Oil and water is a paranormal adult romance that also has thriller and suspense elements mixed in to the plot. The world-building of the vampire society was amazing, I really enjoyed reading about the entire levels of hierarchy between vampires and their rules. It follows the story of two women; Opal, a seductive and dangerous vampire who also happens to be one of the strongest vampires alive, and Elsie, a ordinary human girl who loves reading about vampires. The story has some strong elements such as mentions of sexual abuse, profanity, gory deaths, which for me was very well portrayed in the plot.
I enjoy a darker and more intense adult read and was satisfied with how the plot highlights issues in society. The novel has elements of female empowerment, which delighted me, characterized by strong female leads fighting against abuse and rape. The plot twists in the novel are incredible. It was very well planned out throughout the story and giving you hints there and there. The author definitely knows how to build-up suspense and keep the reader intrigued. I will keep an eye out for future novels from this author!
