Though this is the 6th book in the Castle of Dark Dreams series, jump right in for a frightful fun adventure.

Pure fun and fantasy are the backdrop of this wonderful paranormal romance that has every type of paranormal creature you can imagine as well as every god and goddess known to man. Thorn wants to hurt Sparkle but finds himself attracted to her spy, Kayla. Kayla has no idea that Sparkle is anything more than she appears until her cat starts to speak to her. And, then, she learns that Thorn is a vampire. She should be running but she’s not and ends up in a battle that no human should be involved in. If she doesn’t watch it, she’s going to fall in love with the wrong man, or make that vampire!
I can’t express how much I loved this story. The story is multi-dimensional and the characters are unique and fun. Things aren’t always as they seem which just adds the interest in what is going on. Illusion becomes reality. No dark gloomy scenes but lots of amusing ones. However, addiction is discussed as is long lost family. As usual, this story leaves me wanting more and who knows where Sparkle will end up!
