Along came a spider…

When Trish Muffet is attacked at a grisly crime scene, the last person she expects to come to her rescue is Nicky “Little Boy” Blue. But since walking away from everything two years before, Nicky’s been doling out vigilante justice as “The Spider,” taking on the vicious predators of the night in hopes it’ll lead him to his ultimate target – Vlad Dracula. And he needs Trish’s help.

Although Nicky’s renegade style goes against everything Trish stands for, she’ll do what she must to bring Dracula down. With danger stalking her, Trish knows the only person she can count on is the one man who has the power to leave her breathless. There’s no way she’s letting this spider frighten her away…

I have NOT read the other two books in this series which I feel left me at a bit of a disadvantage on the back story. What intrigued me to pick up this book was the fact of the characters. Anything that can take fairy tales or nursery rhymes and twist them to give them a different and interesting stroy line make me want to see what is going on. It takes great imagination to take a classic loved childrens character and turn it into an adult in my opinion.

The story line was very good. I did feel that with Nick's dialogue I was being thrown back into the 1940's. I had to keep reminding myself that the timeline is present day.

You will find many other characters frrom other tales as other than nursery rhymes too. Which was very exciting for me. Fast paced plot that will keept you up guessing whats going on.

I will admit that it was ok as stand alone book but may have been stronger if I had read the previous books.
