I’m stunned and almost wordless. “Brimstone Kiss”, Carole Nelson Douglas’ 2nd book about Delilah Street is just as good as the first one and only leaves me begging for more.
Delilah is an orphan. She’s also got the appearance and coloring that make her vampire bait in the new millenium where all the fairy tale creatures came out of the closet. She recently came to Vegas on the trail of her double; a woman who could be her twin who appeared in a dissection scene on CSI V. In the first book she hooked up with Ric Montoya, a delicious Latino, former FBI agent who earned the nickname the Cadaver Kid for his ability to find dead bodies. What he never publicized was that his ability was actually the talent to call up zombies. The first book ended with Delilah escaping from a power and money hungry werewolf with Ric’s help. In this newest book, Delilah is becoming a ‘person of interest’ to even more of the supes in Vegas. And she’s learning alot more than she ever wanted to know about the struggle for power among the varied supernatural groups. When her investigation into an old murder ruffles feathers (or fur), she finds herself neck deep in danger.
If this series sounds interesting, you really need to read the first book “Dancing With Werewolves” before you tackle this one. There’s just too much information you’d be missing. Carole Nelson Douglas has penned an intoxicating mixture of fantasy, suspense, mystery, romance, and the paranormal. I want more.
