Evil Against Evil...Who Will You Be Rooting For? September 8, 2012. By The Kindle Book Review TOP 500 REVIEWER.
Jeff Dawson has definitely unromanticized vampires; brought them back to the level of the feared creatures they started as and pitted them against a nation of people who have come to be synonymous with hate, savagery; a despicable nation...the Nazi.If you like your vampires to be real vampires, if you like your history, if the combining of the two intrigues you then you will thoroughly enjoy "Occupation". Mr. Dawson does a great job of pitting evil against evil in living color, no holds barred, fight to the death story that will keep you entertained long after the final page is turned.

More About the Author

Mr. Dawson was involved in the road construction business for over twenty-five years. He endured great highs and lows: fathered three children, went through a divorce, two failed business ventures, bankruptcy, multiple surgeries and a reunification with his high school sweetheart, Debbie, who he would kiss goodbye for the last time seven months later.

His last surgery in 2010 forced him to temporarily exit the construction industry. With one career behind him, he ventured into a new one--writing. The first stories he wrote are real life scenarios dealing with losing loved ones to cancer: his partner, father and Debbie. These works are both honest and heart-warming. He holds nothing back as he allows readers to look deep into the psyche of one who has loved and lost so much.

He has also written books in the following genres: science/fiction, time travel, Baseball coaching manuals, horror, poetry, alternative history and erotica.
He currently lives in the DFW area spending time with friends and family.

Jeff Dawson knew where he was going when he embarked upon the telling of this tale, and he strode into the past so successfully that I genuinely feel as though I spent time in that frightful place and time.

When the Germans invade Poland during WWII, they get a lot more than they bargained for because Nikoli Romanov and Kirilli Boirarsky lead two vampire clans who have grown used to a steady supply of blood. Their previous standing agreement with the locals was that they would kill only the weak and infirm while leaving the rest of the human population to live their lives in an uneasy peace. But as the Nazis begin stripping the local peasants away and sending them to death camps by rail, the vampires are forced to begin feeding the old fashioned way: by force. As the two clans forage further and further into the countryside for fresh kills, it soon becomes obvious that the Germans must go. The only question is, can the two clans refrain from killing each other long enough to drive Hitler's troops from their hunting grounds. You'll be surprised and thrilled as the action unfolds.

"Occupation" doesn't try to smooth out or gloss over the reknown violence of vampires, it instead harkens back to the brutal and largely emotionless existence that those accursed creatures were always believed to live. In other words, this book is about Nazis versus Vampires, about evil versus evil, and the author doesn't shuffle gently around the blood and gore their clash creates.

Don't miss this visit to a dark time in history.

Jeff Dawson has definitely un-romanticized vampires; brought them back to the level of the feared creatures they started as and pitted them against a nation of people who have come to be synonymous with hate, savagery; a despicable nation...the Nazi.

When Germany invades Poland during WWII, they get a lot more than they anticipated given that in this area lives two clans of vampires; the Boirarskys and the Romanovs. These two feuding clans years ago made a covenant with the residents; they would only feed on the old, infirm, and sick while leaving the young and healthy untouched. This pact has allowed both groups to live in relative peace with each other. Then the Nazis show up, invade their territory and start shipping out their food supply, eventually forcing both clans to return to the old ways and hunt previously untouchable people to survive.

The Boirarsky clan is headed by Kirilli. He has his people living on a well-maintained estate with all the comforts any wealthy family could expect while trying to lead with compassion. The Romanov clan is headed by Nikoli who is the exact opposite of Kirilli. He has his people living in squalor conditions and rules with cruelty. Neither clan can stand each other and have been feuding with each other forever but now that their survival is on the line they need to work together, somehow, if they are to continue to exist. But can they put their differences aside for the betterment of all involved?

They come up with a plan to rid the area of the Nazis and bring back their life-sustaining food source. Yet how can either clan trust the other will keep their end of the bargain?

Full disclosure, I received a copy of this book from the author for purposes of review. The matching tee shirt was (is) fantastic. However, the understanding was that I would write an unbiased and honest review. I will get to the really good stuff first. Finally, a vampire story that isn't chock full of "pretty boys" and "beautiful people" all fawning over each other. THIS was a good old "Vampires are evil" story. Toss in Nazis and you don't know which villain to hate more. (I chose Nazis because they were real and very evil.) There is a fantastic dynamic between the "clans" as well as factions within the clans. These were power hungry, heartless monsters. Thank you Mr. Dawson for giving me classic evil.

There is some nice smattering of history in the story and it is woven nicely, although at times it gets a bit "textbook" and can slow the pace of an otherwise entertaining story. There are moments when Mr. Dawson seems to stop telling the story to clarify points that the engaged reader will either know, assume, or (in matters of history) look into on their own if interested.

Now, I have to bring up the editing. It is pretty good. The glaring weakness came in the dialogue. There are some problems. As this is one of my pet peeves, I can not over look it and it is a fairly consistent set of the same errors made throughout.

Based on the story, I would give Occupation 4 stars, the editing gets about a 3.

Whenever I hear that a new vampire novel/movie has been released, I generally cringe and roll my eyes. Most modern takes on the vampire mythos romanticize and pasteurize the concept to the point of absurdity, from the "Twilight" movies, going all the way back to the film version of "Bram Stoker's Dracula". Vampires aren't evil anymore, just misunderstood, and they have tender feelings for introverted human females who ought to be horrified by their lifestyles (yet inexplicably aren't). But in Stoker's novel there were no sparkly eyes, no human/vampire/werewolf lust triangles. Vampires were murdering, blood-sucking demons regarded with pure terror. In "Occupation", author Jeff Dawson takes vampires back to their roots. THESE vampires are to be feared, not hugged. Readers hoping for another "Twilight" will turn away in the first few pages as Dawson unleashes the goriness of vampirism with no regard for weak stomaches. If you find highly detailed accounts of men being dismembered and eaten alive distatseful, you might find yourself skipping a few pages here and there. But there's much more to this story than celebrated gore. Dawson adds some new wrinkles to the myth, such as the anatomy of a fang, and the presence of an unknown bacterial agent in vampire saliva which can enduce a slow, agonizing death when injected into the host. And then the vampire mating scene... well, I won't go into detail; just note that I don't call it "love-making". Dear Bella would not survive a carnal encounter with one of these creatures.

I was immediately intrigued by the concept. Nazis vs. Vampires? How come no one's thought of this before? If vampires are your protagonist, then the villain has to be beyond deplorable by comparison.
