At the turn of the new Millennia, the Y2K crisis fizzles and the end of days never happened. What did occur is that the creatures of myth and legend including vampires, werewolves, witches and others came out into the open. Old timers think it is a hoax but youngsters, like twenty-something Delilah Street know these creatures are real. Having been raised in an orphanage, never adopted or fostered out, she learned to be self-sufficient and independent. --- While watching television, she sees a doppelganger of herself down to the earring in her nose. She goes to Las Vegas and the producer Mr. Nightwine of the show mistakes her for Maggie the corpse who has become a cult favorite. He provides Delilah a place to live on his estate while she tries to track her double down and she meets Ric Montrose, searching for dead bodies. When she douses with him they find new bodies wearing clothing at least sixty years old. She feels their last moments of life and learns she is a certain type of medium. Ric and Delilah are attracted to her but other people take an interest in her including Snow a vampire who encircles her arm with a bracelet formed of his hair and werewolf Cicerau who mistakes Delilah for her double and kidnaps her to be in his magic show. She uses her new found powers to escape and helps Ric identify the two dead lovers while trying to find out who she really is. --- Carole Nelson Douglas leaves her Midnight Louie series to provide fans with an entertaining urban fantasy with that rivals that of Kim Harrison and Kelly Armstrong. The protagonist jumps from the frying pan into the fire as she tries to stay one step ahead of her enemies and those who want to use her. DANCING WITH WEREWOLVES is a mystical delight. --- Harriet Klausner

Exciting but a bit overwelming.

Carole Nelson Douglas has always been good at blending reality with fantasy (Midnight Louie's narrative); and with blending fictional characters with historical characters (Irene Adler series). This series takes the reader to an alternate world where myth and legend are real, at least the Hollywood versions. I like the idea, but there was just so much to absorb that I will have to re-read this book before going on to the next of the series.

My favorite of the alternate realities in the story is the idea that characters from old black and white films can become "really" real. It does seem that the old movies did more to develop their characters than current movies that rely more on special effects.

My least favorite part of the book was its' cover art. I have long ago realized that the artists do not read the book before they draw the cover, but this one irks me. Here is Deliah's description when seeing her dog Quicksilver for the first time, "I approached the cage, then tapped the wires to see the most beautiful pale blue eyes ever, way better than my own, turn to me from a silver-and-cream furred face. A widow's peak of darker fur over those amazing eyes made them seem almost human." He was a mix breed from the wolf-spitz family. On the cover of the paperback book, however, she is standing with a grizzled wolf. I would much rather see Quicksilver.

    Eh...

    It felt like I was reading a stream of consciousness from an 8th grader with ADD. I couldn't get halfway through before giving up on it.

    DON'T READ THIS!!!

    I hated reading this book because everything was all over the place and the main character was too nonchalant about the supernatural. The ending was not concrete, leaving too many loose ends and many things unexplained. The plot revolves around the concept of CSI Las Vegas, goth style, but you're better off just watching the show than reading the book.
