Already Dead - Charlie Huston

Already Dead is a vampire novel. Huston has a very unique outlook on vampires. It's different from any of the current popular novels I've read and certainly isn't the traditional Transylvania style vampire story. Huston is a very gritty story teller. He pulls no punches, so if you're put off by brutal or gory this is not the author for you. However, he tells a story that pulls you in and keeps you reading if you give him a chance.

Joe Pitt is Huston's vampire protagonist. Joe's walking a tightrope between various vampire factions to maintain his independence. Meanwhile he's killing zombies, trying to rescue missing girls, and fighting to keep his girlfriend. He has his hands full. Very highly recommended.
