When I had about 50 pages left to read it was obvious that the human race was going to be finished off, for good. And then, "poof", magical vampires appear who then go on to save the day. Deus ex machina, indeed!
Note to David: If I wanted a vampire book, I would have bought one! I expected a well-crafted military SF novel, and instead got some apocalyptic fantasy dreck.
I'd like my money back. Furthermore, I will not be in a big hurry to buy another Weber, at least not without checking with somebody who has already read it.
But no, instead we get ... Vampires?
Deus ex machina indeed.
