 The second book in a new urban fantasy series featuring mosquito-sized fairies with poisonous bites that drive humans insane.

It's only been three weeks since Annabelle helped solve the murder of Grace Beauchamp, and in the process, she discovered a secret world of invisible, magic-working people who have decided she might have what it takes to join their ranks.

As best as she can determine, Annabelle’s attack by a group of fairies has infected her with paranormal ability she did not previously possess, including being able to mentally move objects and heal wounds. Her new abilities appear to have few negative side effects, aside from creepy dreams. But would that change if she stopped injecting herself with the mystery drug delivered to her by the even more mysterious Tucker, one of the Invisibles? Leery of trusting criminals with her health, Annabelle wishes she had someone she could talk to about the changes in her life. Enter Hitch, FBI agent and Annabelle's ex, who's back in Donaldsonville on an off-the-books investigation. Hitch suspects that there's a government-funded illegal lab that’s developing a controversial fairy-killing spray that could adversely affect the existence of every living thing in the delta—including humans. And Hitch and Annabelle will have to find a way to work together if they're going to find a way to shut it down.

My Thoughts

Wow, what an amazing follow up. Seriously if you have not started this series yet you must go now and read Dead on the Delta! These 2 books will totally suck you in. I love when I can say the second book is as awesome if not more awesome then the first.

Poor Annabelle really has no idea who she can trust. It seems everyone around her has their own secrets and her poor world is tearing apart. Then there are the surprises the fairies throw her way! One fairie in particular starts haunting her dreams and threatening to kill everyone she has ever loved. He can even breach the border!! She learns that now that she has been taking the shots she has a lot of new gifts and some of them might get her killed.

We must talk about all the yummy men in her life. There is Cade who seems nice and loyal and someone who she can trust and lean on.. But is he?? Then there is Hitch the ex love of her life who she may never get over. But he has a whole ton of baggage including a soon to be wife and soon to be baby. But these two have steamy chemistry and its hard not to pine over him when we are in Annabelles head. Then there is Tucker! Who shares a lot of her gifts. He is also gorgeous and has that bad boy vibe, but with him she wouldn't have to keep any secrets. But he also works for the bad guy! All of these men have their own secrets and all of them I LOVE!

If you are looking for a new unique world filled with just non stop awesomeness then you have found it right here!! I read this in 1 sitting it was that unputdownable!!! Blood on the Bayou, was just a perfect balance of awesomesauce!!! Go check it out.

Also thanks again Miss Vain for letting me borrow this and for introducing me to an awesome series!

  1. lol nice quote ;P I haven't read the first one yet, added to my to-buy list! I think I am going to love this series. The covers look great as well.

  2. Jet, wait until you read the books, then the covers are even better. Because you see exactly why they choose it. You will have to let me know when you read them. I am really thinking I need to go back and up them to 5 stars.
