Just as good as the first one 21 Dec 2009
By Sage Jackson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
I am a fan of the series, so when the book came out I purchased it relatively quickly, and was quite happy with it. If you are familiar with this series, you know it's a light but enjoyable romp and this book follows the trend. Many times in series the plot becomes soap opera-ish or the characters loose their feel, and this doesn't happen here. The main characters still feel like themselves and the secondary characters have unique personalities and contributed to the overall storyline. There's a good bit of Eli and Victor in Unleashed, which I was happy about because I enjoy those two.

What's extra great is that the ending was actually a surprise! It's very difficult, especially nowadays to create an ending the reader didn't see coming, but in Unleashed I was unable to predict exactly what would happen.

Sorry about the lack of details, but essentially, if you've enjoyed this series so far you'll appreciate this fascinating sequel that keeps up with Levitt's unique and exciting world.

poignant yet often amusing urban fantasy 29 Nov 2009
By Harriet Klausner - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
There is a magic world that the Ordinaries know nothing about even its existence. To keep it that way, certain magical practitioners serve as cops to insure no one deviates from the righteous path. They also cover up when something magical happens so that s mortals do not learn of their existence. One enforcer with medium level strength is Mason, who has an Ifrit Louie, a faithful familiar shaped like a dog.

Mason tries to help some San Francisco homeless practitioners who are gradually losing their humanity and turning into beings from the myths and legend. They accidentally create an anti-Ifrit who killed people. At first Mason thought the anti-Ifrit murdered ordinaries, but he revised his theory. He now thinks a Wendigo came out of the energy field that the anti-Ifrit came out of and is the killer. The pair finally gets it right when they figure out what the real killers are. Mason, Louie, their mentor Eli and Chief Enforcer Victor know it will take team work and a miracle to destroy the killer
.

Magic, mayhem and mystery make up Unleashed, a poignant yet often amusing urban fantasy that is filled with intrigue and a sense of wonder. Mason will do anything for his Louie and likewise the Ifrit canine will sacrifice himself for his partner; as man's best friend is his dog. The danger begins due to out of control practitioners losing their sense of reality and allowing a pseudo Ifrit, a Wendigo and a killer out of the energy pool leading to a wonderful original urban fantasy whodunit.

"Unleashed" will clamp down and hold you in its bite 22 Dec 2009
By Andy Rector - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
With this latest addition to the "Dog Days" series, I am officially a fan. "Unleashed" is my favorite so far. Levitt did a great job of building suspense, creating vivid images of the paranormal, and keeping the reader guessing.

The second book in the series, "New Tricks", was fine, but did not grab me as much as the first book, "Dog Days." "Unleashed" just seems more put together as a story and is definitely more creepy. I wish I could comment in more detail, but I don't want to give anything away--however I was glad to see some characters from earlier in the series back and I am interested in seeing what Levitt does with them in future editions.

There is one issue in this novel that the author addresses, but ultimatley leaves unanswered. I suspect it will be part of the next book, and I am looking forward to seeing how it is handled. I can say I was pleased how this story ended.

If you are a fan of Butcher's "Harry Dresden" or Brigg's "Mercy Thompson" series, you will probably enjoy Levitt's stories.

Book with a bite. 3 Jan 2010
By Sassy girl - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
I just finished reading "Unleashed", the third book in the series.
John Levitt ,has done it again.
He has pulled me into the story line but good.
I do believe this book was even better than the first two,in this series.
The characters have been more developed.
The strengths and weaknesses of each character, make this book worth reading.
Mason with his magical powers, and his ifrit, Lou, take us on a wild ride this time.
Trying to find out who is the shape shifter, keeps the group on the run.
Who do you trust? Who do you go to for help?
Your best friend might turn out to be a bad"guy", or maybe not.
Excellent reading. I am now a John Levitt fan.
I look forward to the next installment.

Mason is in the thick of things..... again! 3 Jan 2010
By 4fabfelines - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Mason has got trouble. The fake Ifrit that was let loose in New Tricks from the shadey practicioner is causing alot of problems. People are getting killed and torn apart in the city.
Mason goes to his street friends to get information and finds a vortex of power that had not gone away after the last magic confrontation.
Mason meets a psychic named Morgan, she does a reading for him.. prompted by her parents. She sees a danger in the woods and warns Mason. Of course Mason goes to the woods and finds what is waiting for him. He and Louie discover another menace is in town. It is much worse than they originally thought.
