This is not a vampire story in the traditional sense. It is a story about a vampire who wakes up to find that his food supply (humans) have largely bean replaced with the walking dead. The hunter must now become the protector, and the struggle that Coburn (the vampire) has with this change in his lifestyle plays out awesomely across the two Double Dead books (both of which you should read).
Coburn and his flock run into a range of awesome post apocalyptic characters, and battle it out with zombies and super zombies (the origins of which you learn about early on in book one).
[Warning: There are some minor spoilers for the previous novel in the series, Double Dead.]
As the story opens, Coburn and Gil are in San Francisco, and in the middle of a zombie-attack. Coburn has been injured in the ambush, so our pair of heroes decide to split up - Gil is supposed to head to "the lab" while Coburn seeks out (relatively) fresh blood to heal his wounds. Both find their plans disrupted by more traps and hazards, not to mention awkward and potentially-deadly run-ins with the locals, living and undead.
I really love the way Wendig writes characters: they are very real and even endearing in their way, never feeling contrived and always displaying a slight twist to standard character types and tropes. Even Coburn, the vampire who thinks of humans as little more than happy meals on legs, feels real. A real a$$hole, true, but real nonetheless. That being said, the events at the end of Double Dead have had a lasting, positive impact on his character. He's less critical of humans, for a start, and his outlook on life is just a shade sunnier (perhaps a result of his newfound ability to walk in the sun...).
"Creampuff" remains a delightfully silly name for the pet of a vampire, even if he is a rat terrier. He also provides some of the more amusing moments in the novel. As with all of his characters, Wendig has imbued the dog with a lot of personality.
Kayla's influence on Coburn is pretty strong and, at times, manages to soften the vampire.Read more ›
And I want to know what the secret Gil shared with Coborn really means for to the entire series.
The thing i liked most was that this fills out the story and explains a little about Coburn's origins. I'm sad that it wasn't longer, but it was fulfilling, creepy, and darkly humourous--a perfect cookie-sized serving of Wendig.
Anyone who wants to write a vampire series should pick this and its big brother up for sure.
Good summer read.
