Sintesi dell'editore

Jack Fleming was an investigative journalist in Prohibition-era Chicago until he got shot by an unknown assassin, bitten by his vampire girlfriend, and then became one of the undead. Now, this nice-guy nosferatu has a bunch of crazy vampire hunters on his trail, armed with crosses, silver bullets, and sharp wooden stakes.

He doesn't know how they found out about him or why they are "out for his blood," but it's not a problem for this street-wise gumshoe, until someone starts shooting. Jack himself may be bulletproof, but his friends are not. And Jack is determined to get some answers, even if it kills him - again. It's a case of the living versus the undead. But who's hunting whom?

"Elrod s got it down. A blend of the hard-boiled detective novel and the vampire tale...good-natured fun." ( Locus)

Not as good as the first, but still pretty good

The title says it all. The novel is good and entertaining but just lacks a bit of the grittiness of the first novel. We do get to learn more about the main character and some of the past of the woman who made him a vampire. This one is a lot less dark and a lot more predictable than the previous book, hence the lower rating .

You could read this one as a stand alone but it will be more enjoyable if read following the first novel. Once again, the main character is pretty much the only supernatural element of the story. That's not a bad thing, just how it is. The main character does come off a bit more sappy and weak than in the first one but still makes a good main character. I hope the author toughens him up a bit in later stories.

Alll in all, it is still a very good book and definitely worth a listen. Just be aware there are about 12 novels in this series so if you get hooked you may be buying a lot of books. ;)

Not Great

Kinda drags along.......then ends abruptly. Seriously disappointed after plowing through the drudgery, only to have such an incomplete ending.

Better than reading it

I started reading this series in the 90's. I still have the first 5 books in paperback. I love that I can listen to this series now while I do other things. If you haven't read the series and you like Chicago history I think you will enjoy these stories.

Fun, entertaining, adventurous!

Lifeblood
(Vampire Files #2)
by P.N. Elrod
This is another re-read for me. I love this series and forgot just how good it was until diving into it again! It's a 1930's vampire story with show girls, mobs, and the vampire's best friend that's a PI. It's A short for a novel but contains everything a longer novel has!

Lifeblood, meh….

I started listening to this book about a week ago, which just so happened to be a very busy week so I wasn’t able to devote much time to it, but last night I was determined to finish it.

This pains me to have to say this, but, the book was s-l-o-w and I’m guessing this was deliberately done to set the mood. However, it was too slow and I was disappointed with the main character, Jack Fleming he was excruciatingly dumb I was hoping that at some point he would wise up and and find his brain and act accordingly, maybe use some of those investigative talents he boasted about.

Would I recommend this book, yes and no, if you’re looking for a slow relaxing book to be narrated by a man with a soothing voice, then yes. However, if you’re looking for a action packed blood dripping vampire fangs, nope, not the book for you or me.

So enjoying this series

I was turned on to this series from a short story. I like the variation of just enough supernatural to make it believable. I'm especially glad that I can binge to catch up! Onward!

Awesome detective story

I love vampires and I love suspense, P N Elrod does a wonderful job of combining both. Terrific book and I can't wait until you get more of the Vampire Files on the site.

Really enjoyed.

I enjoyed this book and wish they were also in Kindle as I like to read along some here and there. Read these years ago borrowed from the library and even bought a couple to donate to library that mine didn't have. They are still entertaining. I do wonder if I got annoyed with the characters back then when reading the series (so far just 2 in this time) about them always getting snuck up on. I know you have to push the story along but....
Anyway looking forward to the rest.

This series definitely gets better as it continues

Both the story & the narration gets better, in this second installment, as things become more immersed in the story. In the first book Barrett Whitener's narration starts out very bland & monotone but as things move along his voice animation improves & the story comes to the forefront.
I would definitely listen to the next adventure in this series.
