Product Description

Product Description

When twenty something Jacqueline Swanson mysteriously goes missing in Las Vegas, supernatural crime investigator Quentin Draith is hired to investigate. Determined, Draith immerses himself in the darkest corners of the city’s underworld, unveiling a string secrets and bizarre deaths.

The deeper he digs, the more otherworldly his assignment gets. Assassins, human and otherwise, put a target on Draith’s head. An old foe ignites a storm of mad science. And a ravenous beast rampages through the city.

The clues point Draith to Sin City’s infamous “Bone Triangle,” a neighborhood marked for its dark happenings and disappearances. And when Draith finds that the daughter’s disappearance may be linked to an alien plot against the city, he goes all in to make a final high-stakes play to save the city he loves.

By JK TOP 50 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
The Bone Triangle is an area of Las Veags where the odd, the mad and the totally surreal appear and disappear against a setting of very weird science, magic and crime. If that doesn't sound complex enough then throw into the plot a beast with a huge appetite, time travel, a missing girl and a host of characters from assassins, magicians, aliens and others just too bizarre to categorise.

Despite the fantasy elements the plot itself is quite simple, with just a handful of key characters, and begins with a missing person investigation that opens up to introduce the star of the show, supernatural detective, Quentin Draith.

Draith is very much on a quest to find a missing girl and is helped on his way by his unique ability to discover artifacts/amulets through which he is able to open a type of portal and travel around through time and space but; his ability to move around secretly, alongside his ability to locate lost things, opens up a conspiracy which sees him hunted down and in fear for his life.

As the plot moves along the action scenes ramp up and Draith becomes embroiled in a final fight to save Vegas...and maybe the world!. There are no limits to the constantly shifting scenes of sci-fi/magic/teleportation/detection and general weirdness. Makes your head spin and the author deserves an award for bravery. There can't be one element of fantasy fiction that's been left unexplored.

What are the neagatives?. I read a lot of fantasy and the best of it, in my personal opinion, has a good dose of reality to anchor down the plot and offer the reader a platform in and out of the story. There's little reality here, the themes spin out too far and I struggled to relate to both plot and characters.

There are some decent ideas in this novel but it's somehat bewildering. I'm leaving 3* purely for originality and imagination.

Jacqueline Swanson vanishes in Vegas and Quentin Draith is the supernatural investigator brought in to find her. Jacqueline is not really missing, she is just bored and with the aid of a candy cane can become invisible, a skill she uses to steal shoes and to play tricks on tourists.

Whilst Quentin is looking for the missing girl he uncovers a number of strange deaths in the Bone Triangle, so called as all that remains of the victims are piles of bones. Together they go on a journey of odd artefacts imbued with powers such as sunglasses with the ability to open doors, a coin that can open rifts to other worlds and a bottle of searing light that works as a weapon. They meet with strange people in the desert, an arch enemy who doesn't age locked up in her Asylum, a firey slug creature and a man who rules the gutters. All this whilst trying to save Las Vegas from a beast that breaks trough rifts and eats people.

All in all a great fun romp, I enjoyed the characters and their personalities were developed well. They had both good and bad traits that made them entertaining to follow. Not that you could always tell the good guys. The artefacts were cool, and added a nice dimension to the story, as did using the nuclear testing grounds and Area 51 as locations for the story as well as Vegas itself.

The writing was flowing and articulate and the story kept you reading. The plot developed at a good pace, though I didn't see much point in the quickly resolved missing person case apart from to get Jacqueline into the story with the candy cane. However that aside the story worked well.

I enjoyed a romp through alternate realities with some very strange people and would like to see further adventures of Quentin Draith in future.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Beast in Vegas 25 May 2013
Format:Paperback|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I haven't read the first book in this series but enough back story was given to make this book a good read without worrying too much about what had gone before.
We meet Quentin Draith, a man without much of a memory, living in a huge house with little furniture and no means of paying for its upkeep, when he is first attacked by a cat witch and then nearly burned out of house and home by Ezzie, a huge, talking slug-like entity who scorches through his cellar and living space on her way to her very hot home. To make any sort of living he finds people, aided by magical artefacts, and at the start of this story he is asked by her mother to find Jacqueline, a bored rich girl who has vanished in Vegas. Finding her is fairly easy, but Quentin, Jacqueline, and a cop called McKessop are soon in the middle of mayhem caused by a Beast from another world who is eating his way through the citizens of The Triangle, an unsavoury district not that far from The Strip, and must be stopped at all costs.
I found the characters on the whole endearing. Quentin is a not completely gung-ho hero, but aided by Jacqueline's invisibility artefact he is set to save Vegas and quite possibly the world from the Beast using rips, entrances to other universes that came as a result of the experiments in the desert during and after WW2. To beat the Beast means tracking it to its lair with the help or hindrance of other Rogue magicians like himself or the Lords of the Domains, not to mention the mad psychiatrist Dr Meng, with whom Quentin has unhappy history.
An enjoyable read that feels pretty plausible in the reading. Quentin, Jacqueline and McKessop are left with plenty to do in future stories. I'll look forward to them.
