I cannot rate this author or series of books high enough.

It is one of the most shocking and engrossing series I am ever likely to read.

3.0 out of 5 stars Enough to keep fans interested but not quite a hit 9 Jan 2011
By Gemini Thielman - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
E.E. Knight's ninth entry in the Vampire Earth series, March In Country, is a pleasant surprise after the last few clunkers but still fails to advance the story in any real fashion. While a major Kurian in Atlanta has designs on taking over wartorn Kentucky, Major Valentine has his own plans to repopulate the area with Golden Ones. Will Valentine be able to locate and move grogs from a faraway enclave while just about every faction is allied against him?
While the story and prose kept my interest, the plot for these books just barely continues to plod along. The usual cast of secondary characters are involved (Duvalier, Ahn-Kha, Lambert) but none of them are fleshed out. Blake is seen briefly. A 4th type of hunter is mentioned and is almost immediately discarded. Ahn-Kha and Valentine swear vengeance against General Martinez but this will probably not happen until somewhere around book no. 22.
I admit that I love end of the world tales and Vampire Earth is a doozy. Aliens and their giant nigh-unstoppable soldiers who literally suck the life out of you? Heck yeah? The earth is destroyed through natural disasters, disease and famine and the human population has been reduced to virtual slavery? Tell me more! From the high of the first few books, this series has been something of a letdown. By the ninth book, our hero, Valentine, is already an old man at 30, who loves killing, is an absentee father to his half-alien "son", Blake, but is someone who will risk everything for the sake of his companions and of the innocent.
Is this it for humanity? Besides a relatively small area of the central southern U.S. most of humanity is allied with their alien overlords. And even Southern Command is in a defensive posture. Valentine and his crew are virtually cutoff from any meaningful support. And while virtually every book features the death of a Kurian or two, there doesn't seem to be a shortage of more aliens to fill in the gap. At this rate, E.E. Knight could write fifty books and still not a lot would happen.
I like this series; I always have. But I definitely am not looking forward to reading the next edition anywhere near as much as I used to.

5.0 out of 5 stars Knight brings it back! 5 Jan 2011
By G. Gooc - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The last few books in the Vampire Earth series haven't been particularly good. In fact I'd go so far to say that the previous entry, Winter Duty, almost made me give up on the series. It just seems that Valentine has been either depressed, or in depressed circumstances for so long, that it's hard to enjoy the series.

I'm happy to say that Knight once again got "it" right with March In Country. Old characters are reintroduced, new ones are added in almost perfectly, and enemies made several books ago are finally starting to show their hand. The majority of the book is spent with Valentine, venturing once again into Kurian controlled land, only this time to "rescue" some old friends. While the premise is fairly simplistic, the journey helps to flesh out the Vampire Earth world, as well as fill in plot holes from previous books.

Overall I'm quite satisfied with March, it's a short read that once again gets the formula right. I enjoyed it from cover to cover.

**The only real problem I had with the purchase was the price. Seriously, $12 for an ebook? I realize publishers are trying to protect their precious hardcover sales, but all they're doing is pushing me into only buying from my favorite authors, instead of being more adventurous with my purchases. Not exactly a brilliant economic plan.**

4.0 out of 5 stars Enough FILLER!!! 14 Jan 2011
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
How long are we going to keep going without getting anywhere? There has been no closure in the past three books of this series. I have loved this series since the beginning so I still gave this a 4 star but for someone that does not have time and money invested in this series and author wait until the cheaper priced edition comes out for Kindle.

I thought that since we have spent the last two books on the same story line that we would see some movement in the series. There are still TONS of un-resolved story lines in this book. Did finally see about a new hunter group but not fleshed out much at all. I am really still waiting for a real Bear moment from Valentine. He has had a few but I would really like to see him finally cut loose and see what would happen. The story line IMHO is setting up for another betrayal with Martinez in charge of Southern Command. The story line needs to get something done with this, in previous books, Valentine did not leave anyone behind him that he had a personal grudge with, now it seems that the author is simply seeing how many enemies he can line up at one time, Martinez, Seattle Kurian, etc... Want to see some more movement in the story line. There is some in this book but we really need to see Valentine in the trenches again not in a strategic position....

3.0 out of 5 stars Meh 13 Dec 2011
By Kelsey Coleman-Stark - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
Not quite the utter rubbish that was Winter Duty; but you'll still find the style and technical accuracy of the book lacking when compared to the earlier novels.

I'd say: read the early novels if you can bring yourself to jump ship before you hit Winter Duty. THOSE at least, are well worth reading.

3.0 out of 5 stars Doesn't Go Anywhere....yet. 27 April 2011
By Barry M. Gold - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I have been a VERY faithful reader of EE Knights "Vampire Earth" series. I was hoping for a bit more from this book. Even though this book is a little short, it doesn't forward the story that much if at all. Unless Mr. Knight comes up with a blockbuster for his next book, this will more than likely be the last book that I will read in this series. He either needs to end the series within the next couple of books or really forward the story.
