It’s nice to race along, reading your standard urban fantasy stories, noming them down like the lovely, greasy, meaty burgers - sometimes with all the fixings - that they can be. Then... BAM. (Heh)
You find yourself parked in front of what looks like a burger, but it turns out is a seasoned and aged steak, tender and flavorful, on a brioche bun, served with some truffle fries, micro greens, and other things. An item of rare and unexpected quality, leaving you delighted and willing to share with everyone else the source of such a gem.
This story is just that. The brilliant word economy to describe a situation or person without needless fluff, the visceral action without too much gore / sex / vulgarity (but just the right amounts), the dialogue that illuminates character’s personalities, and the consistent thread of humor that lifts it all up just a tad higher... yeah. Not only do you come to root for the MC, but you’ll stay to watch every side character.
And the editing! Solid, polished editing. Awesome.
Seriously, a very good a polished story. Great work. Outstanding, in all the good ways. What’s more, while this book easily stands on its own, it turns out that its only the first book in the series. So hey: looks like I need to buy some more books.
Honestly: if you are any sort of urban fantasy fan - or if you just want to read a good book - then you need to pick this one up. Highly recommended.
