Series Mercedes Thompson #2

Stefan, Mercy's Mystery Machine bus-driving vampire friend, asks her for a favor. She owed him after the events of the last book so she reluctantly agrees. Mercy goes with Stefan to a hotel to meet with a vampire that entered the area without checking in with the queen first. Stefan asks Mercy to accompany him as a coyote in a harness and to act as his pet, she's merely supposed to be part of his costume so he can intimidate the other vampire. Once they get to the hotel though they realize that things aren't as they seem. The hotel is all but empty and Mercy smells something amiss. The creature they meet there isn't just any vampire and Mercy, Stefan, and the rest of her close friends all get thrown into a conflict with a being more evil than they could have imagined.

I picked this book up because Series

What I liked the Most? The characters

What I liked the Least? The plethora of “odd” beings

Review: Gotta say I’m glad I gave number 2 a chance because it was much much better. The story felt like it was complete and not just a great big old introduction. I love that all the “local” characters got “screen” time in this story too.

While I enjoyed the story & the writing – I feel like this was a one up type book and because she started with all the “normal” paranormals there isn’t any where else to go. So add demons & ghosts & renfields to the mix. I did like the way that Gabriel said hey if you’ve got werewolves then logic says there should be vampires.

Best Quote: Never trust a mechanic who drives new cars. They're either charging too much money for their work, or they can't keep an old car running - maybe both
