What I Thought:

OK, I'll go out on a limb here and say that this was one of the most unique "vampire" stories I've read in a while. (I say that for several reasons)

This one uses Native American myth and legend as the basis for the storyline. I really enjoyed Michael's use of his characters in this one because he made them seem very real.

The "vampires" in this story were, in my opinion, very original. I've never (personally) read of ancient bloodsuckers controlled by the life force of an ancient dragon.

This was certainly a horror story, and if you like gore in your horror then you should check this one out. It really packs a punch!


About The Book:
(from Amazon)

The discovery of an immense pterosaur skeleton lures paleontologist Kim Axon to the tar sands near her childhood home of Fort Mic. But Kim's not the only one drawn to the find's siren call, and the others are coming for a very different reason. Fort Mic, where Kim's father was murdered long ago, is both blessed and cursed by the shadow population who gravitate to the area for cheap trailers while they mine the sands for oil. Townsfolk begin to fall sick. Fearing the spread of the strange disease, the new doctor quarantines the town. Now alone, the broken community must rise above its past to battle outsiders who do not fear the return of an ancient evil, but worship it.
