Product Description

Undead to the World

A Bloodhound Files novel from DD Barant

Jace’s return to Kansas is an instant reminder that there really is no place like home. The tavern is still brimming with losers, practical jokers, and motorcycle chicks. Even the town’s only Goth is still wearing eyeliner. But just as Jace is about to click her heels and hightail out of there, she’s roped into a brand-new case. Somebody is possessed. And the bodies are piling up…

They call him the Gallowsman. According to legend, he was sentenced to hang—though his crimes still have not been specified. When he was strung up to die, his spirit stuck around waiting for people to hang themselves…so he could steal their bodies. Now, with the undead rising up and going on a rampage, Jace must put her own neck on the line. Can she get the Gallowsman to give up the ghost?

5.0 out of 5 stars Bloodhound Files as witty as ever. 7 Jan 2013
By NS
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I must admit my rating would be between 4 and half to a five star rating. I came across the bloodhound files over a year ago and got hooked because the main character Jace is so witty and funny that I really enjoyed the story and all the other characters are excellent too. I must admit at first I thought I missed a book book when I started reading this 6th book because I couldn't recall how she ended up in Kansas. I like theses stories because it's a different approach to all the other vampire and werewolf stories out there and they are all funny, found myself giggling while reading it, hard to put down. Would recommend anyone to read these stories but start from the first book first so you know how it all starts for our witty FBI profiler being transported from our universal to an alternate one where the main population is run by vampires, werewolves, lems, and only a small human population. I hope all the other books come available on kindle too, i've got the paperbacks at the moment. Fun reading that I recommend.

4.0 out of 5 stars Brilliantly Entertaining 14 Jun 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Okay so I didn't realise this book was the last in series until after I finished reading it but knowing this now actually makes the ending more powerful, though I will say it's an ending people will likely either love or hate! But enough about the ending, the story is a brilliantly entertaining action-packed adventure full of quirky characters and witty banter, much like the previous books in the series. There were quite a few Wizard of Oz references and some were used to very amusing effect. Jace Valchek's adventures have gotten pretty wild and this was definitely the wildest. All in all I've enjoyed Jace's journey and this feels like a fitting way for it to end. A great ending to an enjoyable series. Recommended reading for fans of urban fantasy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Well done again 12 Feb 2013
By Susan
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
Good story line which was at first disconcerting as I have been used to following Jace's adventures in Thropepirelem, but it worked itself out well. Good characterisations, and am happy to see Jace's sense of humour which I do appreciate appearing again. Am reading it a second time to make sure that I squeezed every drop out of the book as I tend to read it through and if enjoyed, go back for a second helping just in case I missed something.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great series, lousy ending. 11 Feb 2013
By Kathleen - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is the 6th --- and presumably final --- book of a fun and very imaginative series. But the ending didn't bring closure as much as it left on a cliffhanger. This didn't leave me wondering, it left me feeling cheated.

2.0 out of 5 stars a drag 30 Dec 2012
By kitty kat - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The story was sooooo dragged out. I skipped through a lot of it and don't feel that I missed a thing. Another alternate reality...everyone has had their memories manipulated. Takes the entire book to sort them out. Bad situation, no escape, dead people and I didn't care at all. Read it if you must but I can't recommend it.

1.0 out of 5 stars What was Barant thinking? 6 Jan 2013
By FDP - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Love the rest of this series. Can't get through this one. Horrible choice to go in the direction she took it. Have started and stopped at least three times.

March 2013 update. Finally picked it up again and made it through the book. It was ok and got better, but not great compared to her other books.

2.0 out of 5 stars And that's it? 11 Sep 2013
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
So...I checked the author's page and this is the final installment in the series.

And this is how it ends? I don't want to give spoilers but I've enjoyed the series overall and felt like it was just starting to get good.

Considering this is the final book in the series, there are a ton of loose threads and the ending is...abrupt to say the least. I definitely had higher hopes than this. This book felt rushed and didn't flow, like the author was just trying to fulfill a contract for a 6th book, get it done and move on to his next series. I think I'll avoid books from him again - while I enjoyed this series, I don't want to get involved in another one for this lack of payoff.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great book, bummer ending 3 Dec 2012
By @Julia_ATUF - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Review courtesy of All Things Urban Fantasy

The Bloodhound Files is a series unafraid to disregards the laws of physics for the sake of a great story, and UNDEAD TO THE WORLD is one of the best yet. Though heavy on plot and a little light on character, Jace's banter and action has always been enough to keep me coming back for more.

Barant is not afraid to push the boundaries of his world outward in every book, and his mind bending plots often have me questioning "reality" alongside the characters. UNDEAD TO THE WORLD is a prime example of this mechanic, opening to a recognizable world that is oh so askew from where I had expected to find Jace. Much of a reader's ability to try and unravel this puzzling plot hinges on recognizing hints of familiar characters in their new incarnations, so I wouldn't recommend this book to anyone who isn't caught up on the series.

Despite being "a book apart" from Thropirelem, UNDEAD TO THE WORLD will be immediately familiar to fans. The story runs a convoluted plot on a steady diet of witty repartee. I'll follow Jace and Charlie anywhere and my favorite parts of this book were when they were simultaneously figuring things out and bantering back and forth. As much as I enjoyed this funny, interesting book, the ending lowered my rating from 4 bats to 3. The climax of UNDEAD TO THE WORLD took a reasonable (and expected) cliffhanger and mashed on a little love triangle angst that had only the barest prior references, a move that lowered my appreciation over all.

Barant's plots, while intricate and impressive, also tend to be so over the top I feel a bit disconnected. While UNDEAD TO THE WORLD does a better job with all the moving parts and magical mechanics that characterize this series, this book-long digression from Thropirelem left me very conflicted. Barant has orchestrated some every interesting possibilities for his characters, but those tantalizing futures were buried under a rather abrupt cliffhanger that turned me off. Fans of the series won't want to miss this one, and despite my frustrations, I know I'll be back for more.
