Wicked After Midnight: A Review

WaMWicked after Midnight is the final chapter in Delilah S. Dawson’s Blud novels, which is really a disappointing statement as the Blud novels have become some of my favorite paranormal romances. This is also where I should say that I do know Delilah, but that does not totally influence my reviews, at least I don’t think it does… Anyway, the books are super-awesome and Delilah herself is super-DUPER-awesome.

Now back to your regularly scheduled review.

After playing a background character through the previous Blud tales, Demi the Bludman contortionist leaves Criminy Stain’s magical traveling carnival. With her best friend Cherie in tow, she sets of to Paris and her dream of being a cabaret star. In route, however, Cherie is kidnapped by slavers. Demi must partner with the dashing Vale Hildebrand to find and save her friend. While gathering information, Demi works her way to the top of Paris’s cabaret, where she learns that it’s not all glamour and glitz.

Blud Corgi by Delilah! I would have posted more of the actual page it was drawn on, but Delilah randomly picked the (ahem) steamiest scene of the book to draw on.

Wicked After Midnight contains some of Dawson’s best steamy scenes to date, which are foiled nicely by perilous action, witty repertoire, and damned fine storytelling. There’s even a giant, clockwork elephant. While not fun for the entire family (though I’m sure grandma would get a kick out of it!), this book is a wonderful choice for anyone who loves (deep breath): Vampires, Carnies, Moulin Rouge, Steampunk, Romance, French impressionism, or a fun story.

5/5 Stars
