Because I'm a completist
Gunmetal Magic - Ilona Andrews

Drat, barely a vampire cameo. Will need another book. No matter.

 

I'm not as invested in Andrea, much less in her hit-me/kiss-me relationship with Raphael, but I had fun. It's inevitable with any of Andrews' books. Fast pace, mythology tie ins, and badass characters all around are always good. And I'm closer in filling in the bits of Kate Daniel's world.

To say that Beau Clayton was a good old Southern Boy would be an understatement. The man kept a can of green boiled peanuts on his desk, for crying out loud. For some reason, it was half-filled with bullet casings.

 

I think I can see where this one is going...

 

“May I ask why you have bullet casings in that can, Sheriff?”
“Every time someone shoots at me, I put the casings into the can,” he said.

 

Yeap, lol. Beau Clayton is likely my most favorite normal badass of all badasses. The guy is surrounded by monsters and magic power-houses, and he still ends up being the solution for averting a war by sheer aplomb alone later.

"I had once read a book that said a traveler should always have one and it made a lot of sense."

I call body-jumper

 

On an extra note, that list of artifacts had a nice little mention of Kush, which sent me on a lovely wiki-walk, and guess what? Mythic (or religious, or historic, you know how hazy those lines get) Kush was Nimrod's dad.

“Did those nice church ladies come by again?”
He nodded. “I asked them if a man died and then the woman remarried, and the three of them met in heaven, would it be a sin for them to have a threesome, since they were all married in God’s eyes. And then they decided they were late to be somewhere else.”
A little bit of knowledge was a very dangerous thing.

 

LMAO! I'll have to remember that one. I'm reading this one on the hope vampires will makes an appearance for my Bingo Square, but even if they don't, this writing team never disappoints.
