Advance copies mailed out for review: Heavy focus on Entertainment sites

V-Wars is the dirty red transfusion the anemic vampire genre desperately needs." -Joe Hill, author of Locke & Key and NOS4A2

“Johnathan Maberry delivers a fresh take on one of my favorite genres. I couldn’t turn the pages fast enough. This is a great read!” -Reginald Hudlin, producer, screenwriter, director, and writer of Black Panther

“Breathtaking story. A stunning arc. High thinking, high stakes. There is a thread, woven within these gorgeous images, that builds and builds until you’re ready to take part in the war yourself. Maberry juggles complexity of character with fluid action like nobody else.” -Josh Malerman, author of Bird Box
