The Vampire Hunters (Vampire Hunters #1) by Scott M. Baker

As former Boston cops, Drake Matthews and Alison Monroe thought they had experienced it all... until they found themselves tracking down a serial killer who turned out to be one of the undead. Stopping him cost them their careers and almost their lives.

Thanks to an influential and anonymous benefactor, Drake and Alison find a new job ridding the streets of Washington D.C. of the vampiric threat terrorizing the nation's capital.

Only this time, Drake and Alison are not facing a single vampire but an entire nest led by Ion Zielenska, one of history's most evil and twisted masters. As the vampires indiscriminately prey on humans, seeing them as nothing more than food to satiate their hunger, they create a wave of violence that threatens to engulf the city.
Orchestrating the carnage is Antoinette Varela, the mistress of the nest, whose vendetta against the hunters is personal.

Wowzers! What can I say about this amazing, fast paced, action filled book without giving you spoilers?! The twists and turns throughout the story seriously left me with whiplash! These "violent" vampires will definitely have you wondering why you even took the time read about all of those "sparkly" vampires ;) Although it does have a hint of romance, this book is absolutely about the action (and blood) which is a refreshing "twist" to the genre. I had a really hard time putting this book down, which was bad since I was reading it right before bed. Needless to say, I read it in one sitting and had an extremely difficult time not starting the next book, Vampyrnomicon. Being able to read this series back to back is going to be ah-mazing! I can't wait to see what happens in book 2 :)

I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

AUTHOR BIO:Born and raised just outside of Boston, Massachusetts, Scott M. Baker has spent the last twenty-two years living in northern Virginia. His first zombie novel, Rotter World, was released by Permuted Press in April 2012. He has also authored The Vampire Hunters trilogy (The Vampire Hunters; The vampire Hunters: Vampyrnomicon; and The Vampire Hunters: Dominion) and several short stories, including the chapbook "Dead Water," "Cruise of the Living Dead" (Dead Worlds 3 anthology), "Deck the Malls with Bowels of Holly" (Christmas Is Dead anthology), and the soon-to-be-published steampunk zombie story "Last Flight of the Bismarck" (Machina Mortis anthology). When he is not busy writing, Scott can either be found relaxing on his back deck with a good cigar and a cup of iced coffee, or doting on the four house rabbits that live with him.
