Matt Wallace Does It Again with "Lustlocked"
AUTHOR: Matt Wallace
PUBLISHING DATE: January 26, 2016
FROM GOODREADS: The staff of New York's premier supernatural catering company, has their work cut out for them in this outrageous follow-up to Envy of Angels.
Love is in the air at Sin du Jour.
The Goblin King (yes, that one) and his Queen are celebrating the marriage of their son to his human bride. Naturally the celebrations will be legendary.
But when desire and magic mix, the results can be unpredictable.
Our heroes are going to need more than passion for the job to survive the catering event of the decade!
NO NO NO! What an ending...I seriously don't know what I ever did to Matt Wallace to deserve such an ending (just kidding Mr. Wallace). Once again we meet up with the crazy cast of the Sin du Jour catering services and this edition picks up the day after the first book left off. The readers get to learn more about some of the cast, and I found myself really becoming attached to some of the characters. So far, Lena, Bronko, Little Dove are my faves and even Darren is starting to grow on me some.
I won't give too much away but the crew is catering the wedding of the Goblin King's son to a human and the enormous affair quickly gets out of hand. A BIG prop to Wallace for his portrayal of The Goblin King and his beautiful model wife - I will cherish this book always for this wonderful reminder of Mr. Bowie, even if I am sure when he was writing it, Wallace had no idea that as people read it, people around the world would be remembering The Goblin King for other reasons.
This book is as twisted and demented as the first one, and that's a good thing. As you can tell, the ending is quite a cliff hanger and my mind keeps racing for possible outcomes and excuses for what I just finished reading. The next installment can't come soon enough!!!
