This is a fun and fast read. A great book to introduce the series. Dulcie is a smart, lovable and slightly sarcastic character. Great for a snowy day or a hot beach day. Enjoy! ~IWas this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

Dulcie O'Neil Series Debut!
Dulcie O'Neil is a Regulator working for the A.N.C (Association for Netherworld Creatures). This is a law enforcement agency that makes sure Netherworld creatures, which are living openly among the human race, are abiding by the laws in place. She also happens to be a fairy and a pretty badass one at that. When she isn't working as a Regulator she spends time writing romance novels with the hopes of one day being able to retire from the A.N.C and write full time. In this series debut we follow Dulcie as she tries to track down a murderer that did an awful good job of make Dulcie look guilty of the crime he/she committed.Was this review helpful?

My favorite part of this book was the wide variety of supernatural characters thrown into the mix. If you're into hot supernatural guys you want to give this series a try. I've read the first two books in this series and still can't pick a favorite. Dulcie is also such a fabulous main character and I adore her best friend Sam. The moments witnessed between the two of them were some of my favorites. It seems the female protags in UF books are usually seriously lacking the BFF department. I was so happy this wasn't the case with Dulcie.
The plot and pacing of To Kill a Warlock was very impressive. Sometimes smaller novels can feel rushed and the characters will lack the development I need to connect. This didn't feel like an issue to me while reading. The dialogue was fun and I enjoyed Dulcie's wit. She is a really fun character to spend time with. All in all H.P Mallory offers readers a wonderful and engaging Urban Fantasy debut.

A great paranormal read!
This was a really good book! It contained a lot of different paranormal creatures, including a fairy, witch, goblin, vampire, etc... I liked the character of Dulcie, who is a fairy. She got out of a bad relationship, which has caused trust issues. Because of this, she hasn't even gone on a date during the past year. She somehow ends up having 3 different guys drooling after her. My favorite of the 3 is Knight, though Dulcie is reluctant to get too close to him (or anyone). I found myself wanting to see more happen between the two of them, I'm not sure why - half the time he was a jerk or cocky. Sometimes sparks just fly between 2 characters and you just have to go with it. Not only does Dulcie work in law-enforcement, but she is also a writer. When her historical romance novel was turned down by publishers, it was suggested that she try the paranomal genre. I loved her reaction to that: "Paranormals, I mean, come on. Who the hell reads those?" Ha, ha, ha.... I think that was my favorite line. I'm not sure I've read a book where the main character is an author. I mean, it's the perfect thing for an author to write about. They know first hand about all the ups and downs of writing and getting published. It gives the reader a small glimpse of what being an author is like - all the rejection and feelings of discouragement. Anyway, Dulcie's main job is in law-enforcement - and because of that, there was lots action and suspense. There was a lot of humor in this book as well. Dulcie's sassy attitude contributed to a lot of entertaining moments. I absolutely love the covers of H.P. Mallory's books. I know you shouldn't judge a book by its cover, but when I saw this one I just knew it would be a fun and sassy read. I wasn't wrong!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
