For me, this wasn't her best work. I liked part of it, but other parts seem to really drag or seemed repetitive. There were points where the suspense could have led to more to progress the story line, but fell short. I won't give examples, for fear of spoiling the book for others. The focus of this book is on vampires, or I should say the culture of those interested in vampires. It is all based in reality, the evil in this book is man made. I enjoyed the book, I just think that it doesn't measure up to some of Jackson's previous work.

If you like suspense thrillers and love Lisa Jackson, you won't be able to put this one down. I couldn't wait to finish so I could get the next book in the NEW ORLEANS SERIES; Highly recommended.

Lost Souls by Lisa Jackson opens with gripping details of a ritual sacrifice. You can almost smell the fear of Rylee as she lies paralyzed but able to see, hear, and feel her terrifying ordeal. Four girls were missing from All Saints College, Baton Rouge, LA. The four girls had several things in common, including their emotional neediness and signing up for the same English class--The Influence of Vampyrism in Modern Culture and Literature. There is a strong cult influence at the campus. The allure of Vampirism was addictive to more and more students. Kristie Bentz returns to college, majoring in English. Her goal is to write true crime novels. She was almost obsessed with crime. Twice she had almost died at the hands of a serial killer. Her father Rick Bentz, a New Orleans Detective, begged her not to leave home. He knew about the missing girls and feared for her life. She and former boyfriend-turned-professor became embroiled in the investigation. What they discovered put their lives in danger. Lisa Jackson is well known for her psychopath killers. Lost Souls will not disappoint fans and will bring in new readers. This book is set in post-Katrina Louisiana Jackson captures the essence of the wounded area. The plot is forceful and includes unexpected twists and turns. Jackson captures the reader¿s attention from the first chapter and does not let go until the end of the book. I have to admit that I do not normally read or like vampire books. Fortunately, Jackson uses a very human protagonist and stays away from the supernatural. The ¿lost souls¿ draws the reader¿s sympathy. The lead characters are well-developed and have distinct voices. The protagonist is pure evil,making him perfect for this genre of book. Fans of Lisa Jackson will enjoy her latest once again, she delivers chills and thrills.

I'm a big fan of Lisa Jackson and I absolutely love the New Orleans Series but feel this book had a little too much back tracking to the previous books. I found myself skipping over several pages at a time that were just repetitive descriptions. I think maybe a brief summary of who's who in the beginning would be helpful for those who feel the need to re-acquaint themselves with the characters.

I liked Lost Souls by Lisa Jackson. I usually don't like anything "vampire" themed, but this one was a little different. It's characters were likeable (except the bad guys), and the story was entertaining. I have read many of Lisa Jackson's books and like them.

This book dragged a bit, but was nonetheless a great book! It had a wonderful storyline, and kept me in suspense the entire duration. I would definitely recommend and I will be reading more of her books!

I am not a fan of the Vampire books. I did not realize how much this was of the plot. I prefer other books by this author.

This book was great. It had the twists and turns that Lisa does so well. The book had plenty of suspects that you are SURE did it but you're wrong. What a treat it was to read this. The only thing is I haven't read that she plans on coming back to Detective Rick Bentz as there are some unfinished issues at the end.

Just finished reading this last night, as usual ,Lisa does it again, a very good book. I had one of the (vampires) picked out but wasn't the killer like I thought he was. I liked the romance between Kristi and Jay. I was getting upset at the end because of Kristy's dad Rick, but all ended well. Not quite sure about the vampire thing, but it still was a good book. I have everyone of her book except 2, I guess I just haven't found those yet.

A continuation of the Rick Bentz series, searching for serial killers but now with vampires! I do have to say I am soooooo tired of poor, put-upon, spoiled brat Kristi Bentz! She is no longer a child but a 28 or so year old woman who still acts like a spoiled, put-upon child! Geez, make her mature up already! I'm tired of her attitude toward anyone and everyone but herself, especially toward anyone who expresses concern for her!!
