FIRST IN A BRAND NEW URBAN FANTASY SERIES “Because I’m an inbetweener—and the only one anyone knows of at that—the dead turn to me when something is askew between them and the living. Usually, it’s something mundane like a suicide gone wrong or someone revived that shouldn’ta been.”   Carlos Delacruz is one of the New York Council of the Dead’s most unusual agents—an inbetweener, partially resurrected from a death he barely recalls suffering, after a life that’s missing from his memory. He thinks he is one of a kind—until he encounters other entities walking the fine line between life and death.     One inbetweener is a sorcerer. He’s summoned a horde of implike ngks capable of eliminating spirits, and they’re spreading through the city like a plague. They’ve already taken out some of NYCOD’s finest, leaving Carlos desperate to stop their master before he opens up the entrada to the Underworld—which would destroy the balance between the living and the dead.   But in uncovering this man’s identity, Carlos confronts the truth of his own life—and death.…

3.0 Half-Resurrection Blues, by Daniel José Older
There aren’t a lot of job opportunities out there for a man who’s half dead. On top of it, our protagonist doesn’t remember who he was before he died. He uses the name Carlos Delacruz because that’s what the ghost and voudon practitioner who helped him get back on his feet named him. Now, Carlos wor...

1.0 Half-Resurrection Blues: A Bone Street Rumba Novel
This could have been really interesting, and I was interested in the world/characters, but the massive vein of creepy around women in this book got to me and and I failed out.

2.5 Half-Resurrection Blues ( Daniel José Older)
2.5 starsI immediately bought this book (Kobo had 50% discount code I could use) without reading any early reviews because I am a sucker for urban fantasy with male protagonist. I always try to find a new series I can follow. So I was intrigued -- and the a couple of friends gave this 4-stars rating...
