To Kill a Warlock: Dulcie O'Neil, Book 1

Dulcie O'Neil is a fairy. And not the type to frolic in gardens. She's a Regulator - a law-enforcement agent who monitors the creatures of the Netherworld to keep them from wreaking havoc in the mortal world. When a warlock is murdered and Dulcie was the last person to see him alive, she must uncover the truth before she's either deported back to the Netherworld, or she becomes the next victim. Enter Knight Vander, a sinfully attractive investigator sent from the Netherworld to work the case with Dulcie.

Publisher's Summary

The murder of a dark arts warlock. A shape-shifting, ravenous creature on the loose. A devilishly handsome stranger sent to investigate. Sometimes working law enforcement for the Netherworld is a real bitch.

Dulcie O'Neil is a fairy. And not the type to frolic in gardens. She's a Regulator - a law-enforcement agent who monitors the creatures of the Netherworld to keep them from wreaking havoc in the mortal world. When a warlock is murdered and Dulcie was the last person to see him alive, she must uncover the truth before she's either deported back to the Netherworld, or she becomes the next victim.

Enter Knight Vander, a sinfully attractive investigator sent from the Netherworld to work the case with Dulcie. Between battling her attraction to her self-appointed partner, keeping a sadomasochistic demon in check, and fending off the advances of a sexy and powerful vampire, Dulcie's got her hands full. As the body count increases, Dulcie finds herself battling dark magic, reconnoitering in S&M clubs, and suffering the greatest of all betrayals.

    "Engaging, but sometimes frustrating"

    Dulcie O'Neil is an idiot. For some reason this particular genre has a common type: stubborn, impulsive, overly emotional, with very poor judgment, and Dulcie just may be its poster child. She acts first and thinks later, ignoring both very good advice and flashing neon signs reading "Don't go in there!" The question isn't so much "how is she ever going to get out of this one," it's "how did she ever get herself into this one." And, that's just her professional side. She comes with as much emotional baggage as dysfunctional family of four. But, she is also highly principled and fiercely loyal to those she cares about. When she puts her own life on the line, it's to help and protect others.

    The plots and other characters are interesting and, when Dulcie isn’t getting in her own way, there’s enough suspense to keep the reader engaged. By the third book, Great Hexpectations, it appears our little girl may be growing up. The narrator, Therese Plummer is very good and does a great job of bring all the characters to life.

    All and all, I do recommend the series if you don’t mind periodically rolling your eyes and thinking, “For God’s sake, Dulcie, grow up!”

    "The first 5 minutes are the only good part."
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Find a better writer.


    What could H. P. Mallory have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    She needs to decide what genre she is writing and stick with it. It starts off hilarious then tries to be serious, then tries to be a mystery, then a romance. It never finds cohesion.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The opening scene is great. The book falls apart after that.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disappointment. I feel like a wasted a credit on this book.


    Any additional comments?

    The performance is really good, given what the reader had to work with.

    "A new paranormal maestra? Fun listen!"

    I was happily surprised by this book for several reasons. First, it was entertaining in the way of Molly Harper or Tate Halloway or Jennienne Frost, with snappy dialogue, a little suspense, lots of urban paranormal, and a little romance. Second, I was surprised I hadn't heard of this author till I went to Kindle>Whispersync>sort by price and found it that way, and 3rd, the unexpected bargain of a fun, entertaining listen free on kindle plus $2 audio and then it high ratings too?!

    Therese Plummer is probably on the A list narrators and really added to this great bargain package. That said, it did take me about an hour or two to stop hearing her men sound like Jack and women like Mel from the prolific Virgin River series.

    I gave it 5 stars for high entertainment value, fun suspense, edgy urban underbelly details, not being another erotica book (romance(s) is G rated and in its infancy in story arc), Snappy at 7 hours, kept me riveted as I painted, and the high quality narration.

    What's even better? The following books in the series are a great bargain if you buy the kindle v first, then the audio attached for total of six bucks. A great entertainment value when you know its gonna be good after spending only two bucks for the first audio.

    I've downloaded the next two...you should too!

    Any additional comments?

    A fun story line, very entertaining story - just the type of thing I like to listen to while commuting to work or traveling in the car. Nothing so earth shattering that you cannot concentrate on driving, but interesting enough to keep you awake and engaged in the story, and wanting to get back to the story soon.

    "to kill a warlock"
    What made the experience of listening to To Kill a Warlock the most enjoyable?

    the story line and the comedy


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Dulcie


    Have you listened to any of Therese Plummer’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I listened to the other Dulcie O'niel books. She is great to listen to because every character sounds different allowing each of them to shine.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    i did laugh a few times and at the end of every book my mouth drops at the unexpected cliff hanger.

    "Too cute for my taste"

    It just tooooo kitchy for me. In the first scene our heroine has been turned into something gross and her cookie-baking friend is trying to reverse the spell while baking cookies, which the "thing" devours. Hmmm - not my taste (pardon the pun - or don't).

    "an okay read"

    I found the heroine -Dolce -a bit retarded. One or two stupid moments are allowable in a heroine, but a number of stupid moments? Got too irritating....

    An okay read overall, but not sure it's enough to propel me into the series.....the Barbie-looking cover picture may be more apt than I would have believed....

    "I actually listened to these more than once"

    I had no idea what to expect when I started listening to this book because this was the first I "read" (listened to) by HP Mallory. Boy was I not disappointed. This series really kept me interested, and I actually loved all of them so much that when I finished the last one I just started right back at the beginning! ...and then found other books she's written and bought them as well!

    So if you've gotten as far as reading this review, stop stalling and just buy it already! You'll have a blast!
