the CULL - Bloodline $2.99
Goodreads Book of the Month October 2018!
A new, fast-paced and highly original take on vampire lore.
the CULL - Bloodstone $4.99 to buy
Two new enemies emerge as the relationship between Amy and the ‘new' Katie evolves in unexpected ways.
"Like it's predecessor, 'Bloodstone' is a page-turner, and contains obvious thriller elements, but it also takes in components of vampirism (in its broadest sense - none of your sparkly 'Twilight' vampires here), technological geekery and an unusually deep psychological profiling of the main characters. It also oozes with a delicious moral ambiguity as unlikely alliances form and dissolve. It is also good to see the key players are strong females, fighting their way through a man's world of prejudice and violence - and remaining firmly female while not straying into patronising areas of 'girliness'. No cop-out love stories or romance interest here, just excitement from page one."
"Katie and Amy are back in “CULL – Bloodstone,” by Eric J. Gates, and the trouble is intense. What I really like about this author is the way he shoves you face first into the story and makes it impossible for you to stop reading. “Amy, Amy. For God’s sake! Wake up! Wake up! We’re under attack! AMY!” Wildly exhausting and exhilarating at the same time.I loved the first, this is even better, I can’t wait for the next one."
"Wow! You don't normally see the second book even better than the first, but Eric J. Gates did! Great stuff!!! Great twists and turns! Action you did not expect! You want more!"
the CULL - Blood Feud $4.99 to buy
Amy and Katie discover the startling truth of who is behind the attacks and decide to go on the offensive.
the CULL - Blood Demon $4.99 to buy
Katie and the team take on an ancient preternatural threat that far exceeds their own abilities while seeking to prove one of them is not a murderer; Amy is assigned a case which lies squarely in Katie's area of expertise but has to tackle it alone. A treacherous new conspiracy surfaces with deadly consequences.
"Blood Demon captures all the elements of a masterfully-written book. Believable, complex characters (I love Katie and Amy, missed them being apart in this book) that continue to grow and evolve, rapid, action-packed pacing, a complex tightly-woven plot that keeps you guessing until the very end and clear and crisp writing that makes reading a breeze and keeps the pages turning late into the night. The depth and dimension of this author's work is extraordinary and the forces of good and evil are philosophical underpinnings that few writers incorporate."
"They keep getting better! “The CULL - Blood Demon” by Eric J. Gates is the best of a great series. The author is a master at weaving a tale packed with suspense, intrigue and Katie and Amy are in well over their heads in this one. It’s impossible not to keep turning the pages in this action thriller which takes on the reader on a wild ride that pushes the limits, touches the supernatural and surprises at every turn."
"Eric Gates' 'Cull' saga continues with 'Blood Demon', and all the elements we have come to expect from this series are present: shifting alliances, betrayals, high-tech wizardry, and a satisfactorily high body count. Moral ambiguity permeates the action-soaked pages, and black-and-white ethics are put to the sword. I enjoy books where you can't be entirely sure who the good guys are, and this one fits the mould. We can, however, be sure who the good girls are, as the physically-transformed Katie and the emotionally-transformed Amy promulgate their own particular form of female chaos across a dangerous and violent landscape."
the CULL - Blood Kill $0.00 $4.99 to buy
Katie goes through a change that could cost her her life!
