It's not every afternoon that an enigmatic, comely blonde named Stilton (like the cheese) walks into the scruffy gin joint where Sammy "Two Toes" Tiffin tends bar. It's love at first sight, but before Sammy can make his move, an air force general named Remy arrives with some urgent business. 'Cause when you need something done, Sammy is the guy to go to; he's got the connections on the street.

The Black Knight Chronicles: lots of vampires. No sparkles. Serious snark. This bundle includes books one through there: Hard Day's Knight, Back in Black, and Knight Moves.

First of all let me say that this story is fun and an enjoyable read. John Hartness spins a fun tale but these three end pretty quickly.
I was a little put off by his use of "clips" instead of mags, and when the main character "pulled the hammer back" on his Glock I had to shake my head. I know it's all for fun, but ask a gun guy to edit those parts if you can't get them right.

Nick Russo is an ok narrator, but that's about it. He is a little flat but I got use to him.

I will keep reading this series, and I would recommend it to others.

Eric didn't ask to be a vampire. In fact he didn't even believe in them. Biting your own tongue with your fangs does a lot of convincing. Even so, being a part-time undead isn't as easy as you might think. It can let you hold down a day job, true, but sometimes the night "life" can be more than a little difficult, what with those bloodthirsty urges and predatory instincts kicking in.

I was pleasantly surprised when I stumbled across this story. The action is not "break neck" paced, but there is plenty to keep you engrossed.
I really liked the twist on the old vampire stories, that you can be both alive and dead. I'll keep on listening to the other two books to be sure.

Sherlock Holmes is an unparalleled genius who uses the gift of deduction and reason to solve the most vexing of crimes. Warlock Holmes, however, is an idiot. A good man, perhaps; a font of arcane power, certainly. But he's brilliantly dim. Frankly, he couldn't deduce his way out of a paper bag. The only thing he has really got going for him are the might of a thousand demons and his stalwart flatmate. Thankfully, Dr. Watson is always there to aid him through the treacherous shoals of Victorian propriety.

I didn't know what to expect, however, I was pleasantly surprised!! Fun listen and really hooks the listener. I very much enjoyed the story.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Holmes by far, because he is so daffy!!

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

No

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

The "other" Holmes detective.

Any additional comments?

Loved it. Will purchase the next one!!

The first book of Day by Day Armageddon took us deep into the mind of a military officer and survivor as he made a New Year's resolution to start keeping a journal. The man kept his resolution and brought to us the fall of humanity, day by day. We see the man transition from the life that you and I live to the prospect of fighting for his very survival against the overwhelming hordes of the dead. We see him bleed, we see him make mistakes, we witness him evolve.

What made the experience of listening to Beyond Exile the most enjoyable?

I really enjoyed the first book in this series, Day By Day Armageddon, and couldn't wait for this one to come out.
J.L. Bourne did a good job, but kind of left us hanging at the end. The character (oddly never named in the book) was well done, and I found myself rooting for him to make it through his survival.

There a few techical details that are just annoying, but that's only me being a guy who enjoys when someone talks weapons, and they get it right. Example, at one point they use Reaper drones with laser guided bombs. Why not use what they actually have? Hellfire missiles. And the MP-5's are "innacurate".....I have been an MP-5 operator for years, and at the distances he speaks of, they are a surgical tool.....Anyway, minor details. I want the next book now!

Who was your favorite character and why?

They don't really give you characters other than the main one, again who is un-named. So I guess it's the Lieutenant.

Which character – as performed by Jay Snyder – was your favorite?

Jay did a great job with all of them. I really enjoyed his work.

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

In A Dead World, One Man Stuggles To Unite The Living...

Any additional comments?

Not as good as the first book, but very enjoyable. Leaves us haning at the end....
