This continues the Vampire Earth series, with soldier David Valentine fighting with the resistance in Kentucky. It's the year 2077 and the planet has been ruled by the vampiric Kurians for the past fifty years, pitting one faction of humanity against another. The Kurians themselves resemble mini-Cthulhus though they can generate the illusion of human form. They get their sustenance from genetically created creatures called Reapers, which look like the stereotypical vampire. While these things feed on blood the aura from the same victim gets sent, like radio waves, to the controlling Kurian. In fact, a new type of Reaper is introduced here, one that's much larger and tank-like than a human.
The main story involves David being reunited with his alien friend, the wookie-like Ahn-Kha. He's a "Golden One" and his people, thousands of them, are being kept on lands controlled by the vampires. It's David's idea to go and bring them all back to populate war-torn Kentucky, only his commanding officers have other ideas. I found this ninth book of the series much more entertaining than the previous two novels, primarily because more happens and the alien Ahn-Ka makes a return.
