Présentation de l'éditeur

From New York Times And USA Today Bestselling Urban Fantasy Romance Author, HP Mallory, Comes The Dulcie O’Neil Series!

“H.P. Mallory has a quick wit, a fresh voice, and a clever way with words. If you like Charlaine Harris, you’ll love H.P. Mallory!” ~ Larissa Ione, New York Times Bestselling Author

If you like your reads steamy (this is an urban fantasy adult series, not for kids or teens!) and you appreciate a butt-kicking, take no prisoners heroine, read on!

TO KILL A WARLOCK is the first book in the Dulcie O’Neil Series:

The murder of a dark arts warlock.
A shape-shifting, ravenous creature on the loose.
A devilishly handsome stranger sent to investigate.
Sometimes working law enforcement for the Netherworld is a real bitch.

Dulcie O’Neil is a fairy. And not the type to frolic in gardens. She’s a Regulator—a law-enforcement agent who monitors the creatures of the Netherworld to keep them from wreaking havoc in the mortal world.

When a warlock is murdered and Dulcie was the last person to see him alive, she must uncover the truth before she’s either deported back to the Netherworld, or she becomes the next victim.

Enter Knight Vander, a sinfully attractive investigator sent from the Netherworld to work the case with Dulcie.

Between battling her attraction to her self-appointed partner, keeping a sadomasochistic demon in check, and fending off the advances of a sexy and powerful vampire, Dulcie’s got her hands full.

As the body count increases, Dulcie finds herself battling dark magic, reconnoitering in S&M clubs and suffering the greatest of all betrayals.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 another great book by H.P. Mallory 11 décembre 2011
Par LF
Format:Format Kindle
After reading H.P. Mallory's Jolie Wilkins series (which is amazing), I started on this book and I loved it !
It has the same fresh, witty writing style as the Jolie Wilkins series.

I love the world that H.P. Mallory has created for the Dulcie O'Neil series. Fairies, elves, pixies, witches, warlocks, vampires, demons, goblins and all sorts of other creatures come from Netherworld, a dimension parallell to our world. 50 years ago the Netherworld creatures outed themselves and have been living amongst humans since then.
Dulcie, the main charachter, is a fairy and she is some kind of a cop to deal with infractions commited by Netherworld creatures. Her best friend is a witch, her boss is an Elf and her work colleague is a hobgoblin.

In To Kill a Warlock Dulcie has to solve some gruesome murders with the help of a very handsome cop from the Netherwold, Knightley Vander (Knight for his friends).

Dulcie a en charge de veiller à ce que les démons, vampires et autres se comportent correctement. Quand l'un d'entre eux meurt, elle reçoit l'aide officieuse de Knight pour résoudre le problème.
Une romance fantaisie très agréable avec des personnages sympathiques et beaucoup d'humour. Je lis la suite a tale of 2 goblins.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Murders, monsters and kick-ass fairies 16 octobre 2010
Par A.M. Harte - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
This is a solid urban fantasy with strong elements of romance. The story follows the independent, hard-working and crime-busting Dulcie as she polices the Netherworld and handles illegal trafficking, murder, and more. But Dulcie's routine is thrown into disarray when a warlock is murdered and she's the last person to have seen him alive. Dulcie must crack the case, fast--and it remains to be seen whether the sinfully attractive investigator Knight Vander will help or hinder her cause. Between fighting her attracting for Knight, hunting a roaming monster, and handling a scheming vampire, will Dulcie capture the murderer in time?

While I was a little hesitant about the cover of Fire Burn, this cover caught my eye and held it, perhaps because Dulcie is much more my kind of protagonist than Jolie is. Dulcie is a go-getter, a strong female character with a mind of her own and the ability to fight her own battles. As a fairy, she's blessed with supernatural speed and, of course, the magic of fairy dust--a power which, to my delight, is rather originally handled in this novel.

I suppose "original" would be the best way to describe the world-building, too. While there were many familiar elements -- witches and vampires and fairies -- Mallory has created a fresh twist on the paranormal, viewed through the eyes of a snarky, entertaining heroine. The plot itself is often light-hearted (the story begins with Dulcie being turned into a slime monster) but isn't afraid of the darker side too; what with murders and betrayals, this story has just the right mix of romance and suspense to make it a perfect weekend read.

Knight remains a bit of a cipher but he's an intriguing male lead, more so because Dulcie doesn't put up with his oversized ego and helps to put him in his place now and then. The connection between the two is made all the more interesting because Dulcie keeps side-stepping his attempts to seduce her -- again showing that Dulcie is a strong character who doesn't fall into a swoon over just anyone. (Knight likes the challenge, though.)

In sum, I think it's quite clear that out of HP Mallory's two series, Dulcie's story is by far my favourite. To Kill A Warlock is an urban fantasy/romance that strays away from the beaten path by mixing in some serious crime-busting and undercover work -- not to mention a solid ending that leaves you wanting more. Recommended for lovers of snarky heroines who can kiss ass and still have a love life.

1.0 étoiles sur 5 Oh man what happened to my faith in reviews? 21 mai 2012
Par Debbie Richardson - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
You know that old saying "I was robbed"? That's what I feel like after spending a few hours reading this book. Weak, weak, so very weak.

I rely heavily on amazon reviewers alerting me to new authors. I'm obsessive about going thru other reviewers list of reviews, to see if we share book taste in common. I rely on a book being good if it's recd more than 100 reviews and still staying at 4 stars. Boy was this one ever the exception that proves the rule.

Bad, bad, bad. Very exceptionally weak writing. It felt like the author was really conflicted about who her heroine needed to be. I think she had the potential for two or even three completely separate books and mashed them into one. I was so confused by this heroine and who she was.

And the heroine was, too! How can she be this kick ass regulator, yet squeamish when in the middle of an S&M club? I was way underwhelmed with her backbone. There just wasn't one.

Finally, FOUR guys with the hots for her? That has to be a new record. And why? Absolutely no clue as to why.

Please don't waste your time.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Great, fun read! 8 août 2012
Par N. Dauphinee - Publié sur Amazon.com

This was a fun, fast paced, smart, romance, paranormal read!! Loved the characters. I don't know why amazon isn't charging for Mallory's books, because even as a cheap skate, I would definitely pay full price for these! Totally hooked, about to read the next in the series! Can't wait to see what misadventures our fairy heroine gets herself into next!
Even though these are fictional characters, I felt kinship with the characters, like I could see any woman - fairy or not - do, think, and feel the same things Dulcie does. Great read!!!

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Pretty good 30 juin 2012
Par Kyoko Minamino - Publié sur Amazon.com

Out of all the free novels I've read this year, this one is definitely a cut about the rest. Granted, it still has some flaws, but it's an entertaining read overall.

O'Neil is a fun character to follow. She has a distinct voice and walks through her curious world with an air of confidence that is easy to read. She's relatively good at what she does and definitely has chemistry with Knight and Bram, though I feel it's a bit lacking when it comes to Quillan, but I'll get into that in a moment. O'Neil's main flaw, aside from her rather weird first name (yes, I know it's Spanish for "sweet", but it really does not roll off the tongue if you ask me) is that she's got a lot of Mary Sue in her. Being the best at what she does, being stunningly beautiful, having a great job, and never completely breaking down over the course of the novel. I never really felt like this was an ordeal that she couldn't overcome, and that is important in a main character. We need to feel their struggle as the story progresses and while I saw her having some difficulties, they mostly felt inconvenient rather than life threatening. She's certainly still entertaining, but I never connected with her and that does lessen some of the enjoyment.

Knight is also an entertaining fellow. I liked him and had no trouble believing the romance between him and O'Neil. However, he is a little bland for a love interest. We get to learn some things about him, but I never really got that one moment where I was like, "Aw, yeah. This is a great guy and I want to see three more books with him in them." It's similar to the problem I had with O'Neil--I never found an emotional connection with him, even though he's gorgeous and charming. He's not a one dimensional character, but he isn't exactly three dimensional either.

I also felt like there were too many love interests without adequate exploration into each of them. The author does a good job of building tension between O'Neil and these guys, but they aren't given enough depth. Plus, O'Neil doesn't seem invested in any of them. She has a crush on Quillan, but it isn't explored enough for us to feel torn up when he (SPOILER ALERT) betrays her. Knight is in the typical love interest role, but O'Neil only seems to lust after him and doesn't consider him to be a real threat to her love life. Same with Bram. I understand that romance is not the main focus of the novel, but since it takes up about half of the story, I feel unsatisfied with the end result, despite the fact that it's still enjoyable. It's good, but it could be great, if that makes any sense.

My criticisms are all well meaning. This has the potential to be a truly stellar series if more attention is paid to making the characters multidimensional. I would recommend it to those who enjoy urban fantasy novels and novels with a strong female voice because it's a great summer read.
