Summary

An ancient vampire has descended on Isherwood, Indiana, turning its townspeople into a legion of bloodthirsty monsters, and only one man can stop them. Chris Stiles, once a Vietnam War soldier, is now the ultimate vampire hunter. With the help of the ghost of his dead brother, who was killed by the monsters, and an arsenal of high-powered weaponry, Chris is ready for a new war - this time not with the Viet Cong, but against an army of the Undead!

I've got a strimmer like this book

I pull and pull, it finally starts revs a little, then dies and i just cant get it started again. Oh yes, Matt Godfrey is fantastic narrator. But not even Matt can fix this strimmer.

Another Great Paperbacks From Hell Title

I've really enjoyed the Valencourt Books Paperbacks From Hell series so far. It's great to see some underappreciated horror gems get the opportunity to reach a wider audience. Nightblood is a fun cross between 'Salem's Lot and First Blood. The book is well written with great characterization. My only issue is some of the chapters go on longer than they really need to. I think if the book had a tighter edit I would have given it full marks. Once again, Matt Godfrey is an absolute pleasure to listen to. Definitely one of my favourite audiobook narrators. Highly recommended.

Pulpy, Action-Packed Vampire Fun

I received a free copy of this audiobook from the publisher, so I am providing an honest review in return. There is one small spoiler in this review. Do you enjoy hyper-masculine pulpy action stories in the vein (no pun intended) of Robert E. Howard's Solomon Kane stories about a Puritan demon-hunter? Did you read Stephen King's vampire novel 'SALEM'S LOT and feel it would have been better with more machine guns? Do you like stories where the main protagonist is a ruggedly-handsome, battle-scarred Vietnam veteran who falls in love with a good woman but struggles between his desire to settle for the domestic life with said good woman and his inner duty to keep being a badass monster killer, even if doing so means he must leave the woman he loves (so that she can be safe, of course)? If you answered affirmatively to any of these questions, this book is for you. This book is completely bonkers, silly, and ridiculous with a grand-standing vampire villain who wears a red Adidas track suit (I know, right?) and *SPOILER* who forces our hero to drink his (the villain's) blood from his penis. It's problematic in so many ways, from moments of casual racism to moments of casual homophobia. (Or is it just closeted queerness masked by masculine bravado? I honestly can't decide.) If any of these things turn you off, best to move along and choose something else to read. If you can look past its flaws, however, this book is REALLY fun. It's trash, pure and simple, but is it glorious, sleazy, delicious trash. If Taco Bell were a book, this would be it. The narration is great. Anyone who is familiar with Matt Godfrey's other work will be treated to the same performance quality that has, in my experience, become Godfrey's standard. He's one of my favorite audiobook narrators, and he's a helluva nice guy to boot. If this book isn't your speed, consider instead listening to the audiobook for Michael McDowell's Southern Gothic saga, BLACKWATER. That was my first exposure to Matt Godfrey's narration, and it is an EXCELLENT book.

Rambo vs King Vampire

Vietnam vet goes against a townfull of vampires. Very entertaining, even when at least one of the deaths (which should have been devastating) gets almost no reaction. More 80's action movie than horror, but lots of fun.
