Earth Thirst

Another dystopia....a bit on the heavy side though. Presenting Earth Thirst by Mark Teppo.

Here is the summary of the book:

The Earth is dying. Humanity—over-breeding, over-consuming—is destroying the very planet they call home. Multinational corporations despoil the environment, market genetically modified crops to control the food supply, and use their wealth and influence and private armies to crush anything, and anyone, that gets in the way of their profits. Nothing human can stop them. But something unhuman might. Once they did not fear the sun. Once they could breathe the air and sleep where they chose. But now they can rest only within the uncontaminated soil of Mother Earth—and the time has come for them to fight back against the ruthless corporations that threaten their immortal existence. They are the last guardians of paradise, more than human but less than angels. They call themselves the Arcadians.

So, vampires are protectors of a green that is interesting. Filled with thrillers analogies and scenarios. So, Silas & his group of vampires are the super spies here. Tracking and putting a stop to billionaire project that can somehow the planet. The action was pretty interesting too......quite thrilling but still I got bored just at the start.

Every element in this book felt over the top. The back story with Arcadia. The different form of vampires, who can walk in the sun, possess untold amount of money in the bank and are armed to the teeth with military style advanced weapons system. With such over the top things it actually became impossible to make a connection with Silas & the group and that is saying something. Good thriller though!

"Vampires as the eco-activists.......wouldn't recommend but you can check it if you want. Quite thrilling though"
