4.0 out of 5 stars an unoriginal concept done originally 19 Feb 2003
Format:Paperback
what can I say? well lots of things, this books is great. when I picked it up I was expecting your typical "vampire" novel i.e. lots of gore, brooding vampires and perfect good guys with all the depth of a puddle. what you actually get is a cynical look at the vampire myth, the vampires are real, garlic doesnt work but ramming a bloody big steak through them and dragging them out into sunlight does. the vatican knows about the vampires and does support "Team Crow" (even sending a well trained well armed priest along to help (imagine Rambo in a confessional ;)), he kills of major characters with seeming abandon (always good), hell its a fun read all the way, literature it isnt but it will pass the time, doesnt descend into farce (with the good guys taking on a huge seemingly unlimted army of super strong vampires etc) and is resolved well

5.0 out of 5 stars Liked the film LOVED the book 16 May 2003
Format:Paperback
I picked up this book after seeing the film and it blew me away. So good in fact that it takes away some of the enjoyment from watching the film. The book has so much more going on, better characters and a much different ending. It cracks along at a phenomenal pace with plenty of action, laughs and a real "human" element that the film just couldn't re-create. A truly great concept given the execution it deserved. It's hard to believe John Steakley has done such few novels when this one at least is SO good.

Format:Paperback
Well , I have to say that although Vampire$ won't tax the brain too hard,it is a great read.Its a tale of modern day Vampire hunters set in mid-America.
Surprisingly though , the Catholic Church know about the existence of the Vampires and fund the hunters in their work . The team is lead by Jack Crow (readers of Armor will know of him) and when a job gets botched up , the team ends up becoming the hunted. This establishes the setting for the book.
The difference between Vampire$ and other vampire novels is that its more of an action thriller and that provides an interesting twist to the genre.
As I said at the start of the review , Vampire$ wont tax the brain , but it is the coolest novel in my collection and my favourite. Read it if you like a different type of action/horror novel.
