Book Description

23 July 2009 Felix Castor (Book 3)

Before he died, Castor's fellow exorcist John Gittings made several calls asking for help and if Castor had answered them, John might still be alive. So when a smooth-talking lawyer comes out of nowhere to claim the remains, Castor owes it to John's unhappy ghost and even more unhappy widow to help out.

If only life were that simple. A brutal murder in King's Cross bears all the hallmarks of an American serial killer supposedly forty years dead, and it takes more good sense than Castor possesses not to get involved. He's also fighting a legal battle over the body - if not the soul - of his possessed friend, Rafi, and can't shake the feeling that his three problems are related.

With the help of the succubus Juliet, paranoid zombie data-fence Nicky Heath and a little judicious digging, Castor just might have a chance of fitting the pieces together before someone drops him down a lift shaft or rips his throat out. Or not. . .

5.0 out of 5 stars Hold Onto Your Hats (and other bits) 13 Aug 2008
By M. J. Saxton VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is the best of Mike Carey's Felix Castor novels to date. The hero hasn't changed much from when we first met him in "The Devil You Know", but is becoming a more refined character in every novel.
He is a hero in the sense that the reader wants him to win through and will turn a blind eye to his faults for the sake of the greater good.

The character of Juliet now has much more depth. The writer has taken her on a much more detailed journey over the past two novels. This book is better for having more of her in it and she makes a great action heroine who propels most of the big set pieces.

Reading this is like seeing the outline of a movie, it taps into the awareness of modern cinema, probably because of Casey's understanding of writing for that medium. It's the paper equivalent of an action movie.

The story hauls you along from one point of action to another. Description is vivid, characters revealing and easy to visualise. There is an emotional depth in the writing as well that engages the reader on an empathic level even though we can have no experience of such a story.

Can't wait for the next one!

5.0 out of 5 stars just fantastic 28 Mar 2010
This is book three in the Felix Castor series and I freaking love these books! Damn they just keep getting better and better. I listened to the audio book edition brilliantly narrated by Michael Kramer. The thing is that the narrator of the audio books is so good, that I'm kinda hooked on them. The voice he does for Juliet is just great! This one was delayed for a while but it was well worth the wait. I love the Dresden Files by Jim Butcher but these books are seriously testing my loyalty.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic 18 Sep 2007
Not unputdownable but pretty damn near.

Familiar territory trodden in North London - East Finchley, Mile End, Stoke Newington - lovely sense of place - I wonder where he based Mount Grace Cemetary on ?
Familiar characters take a look in but we get to know more about Juliet who has a very hard time, and are introduced to drum notation.
It still reads like a cross between Chandler and Dr Taverner (from the novels of Dion Fortune) - and this feels like his best in this series yet.
It follows firmly in the footsteps of Vicious Circle and the Devil You Know.
I wonder if in future tales the ground will move to Liverpool ? More familiar for the author - yet not as occult a city (to my mind) as London is.

Terrific tale , set in London - and the rest of the series only get better! Felix castor is the protagonist - an exorcist with a conscience . Lots of demons, werewolves, ghosts, and layers of mystery . An amazing series!

5.0 out of 5 stars Wicked fun ! 9 Nov 2013
By Nik
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Felix Castor is the 'Eddie Shoestring' of exorcists; mishap-prone, out of cash and down on his luck. Taking on an apparently simple job, he stumbles into a tangle of dire complications...

I've now read #1~~3 in quick succession, enjoyed them immensely, but must wait until month's end before ordering #4~5.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best so far 26 Aug 2013
By jedmon
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The best Felix Castor so far. He goes deep down in his last reserves here, scraping along the bottom and barely coming out the other side. And Juliet is given the room she needs as a character. Liked this one a lot.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic series 21 Jun 2013

Felix Castor is clearly from the same school of hard knocks as John Constantine. But he's a little better at keeping his friends alive. I love this series and long for more.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another great book 28 April 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I'm very impressed by this series. I didn't particularly like Castor in the first book, but the story was gripping, the concept was novel, and the writing superb - but he has grown on me. So have the other characters, and I'm now waiting for the next book with anticipation.

Felix Castor reminds me of Harry Dresden, the main character in the tv series The Dresden Files. If you liked the Dresden Files then I am sure you will love Felix.
