From the Cover:
Someone is deliberately infecting bats with a deadly fungus. The flying mammals are dying by the thousands, and along with them, a significant number of vampires in bat form have also succumbed.
Enter John and Lauren Wright. The vampire couple has conquered evil enemies in the past, but the perpetrator behind the bat deaths is more cunning than any they’ve encountered. Though John initially suspects that werewolves are the culprits, he discovers he is up against a colony of Unseelie faeries. The intoxicating scent of the faeries has been known to deceive vampires, pitting friend against friend—and wife against husband.
When a good friend flies into John's house, dying from fungus poisoning known as white nose syndrome, John makes it his business to find out what's going on. The vampires are falling as quickly as their little furry friends, and it has to stop.
To find out, he'll have to go bat himself. He suspects the weres, but after investigating, it appears to have a fey connection. When his wife, Lauren gets suck into a fairy mound, he'll have to try something new and hope it works, or she'll forget him and their daughter forever.
Black Fang is an excellent tidbit of a read from Susan Blexrud. She gives us characters that while preternatural are all too human, with just enough humor to give the reader a few chuckles too. I very much enjoyed this new addition to her Love Fang books. Just what I needed between reads and after NaNoWriMo, the perfect little getaway, the perfect change of pace even if only for a few moments. Five out of five fairy kisses for this reader.
I received this book from the author, because that's just how she rolls (and besides, I had to read.... there were fairies involved....). Thanks Susan!! All opinions expressed are my own.
