I always enjoy reading books in Elrod's Fleming series, and Blood on the Water was no different. However it has been a while since I had read the previous book in this series so I found myself a little lost trying to remember what had happened. Regardless of that I really enjoyed seeing Fleming and Escott take on Kyler who was getting suspicious of Jack's abilities as well as getting in the middle of a mob war. Elrod does a great job with her Fleming character, and in this book Jack really tests...more
Better than the previous book. It was interesting to find out that Jack's powers had their limits and what would happen if he crossed them. Also, I like it when the books focus more on the friendship between Jack and Escott, their banter is always hilarious. The ending felt too open, though. Yes, Jack's situation was partially resolved with Kyler's death but it wasn't the end of it. I hoped for a more permanent solution with a shift to new plots in the next book.

P.N. Elrod can write a heck of a novel but this one... it wasn't as good as the others in this series. Well, I kinda take that back, it was just as good until the last chapter. There just seemed to be something lacking from the ending.
One of the best vampire stories I've read. There's a little romance (it's really hard to find a vampire story that doesn't), but it is 90% very entertaining story line. If you like this genre, I would not pass these novels up.

Vampire Files #6 Back to serial form, with a lot of back-references to the first book--the only one I missed so far. :(

The story is starting to slow down.
#6 fast paced and witty as usual
