Plague of the Undead

Want a good read, hordes of vampires, vampire hunters and some history thrown in? Then this is the book for you.

Plague of the Undead by Gary Cross is the first book in the Chronicles of Blood.
It begins in 1650 in Northern Italy when Lucius’s father returns as a vampire and kills his entire family. Lucius is spared, becomes a vampire hunter and spurred on by revenge begins the hunt for the master vampire.
His journey takes him through Paris and Europe until he arrives in London, ridden by the plague and now vampires. Lucius and his small band of vampire hunters battle against the master vampire and his horde of thousands, aided by the Great Fire of London which destroys most of London. Vampires included.
Unfortunately the master vampire escapes but Lucius and his new ally Peter vow to hunt him down. Even if it means traveling to the New World.

A good read and leaves me eager for the next book in the series.
