I'm not much into the whole vampire horror genre but once in a while I come across a book from that category that I think is really exceptional. This is one of those. Very good plot, characters that are easy to relate to, great dialogue, and simply the kind of book that you can't put down

One of the best vampire novels. Wilson paints an alarming picture of the countryside abandoned to the vampires and their human servants who round up prey, with the remaining humans searching furtively for ways to survive. Into this horrible world, Wilson inserts a group that comes together to take back just a church in New Jersey and then the rest of the eastern seaboard.

It's an excellent adventure that held up even on my second reading. One of my favorite features of this story is the effect a crucifix has on the undead and why. It's something, especially the why, that is overlooked by so many other entries in the vampire genre.
