Written By:E E Knight - 2007

  • Valentine's Resolve - E E Knight cover

Synopsis

Welcome to the year 2075. Earth is under new management.

Possessed of an unnatural and legendary hunger, the Reapers have come to Earth to establish a New Order built on the harvesting of enslaved human souls. They rule the planet. They thrive on the scent of fear. And if it is night, as sure as darkness, they will come.

It has been three years since David Valentine's forced exile from his friends in the war against the Kurians. Brought back into the fold by his old teacher, Duvalier, Valentine discovers that the Lifeweavers, Earth's allies in conflict, have all but vanished. Without their aid, mankind cannot possibly stand against the Reapers and other life-forms the Kurians use to subjugate the planet.

Many of the Lifeweavers are held captive by the powerful Kurian known as the Seattle overlord. To free them, Valentine must trek across the Cascades and convince the marshal, a legendary resistance fighter with a grudge against the Seattle Kurian, to join his cause. But the marshal is something of an overlord himself, ruling over his men with an iron fist... and giving Valentine a new enemy to fight.

Blurb

"Another winning installment of horror and breathless battles." —Science Fiction Weekly

"Terrifically entertaining." —Publishers Weekly

"A compelling tale." —Alternative Worlds

"Knight flavors action with humor in [Valentine's Resolve]... Classic apocalyptic SF on a grand scale is always scary, but Knight makes it terrifically entertaining as well." —Publishers Weekly

"Knight has managed to write a Book Six that keeps fans thirsting for more in the series... [He] maintains a tight point of view, controls scene transitions beautifully, and never wavers in tone. His main character, David Valentine, keeps readers coming back for more." —Science Fiction Weekly

"E. E. Knight brings excitement and interests to his Vampire Earth series... [David] is an extraordinary character who turns Vampire Earth war into a compelling tale." —Alternative Worlds

"Knight manages something that is not always a given in an extended series: He's kept it fresh and engaging, not only by providing a new story line for each episode, but by changing locales and supporting cast... Knight maintains a high level of interest. He's a good, strong writer with a definite gift for building character and milieu without beating you over the head with it, and he never lets it get in the way of the story. Yes, this one is certainly worth the time—and it looks like all the preceding book are, as well." —The Green Man Review

"Knight mixes bits of military SF, survivalist fiction, the alien invasion story, and other elements including more than a mild dose of horror... I'm entertained following [Valentine's] adventures, and it's nice to have some evil vampires, even if they do come from another planet." —Don D'Ammassa
