A Tale Of Two Goblins Review + Giveaway

Title: A Tale of Two Goblins (Dulcie book #2)
Author: H.P. Mallory
Publisher: Independent
Source: Bought via Smashwords
Kindle Lending: Enabled

Please note, this is book 2 in the Dulcie O'Neil series. Book 1 is To Kill A Warlock

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 combatting 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.

First off its no secret that I am in love with H.P. Mallory's writing and if you have ever read one of her books you will know why. All of her books take an original take on age old favorites in the paranormal and romance genres. She brings her books alive in ways I have never seen done before. If you haven't read one of her books... what are you waiting for?

Dulcie is a fairy that has retired from law enforcement in order to write a book. Although she has retired that doesn't mean she is out of the line of danger. Someone or something is putting people Dulce has known throughout her life into comas. Comas in which one person has already died from. When Dulcie's best friend is attacked and placed in a coma, she will stop at nothing to find the son of a bitch behind it. Even break some laws and reunite with an old friend. Oh did I mention Dulcie also has a super hot partner! Who is head over heels for her but Dulce can't help but fight her feelings for her.

I love how Dulcie is an independent and kick ass chick. She doesn't need to rely on anyone but herself and I love that! For once we don't have a belly aching, whining female lead. I do kind of wish that we saw a bit more happen between Knight and Dulcie in this book. I feel that it needed just a little more premise on the two main characters developing their relationship more. I felt that the relationship between the two was a little bit down played in this book compared to the last but I still absolutely loved the story line and how the story developed.

I was able to read A Tale Of Two Goblins in a couple hours, that was with making some lollipops in between lol. I just couldn't put the book down. It was one thrill after another. Packed full of action and adventure, with no shortage of paranormal creatures. Its everything I was waiting for and more!

I LOVED this book! I have been waiting since I finished the end of To Kill A Warlock for this book. H.P. Mallory is amazing with cliff hangers! and this book is no exception, it has left me wanting more. I can not wait for the next book in this series... and I have no doubt that it will be just as good as A Tale Of Two Goblins if not better! Go pick up a copy of A Tale Of Two Goblins!
