Editorial Reviews

Jean Marie Ward
“Elrod crafts some of the snappiest mysteries around that just happen to feature one of the most well-realized vampire characters in current fiction. The pacing never flags and the plotting never disappoints.”
Bradley Sinor
“Mixing genres is always a difficult task, but it is one P.N. Elrod has mastered in her Jack Fleming novels. She tells and exciting story with all the elements of a classic mystery and blends in the proper amount of vampiric fantasy, resulting in a good story that will keep readers going until the end.”
Publisher's Weekly Reviewer
“Clever characterization, wicked wit, and palatable mayhem...[an] entertaining detective romp.”
Library Journal Reviewer

I quite enjoyed reading the short stories and novellas in this collection. It provided a little more insight to some of my favorite Vampire Files characters, as well as giving me a taste of the author's style in other venues.

P N Elrod collected a group of short stories with characters from her Vampire Files series as well as unrelated stories. I am partial to the Vampire Files because it was my first exposure to Vampire stories. However, the other stories in the collection are equally enjoyable. I was entertained 100% of the time reading this Omnibus.
