I adored the first two novels in this series because of their characterisation, plots and settings so had very high expectations for this one. This is the story of Beatrice “Trish” Muffet and the spider who loved her, Nicky “Little Boy” Blue. Trish first met Nicky when they were transplanted and promptly fell in love. She watched from afar as Nicky built his criminal empire, married Jules Capulet (one of the Willies) and supported him after Jules was murdered. Jules’ death turned Nicky into “the Spider”, a vigilante, as he thinks that dealing with the scum of the earth may bring him closer to nailing Vlad Dracula. Vlad however is after Trish and Nicky is determined to protect her. Continue reading

You’d think being a dragonspeaker and mediator would be glamorous but Myrna Banks’ regular day usually involves dealing with copious amounts of vomit, irate clients and paperwork.  Her ex-boyfriend, Trian Chobardan, pops up wanting her help even though he stomped all over her heart two years ago when he stole classified documents. Myrna can’t resist the opportunity to be involved in something special rather than the usual disputes between dragons and cattle farmers.  If she could only resist Trian, she’d be doing well.

I’m glad Frost broke away from novels that just feature Cat and Bones because there are so many cool secondary characters that deserved to get a HEA. I’ve had a soft spot for Mencheres for ages and was curious what kind of woman would capture the eye of someone who has lived for so long and experienced so much. PI Kira Graceling is walking past a warehouse when she hears someone in pain. She investigates and discovers some ghouls torturing a bloke. A human female risking her life to save him is the impetus Mencheres needs to defeat his attackers. He saves Kira, holds her captive until his blood should have exited her system and then tries to send her away. Problem is he just can’t quite let go. Continue reading

Winterblaze takes a slightly different approach to the other novels in this series as the romance is between an estranged married couple, Winston and Poppy Lane. Winston’s life has become increasingly complicated. He was chewed up by a werewolf in the last novel leaving him scarred and he became quite bitter after discovering that his wife had concealed her own ‘gift’ from him. A demon is out to cause trouble and both Winston and Poppy fall over themselves trying to protect each other. Continue reading

The Vampire and the Virgin is not bad for a filler novel but its formulaic nature didn’t really set my heart on fire. Robby MacKay, vampire swordsman extraordinaire, has gone to Patmos to recuperate after a serious injury. He needs to focus on getting better so he can get back to hacking and slashing Malcontents. The last thing he expected was to fall for FBI psychologist Olivia Sotiris. Continue reading

Our next tortured Templar is Farran de Clare who has been assigned to act as a guard for respected scientist Noelle while she tests the Sudarium of Oviedo. Both these characters are incredibly stubborn – Farran isn’t interested in finding or romancing his seraph and Noelle’s atheism means she refuses to accept anything the Knights Templar say.  I really enjoyed the first in the series so had fairly high expectations for this one. I was not disappointed. Continue reading
