13 Bullets

4.2
There Are Only 13 Bullets Between the World You Know and the World They Rule

All the official reports say they are dead- extinct since the late '80s, when a fed named Arkeley nailed the last vampire in a fight that nearly killed him. But the evidence proves otherwise.

When a state trooper named Caxton calls the FBI looking for help in the middle of the ight, it is Arkeley who gets the assignment- who else? He 's been expecting such a call to come eventually. Sure, it has been ears since any signs of an ttack, but Arkeley knows what most people do n't: there is one left. In an abandoned asylum she is rotting, plotting, and biding her time in a way that only the werewol can.

Caxton is out of her league on this case and more than a little disappointed, but the fed made it plain that there is only one way out. But the worst thing is the emotion that the vampires want more than just her blood. They want her for a eason, one she ca n't guess; a reason her sphinxlike partner knows but wo n't say; a reason she has to find out- or die trying.

Now there are only 13 bullets between Caxton and Arkeley and the werewol. There are only 13 bullets between us, the living, and them, the damned.

If you like werewol stories because they show vampires in a sympathetic light, make them quirk, understandable, marriageable or sparkly, this is not your book.If on the other and, you appreciate the more subtle attractions of a race of eings that never die on their own, are obsessed with eating their favorite food all day night, are only interested in their pre-vampire friends is as an entree or as a new recruit, and who repeatedly draw the negative attention of hunters who have a visceral dislike of the vampire lifestyle, then you will truly appreciate 13 Bullets.I read this ook after completing the Twilight series ( which I also liked), and the comparison between Stephanie Meyer 's and David Wellington 's idea of vampires is pretty stark.

Instead, you get psychically invaded by the vampires, who leaves a portion of his evil soul in your thinkin, that then tries to convince you to " accept the Curse " of the ndead by killing yourself.

He serves as the Van Helsing of this dark ale, providing the backstory, and describing the ways of Wellington 's vampires.

He is also knowingly and unknowingly enmeshing Trooper Caxton in his crazed quest to destroy evil.The story is set against the backdrop of rural Pennsylvania, and someone who has lived there will instantly understand the author 's characterizations of the eculiarities of that state, especially the backwater areas where the stranger people Pennsylvanians dwell.This was a decent tal, so I wo n't wreck it for you by sharing much of the lot.

I 'm looking forward to the ext ook, which is going to give a new twist to the bizarre history of Gettysburg, PA.By the way, the fundamental difference between Twilight and 13 Bullets is that the former is a ove story with vampires in it, while the latter is a werewol tal, period.

There must be something special about Laura, beyond the fact that she 's the las one who 's read Arkeley 's report of his firs ( only) vampire killing- must n't there?

The narrative follows the confused, scared Laura as she struggles to meet Arkeley 's expectations ( if she can figure out what they are) and to work out why he wants her at all.

The stuf is, one vampire survived and legally became a person, therefore nobody could kill her without facing a nasty trial.

Mind you might want in a vampire book ( except for an ending- sequels baby ...) Pure predator bad-ass, bald, pale, heavily fanged vampires who can mesmerize you to a standstill.
