The Ghoul Vendetta - Lisa Shearin

Fast paced as per usual. Am a bit surprised that we have elves, goblins, and... apparently we have fae as well. Huh. Oh, and Fomorians. The latter were banished millennia ago by what turns out to be Ian's ancestor...who wasn't human. Nobody's sure how Ian feels about that. Ian isn't saying though. Ian would have remained in the dark so to speak about his ancestry if the bad guy hadn't left a little trinket that lit up like the Bat signal when he picked it up.

 

Of course, the bad guy is trying to get a curse lifted that Ian's ancestor placed on the Fomorians, and to do that, he's gotta remove Ian.

 

Much investigating ensues, with Rake declaring his intentions to Mac just prior to the latest war to stave off Armageddon. Of course the good guys win.

I'm so glad to finally be reading the original. I love the basic premise--and some of the scenes and even dialogue--which made it into the film intact, but this is better. and that's saying something, because I do love the film. I think this may be turn out to be my "you can have one, on a desert island" graphic novel...

it's beautiful. I'm a big fan of the film, but this looks like it's going to be even more interesting.

The Ghoul Vendetta / Lisa Shearin
The Ghoul Vendetta - Lisa Shearin

A vampire gangster's nephew is abducted off his yacht by a bunch of low-rent Creatures from the Black Lagoon. A slew of banks are knocked over by what looks like the cast of Night of the Living Dead. All of this may seem like the movies, but, I promise you, it's not.
I'm Makenna Fraser, seer for SPI, and I know the culprits aren't wearing disguises or makeup. They're real. Deadly real. Especially their leader--an ancient shapeshifter who leaves a trail of chaos and blood in his wake. Now, he's taken my partner, Ian--and his intentions aren't pretty.
The worst part? This is only the beginning...
The beginning of the end of the human race.

 

Another enjoyable offering in the SPI Files. Now I can see the set-up for this book that Shearin wove into the first three books. Very skillfully done.

For those who are into paranormal romance, this series may frustrate you. The pace of Mac and Rake’s relationship is glacial, but I’m okay with that. This seems to be parr for the course, as Shearin’s Raine Benares series is much the same. Unfortunately there is also the same is a tendency to repeat, repeat, repeat herself (although not quite as much in the SPI Files).

With Vivienne Sagadraco on vacation, we get to see more of Alain Moreau, cool vampire lawyer. Although I love Vivienne, it was nice to see Alain get some page-time.

The big changes in this installment happen in Ian’s life. I will be interested to see where Shearin takes things next, as there are obviously threads of the story left hanging, waiting for another book. Not to mention that I want to know how things go for Mac & Rake. Mac didn’t get to use her seer’s powers much in this book—hopefully that will change in the next one.

Now the big question is when will Book 5 will be published?
