Thanks again John,
Still waiting on book 4,
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.
- Humorous in Jim Butcher sort of way
- Unusual take on the vampire trope
- Pop-culture references galore (this can be good or bad depending)
- 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.
Similar to Dresden, in that it is a good guy supernatural that wrestles with his own nature of good and bad...
But that's where it makes some changes. It has a much more fun natured streak, a master's in snark and a group of three that grew up together, two getting changed to vamps, one becoming a priest. And that friendship makes all three very, very human.
I loved it. Don't miss out!

The two main things I have enjoyed about John Hartness' Black Knight series are the character development and the fast pace. Well, one more and that is the snarky humor. Read morePublished 9 months ago by William L. Anfin Jr.
I enjoyed it. I thought the first book was decently crafted but clearly an initial effort. I like the author's sense of humor, and hope he continues to write.Published 9 months ago by Kenneth S. Hicks

Good story. Another take on the typical vampire storyline. Drags from time to time, but picks up eventually.Published 11 months ago by Amazon Customer
