Review: To Kill A Warlock by H.P. Mallory


"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."
One of my favorite things about To Kill A Warlock were the characters. Duclie O'Neal is a kick ass Regulator who also writes books on the side. But not just any kind of book, the one she's focusing on has to do particularly with a bit of frisky and pirates.Then you have Bram, Knight and Quill, all 3 extremely sexy men with a different purpose and a beautiful depth that not just anyone could pull off, but H.P. does. You will find yourself drooling over each of them at one point or the other but you don't get lost in it.

The beginning was one of the funniest starts to a book that I've ever read. This is actually a picture of a comic that H.P. would like to complete, I found this on her website which is linked to below.


 And the ending is one that will leave your heart racing, wrenching and spinning all confused and misjumbled.

Overall, I felt the book was enjoyable though felt really slow at times. To Kill A Warlock had nice new way to express law enforcement and H.P. does a fantastic job of creating a world that you will keep wanting more of.

My rating for this book:
H.P. Mallory is a writer for urban fantasy and paranormal romance books. She is a writer, a friend and an inspiration to many people. You can reach her at:
