Fix is approached by grieving parents, seeking the ghost of their dead daughter who has been snatched by another exorcist. And thus begins another satisfying thrash through London as Fix deals with (or runs away from) ghosts, demons, necromancers, paranoid zombies, were creatures, religious fanatics and the police, most of whom seem to have it in for him one way or another. You'll guess some of the well worn twists easily enough but it doesn't really matter - most of the entertainment is in watching Fix trying to untangle the web and extricate himself from his various troubles.
This one is a step up.
A biggish step up.
It is starting to look as if Mike Carey might be the new Robert Faulcon.
I read his Nighthunter series every few years, when I want some light (i.e. dark) entertainment of the pulp horror variety.
I came to Felix Castor via The Girl With All The Gifts which is full-on ace.
Looking forward to more Felix now.
Carey builds on his "universe" and it continues to be credible and compelling. I like the characters and this time out of the gate I think they're even better than the debut Castor novel; which is itself pretty damn decent. This one delivers even more and doesn't have a sour note, except for maybe just how brave and competent Castor is. How did he become so accidentally kick ass? Maybe the next book will tell.
I recommend without reservation.
As far as the story goes, I'm only a quarter through but it is hard to put it down. Fix is such a cheeky character who you end up liking so much and rooting for! Thank you Mike Carly.
Curiously, I picked up on the 'hero' being from Liverpool before it was described. I'm from the same place ,but a previous generation of escapee. I think it was the speech patterns, but I'm still trying to figure that out.
