When terrorists hit a chemical plant the last thing they're expecting is to cause a massive mutation of the Louisiana delta's fairy population. Lesson learned a little too late for the people who call the delta home. Now the fairies have a taste for human blood and if their venom doesn't cause a massive, deadly allergic reaction it'll drive you mad. The tiny percentage of the population who are immune get stuck slogging through fairy infested swamps to deal with things the rest of folks can't. from researching the little monsters to investigating Breeze houses. Oh yeah, fairy poo and a little bleach make Breeze, a drug that rivals ecstasy for popularity.

Enter Annabelle Lee, a little lazy, at risk for a DUI most of the time and one of Donaldsonville, Louisiana's immune. When a local child is found murdered outside the iron fence that seperates D'ville from the fairy infested bayou she gets sucked into the investigation quicker than she can drain a rum and coke. As if that wasn't complicated enough her current beau, Cane Cooper, is one of the DPD cops on the case and the FBI sends in a team to aid him... a team that consists of a hard-assed female agent and her partner Hitch, Annabelle's ex.

Trying to be professional with her ex and sort out her feelings for her current boyfriend is complicated but the investigation gets even more crazy when Annabelle discovers a Breeze house out in the bayou and an arrest is made for the little girl's murder. Strange stuff keeps happening to Annabelle and if she's going to get to the bottom of this murder mystery to save the day she just might have to lay off the hooch and avoid getting dead herself.

As the great debate of paranormal romance versus urban fantasy races on it's easy to start drawing lines in the sand.

This debut novel by Stacey Jay is really quite different from any book I've read in the past. In that respect, I have to give Ms. Jay lots of applause - she definitely has created a new and unique world, with a heroine not commonly found in urban fantasy. .

In the world Ms. Jay has created fairies are not sweet, light creatures that float around and grant wishes - they are the terrors of the modern world - one bite causing a horrible, painful death or insanity. The fairies are so scarey that entire towns have built a network of iron fencing around their entire town, anchoring from houses and buildings in order to keep the fairies out and the humans safe inside. For whatever the reason, only 5% of the population is immune to fairies and these individuals do anything that remotely involves fairies. Enter our heroine, Annabelle Lee, who is one such human. Annabelle has been called out to the swamp because of the murder of a small child. Fairies are suspected or at least will be around, so Annabelle is in charge of hair, tissue samples and investigation of the crime scene. The rest of the book revolves around Annabelle's two love interests, her search for the killer, and a resolution of an incident in the swamp that she inadvertantly caused.

The very reasons that others have liked this story are basically the reasons I don't. Annabelle is a drunken trainwreck of a heroine - she is scared of emotional committments, self absorbed, lazy and tragic beyond belief. This would all be fine if there were redeeming qualities about Annabelle. I found maybe one - and wasn't sure about that one. Annabelle is a heroine I was fairly disgusted with and by.

Dead On The Delta by Stacey Jay is the first in this new UF series. The Deep South becomes aware they are surrounded by fairies when a chemical disaster causes a mutation in the fairies and gives them an insatiable appetite for human blood. Whole families are attacked and swarmed upon, you either die right away or go insane. Louisiana, Alabama & Mississippi are ironed-off from the rest of the country and the people who have not been killed off or *contained* flee north.

Enter Annabelle Lee, a med-school dropout who is working for the FCC, that's stands for Fairy Control & Containment, who gathers samples for the FCC which includes fairy eggs, fairy poo and swamp water samples. Not a great job, but Annabelle opts out of life in general. Lazy in her work, drinking and taking sleeping pills to excess to dull the pain of her past. She is immune to fairy venom, which is what makes the general population die or go insane. If you survive a bite you are sent to Kessler AF Base in Mississippi and you never see the light of day ever again. The immune humans generally work in some sort of field that deals with the fairies. They tread where the rest cannot go. Because of this immunity Annabelle is called upon by the Donaldsonville Louisiana DPD to gather evidence and retrieve bodies on the other side of the iron containment field. It is such a call that starts this story. A young girl is found dead in the swamp and she must muster her courage to do what's right for this little girl who happens to be the largest plantation owners daughter. Annabelle's boyfriend, Cane Cooper, who is part of the police force, calls her to the scene and watches behind the iron while she vomits all over the crime scene and tries to retrieve the body.
