Book Blurb: A Dreamstalker— a creature that stalks and kills its victims in sleep.

A fairy in law enforcement determined to stop him.

A potions smuggler who possesses something she wants.

A vampire with his own agenda.

And a partner who couldn’t possibly be sexier or more frustrating.

Dulcie O’Neil is a fairy working in law enforcement for the Netherworld.

When Knight Vander approaches her with a case regarding comatose victims, she agrees to help him, imagining the most difficult part will be combating her attraction to him.

But, what Dulcie isn’t betting on is the fact that the case becomes personal when she learns all the victims are somehow linked to her.

When her best friend falls victim to the Dreamstalker, Dulcie must do everything in her power to ensure her friend’s survival, including associating with criminals and accepting the fact that desperate times do definitely call for desperate measures

Review: It isn't often the case that the second book in a series is so much better than the first, but in this case, it is true. It is just a shame that A Tale Of Two Goblins is much shorter than the first book. This story could have really gone on for another hundred pages and I would have been happy.


We got to know Dulcie better, and we found out...she is likable, even though she's a bit of a curmudgeoun! This book really shows us that Dulcie has a heart. Sure she's gorgeous. Sure she'll kick some ass when it is called for, but in A Tale Of Two Goblins we see she really has feelings for most of thecharacters that were introduced in To Kill A Warlock.

That's why this book is so much better. Dulcie's crankiness has a focus. She isn't just taking out all her frustrations on all the gorgeous men that want in her pants this time. She's taking out her frustrations on the Dreamstalker that is trying to get to her friends and maybe even her!

Here's hoping H.P. Mallory has another installment coming soon, because if the books get better as the series goes on, Dulcie O'Neil is going to be my new favorite heroine!
