Lady Cordelia Macbeth who would rather be called Dee, is mourning the loss of her son Hamilton. Hamilton you see had gone for a joyride in a stolen/borrowed vehicle and was killed quicker than you can say gesundheit!
She is so grief stricken that she contemplates suicide and throws herself into the ocean. Of course I realize that is not hilarious at all but luckily there was a pissed off octopus woman at the bottom of the ocean who was able to give Dee the ability to breathe underwater until the mossy brown and green mud horse showed up to take her back to the surface. Not that either of these occurrences were the most shocking things she saw under the ocean but I wouldn't want to give away too much. Now Dee was not too keen on telling anyone about these escapades, however when the mud horse showed up at her best friend Rhonda's house it kind of spilled the beans. I will leave you here, because if I told you more you wouldn't believe me anyway. It is probably best that you discover these quirky characters for yourself. I was up all night reading this story.
I received an advance copy of this book through the kindle scout program and was under no obligation to review it.
She has her friend Rhonda, who calls her Lady Dee, a REALLY old captain, and the Dewey Decimal System on her side. Angus, the stranger who kissed her back to consciousness, is the unknown. Can she prevail against the sea hag, who has already taken precious pieces of her heart from Lady MacBeth?
Action, adventure, mythology, and a quirky heroine make Kelpie Dreams a wonderful read.
I was originally going to try and post this before it was released to the public on May 10th but then drama and hey, at least I’m still doing it.
I’m not sure what I was expecting when I opened this, but more sass than you can shake your homemade picket-cross at was not it. Kelpie Dreams follows high school librarian and former hit woman, Lady Dee” Cordelia Macbeth, as she deals with the grief from her son’s booger induced death. Unable to cope, Dee goes to where her son died, to plant a homemade pick across and I kill herself. Drowning in the ocean didn’t go nearly as well she planned. Instead of drowning, Dee finds and battles a local sea hag, and meets a muddy horse. With the help of her best friend, a lesbian, professional hit woman named Rhonda, Dee tries to figure out just what is going on, and why during the undersea battle she grew a tail.
There’s a little bit for almost everyone in this book, so long as you enjoy sass and somewhat crude humor. You’ll find lesbian flirtation, characters long dead, not-so-subtle romantic interests with not so human backgrounds. Plenty of action, plenty of guns. There is even plenty of jazz hands, just in case that was what you’re looking for.
I give this book a solid five out of five stolen/borrowed neon yellow Audis.
Vernon is a fabulous writer who weaves in and out of the story, bringing the reader along as he does so, offering backstory information and details about the past lives of his paranormal characters. What I loved most about the story is that Vernon found a way to create a story with no barriers, where anything can happen, without it seeming impossible or implausible.
This is the first of Vernon's books I've read, but it definitely won't be the last! I'm glad to know he has fifty more books for me to peruse.
