Vampire Zero: A gruesome vampire tale

Front Cover
Allen & Unwin, 2008 - Fiction - 331 pages
Caxton fired again, and this time hit her target. The bullet clanged off his chest and spun away into darkness. How was it possible? Jameson's body curled up like a caterpillar in a fire, but only for an instant. He straightened up quickly - and then he was on her. It was that fast. She felt a cold wind blowing toward her and then she was on the floor with the vampire on top of her, pinning down her gun hand, his teeth pressing against her cheek. He felt cold and wrong and he stank of death.

Compelling, explosive and hypnotic, Vampire Zero is the final book in David Wellington's vampire trilogy, a thrilling chase through a fear-inducing landscape, seen through the eyes of the fearless yet flawed heroes of 13 Bullets and 99 Coffins. In this final gripping installment, Caxton is left to fight alone as Jameson is seized by the dark side and becomes the most terrifying enemy she has ever had to face. How can she face the unthinkable? Who can she trust in a world where nothing is as it seems?
