Book Description

August 25, 2010 Dulcie O'Neil
The murder of a dark arts warlock. A shape-shifting, ravenous creature on the loose. A devilishly handsome stranger sent to investigate. Sometimes working law enforcement for the Netherworld is a real bitch. Dulcie O'Neil is a fairy. And not the type to frolic in gardens. She's a Regulator-a law-enforcement agent who monitors the creatures of the Netherworld to keep them from wreaking havoc in the mortal world. When a warlock is murdered and Dulcie was the last person to see him alive, she must uncover the truth before she's either deported back to the Netherworld, or she becomes the next victim. Enter Knight Vander, a sinfully attractive investigator sent from the Netherworld to work the case with Dulcie. Between battling her attraction to her self-appointed partner, keeping a sadomasochistic demon in check, and fending off the advances of a sexy and powerful vampire, Dulcie's got her hands full. As the body count increases, Dulcie finds herself battling dark magic, reconnoitering in S&M clubs and suffering the greatest of all betrayals.

About the Author

I am an avid reader and writer of paranormal romance and urban fantasy. I'm passionate about anything that goes bump in the night and my books certainly reflect this. I like to think of my writing as a blend of suspense, horror, romance and humor with a sprinkle of fantasy to tie everything together! About me: I grew up in California although I've lived abroad in the UK (England and Scotland). I started writing seriously about two years ago while I was living in Cambridge, England. Some of the places I've visited figure prominently in my stories and the UK is no exception. Please visit my website for more information about me and my books:

4.0 out of 5 stars Murders, monsters and kick-ass fairies October 16, 2010
Format:Kindle Edition
This is a solid urban fantasy with strong elements of romance. The story follows the independent, hard-working and crime-busting Dulcie as she polices the Netherworld and handles illegal trafficking, murder, and more. But Dulcie's routine is thrown into disarray when a warlock is murdered and she's the last person to have seen him alive. Dulcie must crack the case, fast--and it remains to be seen whether the sinfully attractive investigator Knight Vander will help or hinder her cause. Between fighting her attracting for Knight, hunting a roaming monster, and handling a scheming vampire, will Dulcie capture the murderer in time?

While I was a little hesitant about the cover of Fire Burn, this cover caught my eye and held it, perhaps because Dulcie is much more my kind of protagonist than Jolie is. Dulcie is a go-getter, a strong female character with a mind of her own and the ability to fight her own battles. As a fairy, she's blessed with supernatural speed and, of course, the magic of fairy dust--a power which, to my delight, is rather originally handled in this novel.

I suppose "original" would be the best way to describe the world-building, too. While there were many familiar elements -- witches and vampires and fairies -- Mallory has created a fresh twist on the paranormal, viewed through the eyes of a snarky, entertaining heroine. The plot itself is often light-hearted (the story begins with Dulcie being turned into a slime monster) but isn't afraid of the darker side too; what with murders and betrayals, this story has just the right mix of romance and suspense to make it a perfect weekend read.

1.0 out of 5 stars Oh man what happened to my faith in reviews? May 20, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
You know that old saying "I was robbed"? That's what I feel like after spending a few hours reading this book. Weak, weak, so very weak.

I rely heavily on amazon reviewers alerting me to new authors. I'm obsessive about going thru other reviewers list of reviews, to see if we share book taste in common. I rely on a book being good if it's recd more than 100 reviews and still staying at 4 stars. Boy was this one ever the exception that proves the rule.

Bad, bad, bad. Very exceptionally weak writing. It felt like the author was really conflicted about who her heroine needed to be. I think she had the potential for two or even three completely separate books and mashed them into one. I was so confused by this heroine and who she was.

And the heroine was, too! How can she be this kick ass regulator, yet squeamish when in the middle of an S&M club? I was way underwhelmed with her backbone. There just wasn't one.

Finally, FOUR guys with the hots for her? That has to be a new record. And why? Absolutely no clue as to why.

Please don't waste your time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great, fun read! August 7, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This was a fun, fast paced, smart, romance, paranormal read!! Loved the characters. I don't know why amazon isn't charging for Mallory's books, because even as a cheap skate, I would definitely pay full price for these! Totally hooked, about to read the next in the series! Can't wait to see what misadventures our fairy heroine gets herself into next!
Even though these are fictional characters, I felt kinship with the characters, like I could see any woman - fairy or not - do, think, and feel the same things Dulcie does. Great read!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Book July 20, 2010
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
H.P. Mallory continues her success as a superb Urban Fantasy author with her sophomore book, To Kill A Warlock. Full of humor, intrigue, romance and betrayal of the ultimate kind, Mallory pulled me in from the beginning. Mallory creates a fantastical world where supernatural creatures thrive. The beginning of the book had me charmed and laughing, the end had me sitting on the edge of my seat. Dulcie is a heroine readers will immediately relate to and cheer for until the end.
