Review; The Dead Don't Drink at Lafitte's (Sam Quinn #2) by Seana Kelly
Description from GoodreadsI’m Sam Quinn, the werewolf book nerd owner of the Slaughtered Lamb Bookstore and Bar. Things have been busy lately. While the near-constant attempts on my life have ceased, I now have a vampire gentleman caller. I’ve been living with Clive and the rest of his vampires for a few weeks while the Slaughtered Lamb is being rebuilt. It’s going about as well as you’d expect.
My mother was a wicche and long dormant abilities are starting to make themselves known. If I’d had a choice, necromancy wouldn’t have been my top pick, but it’s starting to come in handy. A ghost warns me someone is coming to kill Clive. When I rush back to the nocturne, I find vamps from New Orleans readying an attack. One of the benefits of vampires looking down on werewolves is no one expects much of me. They don’t expect it right up until I take their heads.
Now, Clive and I are setting out for New Orleans to take the fight back to the source. Vampires are masters of the long game. Revenge plots are often decades, if not centuries, in the making. We came expecting one enemy, but quickly learn we have darker forces scheming against us. Good thing I’m the secret weapon they never see coming.
My Thoughts on the BookIt was fun returning to this series. The plot in The Dead Don't Drink at Lafitte's was action-packed at times as well as overall engaging. It was fun watching the relationship between Sam and Clive develop, as well as Sam finding out a thing or two about herself and her background. There's also a few other characters I'd love to see more of in future books.
Overall it was a fun book to read.
