I can't seem to put this all in a coherent string of sentences.  So instead we have my "notes" I typed out a week? two? ago for the post I originally intended to write...

  • The phrasing and feel reminded me of The Big Sleep by Raymond Chandler.
  • Mix of urban fantasy and mystery and dare I say noir? see above.
  • Reminded me a bit of the books by Harry Connolly, etc.
  • World of goblins, faerie, angels of Salvation, Dukes of Perdition, and of course, humans.
  • Zach Monday, Tim, Baxter, Audrey, ex-wife Carin
  • Next, Monday and the Apocalypse Engine
Did you have trouble making sense of that?  Basically the book reminded me of some other male authors in the fantasy and mystery genres.  I enjoyed it - the story, the world, the characters, the overall book.  (Minus the romantic relationship stuff, but that was a small issue.)  And I intend to read the next book in the series.  Hopefully it won't be as hard to obtain (without purchasing, which simply isn't feasible).


  1. You lost me on noir. Not sure why, but that's a genre I dislike.

    1. I couldn't read it back to back, but I do enjoy the occasional noir feeling book. I'm not sure if I've read anything that was ENTIRELY noir before yet.


Please feel free to comment. I love to hear from you!
