it was amazing

So the devil goes down to Ponong and sets up castle, taking a mistress named Qui Tai.
He's big and bad, and sometimes downright mean which should be a sign for Qui Tai to run as far as she can in what ever direction will take her the farthest from the Petrof, but she's not the kind of heroine to run away from a good challenge. Especially when she's got her own nasty agenda.

But first, she has a mystery to solve involving an old lover (something that isn't making Petrof, real happy.) One she might not survive.

This really is a strange mix, it's a thriller/mystery set in fantasy world with werewolves and other mythical creatures. Even Qui Tai is a cross between a human and a snake, making her almost perfect for the devil. Petrof is actually more of a Mafioso type who has taken over an island to run his criminal enterprise from. Qui Tai. is reluctant at first to get involved with her former lover and his nebulous mystery, and it soon becomes very clear why.

I really liked Qui Tai. She's cast as this bad-woman who likes the abuse she gets under the devil, but we soon see the gooey inside of her and the reason why. Girl's got protect herself, and besides, you just love rooting for her to kick some serious butt under the ole devil's nose.

I highly recommend this, and it's not just the well drawn setting, or the exotic characters, but how Author Jill Braden weaves her tale. Her prose is excellent. You're literally sucked into this adventure and will pout when it's finished. Good thing, there is second book already out...
