Don’t you love a quick read that will keep you on your toes? Well, Lord of Misrule is a serial type series that is quick and intriguing and addictive. Ritual being the first gave me an introduction into the life of Alex and that monsters do actually lurk in the darkness. Ms Hope’s writing style was just fabulous with fast paced drama and hot tension, and of course the rich, powerful and dangerous.

Alessandra Donati (Alex) is twenty five and very determined to prove she is capable of being a legitimate journalist. Her mantra is “WHATEVER IT TAKES”. She always thought it would be easy to break into the world of journalism, but eighteen months later, she is working as a junior reporter at Global News Network.

Alex has something up her sleeve and knows she will be given this story as long as she can find the proof it exists. At the editorial meeting, Alex actually spoke up even though as a junior she wasn’t meant to, but nevertheless, she made a suggestion. Now showing her ace, she explains to Gordon that she speaks fluent Italian, looks the part and used to live near Venice, she’s the perfect candidate for the story.

“How about a full-length expose on an ancient sex cult that still operates today?”

Alex hasn’t been back for years and has heard the rumours for longer than that. The group is apparently made up of the richest and most powerful people in Venetian society. Now all Alex has to do is find a way in.

Alex meets up with her childhood friend, Gianni and asks for his help. The only problem is that danger is just around the corner.

Will Gianni be able to help her with some leads? Will Alex find anything substantial? Who is the leader of this cult? Who is Cody Goodfellow really? Who is the killer?

Lord of Misrule #1 is an extremely well written, addictive and has such a fun woman protagonist. With a cliffhanger at the end, I needed more immediately. It’s a seat-of-your-pants type of read with intensity, a hot steamy scene and mystery galore. This is a definite read if you are after something quick, fun and intriguing with hot paranormal creatures. Let the mystery begin!
