I downloaded this book after checking out the reviews on Amazon and the reviews were not wrong!

Marcus Shifter(who does not belong to any council) is basically a "problem solver" who hires himself out dealing with anything magical/supernatural. This is a "well-humored" light read with a very likeable protagonist in Marcus Shifter who is quick with the sarcasm and never takes himself too seriously. This book reminds me a lot of the "Dresden Files" but on a much smaller scale. I think comparing the two head to head wouldn't be fair to "Undead Chaos"- they are not in the same league. Having said that this is a really "fun" book that's a great way to kill 9 hours and 48 minutes. By the way the narration was fantastic! William Dufris did a great job. I think Joshua Roots in on to something and although it does not state that this is book one I hope he writes a sequel. Well worth the 12 dollars you guys. Check it out!

Marcus Shifter, normally called Shifter, has a loving and talented family. His bringing did not run along the usual fashion of wizards, which puts in in disfavor of all the wizards. It does not matter how different he was raised. The important point is that his family has his back in a fight. And his parent can kick ass.
Taking a life is not an easy thing for Shifter to do, so many of his troubles come from the reluctance to take a life. So there is always a lot of soul searching when many times he needs to just shoot someone and get over it. The magical community is changing and more characters and situations will be added. As in real life, the big question is, what is a human are wizards and other paranormal included? Shifter has a united nations assortments of friends, so this issue will affect Shifter and who better than to make peace with the species.
