PRLog - Sep. 3, 2012 - ANACORTES, Wash. -- Anacortes author and resident, Paul Dorset has published “Unicorns”
A single kiss can get a girl killed. But what if he's the most irresistible man you've ever met? What would you do?
Unicorns continues the Melrose tale and finds other members of Beau’s office looking to cement their place as powerful players in this paranormal tale of corporate intrigue, greed, betrayal, love and death.
There are many factions at work and who can tell the good from the evil? Maybe Lucy can as she attempts to come to terms with the devastating injury of her best friend and the deaths of others. Through everything Lucy struggles to find the man of her dreams, wherever he is. But her hunt for love will unknowingly expose her to the worst of society. Will she survive it all, or will she, like so many others, become another body in Melrose’s already full mortuary?
Reviewers of the first book have written:
"New Blood reads like season one of an addictive paranormal TV series. The premise takes the power of relationships beyond even the vampire thrill. The characters are fleshed out (except the victims, who are left convincingly dry) and we care enough about our heroine Lucy, to dread her migraines almost as much as she does. Add in a paranoia about the people who are really in power and... well, the temptation is to call it a formula for a long and satisfying series. However, Paul Dorset rises above formulaic prose with writing so compelling that only after you catch your breath do you realize the craftsmanship. He tells stories. And as with the best paranormal fiction, the fantasy serves to illustrate some basic truths of the human condition."
"New Blood is a paranormal conspiracy novel that has a wide range of appeal. There is enough romance to bring in fans of that genre, but the story is not overshadowed by sappy teenage love scenes. The relationships between the characters bring the story to life in a believable and entertaining way that everyone can enjoy."
"This is paranormal at its finest...This story will have you asking for more by the time you reach the end. I for one, cannot wait until the second book in the Melrose series comes out."
