    There are no reviews here. Just plot spoilers and kids sexting and chatting. Both of which do not belong here. Plot spoilers need to take their spoikers to their own web site and ruin books there, kids need to go to facebook and get off noom. This is a boom review site.

    I didn't expect what this book was about. Now, I'm addicted to the Assum family!

    Trixie give you a vivid, well-written insight to a member of "the assyl um. It adds drama without taking away from the main story.

    Got Me All Revved Up For The First Full-Length Novel Angel's Ink

    Brought to you by OBS reviewer Heidi

    The Asylum Interviews: Trixie is a fun little short story to get you all pumped up for Drake’s new series, The Asylum Tales. It’s actually the second prequel to the series, but unfortunately I did not have the pleasure of reading the first, which was about Bronx, the troll. But even though I missed out on the first prequel I didn’t feel like I missed anything.

    Gage was a warlock-in-training who didn’t like how things were being run where he trained, at the Ivory Towers, and escaped. He still has his magical powers, but struggles to keep them a secret. Now he runs a tattoo parlor called Asylum and I can’t help, but think what a cool name that is for a tattoo shop!

    In this book, Gage met up with his ex-girlfriend and vampire, Jo, only to discover that she has been living in town for a month and is being controlled by a ruthless master vampire, Chester.

    Jo also told Gage about a friend of hers that was looking for a job as a tattoo artist. He agrees to interview her friend, Trixie. But during the interview Trixie pleads with Gage to help her free Jo from Chester’s rule. So now the two of them along with Bronx are on a mission to save Jo before Chester can hurt her any further.

    I’m really not a big fan of short stories, but I did really enjoy this one. Gage was a fun character and I loved him trying to make Trixie think he was an asshole when everything he did proved the opposite.

    “Fan-fucking-tastic. Not only were Jo and Trixie in danger from this master vampire, but Trixie’s beleif in my prickishness was fading fast.

    Priorities. I need to focus on getting Jo free of Chester permanently while protecting Trixie from any backlash from the master vampire. I could always prove to her later that I was a dick.”

    Gage definitely makes me anxious for the first full-length novel of the series, Angel’s Ink (expected to be published in October)!

    The only thing I really didn’t get was why this book was titled after Trixie, when she really wasn’t a prominent character in the book, taking a backseat to Gage, Jo, and even Bronx. But overall it doesn’t matter that much. This book was a lot of fun and a very quick read. I will definitely be continuing this series!

    Our Review, by LITERAL ADDICTION's Pack Alpha - Michelle L. Olso

    Our Review, by LITERAL ADDICTION's Pack Alpha - Michelle L. Olson:

    The 2nd eNovella Prequel to Jocelynn Drake's highly anticipated ASYLUM TALES series, Trixie was another wonderful sneak peek into the upcoming world and characters. As Bronx did, Trixie just made me want Angel's Ink that much more!

    Taking place 18 months following The Asylum Interviews - Bronx, The Asylum Interviews - Trixie starts off hot and heavy, picks up steam as the story continues, and ends with a bang.

    Jo, Gage's ex-girlfriend and vampire is back in town and the two start off basically where they left off 2 years prior with a mutual lust and like. Jo has a problem though, and it takes Jo's friend Trixie - a closet elf and fellow tattoo artist - to bring Gage in on the situation.

    Teaming up with Bronx again, as well as Trixie, Gage proceeds to do everything in his power to help Jo while still maintaining his status quo as the warlock-in-training-no-more.

    I already like Trixie. She's high spirited, fiercly loyal, and shoots straight from the cuff, no holds barred, though she is somewhat dangerously spontaneous. She isn't afraid to tell Gage that he's being a prick or an a-hole, and does it on a regular basis throughout the story, and she definitely has some secrets that will be fun to unveil.

    Ironically, just like I said in my review of Bronx, Gage is a good guy and a great friend, and his whole act of being the ultimate alpha-hole just doesn't stand up. He continues to be a wonderful leading alpha male for the series. He tries to distance himself from people by being sarcastic and rude, but what it all comes down to, is him just trying to protect everyone, even if that means from himself.

    Bronx still holds a place close to my heart, even though he wasn't quite as featured in this tale he still grabbed my attention, and the three of them together - Gage, Bronx, and Trixie - both at Asylum and in their adventures conquering Low Town going forward should prove to be immensely exciting and revealing.

    LITERAL ADDICTION gives The Asylum Interviews - Trixie 4 Skulls. I am so excited for a full length ASYLUM TALES novel now! October can't get here fast enough.

    WARNING FROM THE ASYLUM

    Things are about to go seriously underground, if you know what I mean. Back out now or be forever trapped within the Asylum.
