Sequel to Unshapely Things.
I eagerly awaited this sequel and I have to say I wasn't disappointed. As a fan of both Jim Butcher's Harry Dresden and Simon Green's John Taylor I have found another fun magical/paranormal hero to root for.
Connor is still coming to terms with the damage that had crippled his ability to work magic but is actually becoming much more of a hero without his powerful druidic magic than he was with them. The story takes you from the heart of the Guildhouse to a troll's lair (where else but under a bridge) and everywhere as Connor helps his homicide detective friend Murdock investigate the death of a young man as the rest of Boston focuses on the murder of a high profile Elvish Ambassador.
There's more fun and snark between Connor and Meryl as well as the standard craziness that always seems to ensue when Stinkwort AKA Joe is around.
I picked this book up last night and read pretty much straight through and I hope the author is already writing the next one and that this series is as succesful as The Dresden Files or Tales from the Nightside because I'm hooked.
Really enjoy this series. There is another coming soon.I am definetly buying it.
Connor Grey is on the move again in a mystery of huge ramifications.
A human teen gang member turns up dead in a part of the Weird known as the Tangle, a couple of blocks over a elf diplomat is murdered also..
How are they related and why? Connor and his flit sidekick Joe, get called in to investegate and the clues lead them into more trouble than they can imagine.
Old friends and enemies show their true colours in the second installment of Connor Greys' Weird world.
Pretty darn good. I'm more into urban romance but this was a good diversion.
