After Reading : Dead On The Delta by Stacey Jay

Dead on the DeltaDead on the Delta by Stacey Jay
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Imagine pinky-small fairies with beautiful beguiling faces.  Now imagine them with fangs and in-a frenzy over human blood and with their bites make human insane, sometimes even dead right away.  Donaldsonville Louisiana is now surrounded by iron- a fairy repellant to protect people from these blood thirsty fairies.  I find this really different and with Anabelle  our reluctant and conflicted heroine makes it more interesting.  Anabelle is one of the very few humans who are immune to these bites and is an employee of Fairy containment and control unit.
The story has a lot of twists and turns that keep you guessing.  With a murder investigation, fairy-poop (as addictive as cocaine to humans) and  deadly-fairies, not to mention her emotional tug-of-war between her current lover Cane and her tragically-ended relationship with her Ex, Anabelle has her hands full.
I like Anabelle, even if she considers herself a loser, unlovable and  a "habitual drinker'.  No matter how she denies that she does not care , deep inside she cannot stop herself from being involved.  Deep inside she hides her real self.  And Cane sees this.
The last part of the story makes me look forward to the next book.
Another series to look forward to.
