This is pretty cliched. Ancient vampire found in a cave is brought back to life by scientists stumbling around with it, creating super soldiers. The side effects aren't great. Captain Scott Boulder is the leader of this special-ops team, unchanged. He has to team up with anthropologist Leah Maguire to hunt the vampire and to save humanity.

The romance feels a bit forced and the special ops guys come out of central casting. I found it very readable but nothing special. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0345501047, Mass Market Paperback)

Spawned of alchemy and blood, he was the last of a brutal, ancient line. Now he has just been reborn.

Deep in a Texas cave, the military unearths a five-hundred-year-old corpse, its desiccated flesh teeming with mysterious DNA that can transform mortals into beings of unimaginable power.

Captain Scott Boulder, leader of a Black Ops unit that has been endowed with these superhuman abilities, is among the first to benefit from the find. But when, with the help of a voodoo priestess, the creature is conjured to life, unleashing an ancient evil bent on reinstating its poisonous kind on earth, Scott knows he must return the monster to the grave. But this is no ordinary vampire. Once a brutal torturer in the Spanish Inquisition, it can bend the laws of science and magic in horrifying new ways.

Powerless to fight this evil alone, Scott grudgingly seeks the aid of reclusive anthropologist Leah Maguire, an expert in the mystical rituals of the past. To keep humanity from entering a new Dark Age, Scott and Leah will battle unspeakable horrors and will sacrifice everything they hold dear–perhaps even their own humanity–to destroy the last vampire.
