"I have never met a funnier or more charming vampire than Dell!"
Dell is a vampire and also an agent in the Preternatural
Special Forces. Dell is a young vampire, at only twenty
five, and he is also very powerful and well trained. His
next mission is a double. He has to do a huge drug bust in
Las Vegas with his new partner, Alex. Alex may be Sophie,
one of the Chosen, and Dell must discover her true
identity, keep her safe, and bring her home, all the while
maintaining their cover in the drug bust.
Sounds serious, doesn't it? I thought so! Imagine my
delight and surprise when I discovered that this story is
told by Dell, and his commentary brought about several
amusing scenes and loads of charm in the most unexpected
places. Although he is a vampire, he doesn't sound or act
like I expected, making Dell quite a refreshing change of
Alex also seemed to be a contradiction. She is a tough
lady as an agent, wielding her gun; she is also
breathtakingly beautiful and outspoken, yet she is a virgin
and extremely shy in some sexual situations and bold in
others. I never knew quite what to expect from her, but I
knew that it would be good.
Dell's and Alex's mission in Las Vegas started out huge and
seemed to promise lots of action, but kind of sputtered out
under the heat of Dell and Alex and the test that confirmed
who Alex truly is. There were also a couple other small
things happening here and there, which dealt more with
Dell's family history and not much with Dell and Alex.
However, through it all, Samantha Somersby kept the passion
and Dell's witty commentary up, making this an excellent
read that I am highly recommending. Bravo!
