Publisher's Summary

I am Blair Sheach, and my life will never be the same. Newfound powers don't make a hero overnight, but somehow I've become the last line of defense for the city of London. Vampires and demons crawl the streets, magic cops suck at keeping them in line, and the easy job I took to pay my rent has turned into something far more complicated. The cheating deadbeat my client hired me to find just so happens to be the necromancer hell-bent on destroying London, and it's up to me to stop him.

I'm out of luck and out of time. And to save my city, the decision I have to make is one I can't take back.

A fun story and fun performance

The Story

This is a fun story. Great lead and supporting characters, great plot full of adventure and with nicely done humour, all well written and very enticing. This is definitely a series to watch, a truly fun ride - and I'm looking forward to the next story.

The Performance

Gemma Dawson was a neat choice for narrator. I was actually surprised with the choice of a British speaker but her voice was clear, sharp and expressive and the British accent really gave a London setting for the listener's imagination. Loads of fun.

Pretty sure there's a lawsuit in here...

So we have a poor wizard PI in modern day, whose magic messes with electronic, has a cop best friend that works supernatural cases, a disembodied guide of great knowledge, a loyal servant of God that fights like knights of old, fights a necromancer that has to keep a beat to move undead, gives her name (which of course have power) to suspect sources and at the end befriends small creature that's obsessed with common place goodies....

Switch genders and place in America and you have Dresden files.

Mind you, the narrator is great. The main character is great. And for a first book of a series it does a good job. But I'm just going to think of it as Dresden Files fanfic going forward.

Feels like Dresden Fan Fiction evolved

While not a bad book, I felt there was a lot of elements that probably started off as a Harry Dresden Fan fiction story and was later changed for publication.

Outside of that I think the only problem was the vast amount of Paranormal entities assisting Blair. It feels as if the author could come up with a way for her to find the solution on her own so Blair had to be thrown a life line from time to time.

So, while not a great book it was a good book. l may continue the series when I have more time.

Give it a good chance

I love this book. It does start a little slow, but 1hr 20mins and it turns out fantastic. I can't wait to get into the next.
