First book in a new Paranormal Police Department series. Wren Cooper is a Shadow walker, among other things. A thief who steals from the stupid privileged people, Karma against bragging. With a crow familiar, who talks to her, it makes for amusing banter. As a look out, the Crow is useless, getting Wren caught by the P.P.D. Who instead of arresting her, recruit her to work for them. A bit more tame then the usually P.P.D. books, it still provides enough action to satisfy the loyal readers. I am looking forward to reading more about Wren and her adventures in New Orleans.
I really liked this introduction to Wren Cooper and the New Orleans PPD. She is an unusual character and a fun way to expand the PPD series. The story was interesting and I wanted to read more. I liked her supporting cast very much and I am quite looking forward to the next book in the series.
The blackbird familiar is a stitch. Wren is spunky and capable. The remainder of the supporting cast is engaging and the world building is good. You get to the end and they won a battle but they definitely did not win the war. Everything was pretty up in the air. I have a lot of questions which future books will probably answer.
I love all of the PPD series, but this one was slightly different. A white witch with cool powers being tasked to help the PPD. Brings a whole new element to the Worlds. I cant wait for more of this series.
Another solid entry in the quickly expanding "Ian Dex" world. I enjoyed this novel and it's take on the "Ocean's Eleven" style relatable almost good girl rogue pressed into working for good guys, though I do wish there had been more conflict both within herself, her heist supergroup, and within the PPD precinct she is beholden to when she is initially captured as it all seems to smooth over a little too easily. It started off a little slow for me, but gained traction about 40% through and finished strong. I like the characters and the villain and it sets up for a nice future story arc at the conclusion. I appreciated the noticeably reined in potty humor (the self-proclaimed "dick jokes" and more...) compared with most Logsdon multiverse novels. I'll be back for round 2
