    This book kept me guled until I was done. Jonathan Barrett, the unsung "hero" experiences first hand the lure and lust of the vampire world. Reading through the pages it was if I were there on the hot summer days, and erie nights. I will say I found the ending a little weak, but it sure left things open for P.N. Elrods next book. Worth the time!

    I am most times a huge fan of PN Elrod. I loved the vampire files, this however was not them. This book was so slow, it took me like a month to read and usually I can whip through a book in a day or so. I am gonna give this side series a second try in hopes that this book was slow cause it was the first one and setting up characters but honestly this a book I would borrow and read before deciding to buy, that is what I will be doing with the second one. As for the story line, it lacks a great deal when compared to some of her other works. The main character is not very likable, for the most part he seems spineless. There is tons of period description but not alot for character, so this is really a book for those into revolutionary war era fiction. Just hoping the next is better, gonna give it a second chance as a series and borrow it from the library.

    The American Revolution is one of favorite periods of history, and that alone might have made this book a worthwhile read, but the author delivers so much more. RED DEATH weaves skillfully between ideas borrowed from classic vampire fiction, and an entirely unique approach to the age old myth. Along the way readers will discover a rich adventure that echoes some of my favorite chapters of the classic Dark Shadows TV series, which seems to have been an inspiration to the author. Jonathan Barrett is a different sort of hero, a decidedly human vampire whose deadly new gifts serve him well when he finds himself and his family caught in the midst of America's War for Independence. A simply excellent read.

    Written well and is the personal changes of a man finding himself a vampire and trying to live his former life.

    Not a bad book. A bit slow, but it is different from the usual vampire books that you usually read.

    This book introduces Jonathan Barrett, who we meet briefly in Bloodcircle (Elrod's 3rd Vampire Files novel). Jonathan is much less cynical and polished than Jack, and also quite a bit younger (only seventeen as the story opens). We get exposed to his family (his mother, father, sister and cousin) and also see how he came to be a vampire, from the very beginning (falling in love with a strange girl, Nora) to waking up in his coffin and convincing his family and the townspeople he isn't dead. I loved this book not only because it presents the American Revolution from a decidedly anti-Washington view (very uncommon in historical fiction) but because unlike the Vampire Files, in this book we see Jonathan as human. He's young, he falls in love, doesn't get along with his mother, goes away to university, makes new friends, and 'learns the world.' The changes he makes while he is alive mirror the kinds of things he goes through after death-both are a type of change, of growing up. And unlike Jack Fleming, Jonathan has no idea what's happened to him when he wakes up in his coffin. He doesn't know where he is, what he is, why he survived his death, what he has to do to continue to survive, or how to judge and use his strength and gifts, and what his weaknesses are. The book ends not with him learning those things, but with him accepting that there is still a lot he doesn't know.

    I walked into this having never heard of P.N. Elrod. I did find this story rather slow to start, but when it got going it really got going. I was impressed with her vision. How she imagines a vampire coming into his power is quite well thought out and very believable. She goes into great depth with the character back plots, this gives you an amazing insight into the individuals.
