War is hell
It's the 1940's, and our world is at war. From Imperial Japan to Nazi Germany, rivers of blood have been spilled. But that will be nothing compared to the ocean of horror the Axis powers will unleash if they succeed in harnessing the ultimate weapon... vampires!
On an island near Japan, a ferocious new strain of vampire could lead to a kamikaze strike against all humankind. And in a castle in Eastern Europe, a vampiric master race is massing to create a Reich of their own.
Now vampires and vampire hunters alike are caught in the crossfire -- and Skinner Sweet, the first American vampire, is on the front lines. Both he and an underground army of his deadliest enemies must work to defeat the Axis/undead alliance.
Because in the shadow of the swastika and the fire of the rising sun, even American vampires can burn...
