    • I found this book pretty terrible, but at times (key phrase here, 'at times') in that so-bad-it's-amusing way. Some flaws amused more than others. Tense switching occurred in some scenes where I presume the author was trying to involve the reader in the action - but jarring confusion was the result instead. I wish the author had stuck to past tense, or at least been more consistent in tense switching during action moments.More amusing were the eye-roll-inducing stereotypes and ethnic fetishes. T [...]

    • I only got to page 100 before give up - it was like trying to follow someone with a bad case of ADD and the writing abilities of a 5th grader. By page 60, the main characters had a date go terribly wrong, sorry her henceforth undiscovered twin carved up on a CSI show; had her dog die of blood poisoning; effectively lost her job/beat as a reporter; lost her house due to the actions of her co-worker - a weather witch - for no real reason whatsoever; mentioned 45 gazillion times that her Snow White [...]

    • A strange phenomena--when an author changes style or direction, there's often a violent knee-jerk reaction from fans to the shift. You constantly see people complaining about an author doing the same old, same old. Yet, let a writer give you a fresh premise, a plot totally unlike anything she's done before and readers surprisingly scream, 'burn the witch'. I think readers--fans--often seek long time authors out for 'comfort food'. The books may not be exciting, but you know what your money is go [...]

    • Very mixed feeling about this. For one thing, the author has written more than 50 novels and won more than 50 writing awards, yet the writing in this is pretty crummy pretty often. There are many odd transitions, sudden topic changes and just weird moments that left me really confused. For another thing, the author's bio at the end makes a big point about her writing about strong women. Yet Del is a complete victim, from every part of her childhood, to the inexplicable beginning of this book whe [...]

    • I'm more partial to werewolves than vampires, and it was great to find this book. While there were a few confusing elements in the story, overall it was entertaining, and I'm looking forward to the next book in the series (hopefully there will be one).

    • I've enjoyed novels by Carole Nelson Douglas in her Midnight Louie series and her Irene Adler series, but her first Delilah Street Paranormal Investigator novel Dancing with Werewolves left me cringing. I liked some of the characters and elements of the world building in a short story featuring Delilah Street, in a near-future Las Vegas saturated with supernaturals. Douglas's idea of CinSims -- famous movie characters personalities overlaid onto zombies -- was particularly original and perfect f [...]

    • To tell you the truth, I couldn't finish this book. I got to about one third into the book before quitting, as an English teacher of mine once said, "life is too short to read shitty books."The writing was very poor. Everything was scattered, there was no real flow. When writing is that bad, I can't even go on without cringing.The plot wasn't that interesting either.I won't recommend this book to anyone. Luckily, I got rid of it via PBS.

    • After 65 pages of asking myself "What the hell is going on?" I decided to abandon. The storyline was all over the place, it was nonsensical, and didn't interest me at all. And what's up with the 70's cover? This was just bad.

    • I liked this one a lot though it felt incomplete. The mystery of who the dead bodies were wasn't wrapped up - though I'd guess it will be revisited. Lots of action and a smart, snarky heroine.

    • A tiny sliver of me would like to give this a 3, because for a few pages, it was a fun read.The rest of me wanted to give it a 1. We compromised at 2.Where to start? If I had to sum this book up in one word, it would "sloppy." Sloppy editing - typos like I don't usually see outside my own typing. Not the author's fault, of course. But as for the sloppy writing again: where to start???The protagonist:Is she a split personality? How can "Irma" be in control enough to make shopping decisions?Is she [...]

    • Interesting concept that the millenium didn't bring the end of the world, but brought all the werewolves, vampires, etc. out into public. Kim Harrison uses a similar premise in her novels. But Carole Douglas puts a slightly different twist on it. The book was kind of fun and I'll probably read more of the series. Douglas also writes the Midnight Louie mysteries and another series I want to try, which is the Irene Adler one. Love her pet Quicksilver.Delilah Street was raised in an orphanage, neve [...]

    • Okay let me be fair here--the first9 chapters are like listening to someone monologue their life. Its a bit repetitive, somewhat awkward and stiff, but interesting enough. Around Chapter 10 however, when Delilah lands herself in Las Vegas (for various reasons), it starts getting more interesting. We have much more interaction with people other then herself, the blossoming of her paranormal skills and heck its Las Vegas. That's interesting for me.Unfortunately the narrative remains scattered and [...]

    • I found this book interesting and aggravating at the same time. Paranormal investigator Delilah Street is one of those females that something is always happening to - getting attacked by werewolves (more than once), getting kidnapped by werewolves, being held captive again by werewolves, getting arrested for no reason. It seemed like everyone wanted a piece of her whether it was sexual or not, she wasn't safe anywhere. It got annoying after a while. The story seemed to drag on and on back and fo [...]

    • I'll start off by saying that I am a avid Urban Fantasy reader and very rarely leave a book unread once started. With that being said I actually did finish this book but only because it has that certain train wreck quality. Most of the book's writing style is so strange that I was left feeling confused and lost after almost every paragraph. Besides the strange writing style there were so many bizarre concepts and metaphors tossed in that I really started to wonder if I was reading a novel where [...]

    • I really like Douglas's Midnight Louie mystery series and I like this new shift of hers. This first in what looks like will be an enjoyable series had a lot I liked: a great combo of urban fantasy, adventure, romance, alternate history, and mystery genres, it takes place in Las Vegas, new twists on vampires and werewolves, a female star with a lot of character and new, interesting magical abilities, a large, interesting supporting cast, and well written love scenes. I'm definately looking forwar [...]

    • This book was incredibly awkward - the writing was awkward, the characters were awkward, parts of the plot were awkward. Most of the other 1-3 star reviews have already covered my complaints. I picked this up at the library, and they have the second one, so I decided to pick that one up as well just to see if the writing gets better.I expect authors to be able to spell their own characters' names consistently, and when they don't, that is a big no no to me. This author had some issues in that re [...]

    • Just couldn't do it. I made it through 6 chapters, less than 50 pages. I just didn't understand the point. Del apparently sees her doppelganger on CSI, and since her life in Kansas is going down the crapper she heads to Vegas. Weird I tell ya. Also, I read the ending, and I wasn't that impressed with that either. I also skimmed and found a sex scene, and even that wasn't impressive. Overall, I'm glad I didn't waste much time on this book.

    • I wanted to give the book a chance, but I decided to take the hint that I would not be able to finish it after I put it down and did not pick it back up for days. I have other books waiting for me and this one just got in the way. Oh and Ric is annoying, and every other character. And am I supposed to like the guy who let Delilah live in his house?

    • Eminently forgettable, unfortunately. Not bad, but it's only been a couple of months since I read it & I had to read the description to bring back any real memory of it. So the writing wasn't terrible, but the story line wasn't that interesting, either.

    • See my review for "Brimstone Kiss" where I give a very short synopsis of "Dancing With Werewolves", the first book in the Delilah Street series that leads to "Brimstone Kiss". A complex blend of mystery, paranormal, romance, suspense, action, and Hollywood trivia!

    • First in the Delilah Street, Paranormal Investigator urban fantasy series based in Las Vegas and revolving around an intrepid reporter turned investigator. My Take Douglas sets up the series in this story and I'm torn. Part of me is irritated with her uneven writing but a larger part of me [no pun intended!] is intrigued with her cast of characters and where Douglas intends to take it.Douglas has so much going on: Delilah discovering her psychic side along with the mirror abilities as well as he [...]

    • Delilah Street, named from the intersection she was orphaned at, had no past. So, when she watched her reoccuring nightmares come to life on a popular tv show, Las Vegas CSI, she was confused and curious. Clone, Twin, Doppleganger? Delilah didn't know. But, the woman being autospied on the table was the spitting image of her, right down to the blue topaz nose stud. Delilah's evening had gone from stange to bad, when her co-worker / vampire boyfriend hid razor blades in the stems, of the roses he [...]

    • As if the Y2K bug wasn't enough to freak people out about the turn of the millenium, the supernaturals decided to come out of the closet. Now years later they're a pretty normal part of everyday life. Enter Delilah Street, Kansas TV reporter who investigates the happenings of the furred, fanged and just plain weird. Abandoned at birth Delilah grew up in a Catholic orphanage and has a lot of odd issues stemming from some vampire related 'maybe-I-lost-my-virginity-maybe-I-didn't' event. When her h [...]

    • Reading this is like listening to a 1940s cliché machine just roll over your brain. The constant barrage of metaphors, similes and clichés is just bad writing. I'm Snow White, now I'm Dorothy, and the way she bloats the tiniest description up means I honestly don't get what she means at all. It becomes a puzzle to figure out something unimportant. It's like she highlights the worst part of her writing which is that she isn't showing anything, just telling it in some garbled slang that only she [...]

    • Dancing with WerewolvesBy Carol Nelson DouglasThis book was just okay, but nothing to convince me to keep reading the series. It is rather snarky and quirky which might appeal to some including me but ultimately, it just didn’t win me over. There are so many urban fantasies out there including the entire subgenre of snarky girl and a narrative with a light careless tone despite all the death and destruction. Urban fantasy has become so huge that yes now there are even subgenres of it.Like so m [...]

    • I had a hard time deciding how to rate this as I’m still not actually sure if I liked it or not.The story is pretty good and I like where it is going, but there is a lot that is going on throughout the book and sometimes it is hard to follow. It took me quite a while to even really get into the story because there are so many metaphors and similes and random comparisons that sometimes just do not make sense or send you off track and you have to go back after reading a couple of paragraphs to f [...]

    • I have no idea if the copy I had was badly written or if the author was just that bad at writing. The book is a giantic question.The book started its charm on me by leaving me in the clouds because I had no clue what the hell was going on. I mean, was it a human corpse she was taping? Or something else? Next scene left me thinking: if she never liked him, then why the HELL did she date him? If her damn gorgeous lily-white skin had ALWAYS incited vamps into chewing on her like a dog toy, then why [...]

    • I was all set to give this book at least three stars until I hit the ending. Talk about a cliff hanger. There is absolutely no resolution in this book. Instead you are given a mystery book about the murder of two young people only to find out half of the story before bang its over! Oh and that's not the only mystery that wasn't solved. The whole book is full of mysteries that we never even get a peak as to what is going on. The other mysteries you have are:What is Delilah Street, and where did s [...]
