Review

When I started listening to this book I have to say I did not think I would like it. It was only after the first 8 or 9 chapters that I really settled into the first story. By then I was totally hooked and became completely imerced in the series. It is really very good and has many funny moments that made me laugh. It is supposed to be a serious story about 2 vampire detectives and a human police officer and a priest fighting supernatural villains. For the most part it is, but it is also their struggle to cope with what life has dished out to them. So some of the 3 stories have sad moments as well as triumphs. The series is very well written and I commend the author for that. The narrator is brilliant he is a perfect choice and I liked him a lot.

EXCELLENT. GOOD PLOT AND FAST ACTION.

Thank you Audible for the box set of the first three books on this series. The story line is very good with good characters. Jimmy Black and Freg Knightwood are two vampire private investigators. They were hired by a client who was cursed for eternity. They got pulled into a bigger plot involving possession of human children to bring an ancient evil from hell to the world. They were aided by a police detective, a priest, a witch, a fallen angel to save the world. Very well written and performed by Nick J Russo. I hope John G Hartness will write more books on this series my request is that the story be longer than right now.

Not for me here is why.

I think the target age for this series is 13 till 17. the jokes fall flat, the storyline is very basic, and the characters completely lack depth. the book wasn't horrible I've read worse however I will never buy another book in this series. I finished this one however and I don't feel you can actually write a review if you don't finish the book. to me the book was entirely too hokey. the narrator did a decent job, but I became annoyed with him honestly I think due to the poorly written jokes.

in summary I would not recommend this book to anyone I know.

Excellent series reminiscent of Iron Druid Series

Wise cracking private eye detectives who happen to be vampires and end up mostly on supernatural cases. The humor is good, the action is good and the narration is good. The three books contained here, A Hard Day's Knight, Back in Black and Knight moves are all very good and consistent with the genre. Enjoyable and entertaining.

Great Story, narrator could have been better

First of all let me say that this story is fun and an enjoyable read. John Hartness spins a fun tale but these three end pretty quickly.
I was a little put off by his use of "clips" instead of mags, and when the main character "pulled the hammer back" on his Glock I had to shake my head. I know it's all for fun, but ask a gun guy to edit those parts if you can't get them right.

Nick Russo is an ok narrator, but that's about it. He is a little flat but I got use to him.

I will keep reading this series, and I would recommend it to others.

3 N 1

Three Black Knight books in one. The omnibus has the duo fighting other supernaturals in an attempt to keep decency and help others with their detective agency. The stories are interesting, occasionally funny, and entertaining. The narrator does a good job!

Serious business with humor.

I was surprised to find how much I enjoyed this omnibus. I finished each book with a smile on my face. The narrator was terrific and made the story come to life.👏👏 I voluntarily reviewed this audio book after receiving an advanced copy I requested.

Love the series

I really enjoy this series. It's a lot of fun to read. I was very excited it went on sale for the omnibus. Sad to say it will probably be my last purchase with this narrator. He has the accent for the characters but the vocal acting just isn't there. If you also do not enjoy the narrator but haven't read the series stop listening and just read it on your own. It's a great series with likable characters, a fun story line, and creative storytelling.
