This is what I’m going to start doing for my adult reviews of books that are later in a series (first in a series will be a more full length review). Because I don’t want it to be spoilery for the previous books in the series I won’t include descriptions and I’ll be vague about plot points. Mostly talking about character development and if I’m happy with how the series is turning out.
A Tale of Two Goblins (Dulcie O’Neil #2) by H.P. Mallory
Adult Urban Fantasy/ Paranormal Romance
Published March 21st, 2011
I read the first book over a year ago but then my ereader broke before I got a chance to read the second one. So as soon as I got a kindle this was the first book I started reading on it. And I was very glad to be transported to Dulcie’s world once again.
I have a bit of a love/hate relationship with Dulcie. I like her and I think she’s totally kick ass and is about the best friend a girl could have, but she can be a bit annoying with her determination to not fall in love with any man. I just wish she would stop being so determined to say no! But on the other hand some of the men are a bit forward with her and that would be kind of annoying after awhile as well. Overall the romance aspect of the book wasn’t really my thing even though I can say I totally think the romantic interest is H.O.T. I just needed them to do it already! I do think that the next book may make me happier in the romance department though.
I really enjoyed the mystery and while there weren’t really enough clues to really figure it out it was fun watching it all unfold. And stressful because your just waiting for something horrible to happen. But somehow these books aren’t dark and scary, Dulcie definitely lightens them up and keeps them fun even when horrible and scary things are happening.
H.P. Mallory is a great writer and I’m anxious to read more by her. I love the world she’s created in this series and am curious how her other series is. I’ll definitely be continuing this series as well, I’m dying to see where things are going to go now!
