Not sure what to say about this one. I will do a quick review and each and then my overall thoughts.
The Vampire with the Dragon Tattoo was a good introduction to Spinoza and his tormented psyche. You got a good sense of what makes him tick not to mention you got to see just much he is willing to help this little old lady find a lost girl. The introduction of the vampire aspect was interesting as Spinoza was never really sure what he saw. I also really liked the ending.
The Vampire who Played Dead felt like exactly what it was a middle story in a trilogy that wasn’t good or bad but for me this one didn’t really push the story forward any. It felt very random especially after listening to the last story in the trilogy.
The Vampire in the Iron Mask was really good and brought the first book full circle. It had plenty of action and gave a full sense of closure to the whole story. The story started with a bang and ended well.
The trilogy was good but I actually wish the stories were longer. I liked the Spinoza character and he fit well into J.R. Rain’s world. I guess my biggest issues is that it felt like the vampire mythology J.R. Rain built in the Samantha Moon stories is very different from this one even though they are in the same reality. Good choice for some quick listens. The narrator has a much deeper voice and I did have to turn it up to catch every thing he was saying.
