Description

"E.E. Knight has proven a master of his craft. His prose is controlled but interesting, and his characters are fully formed and come to life. * In his latest Vampire Earth novel, the national bestselling author tells a tale about David Valentine's fellow freedom fighter Ahn-Kha when he was imprisoned and forced into hard labor by the Kurians and the rebellion he led against them "
Captured and sold to the Kurian allied Maynes Conglomerate, to work as a slave in the coal mines of Appalachia, Ahn-Kha is angered and appalled by the dangerous working conditions, and the brutal treatment inflicted upon his fellow miners. When a protest against shortages is deliberately and bloodily suppressed, Ahn-Kha sets himself against the ruling Maynes family and sets out on a trail of vengeance through the Coal Country.
Finally, the people of the Coal Country are driven to the breaking point and they now have a leader, a powerful and battle-hardened leader, determined to forge them into an army that will wage guerrilla warfare against the Maynes family and their Kurian masters and free the Appalachians from their tyranny
