History believes me to be a merciless savage. A terror upon the Earth known as The Impaler. Archaic lore whispers I am the first of the vampire lineage.

These claims … are all painted in bloody truth.

Now, while the world watches in fear, a war is brewing. Humans are targeting vampires in merciless attacks to force us back into the shadows.

They woke me to be their weapon.
They know not my loathing for my own kind.
Even I cannot say for certain whose side I’m on.

I have bowed before the alter of darkness rooted in the Nosferatu bloodline. Been forced to drink of its bitter sacrament. They refer to me as The Son of The Dragon, and I laugh. For I, alone, know that malevolent essence is one no man could ever tame.

My Review:

At one time vampires and humans worked together in the same places with the same jobs and lived in the same neighborhood or the same apartment building but things are changing war is on the horizon as someone is targeting the vampires causing the vampires to lose control and attack humans viciously.

Why are vampires all of a sudden attacking humans? Are the humans behind the attacks? Why would humans cause vampires to attack them? Do they want to send them back in hiding? Are they afraid of the vampires once again?

Vlad is a very fast paced and engrossing story. I love the world that the author has created for the vampires and the humans to live together. Vlad is a very intense read that will keep you hanging on and coming back for more trying to figure out what is going to happen next and how all the characters’ lives fit together.

The ending was so amazing and just blew me right out of my seat I never saw it coming. This is one awesome series that I can’t seem to get enough of and I can’t wait to see what all the characters have in store for us in the next book.

I would recommend Vlad to all fans of vampires, paranormal and fantasy worlds.
