    Default Viper

    Anyone read the short story "Viper" in Mammoth...? Wow. Loved that story! The intro. to the book suggests that Viper's story inclusion is meant to provide us with additional info. on an already existing character---much like Quinn from the Riley series. Anyone know where Viper may have originated?

    You have much to look forward to. Some of the stories were a little off-beat for me, but I particularly liked the one mentioned below and "The Sacrifice". (I think Keri's writing has spoiled me, however...I had never been exposed to paranormal romance before her, so she's my standard now. And the Riley/Quinn chemistry is a tough act to follow!)

    Garon (character from The Sacrifice), however, has me warm and toasty in all the right places!

    Did I just say that?

    "Innocent" isn't something I typically consider myself (though my efforts are genuine!)

    Since my last post, I re-read "The Sacrifice" twice more. Also read the one called "Stand-up Dame" (I think that's the title) and liked it, as well, though for different reasons. It puts you in the mind of the 1940's gumshoe detective storyline w/ a darker twist. Kind of a new angle.

    From what it looks like on Delilah's site, Viper isn't part of any series. I couldn't find his name in any of her books' blurbs. It only mentions him on the page for The Mammoth Book of Vampire Romance page.

    Hey, guess what? A friend called me a little bit ago and told me Viper's character showed up in Delilah's book All Hallows Heartbreaker (of the Immortal Knight series). Not much on him, I think, which may be why she chose that character to expand a bit in the short story in Mammoth...

    Interesting. I got the whole "super sensitive vamp" vibe from the Mammoth story, but my friend tells me he's almost unlikeable in the above-mentioned story. I haven't read anything else of hers, have you guys?

    I loved the Sacrifice great story. I got the same feeling from Viper's story that he was all about feelings. hu who knows lol. I have read a few of Delilah Devlin's stories and I like them.

    That's cool that your friend knew where to find Viper in her books. You know, maybe in that book he was more of a tortured soul and that's why he had a mean attatude toward everyone which made him unlikeable. And that could be the reason Delilah decided to write about him for the short story. Just a though. lol
