    he latest Street Paranormal Investigator thriller combines horror, mystery, romance, and sex into an exhilarating urban fantasy

    It has been years since the Millennium Revelation when all the creatures of myth and legend rose up from the shadows to reveal themselves to humanity. Delilah Street comes to Las Vegas from Wichita to work as a paranormal investigator. Deep below the Karnak Hotel lives a vast Egyptian vampire sect ruled by two Pharaohs; humans are bred and brought to them as food. Delilah rescued her lover Rick MMontoya by giving him the Resurrection Kiss to restore his life.------------

    After Rick was in a coma, Delilah finds she has the ability to kiss away from his back thescars he received while he was a slave for a master criminal.. He wakes up and remembers what happened to him and is determined to free the other humans held by the Egyptian vampires. Before they leave on theur quest, the werewolf Cesar Cicerau summons Delilah to remove the ghost of the daughter he killed who haunts his hotel. A supernatural creature is stalking the hotel killing anyone who gets in the way. Delilah is clueless how to rid the hotel of this deadly fiend and the ghost while below ground the vampires are dining on humans.------------

    The latest Street Paranormal Investigator thriller combines horror, mystery, romance, and sex into an exhilarating urban fantasy that puts the sin in Sin City. With plenty of twists, VAMPIRE SUNRISE is a roller coaster doing loops with each spin accelerating the ride. Readers will enjoy following the clues, surreal and mundane, as Carole Nelson Douglas lets Midnight Louie catch a cat nap while Delilah does the sleuthing above and under the streets of Las Vegas.------------

    I Also Recommend:

    Interesting story lines, but hard to identify with the characters

    I enjoy this genre, and I enjoyed the book. But I was a little disappointed in some areas.

    First of all, it seems to be two books in one, with somewhat different writing styles and character development in the second part of the book. So I will comment on it by parts...

    The first part of the book seems to be written in a 'cold' detached style. The characters seem to be distant - like watching them on a TV screen with short, crisp, stilted dialogue. It reminded me in some strange way of the old 'Dragnet' dialogue in the early days of TV. Not many excess words - just the facts (as Joe in Dragnet used to say). The story line was interesting and flowed well, and it came to a logical conclusion about half way through the book. I just was not as drawn into the book as would have liked to be.

    The second part of the book takes the same characters, but it is like this was written by a different person. The characters are more developed, but the prose starts to ramble and the story line slows down. At times the authors seems to spend pages trying to impress the reader with her knowledge of Egyptian mythology - you would think this would be to set up the next scene, and perhaps that is the intent, but it does not work as well for me.

    The setting in part 2 is more grandiose - with Egyptian 'gods,' hordes of victims trapped underground as fodder for vampires, and our poor little heroine and her boyfriend driven to try to free them against impossible odds for no good reason that I can fathom. Characters come in to help them and then fall out of the story line inexplicably. Bad guys who could stop them seem to not want to bother.

    The thread that ties part two together is a wolf-dog that sounds like a supernatural version ScoobyDoo that is more interesting to me than the characters. You become more concerned about him than about the lead characters who seem incredibly naive and foolish - trying to overcome legions of vampires, ancient gods, and half-human bad guys just for the sake of doing it. Motivation is a bit lacking. It is hard to imagine, for example, the lead male character going back to a deep underground layer where he was previously captured, drained of most of his blood, and saved by a supernatural kiss from the lead female character.

    The scenes are so extravagent in part 2 that it would seem that the book was written to be made into a movie. It would be easy to see this book as a movie script - perhaps easier to see that than to plod through it as a book.

    I do not want to sound overwhelming negative, and I am afraid that this review has that tone. The story line is interesting, and the plot flow, while a bit obtuse at times, does keep you wanting to find out what happens next.

    I enjoyed the book, but I have read other books in this genre that I have enjoyed more. I recommend the book, but with some reservations, as I think the casual escapism reader will find it a bit slow paced and hard to follow with a myriad of characters that pop in and out of the story.
