    One thought on “Lustlocked”

    1. Very lighthearted fun. I mean, what else can you expect from a humorous fantasy featuring the feast of a goblin wedding from an error-laden crew of fantasy chefs that just happen to set off a horribly unfortunate scene of a magical sexy-time?The real treat is in the details, and there's plenty to love. Can you imagine that the goblins are actually the beautiful people? That the Goblin King is the very one we just recently lost, for real, and sadly? Not Prince. The other one. ; ; It put a slight [...]

    2. It's been awhile since I read any entries in the "Deadly Sins" series, so I had forgotten just how short a novella can feel. With that in mind, Wallace in heavy on the plotting and a little shy on world-building and character-building. Although he introduces characters from the first book, details on most are a little bit light, except for our nominal 'normal' lead of Cindy, introduced the first book and still dealing with the mental fallout of the job. At any rate, I thought it went quicker tha [...]

    3. 3 of 5 stars at The BiblioSanctum bibliosanctum/2016/03/20/nAfter the rip-roaring fun of Envy of Angels, I just couldn’t wait to be back in Bronko’s kitchen with all the gang. This time, things are really heating up as Matt Wallace serves up another course of humor-laden fare in Lustlocked, the second novella in the Sin du Jour series.Having proved themselves on their first job, Lena and Darren are subsequently offered full-time employment by executive chef Byron “Bronko” Luck. Now all t [...]

    4. The nitty-gritty: Another hilarious entry into the Sin du Jour world, with some of the funniest dialogue I’ve ever read.“Are you guys almost done down there?” he asks the impossibly small piece of composite concealed in his right ear. “I’m fuckin’ bored.”“Us ‘guys’ are rigging the final charge now,” Cindy’s irritated voice answers him over the earpiece.“Sorry,” he says. “Folks. People. Whatever. Nonoffensive gender neutral pronoun. When did you graduate from Feminis [...]

    5. Lustlocked is the second installment in Matt Wallace's Sin du Jour Affair series, which revolves around a New York catering company that caters to the supernatural elements of society. In the previous book, Envy of Angels, the chefs and crew hosted a diplomatic dinner sponsored by a secret government agency in an effort to stave off war between two demonic groups. Lustlocked picks up on the heels of that event, as the company prepares to host a grand goblin wedding under the supervision of the G [...]

    6. The staff of Sin du Jour return for the wedding of a Goblin prince & his soon to be princess, however, as with most weddings, something goes wrong. What? Your wedding didn’t have lusty lizards?Recommended.

    7. This story was provided to me by the publisher at no cost.An amusing, light and fluffy story. It's the second story to be set in the restaurant Sin du Jour, and I've not read the first; that didn't seem to be too much of a hindrance. I think I missed a little bit of the tension between characters (and initially I thought the two main characters were lovers, not housemates), but the cast is reintroduced well enough that I had no trouble following the various interactions. The basic premise is tha [...]

    8. 3 Stars Lustlocked the second novella of the Sin du Jour series was a pretty big let down to me after the amazing and fresh first book, Envy of Angels. This one was simply too short. It definitely was lacking in Salt, a cardinal sin. The world that Matt Wallace has created could be so much more. I can only hope that he puts together a full length novel of magical cuisine and pastries.Even though this book was not up to the standards set in book one, there is still a lot to like. Like others have [...]

    9. This series is so much fun! It's so twisted and strange. Dialogue is superbly done, and hits over and over again with some great lines that made me laugh. Looking forward to the 3rd in the series to be released in June.

    10. What is this about?: Lustlocked is the second book in Matt Wallace’s Sin Du Jour series, about a catering company that works for the supernatural. In this instalment Lena and Darren are back at Sin Du Jour and working for a Goblin King and his son’s wedding. In case you missed book 1, Lena and Darren are the very normal, human newbies to this whole world and readers’ POV into things.What else is this about?: There’s some progress on Lena and Darren’s characters and an ending that kind [...]

    11. I discovered this series when I received an ARC for the 3rd book. I decided to start from the beginning. See my review on Pride's Spell for my general thoughts and impressions about the series from the 3 book binge read. Most important one being that in many ways this series feels like a mashup of Spider Robinson's Callahan's Saloon series and Robert Asprin's M.Y.T.H. series in style and comic timing. The first is considered science fiction. The latter is fantasy. Sin Du Jour falls between. Dire [...]

    12. YET another home run by Mr Wallace, if you have not read Envy of Angels, fucking do it. It is a ton of fun and this keeps the fun and chaos at a demented and wild pace. Yes, I still don't like novellas, and yes, damnit.I dropped what I was reading to read this and burnt through it like it was a crack rock and I had the itch for the pipe, so there!No seriously, there is not nearly enough dark just wrong kind of fun in fantasy or scifi and this story and series has it in spades.I am kind of down s [...]

    13. Really enjoyed this, more than the first one. It hit the spot this week and I knew what to expect with the voice and humor. All these characters are effed up and whacky, but not caricatures or stereotypes, and all are *very* distinct people.I do think Wallace's style verges on telling instead of showing. Usually that is difficult for me to enjoy, but like I said, I think I knew what to expect with this one.Based on the ending of Lustlocked, I'm hooked for Sin du Jour #3, because I *need* to know [...]

    14. After Alex reviewed the sequel to "Envy of Angels", I HAD to know what happened next in the kitchens of Sin du Jour! And my whining on Twitter paid off!"Lustlocked" opens with an immensely enjoyable fishing expedition before switching to the continued adventures of Lena & Darren, roomies and new SdJ chefs. This episode, there's a goblin wedding to cater. Put that magic spell on me, slap that baby, make him free!Liked this almost as much as the first one. For fans of the Super Mario Bros movi [...]

    15. The second Sin du Jour affair is even more outlandish and delightful than the first. Wallace rounds out the cast, makes character moments amidst the zany antics, and ends the novella with one hell of a digestif.Is it time for the next one yet?

    16. Deliciously absurd in the best possible ways! No one makes me laugh with as much intensity as Matt Wallace does. Lustlocked is a worthy successor to Envy of Angels and I'm eagerly looking forward to the next Sin du Jour installment.

    17. Yet another delightful story from Matt Wallace. So much fun! Goblins! Movie stars! Goblins who are movie stars! The Goblin King himself! And food (less in this one than in Envy of Angels, though) and glee. So much glee.

    18. Not nearly as good as the first book, but an entertaining thrill ride right up to the cliffhanger ending. Fun series.

    19. I keep trying to write a review for this book that isn't full of spoilers and apparently I can't actually do it lol. I will just say that I've now read the first 3 books in this series and while they are all good this one was definitely my favorite. I just couldn't stop laughing, the comedic timing was so good.

    20. I always feel a bit awkward when my opinion of a book differs dramatically from the "norm", partly because I wonder if there's something I missed, but I did not enjoy this book much at all. It is the second in the series, and it is quite short, and I did pause halfway through to read something else, then returned to it, which may all have contributed to my lack of enjoyment.As the second in the series, having not read the first, I did not feel any connection to the characters that had clearly be [...]

    21. Thank you to Netgalley for a complimentary copy of this title in exchange for an honest review. I was immediately attracted by the cover of this book and it certainly didn't steer me wrong. This book was short, sweet and hilarious.The premise of a supernatural catering company which serves the less human and more magical members of society was an instant hit with me.In this book, the staff of Sin du Jour are catering to a goblin royal wedding. The goblins all happen to resemble famous celebritie [...]

    22. I judged a book by its cover on this one and chose Lustlocked because the art looked cool. I am so so glad I did. Matt Wallace has created a fantastical world where anything can and usually does happen. Just when you think you are getting a handle on the book's direction, it wooshes off somewhere else. I love that!This is the second book in the Sin Du Jour series, but I hadn't read the first one prior to picking this one up, and I don't think it mattered. I did go back and read it afterwards and [...]

    23. Ugh.So lets start with its even shorter than the first. Technically it is even shorter still, because the book ends, literally, 76% percent in. The rest of the book are excerpts posted on the TOR website of other excursions the acquisition team went on. The first chunk of it should have just been in its place in the book. The rest is wayward given the books ending. I would call it bonus material so why complain, only that it is counting towards the already very short page count. Sadly the story [...]

    24. Lustlocked is a spin on a "sex pollen" story. These are narratives where characters, because of magical or crazy science reasons, end up compelled to have sex with one another. I find these sorts of stories incredibly gross because hello massive sexual violation. And yet they are usually played for laughs as they are in this volume. I like the Sin du Jour series. The characters are fun and the set-up offers up endless possibilities for an urban fantasy, but this was lazy. It was also frustrating [...]

    25. What a kitchen, what a job!!! Sin du Jour is the best company in the world… hahaha.This 2nd book is great, crazier and much more fun; it made me laugh almost all the way (people stares at me whenever I’m in public).It has everything, plot, characters, rhythm and pace; Mr. Wallace is a modern writing bloodydamn genius; on one hand he created an acid/demon/magical universe that allows any kind of excess and on the other he has placed a bunch of characters (ingredients) among my favorites and t [...]

    26. Second book in a series, Lustlocked continues the adventures Lena and Darren along with the chefs, procurement agents, and magic users at the Sin du Jour catering company. The event this time is a royal Goblin wedding that goes awry when human guests get a taste of magic meant for the goblins. Fun in a strange fashion ensues that has to be read to be believed. Thankfully, no recipes are included. If you like comedic mashups of food, explosions, and magic, you are likely to enjoy Lustlocked.

    27. Lustlocked is the second in Matt Wallace’s Sin du Jour series, which began with the riotously funny Envy of Angels late last year. When I read the earlier volume, it was as part of my ongoing project of reading all of Tor’s new novellas, but I didn’t expect to like it much. Instead I found it quite enjoyable—smart and fast and a thoroughly fun read. I couldn’t wait for Lustlocked, and I was not disappointed.Read the full review at SF Bluestocking.

    28. A strange one, reminiscent of Artemis Fowl for adults. (view spoiler)[With a magical reptilian orgy at a wedding (hide spoiler)]. It started off promising and funny, but I lost interest about halfway through. It's a quick read and I finished it, but I would have enjoyed it more had the initial humour been sustained throughout the story.
