Blurb: Have you ever heard of a Bludman? They’re rather like you and me—only more fabulous, immortal, and mostly indestructible. (They’re also very good kissers.)
   Delilah S. Dawson’s darkly tempting debut drops her unsuspecting heroine into a strange faraway land for a romantic adventure that’s part paranormal, part steampunk . . . and completely irresistible.
   When Tish Everett forces open the ruby locket she finds at an estate sale, she has no idea that a deliciously rakish Bludman has cast a spell just for her. She wakes up in a surreal world, where Criminy Stain, the dashing proprietor of a magical traveling circus, curiously awaits. At Criminy’s electric touch, Tish glimpses a tantalizing future, but she also foresees her ultimate doom. Before she can decide whether to risk her fate with the charming daredevil, the locket disappears, and with it, her only chance to return home. Tish and Criminy battle roaring sea monsters and thundering bludmares, vengeful ghosts and crooked Coppers in a treacherous race to recover the necklace from the evil Blud-hating Magistrate. But if they succeed, will Tish forsake her fanged suitor and return to her normal life, or will she take a chance on an unpredictable but dangerous destiny with the Bludman she’s coming to love?
   Yes! Finally another book that I can honestly say is going on my favorite list! Wicked as they come is just so good that I can't wait to recommend it as a must read! If you like The Night Huntress series or Downside Ghost series this is the book for you! 
   It's almost like falling down the rabbit hole and ending up in wonderland, but there is no way to get this story confused with Alice in Wonderland because this world called Sang is dark and gritty! With a hot sexy Bludman named Criminy (who actually does remind me of the Mad Hatter!) who's a magician and a gypsy king! (YUMMMM!)
