Review: Hard Day's Knight


Children are missing.

The police are stumped.

Halloween is coming, with an ancient evil on the horizon.

The vampires are the good guys.

This is not your ordinary fall weekend in Charlotte, NC. Vampire private detectives Jimmy Black and Greg Knightwood have been hired to keep a young client from being cursed for all eternity, but end up in a bigger mess than they ever imagined.

Suddenly trapped in the middle of a serial kidnapping case, Jimmy and Greg uncover a plot to bring forth an ancient evil into the world, and enlist the help of a police detective, a priest, a witch, a fallen angel and strip club proprietor to save the world. This unlikely band of heroes battles zombies, witches, neuroses and sunburn while cracking jokes and looking for the perfect bag of O-negative.


I have to say that this is not the type of book I usually read. I love paranormal - but usually go for the romantic/steamy type. I think this book is the funniest book I've ever read! Hard Day's Knight is about a couple of vampire detectives named Jimmy and Greg who seem to have a knack for getting themselves into a lot of trouble. These are not your typical suave and sexy vampires. These are basically a couple of dorky guys who just happen to have vampire speed and strength. It's a nice change of pace really. You can't help but love these guys, and you can't help but laugh through the whole book. The humor in this book was non-stop.

The pace of the book was non-stop as well. There was loads of action mixed in with all the humor. Not only do you have sarcastic vampires, you also get zombies, possessed children, and other paranormal beings added to the mix. The book flows really well, and there is no frustrating cliffhanger. I'd recommend this book to a variety of readers - those who like paranormal, investigation, humor... I would definitely read more books by this author.
