Felix Gomez, detective-vampire, jumps into an adventure too big for planet Earth! He’s got to rescue the hyper-sexual vampire Carmen Arellano from the clutches of ruthless warrior aliens who need her to regain their mojo before they die out. Escaping her desperate captors proves the easy part because Felix and Carmen must next square off against the deadliest threat ever to the vampire underworld-- Phaedra, that clairvoyant bloodsucker with superpowers--and it’s a race against annihilation. Fortunately, Felix is not alone. Jolie, that pistol-packing redheaded vampire, is at his side, as is everyone’s favorite down-and-out trickster, Coyote. It’s a no-holds brawl involving extraterrestrial treachery, Hopi magic, Navajo skin-walkers, Mexican phantasms, and a shady paramilitary conspiracy. Mayhem and outrageous hijinks were never so much fun.

About the Book

Planet Pleasure. The one place in the galaxy you seriously want to avoid, but it’s the next stop for Felix Gomez, detective-vampire and undead enforcer. His mission: rescue the bodacious vampiress, the hyper-sexual Carmen Arellano, from the clutches of ruthless warrior aliens. Her captors have doomed themselves by honing their military prowess at the expense of their libido, and Carmen is their last chance in regaining their mojo before they die out. Felix can’t waste any time because Phaedra, the ruthless bloodsucking ingénue–now with extra-superpowers–is making good on her threat to destroy the Araneum and take over the undead underworld. Luckily, Felix is not alone in his quest to save Carmen and stop Phaedra. That redheaded whirlwind with a gun, Jolie, has got his back. Also lending a hand is everyone’s favorite down-and-out trickster sage, Coyote, and he’s brought along his mom…la Malinche…aka La Llorona! Here it comes, ground zero of a mega-ton story bristling with action, interstellar double-crosses, skin-walkers, Hopi magic, and trigger-happy goons. Exactly what you’d expect from Felix Gomez.
