For those of you running across this series for the first time, do yourself a favor and get the first book in this series, Already Dead: A Novel, and start reading from the beginning. This is a darkly lyrical, powerfully told story of vampires in NYC, but unlike any vampire story you've read before. In Huston's world, vampires mostly lead lives of quiet desperation, drink whiskeys with a beer back, smoke cheap cigarettes, scrabble to pay the rent, and have to contend with a dangerous addiction to blood. Gotta have it, or you will die. However, you just can't start knocking people off or the boys in blue will catch wise and then it's genocide for vampires time. To protect their existence, the vampires have formed into clans who divide up Manhattan and police themselves ruthlessly and contend with other clans much like rival gangs. Huston's vampires are not romantic figures nor are they any more horrific than humans. They were once ordinary people struggling to get by and now they're the same people, with a need for blood, struggling to get by.Read more ›
In Charlie Huston's fourth Joe Pitt novel, the tension rises as protagonist Joe Pitt returns from exile to exact revenge and, once again, play all sides against one another to get what he wants. From dealing with savage, african inspired savages, digging up old skeletons from his past across the river, to uncovering a secret so large, it could potentially destroy life altogether for those that carry the vyrus. Not to mention the long awaited rendezvous...
Being a reader since the first title (Already Dead) I couldn't wait for this book to drop, but was also slightly worried. After all, Huston's last three had been knock outs, could he capitalize on the universe he had built??
The answer, which comes as no surprise, is yes. Every Last Drop is just as gory, engrossing, and fast paced as the rest of the series has been. I literally couldn't put this book down until the very end. I anxiously wait the conclusion to this five-part masterpiece.
In this go around, after burning bridges with all the undead folks who matter in the various tribes of Manhattan, Pitt is exiled to the wild and unaffiliated wastelands of the Bronx and Queens, where untamed vampire gangs stalk home-bound Yankees fans, their blatant feedings threatening to expose the undead's existence to the world at large. Pitt's misfortune puts him in the hands of the abominable "Lament", an ancient and nefarious villain who corrupts and runs bands of vampire youth in the Bronx, to be rescued - in a fashion - by his old nemesis, Dexter Predo of the upscale "Coalition" clan. Predo tasks Pitt with penetrating the upstart "Cure", headed by the brilliant and uninfected Amanda Horde, the young debutante rescued by Pitt in the first installment of this off-the-wall series. But Pitt has his own agenda - getting back to his familiar streets of Manhattan, and finding the fate of girlfriend Evie left in the "care" of the frighteningly surreal "Enclave" at the conclusion of "Half the Blood in Brooklyn." Before this one wraps up, Pitt has discovered a horror unspeakable evil, evil even as defined within the context of this Tolkien-like nightmare world of vampire clans co-existing peacefully - well, mostly peacefully - with New York's straight citizens. Pitt's discovery leaves the clans are on the verge of war, and Pitt with a few less pieces than when he started all the fun.Read more ›
If you haven't read any of these novels (this is the fourth in a 5 part series) don't start here. You won't have a clue what is going on. You need to read them in order.
If you haven't read any of these novels before and you're trying to decide whether or not this series is up your alley - I offer the following. If you prefer novels with at least one likeable character, you probably won't like this series. The violence is of the `visceral bone crunching' variety. In the second novel, Joe bites an old lady's eyeball out. If that sounds morbidly funny to you, you'll probably like this series. If it sounds appalling and makes you cringe, you probably won't like this series. If you are in search of traditional vampires or sparkly vampires or hunky shirtless vampires, you won't find them in these novels. The vampyres in this series are the product of a virus and they definitely aren't romance material. Finally, one of the things I like about most of the entries in this series (not so much in the third one) is that they're smartly written.Read more ›
