Neon Noir: A Delilah Street Paranormal Investigator Anthology by Carole Nelson Douglas
My rating: 1 of 5 stars
This book might be for you. It was most assuredly not for me. The world was OK, but three things kept me from enjoying it:
– The reveals or answers to the cases seemed to come out of left field (compare with Sanderson where a reveal or twist makes you realize all the hints that were dropped all along)
– The prose was mostly fine, but then strange turns of phrase would leave me wondering “what’s happening here?”
– The collection of stories in this anthology was weird because often reference was made to events that didn’t happen in any of stories you’d read. So they’d be talking about something key that was affecting the way the characters were relating to each other and you felt as if you’d fallen asleep during the movie.
