Three of Mario Avecedo’s most loved novels in the Felix Gomez series include:

Werewolf Smackdown: The fifth novel of the detective mystery horror series by Mario Acevedo is one of its most popular. Felix Gomez the lead in the series gets a call from Eric Bourbon about a job. Bourbon happens to be a very successful attorney and werewolf from out of town who is visiting Charleston on a revenge mission. He needs to kill Randolph Calhoun his biggest rival and also fellow werewolf. Felix wants nothing to do with the plan and rejects the job, only to find himself caught in the cross fire between rival werewolf factions. It is not easy for Felix given that his ex-girlfriend happens to be an employee of Randolph Calhoun. For Gullah Gullah the vampire gangster, Felix needs to stay away from any of the werewolf fights given that he is a vampire. What the two do not know is that their involvement may just decide who becomes Charleston’s top werewolf.

The Undead Kama Sutra: The third novel of the series is one of its most appreciated. The lead in the series is Felix Gomez a man that had returned from the Iraq War a different kind of man. He had gone to Iraq human and came back a vampire, though not many of his close family and family knew about his changed status. Given his new powers and skills, he decides to become a private detective in the underworld of the undead, dealing with the supernatural, the sexy, and the sordid. He survives x-rated bloodsuckers, nymphomaniacs, and aliens, but now thinks he needs to go on vacation. Just as he is leaving, he learns that the US government has entered into a conspiracy with some aliens, and it is only him who has the power to stop the fiendish cabal from auctioning earth’s women. But the cabal will not take it lying down, as they send a hit man to take him out alongside his partner Carmen the bodacious vampire expert. With so much power against them they may have taken on more than they can handle.

Jailbait Zombie: In the fourth novel of the series, the vampire higher ups order Gomez to investigate what seems to have been a zombie attack in Northern Colorado. A small Colorado town seems to have borne the brunt of a zombie invasion with the creatures popping up all over town. Felix needs to establish what is drawing the zombies to the town before they cause too much harm. His investigations sees him face up to a countryside kingpin, a manipulative psychopath with a death wish, and a genius doctor that seems to have gone insane. Unlike the other novels where Felix had to take on just one vampire, this is different as he often finds himself in the crossfire between the vampires and zombies. Even as he is a super-fast and strong vampire, outfighting or outrunning a horde of zombies is probably one of the biggest challenges he has ever had to face.
