The Asylum Tales, Book 0.6
Synopsis: The second of two prequel stories to Jocelynn Drake’s Angel’s Ink.
Gage’s ex-girlfriend is back in town and needs help escaping a master vampire. While not the easiest of tasks, he certainly didn’t count of getting help from a mysterious woman with a few secrets of her own.
Review: After reading the first novel I was pretty curious to discover this novella. The first book introduces us the character of Trixie without telling us her meeting with Gage. This man is very unique and as we don’t know a lot about him, Herself or even Bronx, I was impatient to read this book.
We also discover here Joe, the former girlfriend of our hero who returns after a longabsence, and asks Gage if he could hire a young friend of hers, tattooistas well as she is looking for a job now that she has just arrived in town. But the interview did not go as planned and Trixie announced immediately what she wants by explaining to Gage thatJoe is abused by a master vampire with whom she lives and she would like him to help her to find a solution. It’s not long for him to decide to save her, or at leastfind a way to do it. But Trixie is determined to take care of that too.
I enjoyed their meeting as it fits perfectlyin the context of the story. Gage is a man who tries to sound harsh, but as soon as you attack the people he loves, he is ready to do anything to help.This novella is a really fast read and I liked this little introduction. I admit that I‘m intrigued now aboutthe first prequel about the Bronx story as I’m sure it must be just as interesting.
Hmmm… I might have to give this a try.
I liked this one better than the first book, it was nice.
I think I’ll have to add the novellas to my series reading when I get to this one. Yep, you reminded me that I want to read some Jocelynn Drake. I haven’t as of yet.
This series was my first books by her. I was very curious. A little disppointed by the first one but loved the novella.
I need to read more of her books first 😉
I’m also curious about her other series.
You know this is one series I’ve not tried. And I don’t think I have a book of it here. Thanks for the review. 😀
