For those who are reading Maberry's Joe Ledger series, this book is going to knock you on your ass plot wise. It continues to follow the arc of fighting unknown evils in a world where we are kept blissfully unaware of the horrorshow behind the scenes. Ledger and the DMS have already conquored biological warfare, genetic engineering, nazis offspring, secret societies, varying global destruction plots, and the trust of bottled water.. How is a guy supposed to top that? Maberry has no trouble doing so. He pulls from his world an ancient pact in the middle east, rival factions and an absolutely f*cked up history for some potential Department of Military Sciences allies, some long awaited glimpses into Church (the man and the org) backstory, and a whole lot more.

The difficulty here is a this is book four in a series. Book five is already on shelves, the sixth book is coming out April 2014 (this month) and a collection of digital shorts in the same universe is also ready to stock in bookstores. What this means is that pretty much everything that I say will be a spoiler. I must be delicately aware of my wording so I do not give plot elements away. My delicate resolve will be just to avoid the plot completely.

I would like to point out that Joe ledger became quite the mouth dude this book. His sarcasm was always pretty intense in previous books. When he would normally be very careful in wording, he seemed to be overtly antagonistic and unable to concentrate on the finer points of common conversations. Though this did not make for a bad book, it did add a a level of tedium to the novel that is normally absent.

Not the strangest in the series so far; but maybe the most violent.

All of the Joe Ledger books are an odd but compelling mashup of military thriller and science fiction horror. Maberry writes a lot of detail, a lot of emotion, and a lot of action. ( )

This one is a step away from the more cutting edge science that Maberry delves into in alot of his stories and goes back to the old age issues. Vampires are an undercurrent all through this book, and they are welcome.
Vampirism in this book is due to a stunt in evolution to a certain group of people and they are looking to prosper once again.
I love Maberry and all his writings and this one is no different. His style is all its own it grabs your attention and holds it the entire time leaving you wanting more. ( )
