Review: Neon White E1 by Wulf Francu Godgluck

Belail took another drag from the blood tinted clove cigarette, the puffs of putrid smoke swirling to show the chosen image again. "So, the former High Commander of Second Hell has finally set his heart on Raven White."

Such pity that the dear Detective assigned to enforce supernatural and paranormal cases in Quebec would be chosen by this particular demon.

Bla'Gar is well… different.

Another drag, another puff. Relishing the new image of a chained Raven; withering in pleasure on Bla'Gar's Hellfire bed.

Clearly a scenario that would keep Belail entertained… for now.
One to watch; intriguing to see at what lengths Bla'Gar would go to court the human Detective. And possibly… feasibly claiming the human's soul for Bla'Gar himself?

Licking his lips Belail returned to the shadows from once he came. Scoffing his barbarous thoughts to the darkness. Though it would be fair to say that supers and paras aren't the only ones that have teeth, claws and horns.

Well, this story certainly is fresh.

No spoilers in this review.

This story felt like a snippet, just a little look and a promise of something more. But with episode 2 on the horizon, if you set your sights on episode 1, I'd suggest buying both so that you can read them side by side.

Pretty unique premise, despite these paranormal cop/mystery novels popping up all around me lately. If you're on my Goodreads, you likely know that's not exactly my genre, but here I am, stepping out of my designated comfort zone, and you know what? I'm happy I did.

Bla'Gar and Belail are quite a hot couple (although, I'm using the term couple loosely, at the moment), and I can't wait to read more of them in the next book. I think there's a definitely chemistry, especially one that's a little more dom/sub, but it works well in this short.

This story was quite raw, and it was definitely filled with, and ended with, tension, which is fantastic and left me wanting more. I felt like this is a really interesting world, and I could've definitely used some more world building. I want to know more about the time and the place, and the feels of it in its entirety. Keep in mind the length of this book, though. So I'm hoping the next book will delve even deeper into this world and the beings that inhabit it.

I must say that there are some editing issues. They aren't too distracting from the story, since it's so unique and fast-paced, but I felt a small need to mention them.

Oh, and btw, I think this series has a really bitchin' name.

My next review for Episode 2 will likely be more in depth because I'll have more of the story to base my review on. Check back for that on October 30th.
