I enjoyed the first book, so I'm up for a continuation.

Maybe werewolves will show up to act as shock trooops. (Stirring up trouble, you say? Moi?)

I can see that ol' Vlad arrives over the Shongairi and starts to open fire, only to be attacked by Shongairi Vampires.

So for a few centuries the spacelanes are filled with ships full of warring vampires

It is bad news.
It means that he won't write something else.
Out Of The Dark is the least admired of all his books.
This is Very Bad News!

Oh come on now. We all have our preferences. I know you like the multiverse series and would love to see another. I wouldn't. But if he writes it (and, of course, if Linda recovers enough to do her part), I'll probably read it anyway.

It's not the end of the world, man. And even if it was, whining about it AFTER he's signed up for the book doesn't exactly do much good, does it? The decision is made, the opinion of one nobody on the forum (mine OR yours) doesn't mean jack squat anymore.

Ah, but does one opinion if mean anyless? :-)

In fairness I never have been able to finish any of the Multiverse books. I must have started the thing about 100 times seems like. For some reason I have never been able to read it. Which is shocking as I can read all his others at least once a year including OoD. Once I bought it had a hard time buying it because I dislike TOR's old e-book policies so much and all the negative hoopla araound its release.

Matter of fact I just purchased the audio version of and am listening to it as I Type. <shrug>

Different strokes differ folks and all that.

Enjoy,

I won't be reading this one, thank you. I like my science fiction to be SCIENCE fiction. I don't care how far you have to stretch the edges to make it fit, but give a science explanation. Having a twilight dawn experience to finish (up to that point) an outstanding book about cultural disconnects and asymetric warfare really just ruined the whole experience. I did NOT find the paperback cover to be enlightening enough and because of my fondness for Mr Weber's science fiction - I didn't read the back anyway until in my confusion at the appearance of a fantasy character I did a quick check. I have no problem with reading fantasy and fantasy characters, but let's keep the genres separate. There were (in the scope of the book) at least a half dozen or more possible science fiction routes that could have been taken to finish this book, but why Mr Weber would imagine that a reader that has identified with the struggles and accomplishments of multiple military characters to defend humanity would want a "vampire?" to suddenly be mankinds salvation from the aliens is just beyond me. As others have written the biggest disappointment is the "cute" way that he purposely sprang the "surprise" ending on the readers without backstory or development aka Mr Shyamalan. In this I am showing my regard for Mr Weber as I don't believe that he would use such a ploy to finish a story he was "stuck" on just to satisfy a deadline with a publisher.
In the end though the story was great until Vlad the Impaler becomes the solution and then it stunk, overall ruined the whole storyline and guaranteed itself on my do not read list for further developments.

Just because its a vampire doesn't mean that they don't have science involved somehow, maybe they are an envolved species of human, who knows
