1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing compared to Dancing With Werewolves, March 10, 2009
This review is from: Brimstone Kiss (Delilah Street, Paranormal Investigator) (Mass Market Paperback)
I'm not sure what changed so much from the first book, Dancing with Werewolves, to this one, but I didn't like Brimstone Kiss at all. It was blah and boring. It lacked the pizazz of the first book. As Brimstone Kiss jumps right in without covering any background, reading Dancing with Werewolves first is an absolute must. The only problem with that is that Dancing with Werewolves was a much better book - full of action, mystery, and an interesting new world. This time around, I felt that Delilah and Rick's "love" was not believable. There was lots of story-building and mystery, but very little action. Almost nothing was resolved from what was left open in the first book, so the plot seemed repetitious and mind-numbingly slow.

Nightwine is still Delilah's landlord. The enchanted cottage still has a mirror that shows the dead. Delilah can still travel through mirrors. Delilah and Rick are still investigating the identities of the skeleton couple from the park. Howard Hughes the vampire still has the hots for Delilah. Snow still wants to give Delilah the Brimstone Kiss. She's still looking for her CSI actress doppelganger, Lilith. The only new theme, hidden Egyptian stuff under Las Vegas, (seen it written better elsewhere) was dry and unimaginative. I felt like banging my head against a wall (but didn't). Even killer zombie mummies couldn't revive the book, since the "fight" scenes were too simple and quick.
