In the Weird, Wild West…
Delilah’s quest for vengeance is forestalled as she seeks weapons potent enough to confront her enemies… and secrets of the occult world of which she is now a part. In Mexico, she meets with a mexican witch, called a bruja, to gain what she requires… but the bruja’s help comes with a price. Recruited to stage a jailbreak, Delilah’s quest, and world, get larger as she travels through southern Mexico seeking a lost civilization to help a god ascend to his power.
This is a dark fantasy, weird west erotic novella. It contains violence and sexual situations and is meant for mature audiences only and is 33,000+ words.
Satan’s balls, this is a damn good series and so far, The Bruja and the Beast is my favorite. I got the perfect mix of story, sex and adventure with a little bit of teasing about things to come! A lot of things were revealed in this one, but only enough to let you know that there is a lot more adventure waiting for us. Honestly… I’m considering pulling a Misery move on Alana Melos and making her finish this serious out as soon as possible.
Delilah is still trying to track gang of supernatural men that killed her family. She is also determined to learn more about herself and understand her powers and limitations. Delilah is now traveling with Cèlia to Cèlia’s grandmothers, Marguerite (bruja or witch) house in hopes of learning how to kill these supernatural gang she is tracking. So, Marguerite can actually help Delilah but she needs her to do something for her first. She must free Nicolás from jail and bring him back to her, unharmed. Ready to move forward with Delilah’s own goals, she agrees.
“Changing a point of view is the first lesson of the spirits and the start of learning to bend the world to your will. You see the world as you wish it, then use your will to make the change.”
Once Nicolás is free, he has his own agenda for Delilah which turn out to be really enlightening, especially when he brings his friend Rose, along. That’s all I’m going to say about that. I don’t want to give away any of the juicy details. And, no… that is not a innuendo for sex. It’s actually plot details that is moving this story in amazing and epic ways.
Azazel makes a few appearances and he is still a horny and sexy devil. I’m still uncertain about what kind of game he is playing. He is a shady fucker and I don’t trust him. Actually, I don’t trust anybody! Everyone has their own shit and seem to be in it for their own gain.
There is some sexy time in this book, but Delilah is “trying” to control her succubus urges. It’s perfectly done. Sometimes giving into those urges and sometimes holding back or finding alternative ways to control it. But when she does give into those urges, you’ll want to make sure you’re in a cool area because your ereader is in danger of melting and your panties will burst into flames.
Overall, I loved it. I’m not sure you could tell from the review, but I did. I can’t wait until the next book comes out. This book is big on adventure and it just makes me all giddy. It could almost be one of those pick your own adventure books. Flaming Satan’s balls, that would be fucking epic! My only complaint is that I’m learning that I’m not really a fan of the female/female action. This isn’t only f/f, but there are a couple f/f scenes. Maybe if there was some penis mixed in with the f/f I would like it more. I am a huge fan of cock. Bring on the penis party! Anyway, I would recommend this to fans of weird west and fantasy genres.
“The enemy of my enemy is my friend”
Bring on book #4! I’m ready!!
ALANA MELOS is a struggling author who found out writing erotica gave her much more freedom in writing than when she wrote the “serious” literary stuff. Since this discovery, she’s endeavored to write the very best interesting, weird, plot-driven, and hot erotica she can. She sincerely hopes to just entertain people, whether they read for the plot, the weird factor, or the racy factor. Along with her loving husband, she lives with a crazy cat.
