This book was a roller coaster. I hope Ms. Mallory will quickly release the next book so we can see how Knight and Dulcie resolve their issues. I felt horrible for the position Dulcie found herself in, but I thought that Knight's reactions were real, letting his anger and hurt show rather than being too quick to trust after having been lied to. The other thing I really appreciate about this series is that they are books I can't put down. I just like the style so much, I'm definitely hooked from...more

Today's review is on Wuthering Frights (Dulcie O'Neil, #4) by H.P. Mallory

I don't know about you, but I just can not get enough of this series! Each book has just enough of everything to keep me anxiously waiting for the next installment, and number four is no different!!

In the last book we found out that the Head of the Netherworld is none other than Dulcie's long and forgotten father, the one man responsible for the illegal potions entering Earth. Not only that, he tells her that if she is to...more
Slight spoilers below. No plot points revealed.

The only other time that I have hated the ending of a book the way I hated the end of this was Hard Bitten in the Chicagoland Vamp series. Though HB was probably a lot worst cuz I was crying lol.

Mallory basically changed her main hero character into a rapist. And her Heroine into a fool.

When everything hits the fan it's like Dulcie goes from being the strong quirky heroine to a weakling who can't even formulate a sentence. Way to end the argument? T...more

Read my review on Paromantasy

Here is my one long sentence gush session..er, review: Wuthering Frights is an unputdownable, thrilling, action-packed, emotional roller coaster of a read that will have you laughing, crying and your mind rattling as Dulcie tries to find a way to fight her tyrant of a father, keep up with the lies of her now shady second life, and leave the life she once new behind to protect the ones she loves the most. The cliffhanger ending will leave your heart on the floor and b...more

WUTHERING FRIGHTS was just okay to me. The plot was in a way predictable.

The story picks up right where it was previous ended, with Dulcie receiving her commands and making her way back to the real world with Quinn.

After a ‘night of celebrating their release’ with Knight, Dulcie quickly asks for her job back, promptly breaks up with him, and begins her secret work for her father. It takes a toll on not only her friendships, job and sleeping habits, but as her as a person.

Melchior’s newest drug...more
I've followed H.P. Mallory for awhile now and I've never been unhappy with any of my purchases. I'm in love with both the Dulcie O'Neil series as well as in love with the Jolie Wilkins series!

This book was great! The last book we discovered the head of the Netherworld is really her father, who's a tyrant out for power and basically distributing the illegal potions and such. After reveling he is her father he makes her promise to get her job back with the ANC and basically report to him or else h...more
Wuthering Frights is another great Dulcie book!

Dulcie was in a bit of a pickle in this book and I felt so bad for her.
It was so heartbraking to see her struggle to keep everything together, to act against everything she believes in. How I hate Melchior for doing that to her! That damn elf clearly has no heart!
I was so happy in Great Hexpactations (book 3) when Knight and Dulcie finally got together so it was really breaking my heart when Dulcie had to distance herself from Knight in order to kee...more

I rate this a 4.5

I can say with confidence when I pick up a H.P. Mallory book from the Dulcie O'Neil series, I know I’m in for an entertaining story. H.P. Mallory has a great sense of humor and a flare for the dramatic. And this installment of Dulcie O’Neill is no exception to that rule. We end up on a wild ride immediately where the last book left off, in her new found father and Dictator of the Underworld. He has just given her an ultimatum she cannot refuse. Either she works from him, or Knig...more

I was so glad that I did not have to wait for this book considering the cliff hanger from the last book. I was a bit disappointed in how Dulcie handled her situation because she has been a very strong character up until now. But that is what is great about Mallory’s books, just when you think you know what the character is like and how they will react, they do something you don’t expect. That is what makes these stories interesting to me. And the surprises just keep coming which keeps you readin...more
Wuthering Frights

I am slightly biased as I LOVE pretty much anything that H.P. Mallory writes. This is the fourth installment for the Dulcie O’neil series. It is a cliff hanger (like everyone has said), but pretty much jumped right in where the last story took off (which was a major complaint from the last Jolie Wilkens book).

I really hate watching movies or reading books where the main character gets dumped on repeatedly. This happens to Dulcie in this book. I started reading it, and then stop...more

I will admit, I had to pluck up courage to read this fourth instalment in the Dulcie O'Neil Series and not because I thought it wouldn't be good. On the contrary, I was so upset with the way things were heading at the end of book three, that I just couldn't bring myself to face it straight away. I mean, come on! Poor Knight, it was written all over the wall.

But, after reading a couple of mediocre urban fantasies I just couldn't stop myself from going back to Dulcie. Let's face it - HP Mallory ca...more

Just as I was ready to call it quits on this series, the author left me with a cliff hanger!

However, I really was put off by the simplistic writing in the book. I'm not looking for something that is chocked full of flowery adjectives just for the sake of having them in there, but this is an exceprt from the book & there are so many others similar throughout the whole thing:

"I reached inside the cupboard closest to me and offered him a paper one. In general I liked paper as it was easier...more

I'm not rating this book because I kind of feel betrayed by this author...My friends keep telling me the ending really sucked, I personally thought the end of the previous book also sucked and I really just read the highlights so I could pass this up and start the next one. I'm currently between hating the author to hating Knight. Dulcie pretty much lost most of her appeal to me as she is now weak and a fool and I'm really sorry to see such an amazing character fall so hard. Same with Knight. He...more
So far, this book is off to a really bad start. Everything I hate in the last few books is here in spades in the first few pages. Oh look, Dulcie has to break up with Knight? No surprises there. She's keeping yet another secret that she should have shared with him? Wow, yeah didn't see that one coming. Dulcie is one of those characters who started off interesting enough, but through a series of nerve-grating personality flaws, I am quickly starting to hate. I am hoping this book gets better the...more

Could have been better" this back and forth between her and Knight, together, not together, together, not together is getting old and so many series do that that it wears on you quickly.

She's getting to be a half wit really, we get it you have fairy wings you can't control in the Netherworld, do we have to read a half a page or more about it every time. I will say the series is getting more meat into it and with this turn of events at the end perhaps it will get better and the characters will...more
Oh the cliffhangers! They will be the death of me!

But for the most part, as with all Dulcie (and Jolie) books, the story was very exciting and fast-paced. Great reveals (especially the very end!) and good character interaction. A couple (minor) gripes: Jolie's "decision" near the beginning of the book (don't want to give spoilers, but if you've read it I am sure you know what I mean) and the second to last scene of the book, by the car. Again, no spoilers here, but that scene just made me angry...more

Love the Dulcie series... this one is my favorite so far... I just love Knightley Vander... and the Denali scene is awesome... I just love this book... I couldn't put it down..
OMG! The next Dulcie book cannot come out soon enough! I wanted to throw my nook across the room a few times, but I loved it! Talk about a cliffhanger!
Another Fab book by HP Mallory.. I hate endings like this one but once again I will wait until the next book.
Malice in Wonderland can't come out fast enough.
Absolutely love this author and her series!
Can't wait for the next one
This fourth book in the series Dulcie O'Neil is the most intense and dramatic of all. The series began with a simple plot and a few comedic tone, but that has grown in intensity and narrative tension.

It 'hard to talk about the plot without spoilerare, but we can say that Dulcie has discovered that the father is not a good person, and had to agree to work for him giving in to blackmail: endangering the life of the beloved Knight.

It is from this moment that the player is involved in (or rather d...more

A father she never knew existed,
An impossible decision that had to be made,
A lie she must keep to herself at all costs,
And the realization that every choice she makes has consequences.

Fairy and law enforcement agent, Dulcie O'Neil, has just discovered that her father is the Head of the Netherworld, and a double-dealing, illegal potions importer. Worse yet, she's now working for him.

Knight Vander, Dulcie's boyfriend and Head of the Association of Netherworld Creatures, is on to her father, but,...more
This next installment was a quick read, and though it was a rollercoaster I refuse to say I didn't like it. I can admit that this book was chalk full of angst, drama, and heartbreak. If you do not love this series and these characters enough to go through that then don't read this installment, period. Personally, I believe H.P. Mallory is a superb author who creates this drama in order to keep the storyline going. In every series I have ever read the main characters go through times of extreme h...more
So... this book made me crazy, which I think speaks highly to the emotional connection you make with characters in any book series. Without giving away spoilers, I'd like to say that I was infuriated with an earlier decision by Dulcie, and then again during another incident which takes place much later in the book. However, with the several days that I've had to ponder everything since completing the book, I can say that I've calmed myself a bit and am looking forward to the next book in this se...more
