She’s a mercenary on a mission.
Bree Carson is an Undead assassin who makes her living using her supernatural abilities to kill criminals of all kinds, protecting humanity. But Chicago’s new mayor wants her and all other paranormals either jailed or killed, and Bree’s bad reputation has her at the top of the list.
When she’s arrested one night, she’s confronted by the mayor…but not for an execution. Ilona wants to hire Bree for a very specific mission that will prove to be personal and potentially harmful to them both.
Can they put their differences aside in order to save a life?
Bad Reputation by Lily Luchesi, Published the 6th of April 2018 by Vamptasy Publishing – I received a copy from the Author in exchange for an honest review – Thank You.
I really enjoyed the short and sweet high action adventure that was Bad Reputation.
Even though this is a paranormal crime short story, in true Lily Luchesi style there is plenty of humour and heart as well. Lily manages to tell a well-rounded story with a depth to the charters and world building that you do not normally get in so few pages. Lily really has a way with short stories.
Being that it is a short story I can’t say much without giving it all away. I will say that;
I love a good twist and this story has a one. I love a kick ass main character and that’s what Bree Carson is. A strong female lead is always a positive for me regardless of the genre. I was entertained right from the start and did not stop reading until I’d devoured every last word.
We meet Bree while she’s skulking around up to her usual tricks – taking out bad guys and making bank while doing it. Even undead Bree is full of fire, a natural born fighter. She is only in her Fifties, a baby in vampire terms. And through flashbacks we learn of how she came to be a vampire and why she lives the life she does now.
Bad Reputation is a great bite size taste of Lily’s writing, it’s got all her humor, heart and sass hidden behind it’s words. If you have never read anything be Lily Luchesi you should pick this bad girl up and give her a go. You will not be sorry.
