More About the Author

John G. Hartness is a teller of tales, a righter of wrong, defender of ladies' virtues, and some people call him Maurice, for he speaks of the pompatus of love. He is also the author of The Black Knight Chronicles from Bell Bridge Books, a comedic urban fantasy series that answers the eternal question "Why aren't there more fat vampires?" He is also the creator of the comic horror Bubba the Monster Hunter series, and the creator and co-editor of the Big Bad series of horror anthologies from Dark Oak Press and Media. 2015 has seen John launch a new dark fantasy series featuring Quncy Harker, Demon Hunter.

In his copious free time John enjoys long walks on the beach, rescuing kittens from trees and recording new episodes of his ridiculous podcast Literate Liquors, where he pairs book reviews and alcoholic drinks in new and ludicrous ways. John is also a contributor to the Magical Words group blog. An avid Magic: the Gathering player, John is strong in his nerd-fu and has sometimes been referred to as "the Kevin Smith of Charlotte, NC." And not just for his girth.

Show some love for John G. Hartness' new and vastly improved Black Knight Chronicles - Omnibus Edition. The original trilogy is still here, but John adds much more detail, more history of our favorite bloodsucking detectives, and many more laughs. Don't misunderstand me, the original three were great, but the omnibus comes with much more polish, like that shiny new toy you had as a kid, but this time you don't have to take a bath with it to keep it clean. Even for those who have read the trilogy should check this out. Totally worth shelling out some cash for.
Thanks again John,
Still waiting on book 4,
Ryan G.

The joke's are cliche the action is fast and furious and the series just keeps getting better and better. This is one of the most fun I have had reading a new story in a long time. If you have a little bit of nerd inside of you and are not afraid to see it in yourself and have a lot of fun at the same time than this is the series for you.

While the vampire trope is so overdone at this point it's gag-worthy, the nerdy, imperfect vampires of this series still have some appeal. I found the humor to be variable in quality, but as another reviewer noted, the editing was done well enough that most of the common 'eyebiters' were avoided.

Good:
- Humorous in Jim Butcher sort of way
- Unusual take on the vampire trope
- Pop-culture references galore (this can be good or bad depending)

Bad:
- Plots are flat and relatively lifeless
- Author insists on weaving in religion while making little effort to understand the religions he's using (Catholic fixation, e.g.)
- Character personalities are often defined or ignored in order to "score the joke"

It was acceptable, and would make a good beach read, but not much more.

Good solid fun read. I like the idea of a pudgy vampire and for obvious reasons I picture Greg (the best friend) as played by Kevin Smith. You'll understand when you read it, if the heading of this review doesn't give it away.

I only give 4 stars because the main character is...tough to put into words. Lets just say you don't constantly refer to yourself as `the guy who hits things really hard' when you get your butt kicked in *every* fight. Seriously, three books, lotsa fights, no wins. I don't count it a win when other vampires, Faeries, weres, and dragons pile in on your side. Greg the sidekick vampire is actually a far more interesting character; Jimmy is more like the drunk annoying friend always trying to start something and needing someone else to finish it.

Vampire books with a sense of humor, sarcasm, cliche, and just plain fun. You can't help smiling, and sometimes even laughing out loud at the antics of the two main vamps who are stuck with their barely-out-of-their-teens bodies for eternity. No sparkly, perfect, boring vamps in these books. The two main vamps are your average nerds, one tall and gangly, the other overweight, trying to do some good in their afterlife. The books do not take themselves seriously so you find yourself just going along for a fantastical ride no matter how ridiculous some of it is. Great fun. Good read.

The concept of being bound to the body in which you were turned is rarely explored. The author makes the characters enjoyable, and this set is a fun read. I would read more from this author.

(Well except for that one time.)

This series is awesome. Think Dresden, but with a vampire as the main character. In fact I think there may be a Dresden nod in the 2nd book (at the unnaturals' bar.)

The overall premise is pretty basic - good guy takes on various bad guys in the name of truth and justice. It's the wit and, dare I say it, humanity of the good guy that make it fun. If you want an entertaining series with some supernatural elements, add this to your cart. I can hardly wait for Book 4 to be published.

This book is fast paced and fun to read with great wit and storytelling for all kinds of readers. I really enjoyed all three books, and you can't beat the value of getting them all included in one volume. Can't wait for future books in this series!
