Red Delicious (Siobhan Quinn Novels)by Caitlin R Kiernan
Synopses & Reviews
Chance Matthews has suffered enough tragedies. The latest—her grandfather’s death—has left her shaken, convinced that she will always be alone. What she needs now is time—time to recover, time to determine what her future will be.
What she doesn’t need is a strange girl with alabaster skin who knows things about Chance she can’t possibly know.
This girl speaks of being charged by an angel to battle monsters and claims she cannot do it alone. She says she needs Chance’s help.
Chance doesn’t believe in angels. Or monsters. But among the artifacts left by her geologist grandparents, there lies a fossil of a creature that couldn’t possibly have ever existed.
But it did.
And still does…
"Gritty urban fantasy meets old-fashioned noir in this high-octane sequel to Blood Oranges. The ever-bellicose Siobhan Quinn — a witty, worldly, pop-culture — savvy, and profane antihero — is both vampire and werewolf, which hasn't derailed her career hunting supernatural 'nasties.' She's increasingly frustrated with the status quo of feeding on outcasts while remaining at her employer's beck and call. Quinn (never call her Siobhan) is sent to track down the missing daughter of a renowned local necromancer, only to become embroiled in a situation that is far more complicated and dangerous than she realizes. The plot, which centers on a search for a missing magical artifact, borrows explicitly from old noir stories, and Kiernan manages to also make it relevant to her frequently reprinted 'The Maltese Unicorn,' though the story's inclusion here feels forced. Nonetheless, Quinn, her compatriots, and the setting remain entirely original. While this lacks some of the freshness of the first book, fans are sure to enjoy it all the same. (Feb.)"
