This wasn't a bad book at all. I like the author's writing style, and I love the diversity of the cast of characters. Had it not been for a few things, I'd have likely rated this a 3 or a 3.5 star read. 1. I mentioned this in an earlier update, but I feel somewhat like I was dropped in the middle ...

I read this one for Diverse Voices. It would also work for Supernatural, Ghost & The Dead Will Walk (there's a necromancer reanimating corpses).

I wasn't exactly planning to read this one. Last year, I read the sequel, which I loved. And didn't feel like there was back-fill I needed from the first volume. I thought I'd just continue on from the second book. I've learned all the wrong things from Dresden books. Recently, I started Battle ...

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...

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...

So you guys know that I almost never do that, but if I buy the book because of the review I ended up completely agreeing with, it is not like I can add anything to it. I bought it because fellow DA reviewer Jia reviewed the book and I can cosign under her review easily. Diverse cast, New York ci...
