A crashed wedding. A scorned vampire. Here comes the blood…
Necromancer Damian Vesik is no hero. At least, not according to the magical community that turns a blind eye to his battles against evil. So he chalks it up as one more thankless mission when he’s forced to stop his vampire sister from murdering her ex’s entire bridal party....
Infiltrating the ceremony to protect the innocent, Damian uncovers something even more sinister than a massacre. With the help of his berserker fairy friend, he may need to prevent an unholy union between ancient demons and the walking dead.
Damian has one chance to stop his sister and ruin the wedding before one hell of an afterparty dooms the world.
Days Gone Bad is the first book in the savagely funny Vesik urban fantasy series. If you like gritty action, undead enemies, and plenty of snark, then you’ll love Eric R. Asher’s heart-stopping tale.

A good start to the series
Days Gone Bad is a darker book than I’d typically read. There is guts and gore, swears, and a whole lot of dark things that happen in this tale. But the author really has some gem moments which kept me interested in the story. The first gem being the author’s ability to make me laugh. Very rarely do things make me laugh and yet I laughed out loud while listening to this story. The author really has nailed the humor element (which actually may not suit all readers but it worked for me). The second gem is characters like Foster (fae and friend of our main character Damian Valdis Vesik). If Foster could be my friend, that would be great. Seriously, I LOVED Foster. Third gem is the range of characters, although Foster is clearly my favorite I enjoyed the entire cast. I loved Damian’s humor, Sam’s wacky vampire freak outs, Kara and the other fae. So although at points Days Gone Bad got a bit too dark for my tastes I am really looking forward to seeing what else the author will come up with next.
A Good Start to Series
Days Gone Bad is the first book in the Vesick series. This can be read as a standalone. Will I continue to read future books in the series? Of course I will. There is a lot of graphic violence and gore so don't read if you are sensitive to that.
The book blurb adequately describes the storyline so I'm not going to repeat that all of that info here. This story involves necromancers, vampires, Fae, demons, and other supernatural creatures. Damian Vesick and his mentor Zola have their hands full while they try to stop a demon determined to wreck havoc on Earth. Will they succeed or will the demon destroy them and those they care about?
I have both the ebook as well as the audio version. The narrator does a good job. He is clear and easy to understand.
