Publisher’s Description:  I just woke up in a motel.
I have no idea who I am or how I got here.
But I do know three things.
There’s a body on the floor…and one in the bathtub.
There’s a bullet in my shoulder. And it hurts. Bad.
And there’s a vampire warlock right outside the door. And he’s coming to finish the job.

Drop Dead is the first book in the new urban fantasy series starring Tess Skye.

Nervous Nellie’s nervousness necessitates knowledge of the novel. In other words …SPOILERS. *BEWARE*

Nervous Nellie says…

First of all, I loved this story.  It was well written and it was never slow…ever.  There is no sex – pure urban fantasy.  There is death and some of it is a little gory too.

Tess is a Soulwalker.  Someone that can live the last few minutes of someone’s life as well as re-animate them.  It’s a dang cool trick and it sounds like it could make a human full on insane.  Tess is fighting the odds in a losing game.  It’s really quite amazing that she actually finishes the year long fight in good vs. evil.   Tess is the last Soulwalker and there are many magical creatures that are out in the public eye because of the Great Reveal.  This time, the cops are against the good guy and are corrupt all because of one guy that, again, wants all the power.  There are Immortals, Vampires and probably others that haven’t been mentioned yet.  I guess the reason I liked this story so much was because it didn’t duplicate something I’d already read.  This book popped up after I read Demon Rogue by this same author.  If I had to measure in stars, I’d rate this book one more star higher than Demon Rogue.  If you like urban fantasy and a fairly fast paced, but not complicated story, this is the book for your next planned escape.  I really enjoyed it.
