"great original witty story"
Vampire P.I. Felix Gomez has been called to Charleston to do
some work for a werewolf. Unfortunately the job would mean
he would be getting involved in a civil war between the
local rival werewolf clans. Felix is ready to walk away from
the job, go back home and ignore the whole thing when
someone decides to try and kill him. Felix doesn't like
having attempts made on his life so he chooses to hang
around a little longer.
One thing leads to another and before Felix knows what has
happened he is mixed up in the war he was trying to ignore.
An ex-girlfriend is also on the scene and an vampire enemy
he thought was dust is annoying him. How Felix manages to
get into these situations is beyond him but he can only hope
that once again he comes out of it with all his body parts
and still alive enough to drink blood.
The fifth book in the Felix Gomez series opens up with a
werewolf head in a Tupperware container. The surreal and
fantastic story just gets better and better from there on.
With a giggle and laugh guaranteed in each chapter, this is
not only funny but male friendly. There aren't many books in
the paranormal genre that appeal to the men out there but
this one is definitely a book you can read yourself and pass
on to the guy in your life.
Werewolf Smackdown is another great original witty story in
this unusual but gripping series. While the books so far
haven't come across werewolves before there have been many
other paranormal surprises in the previous installments.
With each book you can only ask what amazing things the
author still has left in store for us. I for one want to
It is hard to find anything to compare this series to. Jim
Butcher does so well with the Dresden Files but it is
lacking the comedy that Mario brings out through Felix. If
anything this is the vampiric version of the Douglas Adams
Dirk Gently series and is even similar to the Nightside
books by Simon R. Green. However at the end of the day it
doesn't matter what to expect from this series. You should
expect the unexpected, laugh, enjoy and go back for more. I
