Delta Force Vampire: Insurgency by Alex Shaw
The Government made him Deadly, Vampires made him Immortal…
A new hero and a new genre from Kindle bestselling author Alex Shaw.
Brad Black, call-sign ‘Peter Pan’ is a member of America’s elite Delta Force unit. Tasked to recon a tunnel network in use by the Taliban it is just another day in the sandpit for the Delta Boys until something attacks them in the darkness.
Presumed Killed in Action, Black is abducted by a shadowy figure before being forced to cross the inhospitable Afghan wilderness to be reunited with what is left of his team.
Meanwhile a General from Russian Military Intelligence (GRU) arrives at Firebase Python brining news of a Cold War weapons experiment so shocking that its existence has until now remained top secret.
Horrific secrets buried in the Afghan mountains for a quarter of a century are about to be unleashed.
It took me a little while to get into this book, but in the end I did enjoy it.
I was quite impressed with Shaw’s Vampires; they had some very traditional traits and in other ways felt more human and believable than others I’ve read stories about. There was a line in the book that stated that all humans are born with the Vampire gene and that’s it just waiting to be activated – I really like this theory!!
You get Action, War, Friendship, allied enemies and some spunky Delta boys that become spunky Vampire Delta boys. This is the first book in a new series by Shaw and it will be interesting to see where it goes.
I’m giving it three Stars. It is a good book suited more to anyone into armed forces action adventures. For me personally if there had been some sexual tension or a little bit of romance it would have made more four or five stars, but that’s purely my own reading style. Give it a read, you won’t regret it.
