Angela (Angel's Guilty Pleasures)
Soulless at Sunset is book one in the Last Witch Standing series by Deanna Chase. It’s a paranormal investigation storyline with a side of romance.

In Soulless at Sunset we are treated to a kick-ass witch who teams up with a shifter. Phoebe and Dax work together to keep the peace among the paranormal residents in New Orleans.

I found Phoebe to be an interesting character. I like her skills, her knowledge, her witch abilities, and her determination to find and help her friends. I also liked the i

Ha! Now that I’ve seen the blurb, I know this is a spin off...

Regardless, I loved this wild romp through Nola! Who knew so much danger could be jam-packed into two hellacious days?! I didn’t know what to make of Phoebe at first, but man, she grew on me fairly quick. She’s snarky and tough, and only those closest to her see the...I’ll say...slightly blunted edges to her personality. Her partner, Dax, can go into the swoony sweet category and kudos to him for holding his own with Phoebe, because t

This is a terrific book, I couldn’t put it down. This book has it all - a great story, captivating characters, a bit of suspense, and plenty of action. I look forward to reading more in this series.

I received a copy of this book from the author, my review has been voluntarily submitted.

Take a kick-ass witch who is a vampire hunter and a strong, good looking shifter, team them up and you have the start of one fantastic story! The team is made up of Phoebe and Dax who work together to keep the peace among the paranormal residents in New Orleans. They are assigned to watch over the doings at a gala hosted by Pandora who is the consort of Eadric Alcott who is the leader of the Cryrique hive. When Phoebe is given another assignment, all hell breaks loose at the gala. People are kid ...more

Surprisingly much more engrossing than I’d expected 😉

This was a very action packed, past paced story that spans no more than 48 hours in Phoebe’s life as she races to save her best bud, Willow, from an unfortunate end. The interactions between the characters was amusing, and I appreciated that the author didn’t make her characters without faults or prejudices (even if it was the usual hatred between shifters and vampires), plus the betrayal aspect was well done - even if it was a little predicta

I stopped at 212

This looks like a great book, and I want to finish it.

Due to the 2020 Covid19 pandemic, I'm not up to reading anything more dramatic than a YA teen rom/com.

I plan to get back to the book when this is over.

Shifters are moving in and vampires are being picked off in record numbers. And vampire hunter Phoebe Kilsen is right in the middle of the war. When Phoebe’s best friend goes missing along with the consort of the most powerful vampire in New Orleans, Phoebe betrays her heart and her shifter partner by teaming up with the one vampire she’s never trusted.

I'll never get tired of Deanna Chase's writing and this book is a perfect reason why. Soulless at Sunset is the book book in the Last With Standing series and a spin-off of the Crescent City Fae series. We are back in the world of Phoebe Kilsen, Willow, their lovers, friends, and acquaintances. In Soulless At Sunset, Willow, her husband, Talisen, and Pandora's, Allcot's consort, have all been kidnapped. Phoebe, her partner Dax, Allcot, and a various assortment of others work hard to save them al ...more

This is probably a better, more engaging, story if you read the crescent city fae series first. Having not read it, I didn't feel drawn to the characters so the story fell flat. Pretty typical of its genre. Paranormal investigation with a side of romance. The ongoing subplots with her missing brother and relationships (romantic and otherwise) tie the series books together. ...more

I think it would have helped me enjoy this book more if I read some of the series it is a spin off of.

Right away, I was drawn in by Phoebe and her badass attitude. As the story progressed it became apparent that her attitude was warranted. I enjoyed seeing her prove time and time again that she was considered the top of her field for a reason.

I also enjoyed seeing the interactions between characters. These interactions are what really sold for me that this wasn’t the first book in a new world, but I can’t say I’m mad about that. Instead, I got to see the inner workings of a group of people that

This was a great refreshing spinoff. I loved the Crescent City Fae series and this addition makes me love it even more.

Phoebe is smart, quick, and just the type of friend you want in your corner when thing hit the fan. When her best friend Willow and her husband Talisen are taken along with the Master of the City’s consort Pandora, all hell breaks loose.

Its twists and turns as Phoebe, her shifter lover Dax and of course Allcot who will tear the city upside down for Pandora, race to find them bef

I’ve been reading Ms. Chase for a while, and while I haven’t read everything she’s written, I’ve loved everything I’ve read that she’s written. Well, this book just blew those out of the water. Not only was it well-written, I loved the complexity of the plot, the great characters, the chemistry between the characters (especially Dax and Phoebe), and the action. I literally read this book in one setting as I couldn’t wait to find out what has going to happen next. For some reason, I found the mor ...more

It's an exciting paranormal action mystery with a bit of romance. I've read a few books in the author's related series, so I was somewhat familiar with the characters and settings. This is the first I've read where Phoebe and Dax are the primary narrators. There was a bit of reference to past events and relationships that I missed.
One character who turned out to be a villain is shown in a sympathetic light, and I felt sorry for them. Tears always move me.

I didn't realize this trilogy was a spin-off from another set (Crescent City Fae) by the same author but it didn't seem to impact my enjoyment of the story or characters in this one. Based on Book 1, Last Witch Standing is an urban fantasy in the tradition of the kickass heroine, hunky hero, non-stop action variety and I was hooked from the word go. The witch heroine has powerful magic and a big heart which means she has a circle of close friends she protects and a few frenemies who make her lif ...more

Great start to this new series. Who? Pheobe. What? Arcane Paranormal Investigations Agent. Where? New Orleans.

Phoebe's all dressed up at a charity gala. She there for her friend not working. Well, she pretty much was always alert and working. She should have been more alert. While she's distracted her friends are kidnapped along with an important female Vampire.

So begins the most important case she's ever had. Along with her new partner and ex-boyfriend, her kidnapped friend's shifter wolf (a S

Witches on the hunt

Unbelievable start to a new series.
Phoebe is a witch with unbelievable powers. She is partnering with a hunk of a shifter by the name of Dax. They may work together but they have a thing for each other.
When their friends are taken, they must work to get them back but all is not what it seems. People you think you can trust, turn against you and then you find out why. Plus there is the mystery of what happened to Seth, Phoebe’s brother.
These questions will be answered and by t

For me any paranormal book set in New Orleans is a hit, I call it the Anne Rice effect. And this story doesn't disappoint for a second. Phoebe is a bad*ss witch working for the government as a vampire hunter. Yes, in this world big brother is aware of the supernatural creatures and has it's own agency to deal with them and keep them in line. Phoebe's best friends get kidnapped because they are fae. She and her werewolf, sometimes boyfriend but always partner, Dax undergo a mission to beat the fo ...more

I have been provided with a copy of Soulless at Sunset by the author for an impartial review. This is the first book in the Last Witch Standing series and I just loved getting to reenter this world with Phoebe and her friends. This book just dragged me in and I was so disappointed when I turned the last page I just didn’t want it to end.

An excellent beginning to a new series! Phoebe and Willow and friends are off on an adventure of sorts. Pandora and Alcott are involved and not so very nice shifters and vampires. There is a mystery when some of Phoebe friends/ family go missing. Someone Phoebe loves will resurface but with a twist at the end leave some unanswered questions. Read this excellent story! I look forward to the next book in the series!

This is a spin off of the Crescent City Faes series and I was so excited to read this first book if a new series. This book did not disappoint either. I got to meet some new characters and revisited with other from the Crescent City books. Loved this story and how the strongest in that series experienced being on the opposite end of the spectrum in this book. Very entertaining! Can't wait for the next book to come out. ...more

I read the prequel which I loved and hoped that the start of a new series by Deanna would live up to its great start and it definitely did. If you enjoy adventure, mystery, suspense set up in a paranormal world than this book and series is for you. This is a book I had a hard time putting down as it is fast paced and full of action and intrigue. Please read this book as I know you will highly enjoy.

Last witch standing series.

This is a new author for me to enjoy who has an excellent beginning story to a new series. It has a mysterious abduction, a hot ex who is difficult to resist, a battle brewing between vamps and shifters. Exciting and very entertaining. I already bought books 2 & 3 in the series. Ends in an HEA with HFN cause there is a thread of excitement running into book 2.

Soulless at Sunset (Last Witch Standing Book 1) didn't disappoint. Several characters from the Crescent City Fae series are back in another story of mystery, magic, romance and kidnappings. A fast moving book that makes the reader long for the next story. Vamps, shifters and witches. I do love Deanna Chase's story telling. ...more

Great story filled with lots of action and mystery. Wonderful mix of paranormal species and strong characters. Phoebe and Dax make a kickass couple and their relationship is lusty and loving. So looking forward to future installments. Meanwhile, I’ll go back and read The Crescent City Fae series to see where it all began.

Another great story

I really enjoyed the story and all the characters. It was captivating and hard to put down as the story unfolded. I did not expect some of the twists and turns which I really appreciated. The writing style is terrific and I know from past readings I will be very satisfied.

A lot to take in.

this is a fast paced book. You really need to pay attention to what is going on. You see some friends you meet in other books along with some new interesting ones. This was a fight as old as time. It was a great story I enjoyed. I hope to read the other ones soon.

Intriguing Story

Kidnapping the city's head vampires love, not good. Kidnapping two of the city's Fae, triple the amount of vengeance. It's a race not just to save the victims but to save an entire city from an unknown evil. Friendships, partnerships, and relationships are all on the line as well. Action packed.

Wow, just Wow. I love a good paranormal story and Phoebe and Dax are one hell of a team. The streets of New Orleans are filled with Vampires, shifter Wolves and Witches. Some work for the greater good and some are just plain evil. When Phoebe best friend and her husband are taken she will stop at nothing to get her back. So sit back and fasten your seatbelt.
