The Peacekeeper series takes an eerie turn with this latest installment. It begins with a detachment of over 30 peacekeepers being assaulted by their deadliest opponents to date, who seem to have supernatural powers! Are they vampires? Are their animal assistants werewolves? The answers to these lead the peacekeepers to discover a huge cult that have been secretly stealing and killing citizens, for their blood, naturally.
The action is great, and the plot moves steadily forward with constant challenges. It was nice to see the heroes in real danger, and the story takes some unusual twists. It culminates in one of the best action hand-to-hand fight sequences yet.
This is definitely the best novel in the series, and is the type of book that would make a terrific movie.
