There are only thirty-six hours until Las Vegas will be daylighted by the witches of the Office of Preternatural Affairs. Thirty-six hours until every last vampire in Clark County gets ashed.
A serial killing vampire is taking advantage of every last one of those hours. His perverse game means mutilated vampire fledglings running amok, and it means there’s only one vampire hunter who can catch him.
Dana McIntyre’s getting out of prison to do what she does best.
And Nissa Royal is waiting to receive her with open arms.
The suicide queen’s been dealt. The stakes are deadly. Now it’s time to show their hands and find out who has the high card – and who will be winning the soul of Las Vegas.
I’m not quite sure where to start… or what to say… or more importantly, what not to say. So much happened in this final book of the Dana McIntyre Must Die series. I don’t want to take a chance at giving anything away.
Things were definitely not looking up at the beginning of Suicide Queen. Dana had lost a lot, including her freedom. She finally put an end to the Fremont Slasher, but the cost was high. Getting out of prison didn’t gain her much freedom, but it was a start. She had little time to worry about her new status when the new threat to Vegas was wreaking havoc in a brutal, gruesome way.
Then there was Nissa, who wasn’t done with Dana. She was even scarier than her master in some ways because of her unique power and her need for revenge. I was not a Nissa fan and Dana’s tiny soft spot for her drove me nuts.
On a side note, someone else drove me nuts in Suicide Queen and it was totally unexpected. I may have mentioned once or twice that I’m a huge fan of Cèsar Hawke, but he wasn’t my favorite character in Dana’s book. I still liked his snarkiness and he finally redeemed himself by the end, but I had a hard time liking him as much as I usually do. I think I need another Preternatural Affairs book, stat! LOL!
So, the Dana McIntyre series has come to a satisfying end and the author managed to make me like a character that I never expected to, but I don’t think that S.M. Reine is quite done with Dana yet. There were a couple of strange turn of events at the end of Suicide Queen… actually more than one, but I’m not giving anything away, remember?
