I was lucky enough to get invited to the Castle Dracula group on Goodreads to read the ARC of The Day Guard by Graeme Rodaughan. The Day Guard is the 4th book in The Metaframe War that is a series about the secret society of vampires ruling the world and underground fighting groups trying to destroy vampires and save humankind. Yeah, it’s badass! The vampires in this series are ruthless, powerful and have amazing abilities to do whatever the they want! The underground fighting groups are the Order of Thoth and the Red Empire. Each group is trying to destroy the vampires, but they go about it in different ways and are enemies to each other. Order of Thoth tends to be more ethical, kill vampires and still try and save humankind. The Red Empire just wants to destroy vampires regardless of whether a million humans get caught up in the death and destruction. The Day Guard starts off with the King of the Vampire Dominion, Cornelius Crane putting together the final plans to destroy the Order of Thoth and the Red Empire, once and for all. He has put together a special force, the Day Guard that has super powers like a vampire and can be absolutely controlled. Rodaughan takes this 4th book in the series in completely new directions by introducing the reader to a new species (Hell yes!) and a new vampire that could destroy or equal Crane's power. I think this is my favorite direction so far in this series with this new vampire. I LOVED both new directions regarding this series and I’m looking forward to seeing where Rodaughan will take us! The gore, vampires and fighting scenes in this series are fantastic! I love the vampires more then the underground fighting groups and I hope I will come to enjoy those characters more in time. I think I love all of the brutality, blackmailing and plotting of the vampires. It's just so well done in the series. I always did love a good villain more then a mediocre hero and it seems to me that Rodaughan has really done a great job on the villains in this series! My only complaint with The Day Guard is the Order of Thoth feels a bit YA to me at times with Anton, Peter, Li and Chiara. I’m not crazy about this direction and hope they grow up a bit more in the upcoming books. Anton needs to become the leader that I know he can be but without moodiness and self-absorption. I’m really looking forward to The Crane War and all the great directions Rodaughan can take this series!! Recommended to vampire fans, horror lovers and anyone that loves a good battle between good vs evil!

    What better way to come out of a reading slump, then to jump in with both feet in the fourth installment of the Metaframe War "The Day Guard"!

Suspicions arise within the ranks of the vampires and as the Minovar team tries to recoup their losses, the book literally "ramps" up with conpiracies and action. The conspiracy theory delves way down deep into the Metaframe bringing Cornelius Crane and his general, Chloe Armitage to a whole new level of playing a cat and mouse game of backstabbing deception. Alas that is not the only deception within the War as the Minovar team has some unstablity among their ranks. The team seems to be keeping an eye out for each other and it makes for an interesting suspenseful read as the book ramps up a notch. I loved the humor and banter amoung the Minovar team members (Peter, Chiara, Anton, and Li) as it gives the book a little more realistic feel as the team grows together through this series. New characters are introduced in the Day Guard including new vampire soldiers that are super powerful which gives the book more flavor and some more path connections that leads toward future books. There are lots of futuristic weaponery abounding in this book along with ancient weapons like swords and katanas which makes the pages come alive with slicing, dicing, and explosions. The action jumps in this book with swords slashing at lightning speed and bloody gore flying off the pages makes the Day Guard an action packed rocking vampire thriller. The author, Graeme Rodaughn, has turned the word "vampire" into more than just blood sucking vamps as with this series of books, the word "vampire" has taken on a whole new meaning. It is like an adrenaline kick of Vampires on steroids combined with an energy drink boost that makes the vampires powered up invincible! Looking forward to the next book in this series "The Crane War" to see what happens next and to continue on with this vampire action war! Giving this book five stars for keeping me awake as if I had swallowed a caffeine energy drink! My thanks to Graeme for an advanced copy of The Day Guard for the ARC read at the Castle Dracula group as it was one hell of a "ramp" ride!

    I would like to thank the author, Graeme Rodaughan, for providing me with an ARC of The Day Guard. Also, thanks to another buddy read with my fellow vampire loving crew at Castle Dracula. The Day Guard is Graeme Rodaughan's 4th book in The Metaframe War series. This is quickly becoming one of my favorite ongoing series. Graeme continues to build upon the previous books and add new elements along the way that make the story hard to predict and even harder to put down.

Also, thanks to another buddy read with my fellow vampire loving crew at Castle Dracula. The Day Guard is Graeme Rodaughan's 4th book in The Metaframe War series. This is quickly becoming one of my favorite ongoing series. Graeme continues to build upon the previous books and add new elements along the way that make the story hard to predict and even harder to put down. As with the previous books, The Day Guard picks up right after the end of book 3. The Mirovar force team are licking their wounds (view spoiler)[and grieving for their losses (hide spoiler)] after their battle with Chloe Armitage and her allies. Now, they have to find a way back to the states undetected, and without their usual resources. Cornelius Crane is closing in on finalizing his Day Guard program and adding some new weapons to his arsenal. All the while, Vampire general Chloe Armitage's plans all seam to be working out, but the lies and hidden agendas may be about to catch up with her. "Yes there would be sacrifices, terrible sacrifices, but the tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants." This book is a little more toned down from the pulse pounding non-stop action of book 3. We are back to more of the double dealing, scheming, and back stabbing that make these books so engaging to me. That is not to say there isn't action in this book, because you won't be disappointed in that area either. There is plenty of head rolling, sword swinging, arterial fluid flowing fun to be had here. Especially, the grand finale! As mentioned above, Graeme added some new elements to this book. By elements, I mean some unexpected players to the game that is The Metaframe War. They add some very interesting opportunities for this series, and I am itching to see how they are going to effect upcoming events. As great as Graeme is at the action scenes, he is equally good at weaving the storylines to come up with some unforeseen outcomes. I have no idea how this is going to play out with so many different agendas, but I know it's going to be one hell of an exciting ride. "This war can claim everything your willing to give and more, and I suspect your biggest sacrifices are still in front of you." Graeme has done it again with The Day Guard. This is another top notch addition to this series, and I will no doubt be messaging Graeme on a regular basis to get release updates on the next book, The Crane War. This series has it all; secret societies, vampires and other dark creatures, action aplenty, and more schemes than a busy day on Wall Street. Seriously, if you haven't started reading this series, you are missing out. 4.75 stars *****

The characters we've grown to know from previous installments are here, plus a few exciting new ones as well. The fast-paced action that made the first three books so much fun continues in this one too. This whole series has been one continuous thrill ride, with lots of battle scenes and fighting galore with weapons of all types. True excitement is felt as the story progresses with twists and turns, both expected and unexpected. Specifically in this book, I felt like lots of openings for future plot lines were introduced, which increases my enthusiasm for future installments. If my review sounds a bit on the vague side, it's because I really don't want to spoil anybody's enjoyment of these books (which is the way I've been able to enjoy them). For me, this is one of the best vampire series going right now. If you like action and vampires with real teeth (no soft vampire romance here, for sure), then you need to give this series a shot.

    Welcome to the Metaframe War Book Four: New Plans & Ancient Enemies. Whatever you thought was going to happen, guess again! Cornelius Crane is back in focus. No longer blinded by ego, Crane is gathering forces, trusting no one, and making moves. Chloe Armitage, my favorite vampire, has been caught out by the new Crane. But Chloe has a mind as flexible and dangerous as her body, set backs are stepping stones. Louise Wesson, my favorite character, is working alone to destroy the Vampire Dominion Welcome to the Metaframe War Book Four: New Plans & Ancient Enemies. Whatever you thought was going to happen, guess again! Cornelius Crane is back in focus. No longer blinded by ego, Crane is gathering forces, trusting no one, and making moves. Chloe Armitage, my favorite vampire, has been caught out by the new Crane. But Chloe has a mind as flexible and dangerous as her body, set backs are stepping stones. Louise Wesson, my favorite character, is working alone to destroy the Vampire Dominion from the inside out. With battlefield bravery, iron will, and the patience of a mountain, she is Crane’s most dangerous adversary. Anita Chang, from the Australian Order of Thoth, has the potential to be a player or a spin-off series. Either could be good! And now what I liked less... The Power Rangers. I could discuss the teenage component of this book individually or I could just hit on Anton, who is the book’s most important character. Just ask him. My revenge is more important than your revenge. - Anton That’s really all you need to know about this self-centered moody teenager. Overall, I would give this chapter of Metaframe a 4.5

    The Day Guard is the fourth book I’ve read by Graeme Rodaughan, and the second this year. A thorough craftsman, Graeme’s dedication to writing shines through on each of his pages. Let’s start with what worked for me in this book. As with his previous efforts, Graeme weaved a suspenseful, and action-packed story rich with intrigue. And, to my eyes, this is where the author shines the brightest. His grasp of intrigue, and how to layer it throughout a plot, is what drives The Metaframe series.

And, to my eyes, this is where the author shines the brightest. His grasp of intrigue, and how to layer it throughout a plot, is what drives The Metaframe series. It’s what keeps bringing me back for more – I need to know how this all ends!! And the intrigue blends seamlessly with his use of, what I will term, high concept artifacts. Similar to how the quest for the Holy Grail propelled The Da Vinci Code along, Graeme’s story is flush with mythical artifacts that add to the characters motivations without impeding the flow of the story. Who will wind up with them in their hands? Who will grasp ultimate power? Like any great storyteller, Graeme keeps you turning the pages to find out more. And speaking of characters, this book is chock full of some amazing in-depth characters. Want an antagonist who could also be protagonist – meet Chloe Armitage. She’s been badass since A Subtle Agency, but Graeme takes her up a notch in this one. Or how about double dealing characters playing both sides – take your pick of the many featured here (including the reveal of The Raven!). No book is perfect though, so let’s go over what didn’t work for me here. As I mentioned, the book is chock full of characters. And I do mean chock full. There are a lot of different people running through these pages and, at times it can get overwhelming trying to keep them all straight. The numerous POVs featured throughout also create a situation whereby it can feel like the main characters become lost. This is an issue I mentioned in previous reviews as well, and it continues to serve as a drawback throughout this volume. Also, the heavy amount of exposition really slowed the pace of the story for me. As a thumbnail, I would guess at an 80/20 split between exposition and narrative. This leads to pages where, as a reader, I’m shown nothing but told a lot. As an aside, I did find the copious amounts of blood and graphic violence to be over the top at times. However, given the genre and subject matter, I wouldn’t hold it against the book in any way. Just be warned before you embark upon the read. Overall this is another strong installment in the series and the best compliment I can afford it, is I will be reading the next book when it is released. As I said, I need to know how this all ends!!

Buddy Reads at Castle Dracula group.*** I had been waiting for this title for a long time. From the first rumors, this fourth installment of the series promised to be an adventure as good as the previous ones, or even better. And so it was. But let's go in order. The story picks up where the previous book had ended, with the Mirovar team fleeing to the United States, with limited resources available and forced to put aside the pain for the losses suffered in the last battle against Chloe Armitage. At the same time, Cornelius Crane completed the ‘Day Guard project’ and now has super-soldiers at his disposal to use in daytime attacks. Even in this book, we see the great ability of the author to create new plotlines and develop them in detail, keeping the reader glued to the pages, eager for details. The subplots in this story are indeed many and touch all the actors seen till now: The Order of Toth, The Red Empire, The Vampire Dominion. At the same time Graeme Rodaughan brings in this story new characters and new elements (view spoiler)[ for example, the chameleons and the vampire ninja created by Mekra's blood (hide spoiler)] , to the delight of its readers. My only regret is that the latter are barely introduced, I guess they will be developed more in the next book. About characters, however, there are many new entry. We meet other teams belonging to the Order, friends and enemies and we receive some more information on the Metaframe and the facts involving Arthur Slayne years before. Among all, certainly a top-notch place is played by Chloe Armitage, a villain, but definitely a high-level, able to impress the reader for the intelligence, the lack of scruples, but also the remarkable ability to manage, apparently very easily, a game of deception and manipulation. Certainly it’s not a boring story, there is plenty of adrenaline, both from the point of view of fighting, always well cared for, with breathtaking action scenes, but also for the detailed procedures and technological resources described. At this point, I look forward to the next book, "The Crane War", to see how the various sub-plots will continue.

You know what I hate about series that are in progress? Having to wait for the next book! This continued on from where it left off in book #3 and all the plot points that brought about, betrayal, death, and of course world domination. The first half focuses more on the vampires story with lots of Chloe and even a bit of Crane which is nice to see, the Order still gets a look in and has some important moments such as the Red Empire spy and Anton coming together but don't expect any big action from the Order early on. The prologue is a nice change too introducing a new dynamic to the story we've not seen previously and that gets further page time throughout the book. I liked that this was a new concept and not just introducing some form of were creature like many other UF series do. The second half is much more about the Order and we get to see how fragile a group they appear to be both in terms of conflicting ideologies and numbers compared to the Red Empire and the Vampire Dominion. There's lot's of Graeme's usual actions scenes which are fast paced and fun to read. Wesson's viewpoint is also developed a lot more in this book and it's quite a fun one as in previous books she's not really been a likeable character but now we are presented with her as a mole working from within the Vampire Dominion for her own ends and on humanity's side. She doesn't have the full picture of the whole Metaframe War but she does know the vampires are bad and wants to take them out. She doesn't enjoy killing whether it's test subjects for the Day Guard or the Order of Thoth but she's willing to do what it takes, much like Anton really, to reach her goals. Overall a good episode in the series that resolves some issues but raises a whole lot of new plot points to bring up in future volumes. Can't wait for the Crane War now!

    Rodaughan’s ambitious nine-book series continues with The Day Guard. In this installment of the series we are introduced to a new threat; the Chameleons, a sort of combination Predator and snake-man (cf. Robert E. Howard’s “The Shadow Kingdom”). Chameleons and vampires are arch enemies, murdering each other for thousands of years. But then Chloe, our vampire heroine, runs into a pack of Chameleons for the first time in history and she’s like, “Wanna team up?” And they’re like “Sure, whatever.” T Rodaughan’s ambitious nine-book series continues with The Day Guard. In this installment of the series we are introduced to a new threat; the Chameleons, a sort of combination Predator and snake-man (cf. Robert E. Howard’s “The Shadow Kingdom”). Chameleons and vampires are arch enemies, murdering each other for thousands of years. But then Chloe, our vampire heroine, runs into a pack of Chameleons for the first time in history and she’s like, “Wanna team up?” And they’re like “Sure, whatever.” Then they walk away, allies. Well, wasn’t that easy? I do like the Chameleons, if for no more reason than Rodaughan didn’t fall back on werewolves as a traditional antagonist for the vampires. The People speak, in a simple, three-clause structure that is almost poetic. The imprisoned vampire-queen Mekra tells Crane, “my mind has grown wings.” In other words, she’s developed psychic powers that allow her to be a threat even though she’s been locked in a tomb for a thousand years. I don’t think that’s a wise thing to tell the guy who’s holding you prisoner. But the action is great, especially towards the end when all the factions seem to come together. Utter chaos ensues with each side gaining and losing something. If Rodaughan can writing anything, it’s action scenes. Overall, the writing is very good, concise, dramatic but never flowery. That said, there are missing or superfluous commas and semicolons throughout and Rodaughan falls back on the passive voice now and then. There’s also what I suspect are Austalianisms creeping in. In America, ladders have rungs, not rails. This is one of the best books in the series so far. I give it about four and a half stars.

If you're reading this review to see if the series holds up, then I'm here to tell you that it does more than that--it gets better. Here's what you'll get in this book: 1. Over-the-top combat The high-tech battles with their gatling miniguns and handheld drones never cease to amaze me. However, no high-tech weapon can ever be a match for a super-powered ramp master with a meteor-alloy blade. 2.

Adventure, drama, suspense, mystery, sci fi, and horror. I was given a free copy and I voluntarily give an honest review.

Who knows, he may have me changing my mind in the next installment - or at least I’m sure he will do his damnedest to try and change my mind. That is the art and skill of his writing. Compelling and in depth characters along with a complex but easy to follow narrative make this one hell of a good read, that you will find almost impossible not to get involved in. I’ve been hooked from book one and am still completely and totally invested in the plot/plots. This is nonstop action, adventure, twist and turns, and thrills and I am so looking forward to the next installment, The Crane Wars. From the back cover: Super heroes and vampires are fighting a secret war for control of the fabric of reality. Whoever acquires mastery of the reality shifting powers of the Metaframe will become the new gods of the universe. "Imagine if you could change the rules of the game, what rules would you choose?" IT’S A HOT WAR! - Cornelius Crane, King of the Vampire Dominion, has his eyes fixed on the final destruction of the vampire hunters of the Mirovar force team, and Anton Slayne. The Day Guard is ready. Crane’s new super soldiers can fight the superheroes of the Order of Thoth and the Red Empire during daylight. The Order of Thoth has called a secret conclave to decide who will lead. The faceless men who run the secret society will stop at nothing to ensure Francis Mirovar does not become the next Head of the Order. Supervillain and rogue vampire general, Chloe Armitage, seeks a new alliance with an ancient foe. A terrible power Anton Slayne has never seen before. Will the Day Guard tip the balance of power in favor of Cornelius Crane? Will the faceless men of the Order secure their grip on power? Will Chloe Armitage advance her enigmatic cause? Will Anton Slayne and his friend's super powers be enough to prevail, or will the last true hope of humanity versus the vampires be extinguished forever? About the author: I have one rule: Deliver an immersive reading experience that will transport you from the everyday world into a realm of fantastic imagination - and leave you there until you're forced to come up for air... I'm in love with high-octane, action packed, thrilling stories with epic heroes and mighty villains. I want suspense, I want characters with depth who I really care what happens to them, and who I will both love and hate. I love fantasy and science fiction and I want both in the same story. I want pace, and more pace, and yet time for emotional intimacy and heart-rending scenes. This is what I dedicate myself to writing - and why - because I love it.

    The Day Guard is a great book in the series written by Graem Rodaughan. This book is the perfect fourth book in this series and continues a great story line that keeps you glued to the pages. The author intricately weaves a web that you wonder how will our heroes manage to get out of this one. There are some players at work in hiding that will play some key roles and I am curious to see how they will work out at key moments in this series! There are still a lot of unopened questions and with eve The Day Guard is a great book in the series written by Graem Rodaughan. This book is the perfect fourth book in this series and continues a great story line that keeps you glued to the pages. The author intricately weaves a web that you wonder how will our heroes manage to get out of this one. There are some players at work in hiding that will play some key roles and I am curious to see how they will work out at key moments in this series! There are still a lot of unopened questions and with every answer we get, the author seems to throw a few more secrets out that keep you wondering. The plot is extremely well developed and follows multiple story line with the main characters of all the different sides as well as a few more sides that the author has added to the story. Anton is really coming into his own and is maturing finally. He is still a "Survivalist" as they call him but he is starting to be more prepared and think things through than be more off the cuff in his actions and it is starting to show in what he achieves! There are some new characters added that I am enjoying although it will have to be shown yet how they will work out for everyone. The pace of the book is just plain perfect never leaving me bored because it is dragging out nor did I ever feel rushed. The author also keeps it interesting by adding the different views of perspective to it which I do like and adds depth to the book, but that is how he has written this series to date. Probably my biggest complaint is, is that I am all done now and have to wait for the next one. The book ended on the biggest cliff hanger yet and I cannot wait to read what will happen next. Things are really coming to a big blow soon, yeah like they have been quiet so far. I am definitely enjoying this series a lot and can call myself a fan! This is not your average vampire story and the author finds interesting ways to add new aspects to it that are definitely not your run of the mill angles.
