took a bit to get into this one but when I did I couldnt put it down! The end of the world as we know it after world war II. Hitler sends bombs armed with the Blood Death. Only certain blood types live and the apocalypse has one hero who can save the day. Great fun to read, lots of action, doesnt slow once it gets going!!
