Review – ‘Wicked Fantasy’ by Nina Bangs


Goddesses kick butt when you tick them off—Conall O’Rourke learned this the hard way after killing an Irish deity’s favorite in battle. His punishment? He’s cursed to protect Kavanagh descendants down to the last arrogant jerk. Now there’s only one left, and Conall thirsts to claim his freedom after centuries of servitude. But who knew the remaining Kavanagh would be so beautiful...
Gerry Kavanagh has dedicated herself to tracking down bad guys of the nonhuman variety. Unfortunately, she finds more than the wereweasel she’s after at the Castle of Dark Dreams. The most despised member of the O’Rourkes expects to shadow her every step so he can “serve and protect” her. Nope. Never going to happen. Too bad he takes hot way beyond sizzling...


In the third installment of the Castle of Dark Dreams series, immortal warrior Conall O’Rourke finally meets the last descendent of the hated Kavanagh family. He’d killed the cruel Sean Kavanagh in battle 800 years ago, and the Irish goddess, Morrigan, cursed Conall to immortally so he could protect the Kavanagh descendents until the last one died.
Gerry Kavanugh is a vampire. Turned against her will two years earlier under circumstances never explained in the book, Conall and Gerry’s dislike of one another quickly turns to lust, but their relationship is like a tug-of-war. Between the cruel Morrigan and three demonic vestal virgins trying to destroy Conall and Gerry’s relationship, and a mysterious demon named Dell trying to kill Gerry, the H/h have their hands full.
Though it’s sad that Deimos left, his replacement in Sparkle’s candy store is drop-dead hunky. Edge is like Sparkle and Ganymede, a cosmic troublemaker, but he seems to be the only one of the three with a strong, sane head on his shoulders.
There were a few loose ends in the book not tied up. Where were Sweetie Pie and Jessica? Is ‘Gerry’ the heroine’s full name or a nickname? I also wanted to know more about Conall’s human past and how he figured out Dell’s real identity.
Since I’m a fan of dirty-talkers, I was happy to read more cursing in this book than in the previous ones. It’s still not a lot, but more than I expected.
This is my favorite book of the series.
