As a vampire, Coburn has always been at the top of the food chain--an apex predator. But when he wakes up this time, five years after a band of zealots tried to kill him for good, he finds human civilization followed him into the grave. Zombies have overwhelmed the world and only a handful of human beings are left.

What's a vampire to do? Rule number one: protect the food supply...

From official release/information:

Product Description: Coburn’s been dead now for close to a century, but seeing as how he’s a vampire and all, it doesn’t much bother him. Or at least it didn’t, not until he awoke from a forced five-year slumber to discover that most of human civilization was now dead—but not dead like him, oh no.

See, Coburn likes blood. The rest of the walking dead, they like brains. He’s smart. Them, not so much. But they outnumber him by about a million to one. And the clotted blood of the walking dead cannot sustain him. Now he’s starving. And nocturnal. And more pissed-off than a bee-stung rattlesnake. The vampire not only has to find human survivors (with their sweet, sweet blood), but now he has to transition from predator to protector—after all, a man has to look after his food supply.
