FROM THE BEST-SELLING AUTHOR OF THE RULES OF SUPERVILLAINY:

Jane Doe has settled into her new role as the Shaman of Bright Falls but that doesn't pay the bills. With her boyfriend off chasing his evil father, Jane has decided to take up a job as security on the set of horror movies being filmed in her hometown. Unfortunately, the crew have been threatened by an ominous force that quickly sets its sights on Jane herself.

Complicating matters is that Jane's past sins are coming back to haunt her with her vengeful cousins still blaming her for the death of their sister. Her complicated relationships with Alex and Lucien are also about to come to a head. Enjoy the final installment of the Bright Falls Mysteries! It's deerlightful!

Set in the same universe as Straight Outta Fangton, The Morgan Detective Agency, Red Room Trilogy, and Psycho Killers in Love

I enjoyed this book! I thought that it was a nice way to end the Bright Falls Mystery series. Everything about these books is fun so I couldn’t resist giving this book a chance, especially after seeing the title. Like the previous books in the series, this book was filled with pop culture references and a plethora of puns. In addition, this book includes a lot of references to the horror films I remember watching as a teen. I really had a great time with this story.

Jane Doe is currently the Shaman of Bright Falls and decides to take a job working security for a low-budget horror film that Lucien is making. The job turns out not to be so easy once real attacks start happening. Throw in some family drama, some boyfriend troubles, and her feelings for Lucien and things get exciting really quickly. I thought that the pacing of the novel was very well done.

Arielle DeLisle does a fantastic job with this book. I think that her voice works very well for Jane and I like the various voices that she uses for the other characters. This book has a lot of humor worked into the story and I thought that her delivery was very well done. She was also able to add a lot of excitement to her reading. Her narration added to my overall enjoyment of this story.

I would recommend this series to others. It is a nice lighter read that I had a lot of fun with. I loved the way that the puns and pop culture references were worked into the story and I thought that this book brought the trilogy to a satisfying ending. I wouldn’t hesitate to read more of this author’s work in the future.

I received a copy of this audiobook from the author/publicist.

  1. I’m glad you had as much fun with the series as I had. I really love Jane. She’s such a great character. She does do some cameos in the more recent Supervillainy series. I hope that trend continues because she’s a great character.
