhumans who have been bitten, but not yet crossed over, and whose inhuman lusts make daylight as terrifying as night.â This book will capture the interest of any reader who enjoys occult/fantasy/vampire genres. I was hooked from the Prologue.
One of my favorite parts was the humans attempt to get supplies and survivors from the Vampire city. Their timing needs to be perfect, while the vampires are at the end of their shift and (hopefully) tired. âGroup Nero, spread out across the green, used the trees for cover. The darkness was still dense enough to cover their approach, but the first tendrils of dawn were already beginning to make their presence felt on the horizon.â
My only issue with this book is the author should decide if his protagonist is named John Harris (like on the back of the book) or Peter Harris (as he's called in the book itself). This book was a very thrilling read. I could only read it during the day though; it gave me a nightmare the first night. I will be looking for more by Derek Gunn in the future.
