WHEN DARKNESS FALLS... WHEN THE UNDEAD RISE WITH A HUNGER FOR BLOOD... WHEN THE HUNT IS ON—AND YOU ARE THE PREY... WILL YOU BE READY?

In the inevitable event of a vampire attack, the average citizen will be forced to engage in vicious hand-to-hand combat. To avoid serious injury, disfigurement, or death by exsanguination, you need to know the proper combat strategies and techniques to ward off a stronger, faster, more agile undead opponent looking to drain the life from your body. Are you prepared? With detailed illustrations and firsthand accounts from vampire combat veterans—as well as interviews with actual members of the undead—this manual provides you with the information you need to survive with your life and blood supply intact, including:

· Debunking myths, i.e.: vampire flight, animal metamorphosis, physical attraction to humans
· Crafting the most lethal vampire weapons from everyday materials
· The pros—and cons—of decapitation
· Weaponizing Ultraviolet (UV) light against an undead opponent
· Using the Domicile Histodiscordant Reaction (DHR), otherwise known as “The Vampire Invitation,” to your advantage
· Solo attacks, team-based combat, and much more...

The Vampire Combat Manual is your indispensable key to survival, whether in a one-on-one battle for blood or a face-off against multiple attackers. Don’t wait until the sun goes down—prepare yourself now!

About the Author:

Roger Ma specializes in hand-to-hand combat against the undead. He is the author of The Zombie Combat Manual: A Guide to Fighting the Living Dead. His new book, The Vampire Combat Manual: A Guide to Fighting the Bloodthirsty Undead, focuses on surviving an attack from an attacking vampire. He is the founder of the Vampire Combat Club and the Zombie Combat Club, organizations that focus on battling the undead without the aid of a firearm.  He was recently featured as a zombie expert on the History Channel documentary Zombies: A Living History.

Review:

"Stick with Roger Ma and you'll get out of this alive!  The Vampire Combat Manual is a brilliant and highly practical guide to fighting back against ever kind of bloodsucker! Highly recommended!" - Jonathan Maberry, New York Times best-selling author of Flesh & Bone and V-Wars

"By turns factual and fictional, Roger Ma has done it again with this joyride of a combat manual.  If you've been looking for a battle plan to keep you alive when the vampires rise against us, look no further and listen to Roger.  He's trying to save us all."- Mira Grant,  New York Times Bestselling author of Blackout

"As with his previous book, The Zombie Combat Manual, Roger's formidable knowledge and razor-edged execution of the subject matter is nothing short of phenomenal.  The Vampire Combat Manual is a volume that neither mortals--nor fang stalkers--should ever dare go without." - Don Roff, author of Zombies: A Record of the Year of Infection

"With The Vampire Combat Manual, Roger Ma solidifies his place at the apex of undead combat expertise.  If there is a more thorough, trenchant, and well-written guide to putting down vampires, I have never encountered it.  Definitely take a bite out of this one!" - Scott Kenemore, Author of Zombie, Illinois
