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.

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.

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.

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.

I can't believe I got such a great deal on these! I'd never read Hartness before, but I can tell you, even omnibus edition wasn't enough!
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!

I gave it 4 stars because it had some things in it that contradicted other things that he had said before or done before and those parts didn't make sense. But it kept me entertained and I did enjoy it except for those parts and they were mainly in the last story of the omnibus. Overall a pretty good book.

The first two books tried way too hard. The plots seemed ridiculous, even for comedic urban fantasy. The author seems to have hit his stride with book 3. I almost didn't read the third book after not liking one and two, but since I paid for the omnibus I did. Now I'll read book 4 to see if the series gets even better.
