Vampires have risen in eastern Europe and spread until all of Eurasia was under their control. The next step was, naturally, the east coast of the United States. They systematically took over, turning political and religious leaders and killing others, until the only humans left are in hiding or working for the vampires. At least, most are. An Orthodox rabbi, a Catholic priest and warrior nun, and an atheist team up in New Jersey to fight the vampires and take back their country.
This book was quite refreshing, being a recent novel that portrays vampires as the bad guys once again. The author wrote it on the premise that all the vampire lore was true - sunlight, crucifixes, garlic, the whole deal. He also looks at religion in regards to vampirism and other religions or lack thereof. The only thing i found a bit hard to accept was what happened to Father Joe near the end, but i won't spoil that for you. I wholeheartedly recommend this to any horror fans or people who enjoy zombie apocalypse stories, but some other people might not enjoy it so much, because of the author's aversion to "the tortured, romantic aesthetes who have been passing lately for vampires" (his words, not mine). I liked this book a lot.
