Disclosure: I secretly enjoy this series. It reminds me of a favorite TV series – Alias, only with paranormal creatures.This installment pits Jaz’s crew against a scary and get this – tentacled – vampire Disa in creepy castle extraordinaire. Jaz, Vayl, and Dave are supposed to meet Hamon Eryx at said creepy castle, but he is nowhere to be found. Instead, they are greeted by Disa and her vampire posse. Jaz finds out some rather disconcerting news about Vayl, news that threatens their budding romance. We also learn more about Vayl’s quest to find his sons Hamzi and Badu. In the meantime, Jaz and the team makes friends with werewolf Trayton after freeing him from Disa’s evil clutches. They also free were bear Kosmas from creepy castle. What endears me to this series is Jaz’s snarky wit. There are some really funny one liners and some absolutely hysterical scenes. One of the best quotes is when Jaz was dreaming of what she would like to do to Disa:"Wouldn't it be awesome if we could do a little Cartoon Network scene where I blew her up with TNT, dropped her off a mountain, ran her over with a steamroller, and catapulted her into the side of Rockefeller Center, after which she would get up, stumble around groggily for a few seconds, shake it off, and then impale herself on my lance-sized stake?"I found the dognapping scene too funny to describe. Jaz sprays herself with doggie pheromones and the results are hilarious. Cole’s text love messages to Jaz also provide comic relief. This installment is my favorite so far. I can’t wait to read the rest of the series.
