In Monster: Nightrider’s Vengeance by J.D. Rhoades, the eponymous “monster”, Laura, is a Nightrider. Nightriders are killing machines which are based on vampires and engineered to win wars. Once, with the aid of Hellboys (based on werewolves) and Dead Boys (zombies), the wars are won, and their usefulness is over; the Nightriders are exposed to a virus killing Laura’s unit including her lover. Only she escapes termination. Laura, with her new companion Jess, sets on a path of revenge against the people who killed her unit. During an OP in exchange for information gone bad, Laura accidentally discovers a new artificial intelligence that will either help her to get revenge or change everything.
