Dancing with Werewolves is really different.
Lead protagonist Delilah Street has a great character, and as we see events from her view, we are carried along by her witticisms, humour and occasional sadness. Delilah grew up in an orphanage, and when the Millennium Revelation took place, all the paranormal creatures came to light.
In Delilah's world, there are vampires, werewolves, and just about any other creature you can imagine, all working within their own agendas and usually to be feared and avoided. Delilah has discovered that her looks - pale skin, dark hair - are a magnet for vampires, but this is only the beginning of her problems.
Delilah finds herself having to leave her job as a reporter in Kansas and travel to Las Vegas to find out why her
doppelgänger was autopsied on
Las Vegas CSI. When she approaches Hector Nightwine, the producer of the TV series, she finds herself meeting a whole lot of new people - Quicksilver, the large dog; Ric Montoya, the cadaver dowser; Snow, the rock star; Gerald, the butler; and more. Delilah's world gets more and more strange as she begins to discover certain talents
within herself relating to mirrors and silver. As she tries to get to the bottom of her
doppelgänger's death, she finds herself in the middle of a Las Vegas power struggle. The story twists and turns, with the reader never quite knowing what
will happen next. Delilah is a brilliant character to follow as she finds herself in tricky situations.
Despite the theoretically dark subject matter, this is almost always a light read with Delilah's amusing thoughts running alongside the action and events. The romance side of the novel is understated, the supernatural element significant, but the overall effect is a great read. I imagine this is the first of many stories about Delilah Street, Paranormal Investigator, and it's an enjoyable beginning.
