Synopsis: Bloodlist - Jack Flemming wakes up dead and can't remember how he died. Slowly he finds that he needs to drink blood and that his death has something to do with a gangster. He also realizes that his girlfriend, Maureen, has been missing for several years. Jack just gets his need for burial dirt under control when it's stolen. Jack meets his new best friend, Escott and new girlfriend, Bobbie.
Lifeblood - Jack's adventures continue with his search for Maureen. This brings Bobbie, Escott and Jack up against two vampire hunters and Maureen's mother-sister, Gaylen.
Bloodcircle - Jack and Escott continue searching for Maureen. They find the vampire who 'made' her; her trail disappears once she left his house. They also find that two other people around him have died under mysterious circumstances. Escott is worried about the woman for whom the vampire works and her young ward.
Review: These books have an interesting storyline and are well written. The characters are intriguing and the setting fits well with the storyline. ( )

I read all three stories one right after another. So, I'm reviewing all three stories at the same time. Also, because I read it all at one time, it feels like one big story, rather than three separate stories.

Now, the review. The series is a more a mystery novel than a vampire story. The vampires are more sedate, more human than the vampires of 2010 - yes, they need blood, have super human strength, can turn into mist, and hypnotize humans. But, they also fall in love, consider them selves humans, have normal human emotions. Also, even though they have super strength and super senses, there is a limit to what they can do, and a normal human armed with the right tools can easily take out a vampire.

Where the book falls flat is in that I found myself wishing for more passion - the author was going for a 1930's style detective story, and succeeds. But I found the characters to be a bit stereotypical, even though the author makes an effort to add a bit of depth. I especially found the character of Charles Escott, P.I. to be grating. This guy, while human, is more devious than the vampire. Plus the P.I. ran the show, with Jack (the Vampire) just following along, even in his own case.

Its a well written mystery, but as a vampire novel, it misses the point. I enjoyed reading it, but by the end, found the storyline and characters to be a bit tedious. ( )

This is a trilogy of books, Bloodlist, Lifeblood and Bloodcircle, there is a story arc linking the three and they're actually quite short, the entire set is 452 pages. While short they pack a lot into a few stories.

It's the story of Jack Fleming, a former reporter, now a vampire after an assignation with Maureen. He finds himself with some limitations and with some advantages in this new world. It's the late 1930's and he has friends who help and enemies who are both his own and those of his kind. P N Elrond uses the legends well and creates quite a believeable character who is both likeable and interesting without being so powerful that any peril is trivial. ( )

Really not my cup of tea. Contains first 3 books in Elrod's series, and it gets repetitive quickly. ( )
