Really liked this one, although the ending seemed abrupt.  Never know how much of my enjoyment is based on Will Patton's outstanding narration though...

Containment, by Christian Cantrell

Title:. Containment
Author: Christian Cantrell
Borrowed from a friend
Started: 5/15/2017
Finished: 5/23/2017

A decent idea for a novel but not executed well.  Read like an unpolished first novel, which it may be.

Way too melodramatic for me.  Really struggled with finishing this one -- not a book for me. No more vampires.
