My rating: 5 of 5 stars
There are few, very few, books that let me at 'squeeee level'. Well, cough, this is one of them.
In Jane Yellowrock's New Orleans, the European Vamps have finally arrived.
(well, funny factor here - Anita Blake old times nostalgia aside- they really arrived). As you can expect, bad-bad things occur almost simultaneously. There is a ton of action-packed scenes.
I'm really impresed when authors can show they thought their books way ahead; and the argumental arcs converged to leave you impressed.
1) Cherokee rituals.
2) Magiks, and angels, and scheming vampires, onorios, primos, emperors, and witches, and dragons, and Beast, and storms and rain.
3) And Alex and Eli:
I looked out into the living room. “I was thinking you could find and replace the fireplaces with gas ones.”
“No. Wood,” Alex said. “That way, when the zombie apocalypse comes we can have wood fire for heating and cooking.”
“When the apocalypse comes,” Eli corrected, “we’ll grab gobags and head for the hills. Some little holler Janie tells us about.”
3) Jane hit RickyBo.
4) Jane defends her love.
