Paranormal investigator Delilah Street deals with a variety of paranormal critters such as demons, doppelgangers, vampires and zombies in a Las Vegas liberated by a paranormal revolution.
A wealth of paranormal or urban fantasy books has inundated the book market. I suppose the whole vampire craze may have triggered it but regardless of the trigger, the books are popping up everywhere.
This book suffers somewhat as Delilah has a back story that never gets ...more
I had a hard time plowing through this. I think I even got up to do dishes… I really do like the premise of this story. If we could just get a different primary character. I really can't stand Delilah. She is such a major drama queen and a prick tease. Practically every sentence out of her mouth is melodramatic...I can almost see her raisi ...more

Unfortunately it is too little too late as it seems like there will not be a book 6:(

I would love to be able to say that this was a 5 star book, but in all honesty, I can't.
Although it had some moments of brillance (snappy language, sexual angst, etc), it just wasn't spectacular.

And no, I haven't tried any of the drink recipes yet.

Now I have to wait....and wait....and hope another book comes out.
