Publisher's Summary

Paranormal Investigator Ian McDermott has come to the small coastal river city of Astoria, Oregon, to investigate a rash of recent slayings, that in their wake, have left the banks of the Columbia River littered with horrifically mutilated, completely exsanguinated rotting corpses.

All leads point to the new waterfront nightclub, aptly named: The Morgue - devilishly devised by its unabashedly flamboyant owner, Vladimir Drago Salizzar (a self-proclaimed vampiric creature of the night), to attract Gothic types and presumed vampire role-playing raving revelers.

Ian, along with his four-legged friend, Scout, and his financial benefactor's niece, Zoey, finds himself in way beyond his depth, caught up in an unimaginable web of extreme danger, malevolent evil, and demonic deceit in this terrifying tale that will leave you breathless at every twist and turn; as you dive deep into the cold hellish abyss that is...Red Tide - The Flavel House Horror: Vampires of the Morgue.

    "Great narration."

    I was so looking forward to this as I absolutely adored book 1, but to be honest, it's a bit of a let down!

    This time we see Ian in Astoria, Oregon. He is investigating the grizzly murders that are leaving people mutilated and drained of blood. He has an idea of what may be causing the murders, and after what happened in book 1, he now knows that the things that go bump in the night are real, but how can he find the Vampires and stop them? Just what lore is real and what is not?

    As I said, I loved book 1 and was really looking forward to this. I eagerly started it but for about half to nearly three quarters of the book, I found my attention wandering. I didn't think it was as fast paced as I was hoping, and the dialogue between the characters became quite annoying! It seemed like they had to say the persons name, whom they were talking to, multiple times during their talk. It was repetitive and very very tedious. About half way through I was going to put it aside for later but I persevered as I wanted to see what would happen.

    Now it wasn't all bad. The characters were all well developed. Ian was as awesome as always and along with Scout, his trusty dog, they make a great team. In this one, they meet a prolific writer and his niece and I enjoyed the twist the author put on for them. I also enjoyed the Vampire lore and mythology., it showed that the author did his research well. I enjoyed the club they were investigating but did think the author could of made the villain a little more mysterious. We know kind of from the start that it's Vladimir Drago Salizzar that is the vamp, but I wished we had a bit more suspense before finding this out.

    In all, it's a good read and has me very curious to see where the author takes the story. I still love Ian and definitely want to continue the series but I hope the author can fix the issues with the dialogue because it really has the potential to be a great series.

    S.W. Salzman did a great job again with the narration. There wasn't as many sound effects in this as in book 1 but there were still some, and they were all well placed. He had plenty of different tones for the characters and made the book a little more enjoyable.

    *I received this for review from the narrator via AudioBook Boom. This in no way affected my thoughts.*

    Story
    "Not really a paranormal investigator"

    This audiobook was provided by the author, narrator, or publisher at no cost in exchange for an unbiased review courtesy of AudiobookBoom dot com.

    I don't know how i feel about the story. For a paranormal story, we don't see anything paranormal until the end of the book. For a PI story, there's no investigation. In the beginning of the story, Ian decides he needs to go to the Morgue, a distasteful vampire-esque night club. He spends the middle of the story lounging around and flirting with a girl. Then finally at the end he goes to the night club and we reach the climax. On the way, he meets a fiction writer once, who acts as the story's wise-old-man trope. Suddenly the author gives him a lot of money and calls them friends. I don't buy it. Without giving spoilers, I didn't buy the end of the story either for similar reasons. I felt ian really didn't do much for the town as a paranormal investigator. 3/5

    As for the narrator, i thought he was fantastic. He was great with the hysterical Sally and older author and radio messages. He uses some sound effects like music, dog barking, and door opening. He didn't convince me he was a sexy 20 year old girl, but to be honest, I'd be a little creeped out if he did. 5/5

    "Not as good as the first book."

    I liked Zoey, but the story isn't as strong as in the first book. The action isn't as compelling, neither is the setting.

    "It's ok"

    I got this book from audio boom for a honest review
    The story was not to bad. It did not have me to interest in the characters or the vamps. Not sure I would go to the next book
    If you like private detective style vamp books then this is for you

    "Finally, Ian and vamps!"

    I received a copy of this book for free from the author/narrator for an honest and unbiased review.

    I love the vampire twist to this book opposed to the first. I enjoyed the first book very much but I really enjoyed this one more. The narration was spot on and I will definitely be reading more of this series. Thanks for letting me review.

    Happy Reading/Listening!!!

    "Great Story!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Red Tide - Vampires of the Morgue: The Flavel House Horror to be better than the print version?

    This is not my usual forte. That being said I found the book entertaining, and very fun to listen too. The Narrator reads it perfectly. I am looking forward to book three!
