Cheryl Erikson doesn’t like playing DEA agent, but when a dangerous new drug named Plast finds its way onto the streets of Dallas, and the dealers just happen to be vampires, then she has to take action.
With the help of her best friend Virgil, and a mysterious Vampire Hunter named Rev, Cheryl must work to eradicate Plast from the streets of Dallas. It’s a task that becomes more difficult as she dodges assassination attempts; evades a nosy police detective who wants to peg her for a triple homicide; figures out what a shadow government organization wants from her; as well as deal with a powerful vampire who has a sudden interest in her activities.
Her path takes her through the Spiral X nightclub, where everything she thinks she knows, and everything she stands for, is challenged in ways she never imagined.
I just finished reading Spiral X by J.J. Westendarp and am at a slight loss for words that can explain how much I enjoyed reading this book. From the moment I began reading it, I was instantly pulled in and held captive in the world that Mr. Westendarp has created. Spiral X has all of the qualities that make it a must read book. The main character, Cheryl, is everything I expect to find when reading about a woman vampire hunter. She is strong, confident, and can take care of herself in any situation while at the same time being vulnerable and fragile, if only to her own fears and doubts. But at the end of the day she always pulls through and proves that some things in life are worth fighting for no matter how much you have to give up in return. Throw in a best friend who knows Cheryl for who she really is, a mysterious vampire hunter named Rev, and loads of butt kicking action and you have all the ingredients to make an amazing story. Spiral X is a tragic yet beautiful story that you will enjoy reading over and over. I hope that Mr. Westendarp will continue with Cheryl’s story and will most certainly be waiting in line to get a copy!
