They are hunting us.
In this sweeping, threaded narrative of the global phenomenon known as the Vampire Wars, mankind is unwittingly infected by a millennia-old bacteria unknowingly exhumed by a scientific expedition in Antarctica. Now, in some rare cases, a person’s so-called junk DNA becomes activated. Depending on their racial and ethnic heritage, they begin to manifest one of the many diverse forms of the “others” that are the true basis for the legends of supernatural creatures. These aren’t your usual vampires and werewolves—it goes much deeper than that.
Conceived by Jonathan Maberry, V Wars features stories from various frontlines as reported by such contributors as Nancy Holder, Yvonne Navarro, James A. Moore, Gregory Frost, John Everson, Keith R. A. DeCandido, and Scott Nicholson—as well as Maberry himself, of course. The result is a compelling series of tales that creates a unique chronicle of mankind’s response to this sudden, hidden threat to humanity.
The narrators of this audio production include Grammy, Emmy, Tony, and Audie award winners.

Slow, very, very slowFebruary 16, 2013I have to say I am a big Jonathan Maberry fan. I loved The Dragon Factory (2010), The King of Plagues (2011), Patient Zero (2009) with new quasi hero Joe Ledger, and his other books... he writes great stories. V Wars, well, have to say it took a lot of slogging to get to the end. Way too much vamp-porn, over and over and over, blood, blood, blood as a sexual experience. More story, less porn, please! This book just kind of wanders all over the place, losing the precious little bit of story with which it started. You might say it is more a study of characters except the characters are generally unlikable and most went into the orgasmic blood that went on for pages. Yuck!
And really - MORE story!
