Review: Great Hexpectations by H.P. Mallory

SPOILER ALERT: If you haven’t read To Kill a Warlock or A Tale of Two Goblins, you may want to hold off on reading this review!

A misunderstanding turned deadly.
A fairy in law enforcement who won't stop until the truth is uncovered.
A vampire who seems to be her ally but appearances can be deceiving
And a partner who would put his own life on the line to defend hers.

Dulcie O'Neil knows she's at fault for failing to arrest a wanted criminal but when her partner gets pinned for the crime, she'll stop at nothing to ensure his innocence.”

Remember the complaint I had in A Tale of Two Goblins that Dulcie just wouldn’t give in and make up her mind on a man? Scratch that, not only is her mind made up but she doesn’t disappoint us with her decision of the sexy Loki, Knightly Vander. After the sacrifices he made for her in the last book, we can understand why. However, after a pretty intense argument between the two of them, Knight disappears. And Dulcie must find a way to get to the Netherworld to save him before he gets murdered for a crime he didn’t commit.

H.P. manages to pull it off again with Great Hexpectations. I laughed, I cried, I gasped in "WHAT? THAT DID NOT JUST HAPPEN!".

My rating for this book:

Some great things you can look forward to in this book are more of the same great characters along with an introduction of a new ANC badass. There will be twists and turns, introductions to a whole new world and even the "L" word from Mrs. O'Neal herself! You think that sounds good? Wait until the last page. H.P. has given us an ending that will have you tripping over yourself to buy book 4, Wuthering Frights.

Note: There is a bit of sex, language and even the possibility of rape so if that offends you, here's your warning.
