    Felix Castor used to cast out demons for a living, and London was his stomping ground. But in a time when the supernatural realm is in upheaval and spilling over into the mundane world of the living, his skills are in renewed demand. With old debts to pay, Castor is left with no choice but to accept one final, well-paying assignment: a seemingly simple exorcism.

    "Castor captured my heart"
    Overall

    Mike Carey wrote more Castor novels after this, but The Devil You Know is the best of the series so far.
    Michael Kramer is an excellent narrator, giving life to each character and fitting the tone and style of the novel superbly. (I found him so good that when I read the next two novels of the series in paperback, I could hear Kramer's voice in my head - wonderful!)
    The birthday party is a fitting opening to Castor's story, giving just the right glimpse of his lifestyle, motives and sense of humor. All in all, an excellent alternate reality tale, putting a great spin on the concept of "were" kind. Succubus Juliet is beautifully rendered for all five senses.
    Sadly, Vicious Circle and Dead Men's Boots are not as good, but I liked The Devil You Know so much that I will give Thicker Than Water a try, even go so far as to order from the UK before it is even released in the states...
