4.0 out of 5 stars Refreshing urban fantasy, 23 April 2012
By 
This review is from: Dead on the Delta (Mass Market Paperback)
Dead on the Delta surprised me. I'd been growing more and more tired of the strong, stubborn female lead archetype who falls hopelessly in love (see: lust) and makes mistakes aplenty whilst vampires etc. roam the city, and so I had anticipated more of the same from this one but sure, whilst it was a little, it was also a breath of fresh air. Once Annabelle finished whining about this, that and the other at the beginning of the novel, she was actually quite a loveable and snarky character in whom we do see a little growth despite her instabilities. And whilst I did question her romantic decisions towards the end and may have liked to hit her over the head repeatedly for them, she's just a little indecisive as opposed to the quite frequently seen `girl who is unable to make her own decisions'.

The story itself is great. Okay, so latter parts of the novel did get a bit weird for my liking but nowhere near the level of some other novels. Stacey Jay's overall writing style was good enough to pull it off and keep me reading and enjoying the novel throughout. We have a murder case which gets more disturbing as the novel goes along, a hidden drug ring with more to it than meets the eye, a freakish cat who was oddly quite loveable, venomous and nasty faeries who drink human blood and one bite will either cause instant death or slow insanity amongst the 95% non-immune, as well as a romance that could be considered questionable at best.

If you enjoy urban fantasy and haven't read Dead on the Delta yet then you need to get your hands on a copy soon. It is a fantastic read. There is something refreshing about it and the ending wraps up nicely, yet opens up enough of a follow-up to leave you yearning for the next installment.
