Product Description

Product Description

Mankind has fallen to darkness and a new breed rules the earth. The age of the vampire has begun.

Few survived the fall of man. Those who remain to witness the darkening of the world live by the gun or live in fear. There is no middle ground.

The cities lay in ruin after the last war and vampires have inherited the blasted remnants.

And yet some will not cower in the night. They fight because there is nothing left to them. They fight without hope of peace or victory.

In a war with no end, in a land without succour, what chance do the survivors have? The war was lost as soon as it was begun. But there is still the past...and perhaps, a future.

And through it all, one man stands vigil.

***contains bonus material***

Samples of Richard Rhys Jones' Division of the Damned, David Conyers' The Entrophy Conflict, and A Stranger's Grave, from Craig Saunders.

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent read 14 May 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
I'll keep it brief and skip going into the plot as I don't want to spoil anything for anyone.

An excellent read, with a story that skips effortlessly back and forth from the future to the past and still manages to hold the momentum. Although Vampire apocalypse is an old theme, Mr. Saunders manages to breathe new life into it with his well rounded characters, uncluttered writing style and incisive metaphor.

As I wrote earlier, an excellent read, a bloody good story and I'd give it six stars if I could.

4.0 out of 5 stars Vampire apocalypse 20 May 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I really enjoyed this novel, an original vampire tale with a twist. The vamps are nasty, infectious and bloodthirsty (no pathetic sparklers here, luckily). It's an excellent mix of sci-fi and horror. Well-recommended to fans of apocalyptic fiction. Great stuff.

5.0 out of 5 stars Vigil: Vampire Apocalypse 19 May 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The potential for confusion is great in such stories but this flowed effortlessly. Very hard to put down, I rate this as one of the best vampire stories I have read and look forward to trying some of the authors other work.

3.0 out of 5 stars Post apocolyptic vampire horror 14 July 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book deserves 3 1/2 stars. It is a story using the very well used theme of ,in this case vampires, hunting down the last human survivors to "farm" for food, but it has a very strong sci/fi side to it as well which is what gives the story some rather good twists. The vampires are blood thirsty proper monsters and the human survivors are hardened and battle ready. No romance or sparkling here!
This book certainly will suit anybody who likes the post apocalyptic genre more than a gothic vampire fan because of it's sci/fi background. No crumbling mist covered castles here.
I enjoyed reading this book ,though it isn't exactly what I'm into, but I would certainly consider reading other books by Craig Saunders.

4.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable vampire novel 1 Jun 2013
By Zed
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
An in depth view point of a vampire through decades and centuries of a cursed but cherished life. Notwithstanding the constant grammar errors, the book is well written and the different time dimensions flaw gracefully.
It is fast paced for most of the journey until the finale when the story becomes pedestrian just at the juncture you're expecting to be overwhelmed by a grand finale. Instead the ending fades out with a whimper.
Had the ending been more adventurous and the book been better edited then it would have received 5 stars.
Would definitely recommend the book to vampire enthusiasts as I'm certain they will enjoy it as much I have.
