DESTROYER: ONUS  by Dan Champagne
Volume III, Book I of the Abaddon Trilogy.

The vampire war continues, having spilled out into the streets. And the authorities have taken notice. The Night Reapers get captured. So Laiel Brockade is called back from his long vacation on a boat. His return is not well received, but then again, his ex-friends did ask him back. For a rescue mission. Which isn’t such a good fit for a guy like Laiel. On top of that, the war against the vampires is also a war amongst them, and that front is being handled by Bess, the daughter of Dracula, and her immortal lover, the assassin, Cupideau. Expect body bags and ample property damage before it’s all over… pretty much a regular end to the week for Laiel and his pals.
