While out scouting in southern Indiana, Alessa Duvalier comes across a Kurian Conference being attended by every major military sect the Kurians have in the Midwest.

    "Worth the Gambit"

    This was my second time through this book- the first was an ebook version.  I enjoyed the audio book every bit as much as the ebook. I highly recommend doing a second read- there are definitely things that I missed the first time around.

    The Vampire Earth series is one of my favorites.  This book did not disappoint. It is from Duvalier's perspective instead of Valentine's and packs a punch.

    Christian Rummel gives an extraordinary performance (as usual).

    Looking forward to the next book in the series.

    "FRUSTRATING non-sequitors"
    If you’ve listened to books by E.E. Knight before, how does this one compare?

    HIs last three books have seemed incomplete and poorly edited. There are gaps in the storylines or references to events that have not yet happened (especially in Appalachian Overthrow) that seem to scream that nobody carefully checked the book. This is a shame because the stories are enjoyable.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Baltic Gambit?

    Would not have cut any but demanded fleshing out! Frustrated by disjointed jumps and apparent non-sequitors, especially in Chapter 10. It was already frustrating to pay full price for a novella, and it wasn't even internally consistent. I actually went to look in the print edition because I was convinced there had been some strange abridgement, but the fault was in the book itself.


    Any additional comments?

    I wish the author and editors would show some actual concern for tying together a tight story. They've created an interesting universe and likable characters, but all that gets lost when the reader is constantly trying to figure out what he/she missed that led to the current events or dialogue.

    "I am very curious as to the end game..."

    I picked up the first in the series as a paperback years ago and have been following since. I really enjoyed the twist from the classic terminology of vampire. I look forward to the next book, hopefully more in depth look at the wolves,cats and bears.
