Transplanted Tales, Book 3
Synopsis: Along came a spider…
When Trish Muffet is attacked at a grisly crime scene, the last person she expects to come to her rescue is Nicky “Little Boy” Blue. But since walking away from everything two years before, Nicky’s been doling out vigilante justice as “The Spider,” taking on the vicious predators of the night in hopes it’ll lead him to his ultimate target – Vlad Dracula. And he needs Trish’s help.
Although Nicky’s renegade style goes against everything Trish stands for, she’ll do what she must to bring Dracula down. With danger stalking her, Trish knows the only person she can count on is the one man who has the power to leave her breathless. There’s no way she’s letting this spider frighten her away…
Review: I was looking forward to the release of the third installment of the adventures of our beloved tales characters. I didn’t really know Trish Muffet, and I think the story that many people know is underdeveloped in France. So it was really interesting to learn more about it here.
Trish is a young woman who has to adapt gradually to the new world in which she was thrown against her will. By her ability to read the dead, she became a friend and a colleague of Tess. Since her arrival she is also in love with Nicky « Little Boy » Blue, a very elusive man. But when Dracula continues to wreak havoc, and that the agency (consisting of ordinary humans) is attacking them, Trish and Nicky have to team up to track down the one who pulls the strings and if a bonus reconciliation occurs between both of them, this is not our young woman who will complain.
I loved this new story, it is full of twists and turns of situations that we did not expect. Kate Serine has perfectly set up a logical sequence that we follow blindly to finally surprise us at the end of the story. I was very happy to be able to follow our dear Nicky here. We had the chance to discover him in the first two volumes and it is true that I was eager to discover more about him. I must say he is full of resources when needed. Trish is much more sedate but still determined to get what she wants and it was very cute to see them both together throughout the story.
Of course, there is more and I loved to have Tess again, the character I prefer, along with Nate of course, but Lavender and Seth are never far away either. Our young Tess is about to give birth and is quite anxious over her child because his father is something completely unique. But this, too, we’ll know in due time.
This is a very good new story, and I still loved the ideas of the author about the tales characters that we all know. I recommend the series as it is very pleasant to read it.
