Wicked City; A Zephyr Hollis Novel - scribd.com


Skin problems suck. There are few things that make me want to cry under a pillow than a big old zit on my forehead. So, what do we do to hide these imperfections? We cover them with layers and layers of different makeups. Like, honestly the worst thing you can do…but what are your other options? Going outside with a zit?! God forbid.

I’ve always had something wrong with my skin. When it wasn’t a breakout, it was over drying from using those self proclaimed zit-zappers.

I’ve used everything from dermatologist medication stuffed with harsh chemicals you shouldn’t be putting anywhere near your body to Proactiv..and you know what? Nothing worked. You know what did work? Not doing anything.

So, like many of you know, I adore lipstick. And my creme da la creme is Lime Crime. There’s a lot of controversial around the company and the owner, Doe Deere. Like many companies, LC has its haters and its die hard fans. It’s a small company, so it faces its difficulties with keeping up with it’s high demand of customer service. My family owns a small business, so I understand how difficult it may be regardless of how their CEO handles it.

Red Velvet and Wicked are from the Velventine and Wicked Collection. Both are to die for. They go one shiny and dry matte, are impossible to take off (literally) and perfect.

Their opaque lipsticks are another story. I adore the D’Lilac and Oh No She Didn’t, they are not your everyday looks but are great for a little edge.

Alaya Johnson ( Moonshine ) spins another tale set in an alternate universe 1920s New York City, one that shares its streets with the Others – supernaturals including vampires. What’s a self-respecting Singing Vampire Suffragette to do but embroil herself in another mystery? This time the vampire-immune Zephyr Hollis is on the trail of whoever poisoned the blood-based intoxicant Faust that has led to the strange deaths of citizen vampires.

Hollis has personal problems of her own as she struggles to free herself from her obligation to make a wish of handsome djinn Prince Amir. She must also avoid the police who pursue her for harboring an underage vampire. She has personal conflicts with her Faust prohibition principles even as she visits speakeasies. Add a missing father and family secrets galore and this is one conflicted woman. Amir comes in handy as Hollis finds herself in scape after scape as the evidence of the murders points towards her.

Details of colorful family, friends, a knish-eating detective, and crafty Mayor Jimmy Walker all help stabilize the supernatural elements of Johnson’s tale. Although a little slow to pick up narrative steam, the ever-sparking romance between Hollis and Amir has a nicely drawn arc and payoff. And once the forces get whirling, the book becomes a page-turning delight. Intriguing clues of a sequel involves zombies next time. Perhaps only the City that Never Sleeps could hold so much living and undead.
