The United States Vampire Service is the pseudonym for a secret government contractor that exterminates vampires. For generations, this brotherhood has put their lives on the line to keep the general populace safe and unaware of the potential dangers that imperil them every day. When an outbreak of undead in Alabama threatens to become an epidemic, Chief Othniel O’Connor and his fistful of men have to stop it before more innocent lives are lost. The discovery of a strange, ancient Viking chamber compounds the problem, and the USVS is forced to reach out for help, only to discover that sometimes vampires aren’t the most malevolent force that must be defended against. This is a story about a fellowship of fighters and friends- of their loyalty, sacrifice, and determination to battle for good in the face of evil. With its combination of action-adventure, military fiction, and sci-fi, Vikings, Vampires, and Mailmen is a story that will appeal to a multitude of readers.

The cast of characters are each personally flawed, each with their own vices, making them non-super heros and much more believable.
The thought and research by the author has created a story with many layers and twists that keep the reader thinking, scratching ones head and excited to turn to the next page.
I was pleased to find that this effort by Glennon was not just another "teen love story" Vampire novel, but he has brought the undead back to what they are, monsters.
All in all, an exceptional first effort for a talented young author, with a promising future.
The first person narrative allowed me to relate to the character and experience his emotions as he experienced them himself. I found myself getting angry when Chief did and that is not something that happens often while reading. It takes a lot for an author to pull me in enough to incite rage. Kevin Glennon did just that. What's even harder is to get me to laugh. Glennon did that, too.
The characters in the story go through stuff. Things happen to them and make them appear more human creating an immediate relationship between the character and the reader. The book has happy moments, sad moments and downright horrifying moments but when you're finished, you'll want more. That's a promise. If you haven't read it yet, do it. You won't be disappointed.
While also being thoughtful, touching and genuinely heart breaking, it is well rounded, well developed and well written first novel from an author who delivers laugh out loud moments from characters you'll love, and love to hate.
BRING ON THE SEQUEL!!!
I already can't wait for a sequel!!!
