5.0 out of 5 stars Bangs does it again! 7 July 2007
By Deborah MacGillivray HALL OF FAME VINE VOICE
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Okay, I'm in love with this one before cracking page one. Connall O' Roarke. Sigh...Nina Bangs tends to conjure devoted acolytes and naysayers equally, and I am not sure why. She always delivers. Very few authors can make me laugh aloud. Lynsay Sands, Katie Macalister, Kate Angell, and Jayne Ann Krentz always tickle my funny-bone. But queen of the giggles is Nina Bangs. She never fails to have my side hurting from laughing so hard. She isn't offering rocket science. Hey, Sparkle, Ganymede and pals are a hoot. Sometimes I don't want heavy heavy hangs over my head, but instead, want to escape into FUN, and Bangs has never failed to do just that for me - take me on a fun adventure, whether it's Castle of Dark Dreams or Woo Woo Inn, check the seriousness at the door, kick back and have a ball.

The third installment for the Castle, this time it's sexy bad boy Connall taking the showcase. He made the bad mistake of offing one of Morrigan's fav fellas, and suddenly in return, he finds himself cursed. Go figure. There's just no pleasing some people! His charge - to protect the descendants of the man he killed, and he won't be released from this middle life until the last one dies. Only, things are getting a bit demanding since the last descendant is a sexy vampire, Gerry. Connall might yet get that one way ticket to lalaland, because someone is out to kill Gerry who is hot on the trail of a serial killer. Connall is just hot for Gerry!

Another book for my Bangs keeper shelf. Her brand of zany humor gave me the perfect escape for an evening. Better than a pound of Godiva chocolate and less fattening.

3.0 out of 5 stars so so... 12 Nov 2010
By Rebecca
Format:Mass Market Paperback
The third installment in this series follows the antics of the loved characters as in the other 2, with the main person being the third 'brother'.
This is fluffy stuff. It is a good way to spend a couple of afternoons when you don't want to think and even if the 'happenings' are over the top, you don't care because it makes you laugh and you're having fun.

Well written with the right level of action, sex and romance. Read this book and the one before it in just 2 days because I just couldn't put them down. Try it for a relaxed easy read.

4.0 out of 5 stars 4 stars 4 May 2007
By AK - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Eight centuries ago, killing Morrigan's favorite warrior netted Connall O'Roarke the curse of immortality and the gaes to always protect the man's descendants until the last one dies. He's been off duty for a few years because his last charge died and the next one hasn't shown up, so he spent his time helping run the Castle of Dark Dreams, Sparkle Stardust's realm of fantasies. Then, he gets word that the last Kavanagh is checking in, so Connall once more has to protect the offspring of the enemy. However, when he meets Gerry, he discovers she's a very attractive woman and a vampire. His duty will now never end, but considering how much he likes her, that is either a blessing or a further curse. Morrigan has also banned him from having relations with a Kavanagh. He might be released sooner than he expects, if whoever is trying to kill Gerry has their way. Between the would-be assassin, Gerry's determination to catch a serial killer, and Morrigan determined to stop them from acting on their desires, life is more interesting than Connall ever wanted it to be.

**** If you need a good laugh, then grab this one posthaste. The secondary plots alone are enough to make it a worthwhile read. Sparkle, Ganymede, Asima, and Fo, the talking cell phone/demon detector, keep you smiling or giggling throughout the story. The main plot is, of course engaging and fun, filled with surprise twists and turns around every corner. I truly look forward to finding out what trouble the cosmic troublemakers will caues next. ****

1.0 out of 5 stars Everyone is a comedian which left me in the dumps! 5 Aug 2007
By Jane - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I had a hard time reading this last instalment of Nina Bangs trilogy. Although I enjoyed the humour of Sparkle Stardust & Mede in the previous books - this last book was so overdone with one-liners, cliches, smarmy remarks that it left me cold and in the dust! I could not connect with anyone because it seemed that everyone was a comedian. Obviously Ms. Bangs never heard of "less is more". The right balance was found in the first book when Sparkle Stardust made her entrance along with Mede. They were a delightful pair and an oasis of humour amid the dark realm of vampires, etc in the Castle of Dark Dreams. But by this last book she made everyone a comedian which lost it's charm for me after the first few chapters. Ms. Bangs also uses the same storyline in each book of a dowdy dressing heroine whom Sparkle dresses up in sexy clothes in order to seduce our hero. That's enough already! I had to force myself to finish this book. I was sorely disappointed and as bored as hearing the same joke over, and over again.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wicked Fantasy 12 May 2007

The 'Wicked' books [of which this is the 3rd] are hilarious with touches of silliness and lots of interesting paranormal characters. A real page turner.

4.0 out of 5 stars Conall's curse a "wicked" ending 3 Jun 2007
By melindeeloo - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I've been waiting for the ending of the Castle Fantasy series for a long time. These "brothers" were just so intriging. Wicked Fantasy had a great set up -- the warrior cursed by a goddess to protect the eldest decendant of a slain enemy. Conall has been under this curse for 800 years and at long last there's only one decendant left. His freedom is in sight, when the last one dies the curse is over. Unfortunately, the last descendant is a vampire.

This book had all the funny elements from the rest of the series and some steamy scenes between Conall and the vamp lady. Unfortunately, when Conall and Gerry finally ditch everyone trying to keep them apart and have a chance to really get intimate, they do it in a fantasy sequence where they are not only not themselves but are strangers to boot. It just wasn't very satisfying.

Still they do get their happily ever after, and its fun to see all the old characters from the other books. So, if you are a series nut like me you have to read it. Also look for the two shorts that go along with the series in anthologies Men at Work (Berkley Sensation) a prequel where you find out who the mysterious owner is and Surf's Up Taurin's story.
