Terrific read

I just discovered E.E. Knight with this book. I'd noticed his novels on the bookstore shelves before but I thought this was just another 'me too' vampire series. You know the ones. They try to be to hip and clever and kind of all read alike. Not this. The world that Knight builds is consistent, peopled with complex characters and the alien invasion premise is original and thought through.

While there's plenty of action the story is basically character driven. David Valentine is a great hero. He's a full and believable person. He's tough but gets results mostly because he works harder and pays more attention.

The story is well plotted and the bad guys (Kurians) are truly evil. Secondary characters are fleshed out and act from credible motives. They're not just cardboard pieces thrown in to move the plot.

When I finished this book I immediately hit the library to reserve the first books in the series. It compares favorably with any SF series in active publication.
