Yasmine Galenorn: Flight from death

Yasmine Galenorn sekoittaa vampyyrifantasiaa rikosten selvittelyyn kummallisessa tarinassa, jossa fantasia ja tavanomaisuus iskevät toisiaan märällä rätillä: Flight from death (Penguin Publishing Group, 2015; ISBN 978-0-698-14191-9).

Esittelytekstin perusteella kirja aloittaisi romaanisarjan, mutta lukeminen tyssäsi muutamaan sivuun, siinä määrin tuntui omaperäisyys puuttuvan, ja sitä myötä kiinnostavuus.

I'm Shimmer, a blue dragon shifter. Thanks to a mistake, I was exiled from the Dragon Reaches and sentenced to work for Alex Radcliffe, a vampire who owns the Fly by Night Magical Investigations Agency. Now, not only do I have to adapt to Earthside culture, but every time I turn around, somebody's trying to kill us. And worse, Alex is as gorgeous as he is exasperating. But you know what they say: All's fair in love and bounty hunting...

When an old friend of Alex contacts him about a haunting at the High Tide Bed & Breakfast in Port Townsend, Washington, we think we're on a simple ghost hunt. But our investigation quickly transforms into a deadly fight as we uncover an eighty-year-old murder, a cursed house, and a dark force trapping the spirits within. To stop impending disaster we must break the curse and lay the angry spirits to rest.
