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.

Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
This is the second in the Unspeakable Things series and it's a more rewarding and enjoyable read than the first, Technomancer (Unspeakable Things: Book One), which was a little cluttered and confused in places. The Bone Triangle builds on the urban fantasy world established first time out, explores rather more of the lead character and his adopted weird abilities, and contains a satisfying tale while neatly opening up news can o' worms for future instalments.

The place is Las Vegas, the world is similar to this one, the time is around now - but all those nuclear experiments in the Nevada deserts ripped holes in the universe. Bad things are slithering and growling through the gaps, and weird artefacts have been created which bestow on the bearer a variety of peculiar talents. Like invisibility, good luck, teleportation, rapid healing - but there's always a price to pay if you choose to use them.
In the midst of all this, Quentin Draith is trying to come to terms with his lack of memory, his lack of money (although he has been given a mansion by a casino gangland supremo), his newfound artefacts... and the fact that a living lump of lava just materialised in his basement and is burning through the carpet.
BV Larson writes entertaining and swiftly-paced prose. He's very at home in Las Vegas environs and does a great job of evoking the bleached, bone-dry desert and sleazy atmosphere of the Strip.

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.
