Blood Harvest

Blood Harvest is a novel which draws upon the TV episode "State of Decay." It is an interesting story, and I enjoyed it. Vampires and the 30's mob just seem to go together, and the author did an excellent job of combining the two in a story. It also contains some interesting development of Ace's character. A worthy sequel to the series episode.

Recommended.
Stands alone, but is a sequel to "State of Decay", and the MA "Goth Opera" is based on events that occur during this novel.
Usual vampire and gangster violence.
Companions: Benny and Ace.

Shakedown

Shakedown is the novelization of the fan video "Shakedown", which comprises the middle third of the novel. It is a functional book, clearly suffering from the fact that the video did not involve the Doctor. The author does a good job of blending the video script into the added text, but it is far from "seamless." Still, it is worth reading, and Benny at least has some interesting moments.

Companions: Benny, Roz and Chris.
