    Story
    (82)

    Emma Bannon, forensic sorceress in the service of the Empire, has a mission: to protect Archibald Clare, a failed, unregistered mentath. His skills of deduction are legendary, and her own sorcery is not inconsiderable. It doesn't help much that they barely tolerate each other, or that Bannon's Shield, Mikal, might just be a traitor himself. Or that the conspiracy killing registered mentaths and sorcerers alike will just as likely kill them as seduce them into treachery toward their Queen.

    "Not a Lilith Saintcrow classic"

    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I am not sure


    What was most disappointing about Lilith Saintcrow’s story?

    The characters were flat


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Moira Quirk?

    Someone with a little more flair.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Iron Wyrm Affair?

    Its so hard to choose


    Any additional comments?

    I have been a fan of Lilith Saintcrow fan for quite sometime and have read many of her books and this one just didn't catch me. I would rather her do a Demon Librian series as opposed to Bannon and Clare. I think I will try this in paperback it might be more exciting.

    There are some odd things about Nate’s new apartment. Of course, he has other things on his mind. He hates his job. He has no money in the bank. No girlfriend. No plans for the future. So while his new home isn’t perfect, it’s livable. The rent is low, the property managers are friendly, and the odd little mysteries don’t nag at him too much. At least, not until he meets Mandy, his neighbor across the hall, and notices something unusual about her apartment. And Xela’s apartment. And Tim’s. And Veek’s.
