Is only one way out But the worst thing is the feeling that the vampires want than just her blood They want her for a reason one she can't guess; a reason her sphinxlike partner knows but won't say; a reason she has to find out or die tryingNow there are only 13 bullets between Caxton and Arkeley and the vampires There are only 13 bullets between us the living and them the damned.

There Are Only 13 Bullets Between the World You Know and the World They RuleAll the official reports say they are dead extinct since the late '80s when a fed named Arkeley nailed the last vampire in a fight that nearly killed him But the evidence proves otherwiseWhen a state trooper named Caxton calls the FBI looking for help in the middle of the night it is Arkeley who gets the a. If you like vampire stories because they show vampires in a sympathetic light make them lovable understandable marriageable or sparkly this is not your bookIf on the other hand you appreciate the subtle attractions of a race of beings that never die on their own are obsessed with eating their favorite food all day night are only interested in their pre vampire friends is as an entree or as a new recruit and who repeatedly draw the negative attention of hunters who have a visceral dislike of the vampire lifestyle then you will truly appreciate 13 BulletsI read this book after completing the Twilight series which I also liked and the contrast between Stephanie Meyer s and David Wellington s idea of vampires is pretty stark In David Wellington s universe there are no vegetarian vampires they all need human blood and lots of it His vampires are pale but they aren t beautiful think Nosferatu on steroids You wouldn t want to kiss one because of all the extra teeth they develop and the fact that they usually are biting you with said teeth They re indestructible super strong fast healing bald as cue balls have funny looking ears and unruly dispositions They live forever just like the Cullen family but one of the wrinkles about being a Wellingtonian vampire is that as you get older you need blood so that by the time you are a hundred years old you re never going to get enough of your favorite drink with out making some vampires to help you satisfy your appetite by collecting blood for you It s sort of an undead pyramid scheme except that no one who is recruited gets to leave the Amway clan once they joinAnd how do you get recruited Well you don t get bitten Instead you get psychically invaded by the vampire who leaves a portion of his evil soul in your mind that then tries to convince you to accept the Curse of the undead by killing yourself This vampiric Trojan horse never goes away even if you manage to kill your attacker So have a bad day at work or start feeling a little down on your life and you re starting down the slippery slope to an all liuid dietSo if the vampires are the bad guys who are the good guys Like Twilight this book has a heroine who is the focus of the book However she is almost entirely unlike Bella Swan in every way Laura Caxton is a grown up whose parents are dead as a result of sad but mundane causes She is a Pennsylvania state trooper and is a lesbian in a committed relationship She is driven to succeed in her life but unsure of herself because she doesn t realize her worth and her inner strength She is also for reasons she doesn t understand a vampire magnet As a person with real strengths and flaws she is a sympathetic character and one that the reader hopes will persevere and survive until the next book at leastHer boss is less sympathetic but just as flawed Jameson Arkeley is a Special Deputy in the US Marshals Service who has dedicated his career to rooting out and destroying the vampire menace He s grouchy uncompromising esoteric and rude He doesn t tell Caxton his complete plan until it s nearly too late He serves as the Van Helsing of this dark tale providing the backstory and describing the ways of Wellington s vampires He is also knowingly and unknowingly enmeshing Trooper Caxton in his crazed uest to destroy evilThe story is set against the backdrop of rural Pennsylvania and anyone who has lived there will instantly understand the author s characterizations of the peculiarities of that state especially the backwater areas where the stranger people Pennsylvanians dwellThis was a good story so I won t wreck it for you by sharing much of the plot Just watch out for the unexpected plot twist at the end that brings everything into a much sharper focus I m looking forward to the next book which is going to give a new twist to the bizarre history of Gettysburg PABy the way the fundamental difference between Twilight and 13 Bullets is that the former is a love story with vampires in

Not pretty vampires at allThis was a fun fast read full of action These vampires are very mean not pretty and no longer human The story was good and flowed at a fast pace The characters were like able I would continue this series
