Kate Locke is a shameless anglophile who wrote her first book at age twelve. Fortunately, that book about a British pop band is lost for ever. When not experimenting with new hair colours, Kate likes to hang out with her husband who, while not from England, can do a pretty convincing accent. She loves history, the paranormal, horror and sparkly things.

Newly proclaimed goblin queen Xandra Vardan is back and still in the mood to kick some serious butt. In this sequel to Locke's God Save the Queen, Xandra's brother Val has gone missing while investigating the suspicious disappearances of "halvies" from a popular London club. The suspects are vampire wannabes who will trade favors for a swig of vampire blood. Xandra, with the assistance of Vex, her boyfriend and alpha werewolf, and William, prince of the ferocious goblins, tackles a depraved group of villains searching for the reason behind the halvies' kidnappings. The constant action never lets the reader get bored and the humor keeps us amused. VERDICT Urban fantasy fans will want to read this, especially those who read the first book. Those new to the series will find the glossary at the back of the book a useful tool to get them up to speed. [See Prepub Alert, 8/16/12.]-Deb West, Gannon Univ. Lib., Erie, PA (c) Copyright 2013.
