When infected with a bizarre virus, Karen gains, among other powers, the ability to read minds. As she struggles with her situation, a secret branch of the military, devoted to paranormal and supernatural phenomenon, starts their dogged pursuit. They will stop at nothing to catch her, dead or alive.On the run, Karen meets Morgan, an ex-agent of the team that's on her tail, a vampire-turned-vampire hunter. Together, they struggle to stop the government from seizing the virus, a fate worse than contagion: a future of chaos from which there is no return."David Bernstein has a knack for getting to the heart of a story, and with Tears of No Return, he's taken a classic tale of lovers on the run and made it boldly and genuinely his own. Reading Bernstein's latest, I felt like I was reliving everything I loved about The X-Files, and Dean Koontz, and Buffy the Vampire Slayer...yet filtered through a tough, original voice, one that maintains perfect control over the story at all times. I've said before that Bernstein is who you should be reading now, and this book is absolute confirmation that Bernstein is a storyteller of the first stripe."-Joe McKinney, Bram Stoker Award-winning author of Flesh Eaters and Inheritance"Tears of No Return begins with a gripping chaos of mind-readers, secret government agencies and vampires and never lets up. It demands to be read for all its intensity. David Bernstein plants a central idea in a minefield and just sits back and watches the explosions domino on each other. Thoroughly entertaining and highly recommended!"-Benjamin Kane Ethridge, Bram Stoker Award winning author of Black & Orange and Dungeon Brain "David Bernstein deftly threads the needle with this one, intertwining genres and stitching together with honed precision a story of two most improbable protagonists thrown together to foil a most devious government agency. There are aliens. There are vampires. And amidst a relentless narrative, blood spills, tears fall, and the tropes get wonderfully skewed! This is what the Friday-Night-Frights always wanted to be! I loved this!"-Jon Michael Kelley, author of Seraphim… (more)

Story is fairly interesting until about 3/4th though, where the author gives too much attention to Elise who doesn't matter to the story at all (and detracts even more from the main characters lack of chemistry) and also gives more history for Paul than is necessary. Plus at this point the characters and story are kind of at a standstill. Once you get past that the ending is decent. ( )
