What can I say! I gorged on these books! I could NOT put them down. I love Jim Knighthorse's arrogant sense of humour, the sheer bulk and strength and determination of him. The cases are unusual and engaging, and the thread which runs through all 3 books is Jim trying to get to the bottom of a family tradgedy, which gives insight into his character. I cannot wait to read more and I am impressed with JR Rain's versatility - I love his Samantha Moon (vampire detective) series and they are very different - the strongest similarities being that they major page-turning plots about detective work.
I'm sorry to say that I found the writing rather immature - it reminded me of the way I used to write as a teenager. The story-lines were interesting enough but the descriptions and dialogue were rather lacking in subtlety. I suspect teenage boys may well find these enjoyable, but I couldn't bring myself to read the third book (and I will usually persist, if only for the satisfaction of completing a task).
Enjoyed most of this trilogy, apart from finding the second book a little dull. Lead character is pure arrogance, so much so that he's hilarious. Not an overly taxing set of books to read, with the added bonus of all three being free when I purchased them.
Nothing too taxing here. Probably best to read all three in quick succession (as I did) in order to get into the title character. All three tales are fairly simple with no great effort at red herrings so they are not really who-dunnits. Maybe the author should try to give a little more depth to other characters rather than just the lead. Probably aimed at the teen market and if that is the intention then they are fine.
I really enjoyed Jim Knighthorse, he's a funny, intelligent, yet damaged character. His interactions with Jack & the concept of Jack's character is clever & makes your brain hurt. I like the relationship Jim has with Sanchez.
These novels move at a fast pace and it's difficult to put down with the desire to read on at the end of each chapter.
I really enjoyed the series. The character of Jim is so but not too likeable that its unbelievable that he could achieve what he does. Looking forward to book 4 of this series. If you are a fan of Harlan Coben then these books may appeal to you as Knighthorse is sometimes quite similar to Myron Bolitar
