When an EMF bomb goes off and disables everything electric including the ship itself. Everyone starts to panic, Then a helicopter drops a large container on the ship. This is when the trouble really starts.
I gave this book 4-Stars. I did enjoy but I'm glad I got it for free on kindle unlimited as I found it a bit of a slow starter and it didn't really get me going towards the end.
I liked how the vampires weren't your typical vampire that you get these days, I did enjoy how they were different. The way I pictured them in my head is very different to how they are portrayed in many other books/films and shows these days.
I found I liked Dan as a character I could relate to him as I suffer from the same anxiety issues as he does, for other reasons but still. I do like a character I can relate to. I also liked how the brothers redeemed themselves in the end.
I will be reading book two but again I can get it free with Kindle Unlimited so I don't think I shall be purchasing it.
