A witch has come to Las Vegas, Nevada, taking over a casino and luring gamblers to a fate worse than death. Supersoldier Mark Kenslir heads West to find out just what is going on in the one safe-place designated for America's supernatural citizens--a place the Stone Soldiers are not authorized to deploy. Operating off the books with his grandaughter, pregnant wife and Vampire M.D. in tow, Kenslir must brave a Hellish tower of decadence and prove that the Strip needs its Amnesty revoked.Thoughts on A Lucky Day To Die: Not going to lie, Detachment 1039 always brightens my day with the wacky shenanigans they find themselves in. Sure, technically, Kenslir was working off the record on this one. And sure, all the various women in his life were put in some sort of peril, BUT THOSE THINGS HAPPEN WHEN YOU DO BATTLE WITH CRAZY SUPERNATURAL THINGS!
*ahem* Right. So. Las Vegas. The place where crazy is normal. The place where supernaturals can hang out and anything can be gambled away. Even their souls. As a public service announcement, never trust a scantily clad woman who just wants you to sign on the dotted line as a technicality. That never ends well, my friends. Never.
Beyond the soul-sucking, THINGS HAPPEN in this book. THINGS. We see more of Josie's ever-expanding powers (if you could bottle that girl's power output, you'd be set for life!), see a softer (albeit just as bloody as ever) side of vampire Laura, and get a little resolution to the relationship between Kenslir and his wife.
Oh, and there's fighting. Lots and lots of fighting. It's gloriously bloody. And decapitate-y. I always say, if you're going to remove someone's head, do it with your bare hands. It's so much more satisfying that way.
Fun, with a side of gore. Just the way I like it.
