Demons, werewolves, possessed bikers, madness spreading like a virus, and a revenge that has waited for over 500 years. What more could Gabby look for in a vacation spot?
Ninety years ago, Gabriella di Luca promised to protect the family of her dying lover. She failed to keep that promise. She was too far away to stop the devil that murdered the eldest Van Helsing son. Years later, Gabby learns the devil has resurfaced. She arrives in Hampton, TX, determined to stop the devil before it can lay a bloody hand on the remaining three brothers.
However, madness is spreading through Hampton. She suspects the devil is using this madness to test a drug which has a side effect of demonic possession. Gabby rushes to end the source of the madness only to fall victim to it. For a woman cursed with eternal life, dying is no threat. However, Gabby must stop the devil’s plot or risk losing her most precious possession: her mind.
A Prescription for Delirium is the first book in the Van Helsing Organization.
Gabriella di Luca is cursed with immortality and seeing the ones she love constantly die because she failed to protect them. She made a promise to her lover years ago to help protect his family, the Van Helsings that has a curse of their own. There are four Van Helsing brothers and she already failed the oldest one. It’s going to be a struggle to try to protect the other three. Esais, Tres and Adrian are the last Van Helsing descendants. Each brother is sworn to help protect humanity against the monsters out there. Gabriella struggles to teach them ways to protect themselves and more about the demons before it’s too late. Along the way she meets a woman, Marguerite, who has a demon contract out there that expires in five years. All of them band together to try to stop a demon’s plot from creating hybrids to roam the Earth. Each are haunted by their own demons and doubts but if they don’t work through them they risk losing their minds, bodies and souls.
An interesting and exciting supernatural ride. It reminded me of the show Supernatural and the movie Van Helsing. It was a different and unique take on the Van Helsing story. I enjoyed the story and characters. Each of the characters were real and had their own distinct personalities making them even more fun and enjoyable to read. My favorite character was Adrian. He was a bit more of a bad boy and wasn’t easily convinced.
The action sucked me in and kept me flipping page after page wanting to know what happens next. I wish there was more about the brothers and their past. I also would have liked to see more about the demons and monsters and how they fight them, more of the background and history.
Anyone looking for a supernatural thrill ride with a kick ass female lead should check this book out.
I rate this book 4 fangs.
Noree Cosper loves writing about magic in the modern world. While growing up in Texas she constantly searched for mystical elements in the mundane. She buried her nose in both fiction and books about Wicca, Religion, and Mythology. Everyday became an adventure as she joined a group of role-players, acting out her fantasies of vampires, demons, and monsters living in the world.
She embraced her nerdom wholeheartedly.
Noree grew, but never left her love for fantasy and horror. Her dreams pushed her and her hand itched to write the visions she saw. So, with her fingers on the keys, she did what her heart had been telling her to do since childhood. She wrote.
