Devil's Gate

Devil's Gate - Thea Harrison I am so not a novella kind of gal. For me, I just like a longer and meatier story. That being said, ohhhh how I loved this novella. Devil's Gate is absolutely charming, and action-packed. It totally worked for me. Already an Elder Races series fan, I am so happy I decided to read this one.

Seremela is a completely unassuming heroine. She is a medusa and has snakes for hair! They have minds of their own, and sometimes she has to tie them back because they can be everywhere from rude to flirtatious. With her green tinted skin and her abnormally slitted eyes, most would look at her and shudder, but not Vampire Duncan Tuner! He initially met her at one of Run and Carling's parties, and he has had it for her since. He finds her completely captivating, and wants to bust a move. He finds the perfect intro in to her life when she must leave for the tent city of Devil's Gate to find her niece, who has run away. Duncan is a decent hero, wanting to help her but also wanting to get to know her better. It's the perfect "in"! What follows contains murder, illegal drugs, a pariah, and inter-demesne Elder Races politics.

I thoroughly enjoyed Devil's Gate. It is short in size, but action-packed and there is some fantastically built upon sexual tension that really delivers by the end. It involved biting... I totally dug Seremela, with her insecurities of being viewed as a "monster", and learning that someone as sexy and suave as Duncan could find her appealing. Their trip to Devil's Gate is filled with action and adventure, and the pacing was really fast. Also - hello.. do you see the cover? SMOKING HOT. But I digress. You don't have to be familiar with the series to pick this up. If you are a fan of the series already, I guarantee you'll love it. This is a truly great novella!
