5.0 The Devil You Know...
This is a reread for me, huge fan of the Castor novels so the next little while will be loads of fun while I revisit that world. They are brilliant. So this is less a review and more a "read them - read them all!"

3.0 Review: Mike Carey - Felix Castor 01 - The Devil you know
Book is OK. Not brilliant, not as fun as the Dresden Files, but OK. Dark, dry, cynical humor. Overuse of metaphors, every other sentence. The 'exorcise with music' is straight from Garth Nix's books. A lot of "Pratchetisms", sometimes almost outright quotes without a nod to the source. That irks me....
