[Archive] LITERAL ADDICTION's Review of The Asylum Interviews - Trixie

Jocelynn Drake The oldest of three kids, Jocelynn grew up and continues to reside in the Cincinnati, Ohio region.  She started writing when she was 12, spending all of one summer re-writing the story of Robin Hood in the battered remains of a notebook.  While life has brought many changes and surprises, the love of writing and a good story has been a constant.  When not writing she can be found buried in a good book, wandering through the woods with her camera cradled protectively against her body, traveling to interesting locations or relaxing with her family.

 The Asylum Interviews - Trixie, Book #.6 of the ASYLUM TALES series
Author:  Jocelynn Drake


Gage's ex-girlfriend is back in town and needs help escaping a master vampire. While not the easiest of tasks, he certainly didn't count of getting help from a mysterious woman with a few secrets of her own.
Our Review, by Michelle L. Olson – LITERAL ADDICTION’s Pack Alpha]:

The 2nd eNovella Prequel to Jocelynn Drake's highly anticipated ASYLUM TALES series, Trixie was another wonderful sneak peek into the upcoming world and characters. As Bronx did, Trixie just made me want Angel's Ink that much more!

Taking place 18 months following The Asylum Interviews - Bronx, The Asylum Interviews - Trixie starts off hot and heavy, picks up steam as the story continues, and ends with a bang.

Jo, Gage's ex-girlfriend and vampire is back in town and the two start off basically where they left off 2 years prior with a mutual lust and like. Jo has a problem though, and it takes Jo's friend Trixie - a closet elf and fellow tattoo artist - to bring Gage in on the situation.

Teaming up with Bronx again, as well as Trixie, Gage proceeds to do everything in his power to help Jo while still maintaining his status quo as the warlock-in-training-no-more.

I already like Trixie. She's high spirited, fiercly loyal, and shoots straight from the cuff, no holds barred, though she is somewhat dangerously spontaneous. She isn't afraid to tell Gage that he's being a prick or an a-hole, and does it on a regular basis throughout the story, and she definitely has some secrets that will be fun to unveil.

Ironically, just like I said in my review of Bronx, Gage is a good guy and a great friend, and his whole act of being the ultimate alpha-hole just doesn't stand up. He continues to be a wonderful leading alpha male for the series. He tries to distance himself from people by being sarcastic and rude, but what it all comes down to, is him just trying to protect everyone, even if that means from himself.

Bronx still holds a place close to my heart, even though he wasn't quite as featured in this tale he still grabbed my attention, and the three of them together - Gage, Bronx, and Trixie - both at Asylum and in their adventures conquering Low Town going forward should prove to be immensely exciting and revealing.

LITERAL ADDICTION gives The Asylum Interviews - Trixie 4 Skulls. I am so excited for a full length ASYLUM TALES novel now! October can't get here fast enough.
