Review

Rating: 6

This urban fantasy is set in my neck of the woods, though the visuals that the author conjures up with his description of the town of Hammer Bay remind me, for some reason, more of Anacortes than any place on the Olympic Peninsula. This story is part detective story and partly dark fantasy in the same vein as Mike Carey’s Felix Castor novels. I’m looking forward to the sequel.
