This is the start to an Urban Fantasy series featuring the son of one of the Fates (greek mythology). Nyx Fortuna is in Minneapolis to hunt down his thread of fate and to exact revenge on his Aunties (the fates- the Wyrd sisters) for trying to kill him and destroying his mother.
Hmmmm, I have to say I didn't really get into this series. Alot of the time Nyx does stuff that made absolutely no sense to me (oh, Naiad infested lake that also features razor-tooth water hags; after a quick look around showing no one near, I'll take a swim anyway) and while he professes in the beginning nothing but hatred for his Aunties and a desire to end his own life and theirs (although I never got why he wanted to end his own life)that conveniently disappears once the big bad is removed.
I felt like part of the book was Nyx going in circles from job to job and coffee house to coffee house falling in love with Elizabeth for no apparent reason I could see, and then hanging with sorceror-son-of-his-boss Talbot. Actually, hanging with Talbot was probably the most interesting, banter-trading bits of the whole book.
I think the series has potential, but possibly got too bogged down in showing nebulous bits of time passing where Nyx seemed strangely passive and willing to take very huge risks (while protesting these risks were dangerous) about being near the very Aunties he is being hunted by.
I'd also want a more intense emotional connection between Nyx and his inner circle.
This Book's Snack Rating: Lay's for the thinness of the plot devices on a still fun-to-crunch mythos in an Urban Fantasy
