Publisher's Summary

If you can't stand the heat...

When New York City unveils a program to roast supernaturals, I wonder if I should be sweating.

The bloodthirsty Arnaud thinks so, and he's insisting that our survival depends on a wizard-vampire alliance. Never mind his history of wanting me dead. Or undead.

Meanwhile, the mayor wants me on his team - an offer that's only slightly less unnerving given our recent clash. So who's really behind the purge? City Hall? The werewolves? Or is it the brainchild of the fae, whose newest advisor to the mayor slipped from my bed and life four months ago?

I'm getting the cold feeling someone's trying to manipulate the program, and me, to set off a larger war, one that could explode through the city.

One thing's for sure. If I don't get my head straight and my magic on, it's going to be a hell of a summer.

    "Don't miss!"

    action-adventure, mage, magic, shifters, werewolves, faerie, snarky, law-enforcement, NYC

    Non-stop action in NYC with a deviously twisty plot characterized by a really snarky good guy with a lot of personal problems. Get into the world of NYC politics where the dopey mayor is married to a werewolf and plans a law enforcement campaign to eliminate all of the scary non humans and get a ton of publicity in hopes of winning the next election. What a mess! There are several subplots, surprising twists, and it all adds up to an excellent read!
    J.P.Cronin is fantastic as Croft!

    The ending. The job offer was my favorite.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Absolutely. The narrator is that good and the writing flowed so the narrator could really bring the story to life.

    Story
    "I rarely give 5 stars but Mr. Magnarella surprised"

    The early third part of this book seems to be roughly pieced together to the middle of the what seemed to be mediocre story but Mr. Magnarella really brought this very enjoyable and partially new story to an old tale. Having some experience with these types of tales and am very rarely shocked by a writer in this genre and the latest to do this is definitely this writer along with James Patrick Cronin which reads this type of stories with great skill and wonderful timing. I have high hopes but not sure just yet if I am ready to bring Mr. Brad Magnarella into the Fold of my Favorite writers in the genre which most would agree that Jim Butcher sits at or near the top (if there is such a thing) a while in his great works which we all wait patiently for Peace Talks. I also truly enjoy Benedict Jacka with his British Time twisting Mage which is pumping out really cleanly written stories very timely.
    I truly enjoy the origins of Prof Croft and hopes he continues to write and surprise me with every new tome.
    I have high hopes for the new fellow on the block. There seem to be new stories in the genre on a bit of a rise by quantity and I like the way Brad Magnarella weaved his Webb on this ride. Very good so far.
    keep'em coming Mr. Magnarella.

    Story
    "redemption in the end"

    I almost gave up Prof Croft this time. His infuriating obstinance, inability to see the obvious, and immaturity lasting so far into the third book reduced him to a most unlikable protagonist. However, once he finally sees the truth, acknowledges his mistakes, and gains the wisdom to accept what he can't change, he shows potential. the elimination of prior adversaries frees him to tackle bigger things in future novels... I hope his apparent growth and maturation proves to be lasting... a backside in the future would be very disappointing

    "WOW, AWESOME. EXCITING ALL THE WAY."

    Most enjoyable. Had me glued to the book until the end. Brad Magnarella is a good writer. James Patrick Cronin narrated/performed wonderfully. I like the protagonist. He tries very hard to help and have to deal with obstacles and nasty people around him. The supernatural are also dangerous and it is difficult to trust anybody. A very very good plot and the ending was fantastic. I am looking forward to the next book in the series where Prof Croft has to find the death Mage who is the killer of his mother.

    "Background noise"

    The audio sounds like it was recorded in someone's bedroom. If that was fixed it would be a good book.
