Wicked As They Come
Have you ever heard of a Bludman? They’re rather like you and me—only more fabulous, immortal, and mostly indestructible. (They’re also very good kissers.)
Delilah S. Dawson’s darkly tempting debut drops her unsuspecting heroine into a strange faraway land for a romantic adventure that’s part paranormal, part steampunk . . . and completely irresistible.
When Tish Everett forces open the ruby locket she finds at an estate sale, she has no idea that a deliciously rakish Bludman has cast a spell just for her. She wakes up in a surreal world, where Criminy Stain, the dashing proprietor of a magical traveling circus, curiously awaits. At Criminy’s electric touch, Tish glimpses a tantalizing future, but she also foresees her ultimate doom. Before she can decide whether to risk her fate with the charming daredevil, the locket disappears, and with it, her only chance to return home. Tish and Criminy battle roaring sea monsters and thundering bludmares, vengeful ghosts and crooked Coppers in a treacherous race to recover the necklace from the evil Blud-hating Magistrate. But if they succeed, will Tish forsake her fanged suitor and return to her normal life, or will she take a chance on an unpredictable but dangerous destiny with the Bludman she’s coming to love?
First off, WOW! Did I mention WOW?? I did not want to put this one down at all! I absolutely love the world that Delilah S. Dawson has created. Sang is such a bizarre mixture of magic, mayhem, monsters, and romance.
What seems all cute and cuddly turns out to be blood thirsty. And what seems to be dark and dangerous turns out to be the most romantic of them all! You don’t know what is around the next corner.
One thing I have to say about this book is to expect the unexpected. It was highly unpredictable and fun to read. According to her webpage, this is the first in a set of 3 books. I can’t wait for the next one!!
