    Joe Pitt's life sucks. He hasn't had a case or a job in God knows how long, and his stashes are running on empty. What stashes? The only ones that count to a guy like Joe: blood and money. The money he uses to buy blood; the blood he drinks. Hey, it's that or your neck, buddy.

    Story

    No Dominion is another wild ride with reluctant hero Joe Pitt. It is darker than the first, with a lot of action, but no less brilliant and intense. Joe Pitt is a one-of-a-kind original. Huston's gritty style has me hooked, and Brick's narraton has me craving more. I highly recommend this audiobook.

    There’s only so much room on the Island, only so much blood, and Manhattan’s Vampyre Clans aren’t interested in sharing. So when the Vyrus-infected dregs of New York’s outer boroughs start creeping across the bridges, the Clans want to know why. Bad luck for PI Joe Pitt. Joe used to be a Rogue, work off his own dime, pick his own gigs, but tight times and a terminally ill girlfriend pushed him to the renegade Society Clan. Now he has all the cash and blood he needs, but at a steep price.

    Story

    I find myself addicted to the Joe Pitt stories, Huston's vibrant and gritty characters, and Brick's flawless vocal delivery. That said, I must admit that this is my least favorite book in the series. There is a lot of talk and political positioning by characters other than Joe Pitt. While I am sure Half the Blood of Brooklyn could stand alone, it rather feels like a bridge to get from one story arc to another. Like me, existing Joe Pitt fans will most likely enjoy this story. However, if I could recommend only one book in this series, it would not be this book, but rather Already Dead.

    From the Battery to the Bronx, Manhattan is crawling with Vampyres. Joe Pitt is one of them, and he's not happy about it. Yeah, he gets to be tough as nails and hard to kill. But spending his nights trying to score a pint of blood to feed the Vyrus that's eating at him isn't his idea of a good time.

    Story

    This is an excellent story! Joe Pitt is a streetwise New Yorker, a vampyre, and a guy trying to hold on to his identity and independence despite coersive power plays by Manhattan's competing vamyire factions. But don't be fooled. This is no formula vampire story. Author Charlie Huston artfully gives us a glimpse into the sout of Joe Pitt, NYC, and the human condition, served up in a gritty noire style. Pitt is a credible, well-crafted character, as are the people in his world, both living and dead. Narrator Scott Brick hits the New York dialects and social styles spot on, to the point where I found myself saying, "Hey, I know that guy!" - more than once, Forget blood, I am addicted to Pitt. Between Huston's brilliant writing, and Brick's amazing portrayals, Already Dead is an vivid listen and an incredible ride.
