Again I purchased this one from Amazon.co.uk. As I had read Blood by Moonlight, I wanted to read more of The Asylum series. I will admit I have managed to read the Asylum Interview novellas all in the wrong order but, to be truthful it hasn't really mattered. I have still enjoyed the novellas. I have loved learning more about the characters.
The cover I admit to not been as keen on. The female on the front could be either Trixie or Jo.
We see the protective side of Gage when it turns out his ex-girlfriend Jo is being mis treated by her new nest master Chester. As Jo has returned to town there are no spaces left in her old nest. there are only a number of spaces allowed since the government brought in certain rules and regulations to keep the vampires in line. So when Michelle, the leader of Jo's old nest tells Jo there's no room at the moment. Jo is forced to join the other nest in town which is ruled by a rather more sadistic, cruel and somewhat weird Chester.
Gage is upset, disappointed and enraged when Trixie lets him know how Chester is mistreating Jo, his first reaction is to nip around and rip Chester's head off! Then he listens to reason and decides to be more careful for Jo's sake and use a bit of magic to help.
I like all the characters in this series that I have come across so far, the protective, kind, generous yet hard, tough tattoo artist Gage, the gentle giant troll Bronx and the cute little . . .well we don't officially know what she is yet so Trixie. we do know Trixie is hiding from someone or something as she is using glamour to disguise her appearance. Even though Gage can see through the glamour he keeps quiet, like Gage I am sure we will hear Trixie's Problem soon. So now we have met those that work at The Asylum tattoo parlour . .Read more ›
This is a tight little tale about helping out friends, and learning that you don't necessarily know people as well as you thought. Gabe seems to know everyone useful, so when he needs help tackling a master vampire without being charged with first degree murder, he needs some tricksy help! It subsequently turns out that he wasn't the only one being a touch tricksy...
An interesting comment towards the end, where Gabe is thinking about the secrets he's kept from Jo, a more than 300-year old vampire, including that "... I was more dangerous than her on her worst blood-lust rampage." Really? That's potentially interesting!
Good, and I'm off to download Angel's Ink, even though I've got work I should be doing!
Gage's ex-girlfriend Jo has returned to town and the attraction between them is still sizzling. He is worried that she doesn't seem to be quite her usual self but it takes Jo's friend Trixie to fill him in on the problem. Jo is being bullied by a master vampire and tattoo artist Trixie comes to Gage looking for help to put a stop to it. Can Gage, Trixie and Bronx find a way to free Jo from the vampire's clutches?
Gage and Bronx have been working together for over a year and things at the tattoo parlour are busier than ever. They have become good friends but both are suffering from overwork and they really need another artist to help take some of the pressure off. They need to find someone that they will both get on with though and it has to be someone who is as skilled at both creating tattoos and making the special potions they use in the ink too. Will they get on well enough with Trixie to offer her the job?
We don't find out much more about Gage's past in this story but he does seem to gravitate towards people who also have secrets of their own. He doesn't push them for answers and he knows they're not likely to want to delve into his past either. Trixie is hiding her true identity and I'll be very interested to find out why that is as the series continues.Read more ›
Of course, it's not the first time Drake has written from the male perspective. She did one of the books in her Dark Days series from Danaus' POV, but it still strikes me as an unusual way to go. And kinda misleading with the covers having girls on.
Anyway, once my confusion cleared I found I rather liked Gage. He seems like an interesting and likeable chap. Slightly flawed in his plans to be an a-hole in order to keep the beautiful Trixie at bay, but nice nonetheless. He strikes me as the reluctant hero type. He tells you he's all bad, bad, bad but his actions prove otherwise.
Other characters we met were Jo, the ex-girlfriend/vampire guitar player. Bronx, the troll and partner at Gage's tattoo parlour. A few gargoyles.Read more ›
