"Lots of Sex! Funny! Lots of sex! Faeries!! Sex!!"
Sundown, Inc. is a collection of four stories by Cat
Marsters, a very interesting woman if her fiction is any
clue. It seems Sundown, Inc. is a group comprised of a
wizard, a sex fae, a lovely vampire and a werewolf mother
of three. Go figure....
"She Who Dares" is a tale of Masila, an Egyptian-age
vampire who is assigned an assassination. Not just anyone,
mind you; a soldier she remembers from her teen years who
has followed her through the ages in hopes of winning her
love. Will she break her contract and save Dare's life?
Or will he lose his head and her love?
"Blue Moon", a short novel of Magda, mother of three who is
attacked one night at full moon. Her attacker is like her
but not...he is a loup ga'rou - a possessed werewolf who
has no memory of the three days every month he is a
berserker. Does Magda dare trust Elek with her children?
Is there a way to break his curse? Does wizard Con have a
plan and if he does, will it work???
In "What Wizards Want", the afore-mentioned Con breaks a
fish float he is using as a crystal ball since he; well,
broke that, too. He doesn't know it has imprisoned a human
pirate for over 300 years and that Lily, sexy enough when
young, hasn't been around a man in all that time. They
stand up to a royal of the Unseelie Court with the help of
Aura, sex fae that she is, and sail off to find not only
Lily's treasure but possible love in Barbados.
And then we have Aura, sex fae extraordinaire. In "Baby
Sham Faery" one of her best friends is the only surviving
royal of the Seelie Court and the world will lose its
seasons if he doesn't produce an heir. No problem!
Wrong!!! Ell is over the top, flamingly gay. His lover the
centaur Tadgh, however, is bi and that is all it will take
to set Aura off on a grand plan to find Ell a girlfriend.
Not as easy as it sounds...
This was....interesting...I actually thought the stories
were hysterically funny for the most part but - brace
yourself! - I thought there was too much sex. While I
certainly like a sexy tale as much as anyone, this was
overdone. That said, I would really like to read some more
about Sundown, Inc.
