Here's what

Fans are saying


the Cull: Bloodline

Confident, tough as nails and action packed! the CULL - Bloodline weaves an incredibly fast paced and detailed plot that reads like an action movie Jason Bourne would be envious of.

This title appealed to me on so many levels. Give me a strong female protagonist with actual intelligence, a swift sense of justice and some wicked cool gadgets, and I'm a happy gal. Check! the CULL - Bloodline gives us two for the price of one. Give me a new way to look at vampires, and I'm a really happy gal. Double check!

None of that cuddly/creepy once bitten, twice dead stuff. Wrap it all up in the confines of government and Vatican conspiracy, then mainline the adrenaline. CHECK, CHECK CHECK!!!

But wait, there's more! The story isn't sidelined by swooning nonsense. Can you hear me singing Independent Women?

Mr. Gates has done his homework (or lived it), the attention to detail is top notch and the pacing is incredible. Couple that with a high-impact, adrenaline fueled story, and you've got an instant hit with readers.

Gates has a knack for directing his reader's emotional response throughout, ratcheting the adrenaline up with quick, concise, impacting dialog and action. Then seamlessly transitioning to bring us back down through nearly hypnotic melodious syntax.

I highly recommend the CULL - Bloodline to fans of Paranormal, Crime, Mystery, Suspense and Espionage novels. Those of you who just have to have a dose of romance are strongly cautioned. There's no room for it in this title, because it's already brimming with too much awesome.

Eric J. Gates' "The Cull - Bloodline" is a vampire book with a difference.

Instead of being presented with the sparkly vampires of "Twilight" fame, or swimming in the overfished waters of the Vlad legend, we are here given the vampire-as-serial-killer motif. Expunge from your mind the tired cliches of fangs and crucifixes.

Gates' vampires are creatures of genetic mutation, and all the more deadly for that. No airy-fairy mysticism here, just blood, knives, bullets and the thrill of the chase. But who is hunting whom?

The author weaves a refreshing tale of two strong women (yes - women!) agents pursuing a dangerous quarry, while themselves being pursued.

Throw in murky government agencies, the Vatican, lots of IT wizardry, and any number of other players with their own violent agendas, and you have the recipe for a great page-turner.

This is a gripping action book, fast-paced and addictive. You're going to have a problem putting it down. Remember to breathe.
