He lives to kill monsters. He keeps his city safe. And his silver hollow-points and back-from-the-dead abilities help him take out any kind of supernatural threat. But now an immortal evil has this bad-ass bounty hunter dead in its sights. . .
Ever since a monster murdered his family, Deacon Chalk hunts any creature that preys on the innocent. So when a pretty vampire girl "hires" him to eliminate a fellow slayer, Deacon goes to warn him--and barely escapes a vampire ambush. Now he's got a way-inexperienced newbie hunter to protect and everything from bloodsuckers to cursed immortals on his trail. There's also a malevolent force controlling the living and the undead, hellbent on turning Deacon's greatest loss into the one weapon that could destroy him. . .

This ain't your romantic vampire novel. This is exactly what the title says it is...it is blood and bullets. And I loved every word in the story. Theres a whole lot of gore, but a gal can't read romance all the time, right?
Meet Deacon Chalk, Bounty Hunter and he kills Vampires. Monsters as he calls and know them only to be. The vampires in his world are evil. Vampires killed his family and he wants them all dead.
This story was like reading a screen play for a movie. It was fast paced and the action started at the beginning all the way to the end! A bounty has been placed on Deacon's head and he uses what he does best to find out who and why. There is a great supporting cast here as well and Mr Tuck leaves out no details. Everything and everyone in this story is explained to the T, you are never left guessing...hell, Deacon won't let you. And his take in how vampires were created...just mind blowing. You have to get this book, trust me, it will be worth it.
I will definitely be reading more of Deacon Chalk and more books from this author. He has opened up a whole new world to me and I LIKE IT!
