OK

Although the characters and plot isn't particularly orginal or unique, it is however a very fast and easy read, a real page turner, a book for those don't nedd to get too involved with the characters.

Half-baked

This story just didn¿t grab me. The concept of this story was good but the delivery fell short. I only finished this book because I had nothing better to read. I can accept predictability in a story but this book seemed adolescent at times. The plot seemed empty and trivial. I didn¿t find the main character impressive in the least and I definitely will not be reading the rest of the series. Thank goodness I got this book from the library.

    A Different Kind Of Vampire Story

    I'm not into all the vampire stories that seem to be so popular right now, but this one looked different, kind of off-beat. Well,off-beat it was, but in a good way. At first, it was a bit hard to follow, as Mr. Huston doesn't use quotation marks to denote dialogue. He also explains things after the fact. For example, the main character, Joe, takes a phone call from Evie, but it's not explained who Evie is (Joe's girlfriend) until later. This happened several times in the book. At first, it was pretty annoying; not knowing for sure what a reference meant, or who someone was, but then, after I got used to this being the way the book was written, I got into it. I was pleasantly surprised by the story and the fact that I liked it enough to want to check out the other Joe Pitt stories in the series.

    It was ok

    It was ok for a free book.I'm not sure I'm going to pursue the series. It's basically a noir mystery type book with vampires. Not bad. Give it a try - it might be right up your alley.
