    One thought on “Every Last Drop”

    1. Every starts with Joe s exile in the Bronx, and him dropping in on a post baseball game exodus, parsing the crowd for Vampyres He scents one and follows the trail, tracing it to a pack who has just attacked a woman It s one of the neatest, heart breaking series expositions I ve read it orients the reader to Joe, the Vampyre life and his moral struggle in an unusual way Shortly after, he is meeting Esperanza, a tough Puerto Rican and the closest thing they have to a Vampyre boss up there Or so he [...]

    2. Joe Pitt is really hitting the bottom this time Exiled from Manhattan, Pitt finds himself living like a homeless person, trying to stay alive in the Bronx And there is some real evil going on over there, some really sick stuff.

    3. Ok, so this one was full of awkward sentences and phrasing There were a few too many times when sections just a couple of short paragraphs long seemed disjointed and not quite understandable.BUT Joe Pitt ne Cool, I swear stuck off the island for a year of rogue vampiring Then, he s brought back for reasons begun in book 3 yeah, this is a series you NEED to read in the correct order And this time, he doesn t get played he plays the others.These books are gritty as in, you need to take a shower af [...]

    4. I believe that many readers don t like this book as much as the rest of the Joe Pitt series, but I am very impressed by it However, one must have read the three preceding books in order to get full value from this one.Every Last Drop is the book where we really start to see of Joe s internal life Throughout the series Joe is somewhat of an enigma We see only flashes of what really motivates him, and many times he hardly appears to be human But the facade begins to crack a bit in this volume He [...]

    5. I had to sit here for a while thinking what it was about these books I like so much.Joe s too jaded to like too much He seems to get too focused on things, then all of a sudden you realize he has been dealing with the big picture all along He doesnt share his thoughts but you realize he has been sitting there planning things once he gets in motion How everything always ends up being about the girl he loves.I m talking a lot about Joe aren t I Even though I said I didn t like him Characterization [...]

    6. From Society to Rogue to Society to really really Rogue to playing everyone s damn field, Joe just can t seem to find a niche and hang tight, lay low, stay copacetic It doesn t help that his mannerisms err on the side of painfully sarcastic and violently anticipatory No wonder he gets his ass kicked to the wilds, no, not Brooklyn again, worse to stay out of the sights of the Clans that individually each want his head on any damned platter available, Joe goes to the Bronx, a sort of homecoming th [...]

    7. 2.5 stars It s hard to believe how such a promising series devolved so quickly In this addition to the Joe Pitt series, our titular character falls deeper in the middle of a convoluted mess of a turf war Sela and Amanda are back, with Amanda being some sort of young genius with biomolecular and virus research We also find out the Coalition s secret source for their vast quantities of blood Not going to go into much detail for this one because I m saving it all for the grand finale on my review o [...]

    8. In which our protagonist tears down his entire world just to get back to with the only person in the world he loves Spoiler It doesn t work.This was the book, I guess, where Huston s noir roots really hit me you like Joe, and you root for him, but he s not always or even often a good person He doesn t always make choices that you would, or ones that are morally acceptable Or sane But, I mean, he s been telling you since the first book that not only does he live in the dark and drink blood, but t [...]

    9. I had the pleasure of moderating a panel with Huston, Charlaine Harris, and Marjorie Liu last week at the ALA convention Huston was a funny speaker It was easy to see where the humor and likability of a character, even one as nasty as Joe Pitt, comes from I got the feeling that most of Huston s work in the future will be along the lines of straight noir, not stuff with a fantastic element, but we ll have to see.In this installment, Pitt is at loose ends up in Queens, trying to get back to Evie a [...]

    10. Book 4 in the Joe Pit series became better than its previous ones Huston continues the fast paced, and violent story of the vampyre Joe Pit, and he just raised the stakes.After returning from exile, Joe decides to come back from the Bronx a year later after the events in the previous books And a lot has changed Amanda Horde, the girl he rescued, has established a clan, but problems arise in maintaining it She sent Joe into a mission, in which he discovers a great secret, that can bring the other [...]

    11. Charlie Huston s action scenes are unparalleled in crime fiction and his dialogue is so hip and dead on that El Leonard should be getting nervous Publishers Weekly starred review , on Half the Blood of Brooklyn It s like this a series of bullet riddled bad breaks has seen rogue Vampyre and terminal tough guy Joe Pitt go from PI for hire to Clan connected enforcer to dead man walking in a New York minute And after burning all his bridges, the only one left to cross leads to the Bronx, where Joe s [...]

    12. Let me start by saying, I love this series I also have to say this book is a bit of a disappointment I feel that the book is a bit repetitive, echoing the first book in the series.In this book Joe has cut all his ties to the various vampire clans who were supporting employing tolerating him in Manhattan His behavior has exiled him to the Bronx, and he can t return to Manhattan on pain of death He of course yearns to return, because that is where his home is, and because, his girlfriend, Evie is [...]

    13. Fourth in the Joe Pitt urban fantasy series set in a contemporary New York City about a lone vampire refusing to bow down to any one group of vampires Joe doesn t care about anyone else s agenda He simply wants to be his own man, um, vampire But rogues aren t tolerated and every clan, society, enclave wants a piece of Joe for their own ends.The StoryAfter burning all his bridges inHalf the Blood of Brooklyn, Joe is in miserable exile in the Bronx Even of a loner and alone than ever Joe doesn t [...]

    14. To start with, let s establish something this is the fourth book in a series The series is about Joe Pitt, who is a vampire At the beginning of the series, three books ago, he lived in Manhattan, and existed as a rogue, surviving by doing jobs for Manhattan s warring vampire clans, and always making sure that all of them felt indebted enough to him to keep him alive A lot has changed since then, but the predominant feel that of a gritty PI novel in an NYC setting, only with vampires has not Beyo [...]

    15. One of my friends insisted I read some crime novels this Readathon, which I am normally very happy to do only at present I find the walls of gold lettered murder fests on the bookshelves a bit overwhelming I ve started a few and gone off them quite quickly I need some suggestions, so if you have any fave crime authors please let me know.So I cheated and read The Penge Bungalow Murders and also this one, which is kind of a hardboiled detective meets vampire story It s the first book of Huston s I [...]

    16. This is what I thought was the last book in the Joe Pitt Vampyre series, and it s a book that I ve had hanging around the house for several months I mean, I like Charlie Huston s stories, and when it comes to dialog, I honestly can t think of anyone who writes it sharper and effectively than he does, but the gritty, dark noir novels he get tend to get repetitious At this point, I was just reading this book to finish out the series and see how certain things that happened at the end of the last [...]

    17. After burning all his bridges at the end of Book 3 this being 4 , Joe Pitt has nowhere to go, no friends, even his girlfriend won t talk to himW, I love all the maps that come with these novels They help me get around the city and the book I ve never been to NYC The maps lend me a Citizen For a Day card D They also help with landmarks many I ve heard of, but not understood well AND with the placement of the boroughs, Brooklyn, the Bronx, Queens, New Jersey Joe is waxing philosophical in this lat [...]

    18. I believe that many readers don t like this book as much as the rest of the Joe Pitt series, but I am very impressed by it However, one must have read the three preceding books in order to get full value from this one.Every Last Drop is the book where we really start to see of Joe s internal life Throughout the series Joe is somewhat of an enigma We see only flashes of what really motivates him, and many times he hardly appears to be human But the facade begins to crack a bit in this volume He [...]

    19. Charlie Huston books are becoming automatic purchases for me a rarity for a miserly fellow in graphic novels the equivalents are Trondheim s Dungeon, Azzarello s 100 Bullets and Carla Speed McNeil s Finder series Joe Pitt is a rogue vampire in the Bronx, no fixed address, no reliable source of blood and for the first time since No Dominion s brief Harlem sojourn a melanin deficient minority for an extended period of time the African Americans and Latino Americans vampires of the Bronx and Queens [...]

    20. There s another world in New York City, one that s its citizens know nothing about Vampyres, those infected with The Vyrus live in clans scattered throughout Manhattan They need to feed on human blood to survive And vampyre Joe Pitt has been exiled to The Bronx Might as well be in Siberia But the island has an inexorable pull, and after getting roughed up by a Bronx clan and losing an eye making him like Andrew Vachss character Burke than ever Joe heads back home and into into a horrorshow beyo [...]

    21. 4 Joe Pitt, Vampire PI UF 4.5 starsExciting, exceptionally well written, violent gritty UF Set in New York City, where various vampire clans co exist, not always peacefully Each clan has its own territory, its own agendas, goals, and old grudges against each other Joe Pitt, vampire PI, finds it impossible and dangerous than ever to maintain his independence.No spoilers this series is highly entertaining and different from any other UF I ve read Very gritty and violent, but unique plot and chara [...]

    22. If you ve got this far in the series you ve gotta love Joe s grizzly idiotic anti hero persona it s not a novel you can just pick up on its own, being so firmly entrenched in the 5 book storyline At the beginning it wasn t clear where the story was going hell, even at this point I m not sure, but the first novel introduced the players with quite a standalone story.Joe, trying hard to stay off the radar in his self imposed exile back in his old home in the Bronx Manhatten seemed like hard work bu [...]

    23. 3.5 stars This is a pretty good book, but this series is starting to become a little repetitive How many times can Joe get snatched, interrogated and threatened A few new bad guys get introduced, but mostly Joe makes the rounds again of all the old familiar ones Certainly don t start with this book I don t think this it would make a bit of sense to a new reader.This entry is darker and has less humor than the earlier books The ending is fairly satisfying, but there is obviously at least one bo [...]

    24. This is the fourth book in the series I love the concept of the world that Huston has created or rather how he realistically renders the world that we know with unexpected secrets The characters are fantastic, the heros and the villains I ranked this a little lower than the previous three because of some James Bond type concerns On one hand, our hero s luck is bit too much like James Bond in the way that his enemies tend to talk and talk and give him so many chances at escape It would feel in k [...]

    25. This was a good chapter in the story of Vyrus infected translated vampire Joe Pitt, but it stands out in my mind as the weakest standalone book out of the series so far With the previous three, I felt like they were excellent books that would still be almost as enjoyable even if you never read either of the other two However, this one relies extremely heavily on material in prior books, and it seems that its entire purpose was to set everything in place for the 5th and final Joe Pitt book.Don t [...]

    26. Joe Pitt reemerges from his exile in the Bronx to do what he does best stir up trouble With a new clan, the so called Cure, disturbing the delicate peace between the other Vampire clans, Pitt makes a deal with the Coalition to find out if the new clan is actually close to discovering a cure for the Vyrus But the plot takes an unexpected turn, when Pitt ventures to Queens to look for the source of the Coalition s blood supply What he learns changes him And if people know what he knows, it will de [...]
