Dreadful Company

Contemporary fantasy in the world of Strange Practice, starring Dr. Greta Helsing, whose family has been keeping the supernatural community not-alive and well for generations.

When Greta Helsing, doctor to the undead, is unexpectedly called to Paris to present at a medical conference, she expects nothing more exciting than professional discourse on zombie reconstructive surgery and skin disease in bogeymen — and hopefully at least one uneventful night at the Opera.

Unfortunately for Greta, Paris happens to be infested with a coven of vampires — and not the civilized kind. If she hopes to survive, Greta must navigate the darkest corners of the City of Lights, the maze of ancient catacombs and mine-tunnels underneath the streets, where there is more to find than simply dead men’s bones.

This was the second book in the Greta Helsing series and while I did really enjoy it, I enjoyed the first book more. I gave Strange Practice 4 stars so this one got 3, but that 3 is more like a 3.5 because this book was fun.

The book took place in Paris which is the easiest way to get me interested in a book. It included vampires and a female lead…three things I love in a book.

Greta Helsing was an enjoyable protagonist as they’re independent and intelligent, they are loyal but also cautious (because first book things happened)

The vampire gang in this book were so interesting to read about plus, their love of body glitter rivals my own! I loved getting to learn about the hierarchy of these vampires and getting to know some of the gang. I really enjoyed the nods to the previous book and existing characters in the Greta Helsing universe and getting the full back story behind this gang.

This book had love, revenge, vampires, glitter, rescue missions and bureaucracy. There was a lot happening

There were fluffy little gremlin type creatures in this book which made me squeal with delight. I enjoy mythical creatures and cute things and this book provided them.

The only reason I enjoyed this book less was just that there were parts that felt a bit too slow and the flow of the book felt like it stopped.

There was a very slow burning romance that I very much enjoyed. This book was so easy to read and just a a really enjoyable time. I am looking forward to reading the next instalment
