Publisher's Summary

He lives to kill monsters. He keeps his city safe. And his silver hollow-points and back-from-the-dead abilities help him take out any kind of supernatural threat. But now an immortal evil has this bad-ass bounty hunter dead in its sights....

Ever since a monster murdered his family, Deacon Chalk hunts any creature that preys on the innocent. So when a pretty vampire girl "hires" him to eliminate a fellow slayer, Deacon goes to warn him - and barely escapes a vampire ambush. Now he's got a way-inexperienced newbie hunter to protect and everything from bloodsuckers to cursed immortals on his trail. There's also a malevolent force controlling the living and the undead, hell-bent on turning Deacon's greatest loss into the one weapon that could destroy him.

    I like scifi and urban fantasy. I don't like romance novels. If you are the same my reviews should help.

    "The name is right"
    If you could sum up Blood and Bullets in three words, what would they be?

    Blood and bullets.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Deacon as the whole series comes from his view everyone else doesn't get a great deal of attention.


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    Mr. beaver is good at voicing a tough guy. Some of the dialog was awkward, but that was the writing not the voice action.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Vampires! Guns! Merica!


    Any additional comments?

    Good book. Fast and fun but not very deep. This series definitely has potential. The novel equivalent of a beer commercial with vampires. If you want a tough, action oriented book you could do a lot worse than this one.

    "Jim Beaver is a Win"

    I was irrationally happy when I read that Jim Beaver -- Bobby Singer on Supernatural among other great roles -- would be narrating the Deacon Chalk books. I love the Bobby character, and I could totally hear Jim's voice as Deacon. I wasn't disappointed; it's perfect. There's not a big range of voices for the other characters, but since I had read the books before listening, I could follow. At the time of writing, only the first novella and first book are available, but I'll be watching for the others for sure. Kudos to whoever chose Jim for the voice, and thanks Jim for doing the reading! :)

    I commute about 3 hours a day so I go through ALOT of books! I prefer stories that take me away from reality... what does that say about me

    "Good take on Urban Fantasy"
    What was one of the most memorable moments of Blood and Bullets?

    Deacon's snarky comments make this a fun listen.


    What about Jim Beaver’s performance did you like?

    Jim's gravely southern voice was a perfect match for Deacon.

    "Boring"
    What disappointed you about Blood and Bullets?

    I'm so good looking, look at all my tats. look at my muscles'.


    What was most disappointing about James R Tuck’s story?

    This had an interesting story line, I just couldn't stomach listening to him tell me over and
    over about his great body. his tattoos . what a bass ass he is.
    It just got really boring.
    Then this very old and powerful vampier just lets everyone go so she can explore him


    Have you listened to any of Jim Beaver’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    NO


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Bordom

    Any additional comments?

    I got the book, because it reminded me of one of my favorite series, Monster Hunter International, by Larry Correia. Unfortunately, it turned out to be little more than fan fiction for Supernatural
