Narcissist villain creates chaos with hypnotic magic
Lincoln, Fox and the Bad Dog - D. Roland Hess

This is urban fantasy at its best and most digital to date. The plot unfolds smoothly—it’s not predictable, but it doesn’t stretch the constraints of its trope either.

 

The hero is a damaged man discovering himself again as he fights for his life. He brings along a scarred woman and an alien It’s a strange trip and when it ends it isn’t quite over.

Along the way you’ll meet a villain that thrives on spewing chaos out into the world. He’s a megalomaniac of grand proportions. I find parallels in current political trends. But since it’s too early to see how those trends will play out, this book offers an alternate ride.

 

Bravo.
