Book Review: Monkey Jump

      Today's review is on Monkey Jump by Deborah Riley-Magnus

Monkey Jump is the second installment in Magnus' twice-baked vampire series. Like the first, it is chock full of danger and adventure with a healthy handful of romantic woes.

Running the new "tank" is difficult enough for the double-dead vampire Gabriel Strickland, but now he has been assigned to go on a Monkey Jump to see how the other managers handle things. The only good thing to come out of the assignment is that he can take an assistant, so he brings his girlfriend Dori. As usual though, thing's are never as they seem.

Along with Gabriel, Dori, and the ever annoying Leprechan Feever Clovely, the crazy Witch Neave Cook and her pawn/Soul Eater "friend" Don Carson are on board the plane scheduled to take them all to Seattle. Unknown to Gabriel and his friends, Neave and Don have plans of their own and this time it may mean the end of them all.

Vampires, Shifter Polar Bears, Witches, and even a Dragon are in the mix in this delightfully written sequel. I'm looking forward to the next adventure.

Book Description:  via Amazon

Twice-baked vampire Gabriel Strickland may appear to be coping well with the responsibilities his life after double-death has dealt him, but it's only show. The struggle to earn his ticket through the Pearly Gates takes a toll when he's assigned to perform a Monkey Jump - a program designed to teach newly assigned management the skills required to do their job. To soften the blow, he takes Dori as his assistant. What he wants is peace and serenity to think things through, what he gets is startling temptation and a Soul Eater with his sidekick, Master Witch Neave Brittania Cook. One has a revenge agenda and the other, designs on Gabriel's soul. The Monkey Jump itinerary, scheduled for Phoenix and Seattle, takes a perilous detour to a north Alaskan community of the oldest, most evolved vampires on the planet. Secrets must be kept and Gabriel must protect Dori as well as his own path to paradise. Well, hell, this can't be good.
