For centuries, treasure hunters have been eager to possess the stones, undeterred by their corrupting nature. The list is long — Genghis Khan, Alexander the Great, Napoleon, to name a few. Now the Stones have found their way to Salem, Massachusetts, and so has Gerwulf Grimoire, adding himself to this rogues’ gallery of power seekers. He’s an uncommonly dangerous man, with a hunger for the forbidden, and a set of abilities that are way beyond ordinary. Abilities that he feels entitle him to possess anything he might desire.
That would include Elizabeth Tucker, the woman he needs to find the Stones. She’s freshly transplanted from New York City to Boston’s North Shore. With a new job as pastry chef at Dazzle’s bakery and an old house inherited from her Aunt Ophelia, her life is pretty much on track …until it’s suddenly derailed by a guy named Diesel, a rude monkey, and a ninja cat.
Lizzy can handle the monkey and the cat. She’s not sure about Diesel. He’s offering up his own set of unusual talents, promising to protect her from Grimoire. The kind of protection that Lizzy suspects might involve guarding her body day and night.
The Seven Deadly Sins are pride, greed, lust, envy wrath, sloth and gluttony. That pretty much covers everything that is wicked. Diesel thinks it also pretty much covers everything that’s fun. And Lizzy thinks Diesel and the Seven Deadly Sins cover everything her mother warned her about.
My take on this book: CAUTION! IF YOU HAVE NOT READ THIS BOOK YET. CONTINUE AT YOUR OWN RISK! THIS REVIEW MAY CONTAIN SPOILERS!!!
We all know that Diesel is one of those characters that were in the Stephanie Plum novels that were in between the numbers throughout the series. Well for a while that is. He is now in Wicked Appetite with his own series and it is a good one.
This whole book..well book series is all in Elizabeth Tucker’s point of view. Lizzy and Diesel are all pretty good and everything works. I love this book and the book series. It’s all good. The first Seven Deadly sin that we encounter is gluttony. I love this book and I give it a five star. This book has a bunch of quirky characters. I think that this book series could be better than Stephanie Plum’s series.
This book series is really good and it’s awesome. Despite what anyone thinks of it this series is good. I love it very much.
This Review was previously posted on my blogspot site which I will be closing soon.
