Old actors never die shouldn’t be literally true.
Carrington Loveless III, skim-blood vampire and senior officer of Philly’s paranormal police department, has long suspected that someone’s targeting his squad. The increasingly bizarre and dangerous entities invading their city can’t be a coincidence. So when a walking corpse spouting Oscar Wilde attacks one of his officers, Carrington’s determined to uncover the evil mind behind it all.
As a rare books librarian, Erasmus Graham thought he understood some of the stranger things in life. Sharing a life with Carrington’s shown him he didn’t know the half of it. They’ve survived attack books and deadly dust bunnies together and got through mostly unscathed.
Now his world and his vampire’s appear ready to collide again. Books are missing from the rare books’ collection—old tomes of magic containing dangerous summonings and necromancy. He’s certain whoever’s been stalking the Seventy-Seventh is composing their end game.
It’s going to take a consolidated effort from paranormal police, librarians, and some not-quite-authorized civilians to head off the impending catastrophe.
Unfortunately I think this is a book best read as part of the series and I haven’t done that L
What I see sounds intriguing and definitely unique and funny, but I was kinda lost and never really got immersed in this story.
I was intrigued by the librarian and didn’t read far enough to realize that I probably should have been reading the other books first… so.
I’m not going to rate this as that’s not a fair representation, but I’d go ahead and recommend it to fans of the author/series – so long as they’ve been reading along in order. This seems like a funny, unique series and I’m going to be going back to book one to look at it closer!
