Menagerie - Book Review









Blurb:
From New York Times bestselling author Rachel Vincent comes a richly imagined, provocative new series set in the dark mythology of the Menagerie… 

When Delilah Marlow visits a famous traveling carnival, Metzger's Menagerie, she is an ordinary woman in a not-quite-ordinary world. But under the macabre circus black-top, she discovers a fierce, sharp-clawed creature lurking just beneath her human veneer. Captured and put on exhibition, Delilah in her black swan burlesque costume is stripped of her worldly possessions, including her own name, as she's forced to "perform" in town after town. 

But there is breathtaking beauty behind the seamy and grotesque reality of the carnival. Gallagher, her handler, is as kind as he is cryptic and strong. The other "attractions"—mermaids, minotaurs, gryphons and kelpies—are strange, yes, but they share a bond forged by the brutal realities of captivity. And as Delilah struggles for her freedom, and for her fellow menagerie, she'll discover a strength and a purpose she never knew existed. 

Renowned author Rachel Vincent weaves an intoxicating blend of carnival magic and startling humanity in this intricately woven and powerful tale.





4 Stars;

I picked this book up on a whim and I'm glad I did.

The Metzger's Menagerie has come to town and Delilah's boyfriend has tickets for them. There she see's all sorts of hybrid and other animal/human/fae oddities. If is here that Delilah bares witness to a werewolf cub being shocked to perform for the humans. The anger rages thru Delilah, until she isn't herself any more. But something that belongs in the Menagerie. Shuffled away to the police station it is there that the owner of Metzger's, Rudy approaches with a financial offer. He'll take her, she is rare, so rare, he doesn't know what she is. *GASP*   

Gallagher is her handler, it's his job to bring her beast out.  Only she is stubborn and proud and won't cooperate with him.  He fears for her being.  If she doesn't cooperate she'll be sold off and hunted like an animal.  Which neither wants.  It doesn't take Delilah long to figure out her trigger and when she does she rides that wave.  She holds it in her chest and lets wave after wave roll over and bring the beast out.  But the beast isn't easily satisfied, she has a thirst for vengeance.  Once that is satisfied the beast calms and Delilah can return.  Gallagher tries to help Delilah, but she is on a reckless path of self destruction.  Can Gallagher save her in time?  Can he save himself?  




I will admit this book started out slow.  I kind of got bored with it, until she transformed and then I was sold, lock, stock, and barrel.  I couldn't put it down and needed to know what she was and then when I did find out I had to look it up.  Because I needed to see what she might look like.  Don't worry you'll do the same thing and no picture does her justice, but still look.  Because why?  Because you want too!!  And you need too.  Look them all up.  Ohh and awe over the world that Rachel Vincent has created.  This is an amazing fairy tale and I can't wait for book #2.  

Give this book a try.  Mull it around, let it seep in.  You will find redeeming qualities in the menagerie and shoddy handlers.  You will find love and sorrow.  Fear and hope.  They are all this book.

AUTHOR BIO

Highland Storm - Author Photo
Victoria Zak is an internationally bestselling author in Scottish Historical Paranormal Romance. Her first book, Highland Burn, won an Honorable Mention at the 2015 RONE awards for best paranormal romance.
Growing up in the sister city to Stirling, Scotland, Scottish flare was abundant throughout Dunedin, FL. From her High School band to the annual Highland Games that took place right across the street from her childhood home, the bagpipes beckoned her toward her calling. It seemed only natural for Victoria Zak to want to write in the Scottish historical romance genre. Add to the fact, she was also a paranormal romance junkie, there was no doubt that her influences would be the driving force behind her stories.

EXCERPT

Eve of All Hallows - Teaser 3
I think I will enjoy my time here.
Very much.
I’m taking in that magnificent view while I swirl a glass of red wine. Sometimes a girl gets lucky. It’s well past midnight now, but I can’t sleep. Beyond the beauty of my surroundings, of the warmth on my skin this late in the year, is the sound of the sea. I am truly alone in my own little nirvana. No one knows where I am, and I don’t care.
There’s a flash of movement from the corner of my eye. Maybe I’m not as alone as I thought. My heart flutters a little. Then I see him walking the beach towards the water, under the great moon above. My magnificent view just got even more spectacular. He’s fully naked.
My attention is riveted now as I sip my wine. I can’t see a lot of detail in the darkness, but I can see he is tall, with long hair. Nicely built, and if my eyes don’t deceive me, well-endowed as well. Now, this is a very interesting development.
I watch as he enters the water, and I shiver just a little as if my own skin was touched by the cool waters. He disappears momentarily beneath the dark sea, and emerges, throwing back his long hair. I know I should look away, I should respect his privacy, but I cannot. I am a voyeur in my own little world.
I’m not really sure how much time I spend watching him. Perhaps only a few minutes, maybe even an hour. He emerges from the waves, a mere silhouette now in the moonlight. He stops and looks straight to me. My first reaction is to want to drop to the floor. But my mind tells me he cannot see me in the darkness.
So, if he cannot see me, why does he stare in my direction?

The first time I met Brody Easton was in the men’s locker room.
It was my first interview as a professional sportscaster.
The famed quarterback decided to bare all.
And by all, I don’t mean he told me any of his secrets.
No.  The arrogant ass decided to drop his towel, just as I asked the first question.  On camera.
The Super Bowl MVP quickly adopted a new hobby—screwing with me.
When I pushed back, he shifted from wanting to screw with me, to wanting to screw me.
But I don’t date players.
And it’s not because I’m one of the few women working in the world of professional football.
I’d date an athlete.
It’s the other kind of player I don’t date.
You know the type.  Good looking, strong, cocky, always looking to get laid.

Brody Easton was the ultimate player.
Every woman wanted to be the one to change him.
But the truth was, all he needed was a girl worth changing for.
Turned out, I was that girl.
Simple right?
Let’s face it.  It never is.
There’s a story between once upon a time and happily ever after…
And this one is ours.
