One for Lovecraft fans this as our hero takes on Cthulhu and the old ones as they plot to take over the world starting with New Orleans, its never Bognor Regis is it? Simmons has his hero facing up against the vampire queen of New Orleans as she attempts to use the Old Ones to gain power and this time introduces the fae into the mix as well. All the usual characters are back with the wise cracks and references to popular culture. As with his last book the denouement is well done and unusual and the ending as to how it affects several key characters was unexpected. I'd like to see book 5 back in the realm of the vamps and weres without him having to save the world yet again.

Back again to Mr Simmons warped take on American Vampires, werewolves and demigods. While unable to pass up on a punny (sic) comment or misquote this, bravely, attempts to take on Hurricane Katrina, Captain Nemo and the Older Gods. There are new characters to fit into this new world view - but at the end a literal burst of time travel leaves us in a 'Bobby Ewing in the shower' moment which gives a rollicking yarn a rather bloodless (sic) ending.
