A New Novel of Alternate History/Fantasy Adventure by the Author of the Hit Novel, Monster Hunter International. AN ORIGINAL TRADE PAPERBACK.A Hard-Boiled Private Eye Caught Between Opposing Forces in a Secret War Waged by Magic.              Jake Sullivan is a war hero, a private eye—and an ex-con. He’s free because he has a magical talent, being able to alter the force of gravity in himself and objects in his vicinity, and the Bureau of Investigation calls on him when they need his help in apprehending criminals with their own magical talents. But the last operation he was sent along to help with went completely wrong, and Delilah Jones, the woman the G-men were after, who just happened to be an old friend of Jake’s in happier times, had a lot of magical muscle with her, too much muscle for the cops to handle, even with Jake’s help.              It got worse. Jake found out that the Feds had lied to him about Delilah being a murderer as well as a bank robber, and they had lied about this being his last job for them—he was too valuable for them to let him go. And things were even worse than Jake imagined. There was a secret war being waged by opposing forces of magic-users, and Jake had no idea that he had just attracted the attention of one side, whose ruthless leaders were of the opinion that Jake was far too dangerous to be permitted to live . . .

That said, the development of the story and the setting up of the world is on the heavy, extensive side especially in the be...

Fantastic pulp noir, steampunk, alt-history, urban fantasy! I am not sure I would have been able to read this all the way through because it did seem a dull and more details where givem about the guns then most of the main characters. Bronson Pinchot, the narrator is does a superb job, which kept my...

This review is also available on my blog, Stumptown Books.Don't judge a book by its cover is the aphorism to remember here. For weeks I thought this novel was a graphic novel based solely upon the cover art, and the fact that there was no Kindle edition to buy cinched the opinion for me. Then the ...

This alt-history magic noir series is a great mind-bender. I love Larry Correia's no-holds-barred action writing. His world building in this is fantastic and the attention to detail is superb.
