PRIDE can be the downfall of many.
FBI Senior Special Agent Thompson had been trying to catch the paid assassin known as The Lion for many years. Now, as retirement looms, fueled by his sense of being outwitted at every turn by the killer, he takes drastic action, with unforseen deadly consequences.
EXTREME PREJUDICE, a cryptic euphemism substituting the blunt reality of a cold-blooded murder.
Army Intelligence Captain Bridget Mason has stumbled across a devastating secret, one that could easily get her killed. Covert Agent Kris is sent to try to keep her alive while they investigate who is selling out coalition troops in southern Afghanistan. However, Mason has her own way of doing things, yet the covert Special Operator Kris brings a new level of violence to her world.
Strange alliances lead to violent death as they seek to overcome the most formidable enemy they have yet to face.
An old ally resurfaces, yet everyone seems to have their own agenda, which leads to constant conflict where no one can be trusted, as they take on forces more sinister and powerful than ever before when they race to rescue their friends.
This adrenaline-fueled continuation of 'the CULL' series sees Amy and Katie propelled into the very heart of their enemies' domain and bring about events that will change them forever.
"The characters are great, action is fast, and you will have trouble putting the book down!"
"“the CULL - Blood Feud,” spins us deeper into the action as Amy and Katie cut through the mystery and we’re treated to almost more suspense and thrills than we can handle."
"Just as in the first two books, the pace is breathless, and the storyline packed with incident. To my mind, there are four elements that distinguish Gates' thrillers from the norm. First, he employs strong female protagonists - notably Katie and Kay - who are well able to hold their own in a male-dominated, testosterone-fuelled world. Secondly, his vampires are not the cliche-ridden creatures of popular fiction. Thirdly, his deep knowledge of all things techie permeates and informs his stories, and are intrinsic to the action. And finally - and most importantly - his characters' thoughts and actions are riddled with moral ambiguity, as are the institutions they represent (and sometimes betray). The series has already moved off in unpredictable directions, and isn't that the hallmark of a compelling narrative?"
No fangs; no morphing into bats; just adrenaline-pumping fury as two female Federal agents encounter the unimaginable.
2018 READERS’ FAVORITE Honorable Mention Book Award Winner
READERS’ FAVORITE 5 STAR review 2018:
“I applaud Gates for the well thought out premise, plot, and the way he made his vampires unique, deftly using the classic theme to make the series stand out from other bloodsucker stories. The writing style complements the swift pacing, and there are plenty of action filled and suspenseful moments. Solid characterization gives the characters enough depth and believable traits… in essence Bloodline is gripping, fun, and kept me intrigued from start to finish.”
Amy Bree’s reckless actions result in death and her dismissal from the FBI.
A visit from a mysterious priest propels her back into the fray, as she is partnered with an ex-spy, with fearsome computer skills, and tasked to hunt down the serial killer known as the Blood Sucker.
Their quarry is not what they expect.
The body count rises… and the hunters become the hunted!
"A gripping action book, fast-paced and addictive. You're going to have a problem putting it down. Remember to breathe."
"The characters are excellent, the plot is completely unfamiliar therefore filled with thrilling surprise after surprise"
"...once I started I couldn't put it down... one of the best books I have read..."
"Confident, tough as nails and action packed!"
Amy takes on odds far in excess of her ability to handle them. She's completely off-the-rails. This is NOT the Amy Bree you think you know.
For Katie, her most feared enemy is far closer to home than she could have ever imagined. She also learns a secret that will shake her to her very core!
And has SANTA gone over to the enemy?
This and MUCH MORE in this explosive FINALE to the series.
"I’ll sound like a movie trailer but 'the CULL - Blood Kill' is a stunning conclusion to an epic series! More than that, the author blends the supernatural and the contemporary world in such a seamless way that you get lost in the story. Katie and Amy developed over five books are as real to me as friends. Quite an impressive saga."
"Be prepared to get nothing else done! The books grab you and keep you in the edge of your chair. Eric Gates is a master story teller who knows how to build his characters and weave a plot that ensnares you! I was sad to see the series end, but it has certainly gotten me hooked on reading anything by Eric Gates!"
"With 'Blood Kill, Eric J. Gates' 'Cull' series draws to a close. For me, it seems like the end of an era, and I read the final pages with mixed emotions.. Over the last few years, I feel like I have come to know Katie and Amy, Gates' two female protagonists, along with Vatican killing machine Cancelli. But, on the plus side, the author may have saved his best for last (although, frankly, it would be hard to pick a favourite in this series). The usual high-octane action scenes are present, along with the shifting alliances, betrayals, and tricky plot twists - although in 'Blood Kill' the stakes are higher."
"Eric J. Gates is a phenomenal author and a master at his craft! the CULL - Blood Kill is by far the BEST book in this series! Katie and Amy are back and better than ever! This book has well developed characters, mystery, nail biting suspense and intrigue. I was glued to the edge of my seat reading this book, and I didn't want it to end."
Katie is searching for answers; a new ally may help in her quest.
Amy finds herself taking on a powerful adversary without the help of her partner.
An old nemesis returns in an unforseen twist in this thrilling continuation of‘the CULL - Bloodline’.
Zoe Davis, late-thirties, bookstore owner, now living with a new family in Albuquerque, NM.
