Overview

When it comes to love between a medusa and a Vampyre, it’s every man, woman, and snake for themselves.

A Novella of the Elder Races

As a coroner, medusa Seremela Telemar has always felt more comfortable chatting over a dead body than over drinks. But when her wild niece, Vetta, runs off to Devil’s Gate, a lawless town that has sprung up overnight in a modern-day gold rush, she knows she has to extricate her before the rebellious girl gets into real trouble. Though she’s confident in her head snakes’ ability to defend her against attackers, Seremela is still a bit nervous about braving this modern-day Wild West by herself.

Vampyre Duncan Turner is not about to let his new co-worker go into that chaos alone. His Vampyric power and lawyer smarts make him the perfect ally, and the fact that he already had his eye on Seremela for more…personal reasons, doesn’t hurt matters. Any romantic thoughts pull up short, however, when they arrive at Devil’s Gate and learn Vetta is set to hang by morning.

In order to save Vetta and themselves, Seremela and Duncan are going to have to fight fire with force and magic with fangs. And pray they make it out of Devil’s Gate alive.

Warning: Contains mother effin’ snakes in planes, cars, tents, and beds. Luckily, our hot Vampyre hero doesn’t mind them one bit…

I loved this story. Both Seremela and Duncan had already found places in my heart from their secondary roles in the main Elder Races story line, so when I heard that they were going to get a novella of their own I was thrilled. I would have been happy with these two just having more page time but Devil’s Gate went above and beyond, weaving a sweet and moving story while also expanding the world of the Elder Races and topped it all off by delivering on a killer happy beginning of an ending. When we first met Seremela in Storm’s Heart she was interesting as a representation of a Medusa, however when she again turned up in Serpent’s Kiss we discovered that she was also a smart, resourceful and underutilized character. That she was finally able to fulfill more of her potential in this story was a joy to watch unfold. Then there is Duncan. I love Duncan. If any side hero deserved his own story it was Duncan. I am so glad that Ms. Harrison chose to fit Duncan in. Not only is he an amazing character to watch, but he ends up to be such a perfect fit with Seremela that I have to believe that such a pairing was Ms. Harrison’s plan all along. I would love it if we could see more of these two in the future, as they were so much fun to delve into and I feel that they each have so much depth left to explore. This story was such a perfect little bite in the Elder Races series (to tide those of us addicted over until the next full novel comes out) that while—as always—I wish it had been longer, it was such fun while it lasted that it will help in keeping me sated until my next series fix.
