Lifeblood: The Vampire Files, Book 2 | [P. N. Elrod]

Lifeblood: The Vampire Files, Book 2

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.

Publisher's Summary

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?

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

    "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. ;)

    "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.

    "Great book"

    Love Elrod's work. The narrator gets better as they go on. Great if you like vampires and noir or anything with good 1930s feel.

    "Left me wanting more..."
    Any additional comments?

    I've wanted to get into P. N. Elrod for awhile since she has been involved with the same various collections of short stories that one of my favorite authors (Jim Butcher!!) contributes to as well. I'm very glad I took the chance and gave this series a listen! Think old style black and white private investigator with a supernatural twist. I don't want to spoil any of the story line but I was so taken in by the main character and his very human side kick that the ending left me hooked NEEDING to find out what happens next. The series continues by another narrator but is just as good. I do wish the books were longer (each is only 6-7 hours in length) but so far well worth the credit.

    Any additional comments?

    The Vampire files are typical P N Elrod: light escapism without insulting your intelligence. The hero's character is charming, the other main characters interesting, and the story was never boring. A good listen and worth the credit.
