Week 52 Reviews: Down Time, Lucky Day, Career Day, Neutral Day, Blood Boy, I Hunt Killers, Game, Blood of My Blood








From Goodreads:
Billy Dent is the world's most notorious serial killer, but even killers need to go on vacation sometimes. When a mysterious death occurs in the hotel where Billy is staying, his "job" seems to call. Will his vacation truly be down time for him after all?

In this prequel novella to the I Hunt Killers trilogy, bestselling author Barry Lyga crafts a creepy, intricately plotted mystery.

From Goodreads:
This is the story of the small town sheriff who captured one of the world's most ruthless and cunning murderers.

It all started with Dead Girl #1 and Dead Girl #2, the first killings in the sleepy town of Lobo's Nod in decades. Two murders: just a coincidence, or something more sinister? One thing's for sure -- it was definitely inconvenient in a year when Sheriff G. William Tanner, a mourning widower, had to run for reelection.

With a trail gone cold, it's only luck that links the murders to the most notorious serial killer in memory. And in a town like Lobo's Nod, the killer must be someone Tanner already knows....

From Goodreads:
You're seventeen years old and your father is the most notorious serial killer America has ever produced.

He brought you up. Taught you everything he knows. Everyone in your ordinary American town knows who you are. So even though Dear Old Dad is safely behind bars, when the killing starts all over again, you are the first person the police come to see.

They don't know whether it's nature or nurture. And neither do you.

From Goodreads:
Connie is the new girl in town, but she already has friends...and maybe even a boyfriend. Her father isn't happy that Connie is dating a white boy like Jasper Dent, and things get even worse when she realizes that Jasper is the son of Billy Dent, one of the world's most notorious serial killers! This is the story of how Connie and Jazz overcame their early troubles and fell in love.

From Goodreads:
Fan-favorite character Howie Gersten — Jazz Dent's hemophiliac best friend from the I HUNT KILLERS series — finally gets a story all his own! Set one year before the events of the series, "Blood Boy" takes you inside Howie's hilariously twisted mind for one night only. Enjoy Halloween as only Howie can, learn more about his relationship with Jazz and Connie…and discover exactly what it is he's keeping a secret from both of them.

From Goodreads:
What if the world's worst serial killer...was your dad?

Jasper "Jazz" Dent is a likable teenager. A charmer, one might say.

But he's also the son of the world's most infamous serial killer, and for Dear Old Dad, Take Your Son to Work Day was year-round. Jazz has witnessed crime scenes the way cops wish they could—from the criminal's point of view.

And now bodies are piling up in Lobo's Nod.

In an effort to clear his name, Jazz joins the police in a hunt for a new serial killer. But Jazz has a secret—could he be more like his father than anyone knows?

From Goodreads:
Billy grinned. "Oh, New York," he whispered. "We're gonna have so much fun."

I Hunt Killers introduced the world to Jazz, the son of history's most infamous serial killer, Billy Dent.

In an effort to prove murder didn't run in the family, Jazz teamed with the police in the small town of Lobo's Nod to solve a deadly case. And now, when a determined New York City detective comes knocking on Jazz's door asking for help, he can't say no. The Hat-Dog Killer has the Big Apple–and its police force–running scared. So Jazz and his girlfriend, Connie, hop on a plane to the big city and get swept up in a killer's murderous game.

From Goodreads:
Jazz Dent has never been closer to catching his father.

Jazz has been shot and left to die in New York. His girlfriend, Connie, is in the clutches of Jazz's monstrous father, Billy--the world's most notorious serial killer. And his best friend, Howie, is bleeding to death on the floor of Jazz's new home. 

Somehow, these three must rise above the horrors and find a way to come together in pursuit of Billy. 

But then Jazz crosses a line he's never crossed before, and soon the entire country is wondering: "Like father, like son? Who is the true monster?"

From New York City to the small town of Lobo's Nod, the chase is on, and this time, Jazz is the hunted, not the hunter--while Billy Dent lurks in the shadows. 

And beyond Billy? Something much, much worse. Prepare to meet...the Crow King.


From acclaimed author Barry Lyga comes the shocking conclusion to the bestselling I Hunt Killer trilogy.

My first review of Career Day, I Hunt Killers, Game
My Review:
I really enjoyed reading these books again! And then getting to read the end of the trilogy, yeah, that was really fantastic! The idea of a son of a serial killer using his knowledge to investigate crimes, yeah, it's a fantastic concept!

It was very interesting to read the short stories set before the main trilogy. Like, we learn about Jazz's mom in Down Time, which makes it easier to accept what we learned in Game, and the events that happen in Blood of My Blood. I also really enjoyed being in Connie and Howie's heads!

I remembered some of the big twists in I Hunt Killers and Game, like their drama teacher became a victim, and that there was the Hat killer and the Dog killer. But reading these books again, yeah, it was so fantastic!

Blood of My Blood, I was really excited to read, because yeah, the ending of Game was just evil! So much happened, and it was great to have those cliffhangers resolved, but there was still all the crimes that Jazz was committing. Oh, and the big reveals that came, like who the Crow King was! So good to read!

Loved this series so much, it was such a great read!
