Melanie Jackson gives us a third Goblin tale of the Lutine Empire, where Goblin escapees from France (figures ;-) that's where the troublemakers came from!) are slowing taking over the US. “Traveler” and “The Outsiders” took the romance/paranormal genre by storm, because it’s being so fresh and original a concept. Blending mythology with her "Wildside" alternative world, these tales are funny, breathtaking adventures, that are wickedly sexy. In “Traveler”, the Goblins were in rule of Detroit, but then, no one really missed Detroit, so the Lutine threat was not taken seriously. But then they moved in on Las Vegas in “The Outsider”, and people started to get grumpy. Only now, they have taken hold of the Big Easy. Oh, my! What will happen to Mardi; are the Crewes loaded with Goblins in drag? And what about a “Poor Boy”...are the ingredients still oysters? Will Preservation Hall still play Dixieland? Are Al Hirt and Pete Fountain really goblins? Well, Melanie is not content with have King Quede a Goblin king rule New Orleans...this Goblin is also a vampire! Where is Peter Cushing when you need him! Worse, Half-Sylph Lyris has been given evidence to prove Quede and the Goblins were behind the Kennedy Assassination and the Lyndon Johnson was replaced with a goblin replicant, which means the Goblins had been in the White House for ages! Lyris cannot let this go, and must travel to New Orleans to beard the orchid-crazy Vampire-Goblin on his home turf. Romeo Hart has been sent to New Orleans to suss out how bad the Goblin infestation is, and works as a stripper at a French Quarter bar, to keep an eye on the situation. Lyris team up with Romeo to lure Quede out into open and it's a sultry goblin chase all the way! Romeo and Lyris are another pair of Melanie's vivid creations, and will keep you turning page after page, unable to put the book down. Look for the fourth in the Goblin series come September called "STILL LIFE". Keep them coming!! They are a breath of fresh air and a loving tribute to ancient lore!
