Three supernatural women come together to fight evil and save their land in Wright’s fairy-tale-inspired horror-fantasy YA novel.
Seventeen-year-old Snow White has pale skin, dark hair, rose-red lips, and a thirst for blood. The vampire princess has lived with her need to feast on others since birth, but unlike other vampires, she has a soul and can freely walk in sunlight. Her mother died long ago, and after marrying her evil stepmother, her father lost his life as well. Now, her stepmother is holding the throne until Snow White comes of age; the older woman plots against the younger, spreading vicious rumors about her. She also has her groundskeeper take Snow White into the Forbidden Forest, where, after telling her the truth about her stepmother, he dies while saving her from bandits. Snow White soon finds she’s not completely alone, however, when she meets teenage vegan werewolf Red Riding Hood. The two aren’t safe for long, as they must fight a group of vampires and then escape from Red Riding Hood’s angry werewolf pack, including her furious grandmother. They first make their way to a cabin on a mountain where seven brothers offer them safety and shelter for a time. If the young women can escape their enemies’ clutches, they’ll have to go to the Charming Kingdom to meet up with teenage Cinderella, a good witch in training. Wright has created a fantastical setting with intriguing reinventions of classic tales, transforming their characters into modern, spunky heroes. Each shows brand-new complexity; for example, Snow White’s heart of gold is juxtaposed with her vampiric needs. The story is full of memorable side players as well, including the Grim, a talking cat who helps Snow White on her journey. The work is further aided by Wright’s excellent use of humor, as well as action scenes that pack a punch: “The huge gamekeeper swung his axe once again, catching another bandit across the body. The man let out a bloodcurdling scream as another bandit rushed up behind Garth and sunk his rusty sword into the gamekeeper’s back.”
An exciting fantasy tale with entertaining reinventions of classic characters.

A bounty hunter who happens to be a dragon chases down demonic ne’er-do-wells in this erotic fantasy romance.
Wright, the author of Lucifer’s Daughter (2019), sets his tale in a world where legendary magical beings, appalled by environmental destruction, have emerged from hiding to put mankind in its place. As a result, humans are a marginalized underclass on the bottom rung of a society riven by class and ethnic conflict, featuring thuggish goblin gangsters, elf sex workers, and a ruling elite of bigoted fairies under the cruel Queen Velocity. Policing things is Sin, a San Francisco bounty hunter who looks like a 5-foot-3-inch, redheaded, green-skinned, attractive human woman, but she’s also a tough-talking dragon with unobtrusive wings, a 9mm handgun for when talking won’t do, and a relatively good heart, which is rare among “supernaturals.” Velocity hires Sin and her partner, Sebastian, a 6-inch-tall imp, to investigate the case of a murdered werewolf found in a sealed chamber. Their sleuthing leads to the succubus Aezriane, who enters the dreams of men to collect their semen; she does so by means so pleasurable that they don’t mind much when she offs them afterward. The paranormal investigators also uncover a plot to breed a race of superdemons and overthrow fairy supremacism. Complicating the case is Sin’s affair with Velocity’s son Fallon and the presence of Fallon’s fiancee, Rose, a haughty noble-fairy who tags along. Wright’s yarn feels a bit like a reboot of Buffy the Vampire Slayer as written by Mickey Spillane, with lots of grungy atmosphere, brutal but piquant characters, a beguiling femme fatale, and punchy dialogue, as when Sebastian says, “Oh gross. Dog meat. We could have gone to a nice place that served cat or even human.” Sin also gets explicit sex scenes—“I rode from one orgasm to another screaming out each one as he wrapped his arms around me, refusing to let me escape from the crests that racked my body”—in which her blithe wantonness clashes somewhat with her usual hard-boiled, wisecracking cynicism. However, Wright’s skillful prose and storytelling hold things together to deliver an imaginative page-turner.
A rollicking blend of noir detective story and offbeat erotica with a twist of magic.
