This is one of the best horror novels I have read in a long while. Coming from Mike Mignola (Hellboy) and Christopher Golden (BtVS), I had high expectations, and they were totally fulfilled. On one level, it's a simple 'fighting evil' story. The book is made up of 5 stories: the present and 4 narratives of fighting monsters in the past. Each of the narrators is uniquely interesting as he retells the horrors he's witnessed. On a deeper level, the book explores how a hero can become a darker monster than the evil they're fighting. It also alludes to a greater evil that spawns all lesser demons and representations of evil in the world. It's a fascinating alternate history of the World War I era. It's also an allusion to the Tin Soldier children's story. I highly recommend this book to anyone who loves a good horror story. It's about vampires, but doesn't focus on everything you know about vampires. These are not vamps as you've likely ever experienced them in a story before.
