Overview (taken from B&N)

In the vein of Jonathan Maberry and The Walking Dead—when a new drug starts turning users into vampires, it’s open season on the living

Fear grips London as dozens of people die after taking a sinister new drug called Skarlet. But that's only the beginning. Forty-eight hours later, the dead partiers wake up and begin butchering the living for their blood. Soon, London gives a name to its terror: Vampires.

Jake Lawton, bitter and betrayed after the Iraq War, find himself fighting another battle, this time against the growing army of immortal hunters and their human cohorts. Lawton joins forces with the journalist who brought about his downfall and the dealer tricked into distributing the drug. Together they take on the spineless authorities, the ruthless cohorts, and the hungry dead. But the vampire plague unleashed in London is nothing compared to what lurks beneath the streets. Waiting to be fed . . . Waiting to be resurrected . . . Waiting to reign again over a city of human slaves.

    1. The creepier the better for me. I used to read mostly all Thriller/horror until I discovered the awesomeness of YA. I still have a huge passion for creep-tastic books.

  12. Okay, you are always scaring me with those creepy covers. I guess scary covers are one of those things that draw in some people and make others (like me) want to hide under the bed...
