Blood Harvest: The Entourage by RL Young is a post-apocalyptic take on humans and vampires that I found to be very unique. I’ll admit the first half of the book was a little slow because you are almost overwhelmed with information about the history and how they came to be in their present situation but it was interesting and I appreciated the depth the author went to. The structure of the society that was created was also very well thought out and original. I think the scariest part was that it made sense too.
The second half of the book flew by and as much as the first half was crammed with information, I found the end to be lacking in it. I wanted more with the end but it kind of left me hanging.
Overall the story is well written, and its a different take on the typical vampire story. I would recommend this book for ages 16+ and if there is a continuation I would really like to read it.

About the Book
I was sure of nothing else except that the return of the harvest ships, minus passengers, minus the vampire Entourage that was supposed to keep them safe, could only be bad news. My own brother, Sven is the leader of the Entourage, and now the leader of the rebellion, which conflicts me and my mother in ways that we hadn’t anticipated. The rebellion seems to be a catalyst more than an event, and truths will be revealed about the human and vampire condition that will take the entire post-apocalyptic inhabitants of the earth by surprise. Realizing that things really aren’t as they appear, I must put my own curiosity aside and allow things to unfold and reveal “naturally”. But this doesn’t make the process any less frustrating. The end though, could never be anticipated, not by me, or any of the others, this perhaps because the end may turn out to be the end of our civilization…
