Format: Mass Market Paperback
Way of the Wolf was a bold, exciting beginning to what is definitely shaping up to be an innovative, compelling dark fantasy series from the pen of E.E. Knight. Choice of the Cat takes the heroic journey of protagonist David Valentine in an entirely new direction, one conducive to even more suspenseful action than before. Many a young writer finds it difficult to recreate the magic of a successful first novel, but E.E. Knight has come through with an impressive follow-up sure to delight all fans of dark fantasy and hair-raising heroic adventure.
The setting for The Vampire Earth series is a post-apocalyptic earth of the mid- to late-twenty-first century. Back in 2022, up to 90% of the human population perished as a result of the terrible Ravies plague, but this was just the beginning of Earth's struggle. The Kur, an alien civilization made up of vampiric creatures who feed on the life aura of others, quickly subjugated large portions of the earth. The Kur's most deadly weapons are the Reapers, terrifying, alien beasts through whom the Kur absorb the auras of their victims. Three types of human beings emerged from the apocalypse: those who betray their species and assist the Kur, those who are outwardly ambivalent to the Kur and just try to stay out of trouble, and those willing to fight and die for humanity. David Valentine is one of the latter. After the massacre of his family, the young boy went on to follow in his father's footsteps by becoming a Wolf, a member of the military first line of defense of the Ozark Free Zone.

An excellent sequel. The story continues following a few months covered in the first few pages. As you would imagine we see a change of role for Valentine that allows the author to look at aspects of the world that were not covered in the first novel. We are introduced to new characters, new races, etc. as well as having the joy of watching the development of the books main character.
A well written book as always, the storyline is better than the first book in that less description is needed and more work has been done on discovery and furthering the plotline rather than backfilling 'what has gone before'... the new developments leave plenty of scope for the continuing development of the storyline and leaves you looking forward to the next book!

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Choice of the Cat continues the saga of the battle to retain some freedom and independence in a world controlled by an alien race called Kurians. The takeover of Earth happened in 2022 and the resistance has been fighting for about forty five years to keep from living under the dominance of humans who chose to be controlled by the Kur and their Reapers. The Reaper is a vampire like creature that drains a human of their life force and feeds that aura back to their master. Way of the Wolf (Vampire Earth) is the first book in this fascinating series by author E. E. Knight and really should be read first, just to set all this background firmly in your mind. It would also help to have a pretty firm grasp of the geography of the United States at your fingertips. The stories are contrasts in the primitive and the quasi-advanced methods of fighting to get and hold territory and control the inhabitants.

The fierce spirits of the renegade fighters in these stories appeals to me very much and I think this author has chosen very wisely to put his freedom fighters in the center of America because of all the wilderness areas available for engaging in guerrilla warfare. The alien beings are divided into good and evil forces and David Valentine went through an invocation performed by one of the Lifeweavers to give him Wolf attributes. Now he has been forced to resign his commission and strike out to find another Lifeweaver who can give him the Cat senses he will need to track down The General, a shadowy figure who is marshaling forces under the banner of the twisted cross, a backward swastika emblem worn by a destructive group of Kur and Reapers never seen before.

Vampire Earth series is a recommendable story. The action is fast paced and the storyline is fun to follow. If you enjoy straight forward adventure and don't want to think very hard, pick up this series. It is quite entertaining and these are good books to read on the go.
