“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 resist. It didn’t matter that she had to dress up and attend a masquerade ball to achieve her goal. This was her chance to kill the head honcho of the regional vampire clan. What she did no count on, however, was the distraction that came in the form of an intriguing and mysterious stranger who was determined to stay by her side for the entire night if possible.
This was an easy and quick read, which of course ended with a whopping cliff-hanger. Although it was short it provided me with enough information to warrant me wanting to continue the series. The intimate encounter between Delia and the mysterious stranger was steamy and intense and left me wanting more. The pacing was good and I thought the story was well written.
I enjoyed this introduction to the series and will be jumping head on into the next book as I can’t wait to see how the series will unfold. This is my first time reading the author’s work and I thoroughly enjoyed it.
