I like this Book very much, and as much as I like urban fantasy, it's one of the better I have enjoyed. My only real problem with the book and the ser..Show More »ies as far as I can tell, is the fact that the stories are way too short! Four hours and 40 some odd minutes does not make for a satisfying series! Still, it's a fun afternoon's listening pleasure!
This three book series ( so far...) rivels Jim Butcher's Dresden series! Alex and Felicity's adventures is soom of the best reading ( hearing ? au..Show More »dio book after all ) I have experienced in a long time. I wait with bated breath for book number four.
This continues to be one of my favorites Supernatural / Paranormal novels. This story is more of Alec being a man of his word. We see what he will do ..Show More »to keep it and emotionally, what it takes from him if he fails. When this series started, Alec was a reluctant PI is the small city of Dearmont Main. What the Society of Shadows decided was his inability to follow orders, and he decided was a matter of doing the right thing, got him demoted to Main and placed with a baby sitter, Felicity.
Alec’s character continues to grow, and this book adds more dimension to him. His relationship with Felicity has the potential to become romantic, and they both are doing thinking about that. While he is still ambivalent about the society and his father, he is still willing to work for the greater good. Upon learning valuable information, he does not hesitate to tell his father. Again the Society keeps him on the peripheral and does not share what happen to his father.
Alec still is torn over what his father did to him as a child and what he as a child, was unable to do for his mother. These issues are the at the core of Alec. They keep him fighting and from leaving the past behind. My mother says, every good-bye ain’t gone and every shut eye ain’t sleep.
I am so glad Mr. Wright, the author, has added dimension to Mr. Scary. For nothing else, read this for the Mr. Scary insight. I thought Mr. Scary was just background information for Mallory. From this installment, it seems that story line will be included in the series with active participation by Alec.
Leon has turned out to be a pretty good fighter. Hey, when you are rich and bored, what can you do for a hobby. Kill monsters sounds good. But you are not happy when there is not phone reception. There are more realms than fairy and man. Alec and Leon has an opportunity to explore another realm.
The sister witches make an appearance and at no cost to Alec. Being a guinea pig does have its advantages.
There is fighting, gore and suspense of the count down to doom. Those are things that we expect from a Harbinger P.I and this does not disappoint. I have read many paranormal novels, and it is always great to see when a villain gets his comeuppance and when an ass hold unbeliever becomes a believer. Yep, that happens here.
