A Tale of Two Goblins

Series:Dulcie O' Neil
Publisher:H. P. Mallory
Publication Date: March 21, 2011
How Recieved:For Review
Summary: 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.

My thoughts:
Wow. This book blew my mind. A Tale of Two Goblins picks up two months after the events of To Kill a Warlock. The start of the book has a very romantic feel to it. Then 30 pages in, the action starts, and really doesn't stop until the end of the novel. Dulcie becomes smarter and cooler during the events that occur throughout the book. She is super cool and relatable, and she has a very important trait- she makes a lot of mistake. But she always learns from them. Knight, Quillan, and Bram get even funnier, a new character is introduced, and Sam and Dulcie's friendship increases greatly. Even if you haven't read the first book in the seres, A Tale of Two Goblins is a fun and highly enjoyable read, and you should definitely give it a try.

Great review. I'm glad you enjoyed the book :) I really loved the emotion and dynamics between the characters in this book and I was definitely Team Knight. Although, Bram could definitely sway me LOL

HP's books are all great! I am really enjoy reading this series. I love all of the different depths of the book; it can go from romantic to dark to light and funny and back again. A perfect escape. Can't wait for the next one!
