  2. I received this for review but that doesn t change my opinion in any way This wasn t the best novella I ve read but not the worst, and I think that my main problem was the writing style and the fact that I couldn t click with it.It s a very very short read and I think you should give it a change if you want to see how it is, if you like the style, the characters, so you know if you buy and read the next book or not For me, as I said, it wasn t amazing, it had some good parts here and there, but [...]

  4. The Fool is a prologue to the upcoming novel, The King Delia is a vampire hunter who wants to prove herself and earn the respect of her peers This is the first time any author has considered the professional challenges of being a vampire hunter and belonging to an organization, like the League which added something new to the story The description is minimal, subtle and pulls you deeper into the story The pacing is great, I completed the book in a single setting The writer is seriously gifted, I [...]


  5. I stumbled upon this book by pure chance and I am very happy I did First off, I am new to the adult paranormal romance genre so this was defiantly something new to me, so I can t really comment on how original it was, but it was very enjoyable I loved that this reminded me of a darker, most adult Buffy which is one of my favorite shows I am very interested in seeing how this series plays out and will be picking up The King immediately This is my first book by Liz Meldon and I found the writing a [...]

I received this book from the author through LoP in exchange for an honest review.Delia is a hunter who craves the greatness that has successfully evaded her during her short career Tired of picking up low level goons, she decides to jump on a hot tip regarding an evasive high level vamp that is destined to finally boost her career Armed with an ill thought out plan, she enters the vampire masquerade and finds who she is looking for in a way that she never expected.If you re looking for a vampir [...]


  10. As always, I don t leave ratings for my own books, but I do like leaving a little tidbit in the comment section about my time spent writing it.The Fool, in many ways, is my big departure from writing fanfiction Even with my ongoing paranormal romance serial, Lovers and Liars, my characters are still, for the most part, public domain folks that I ve taken creative liberties with Here, Delia and the Fool are my own little babies, and I m really excited to share them with everyone I was really keen [...]


  11. Pretty good, pretty good Pretty darn good Paranormal romance isn t usually my thing, but this was very good A different spin on the usual vampire tropes I ve read before.A hunter named, Delia, goes off on her own to a masquerade party looking for one of the upper level vampires, but instead ends up finding the Fool Let s just say that she gets much than she bargains for with him.The naughty bits in this story were pretty hot The couple felt like they were actually intimate and not just in just [...]


  12. The Fool is the prequel to the The Games We Play series It sets the tone for what readers can expect from the series It whetted my appetite and made me eager to discover what the series had to offer The Fool introduces us to Delia, a low level vampire hunter who has been trying to garner the respect of the vampire hunting league However, no matter what she did they refused to acknowledge her efforts Therefore, when an opportunity arose for her to prove that she was good at her job she could not [...]


  13. Don t you just love writing a review when you forgot to take notes ahem The Fool is a prequel novella so I sped through it It s easily doable in one sitting if you ve got an hour or two spare, and it s every bit as sexy and intriguing as I ve come to expect from Meldon.Personally I found it slower to start with than her first novella in the Lovers and Liars series but I still enjoyed it In fact, I ve already got The King waiting on my kindle, so I m looking forward to getting around to that some [...]

  15. I received this arc in exchange for an honest review Absolutely loved this novella and I can t wait for the next full length book The author had me hooked and I didn t see that twist at all Not to many authors can pull off paranormal books but this author nailed it Looks like I have another favorite series to add to my collection.


  16. I loved this preview It is a full story in itself, and left me shopping on iBooks for her next installment The story is graphic my cheeks were burning with embarrassment as I read alongside my husband on the couch, but it is crucial to the plot Delia is a low grade vampire hunter who gets a tip about a special masquerade party While at the party, she meets the Fool, decides a one night stand is perfectly okay, and sets off a chain of consequences Delia is a strong personality but not aggravating [...]


  17. 4 stars A great start to a series or prologue to book one Even though I have been a little tired of vamps, I am a sucker for a masquerade Let s just say Liz did it again I love all her work And she wrote about vampires the way I perceive them sexy, dangerous and mysterious Now I am craving the next book


  18. It was good towards the end, the beginning first few chapters were a bit slow and I was trying to get into it but couldn t until Delilah showed up to the party.


  19. We start off learning about Delia, her profession and where she stands on that job hierarchy I enjoyed the social design of this world with how the present day humans deal with vampires Although, I did feel there was a few info dumps here and there in the story to explain all this information but it was done in a way that wasn t really bothersome to me but may be for others However, other than increasing the word count, I couldn t think of a better way to explain it without being cumbersome and [...]

  21. I was approved to read this Novella from Novel Readers by the author I will admit that when I requested the title, I was completely judging the book by its cover and I didn t read the synopsis before I started I believe this has a lot to do with my lower rating The main character Delia is a hunter of Vampires and is hunting a top tier vampire known as Claudia at a Masquerade Ball that it is rumoured said vampire is supposed to be attending If I knew that the story was going to be set up like thi [...]
