Price: £2.73

4.0 out of 5 stars ... lot and although bits of the book did feel like an extended training montage, 5 Jun. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I've been enjoying this series a lot and although bits of the book did feel like an extended training montage ... in fact they *were* an extended training montage, the Big Reveals were nicely handled. Ivy's definitely leveled up .. which makes me wonder who is going to have to be her next foe?

It's not big and it's not clever but it is pretty damn funny. If you're a fan of the Kadrey Sandman-Slim style, then this will make you very happy.

This is a really good example of the problems with not having an editor for the kindle-editions : because there's actually a pretty decent book and writer struggling to get out. It got noticeably less rough around the edges as it went on, but hoo boy that whole first chapter needed to be just cut completely - if a friend of mine hadn't recommended it to me, might not have made it past that, which would have been a shame because it did get considerably better.

This review is from: Admiral (Kindle Edition)
That was a cracking read.
The alien planet makes no and I mean NO sense biologically but gives good monster and I don't think you're supposed to think too deeply about it - all the fun is in the 'how will they get of this mess' and it was a lot of fun.
I'd be interested to see if the human societies that were being very broad brush described would hold up for future novels and I'd definitely read more work by Danker.

Intriguing and novel take (if such a thing is possible) in the urban fantasy genre - will read the next in the series

A bitter but utterly appropriate ending for a great series.

5.0 out of 5 stars It's proper philosophy done with a proper love of genre, 7 April 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It's proper philosophy done with a proper love of genre. It's absolutely not dumbed down - the arguments around the ultimate weakness of compatibilism are really well done.

Rarely give five star reviews for fiction.
Part of me was disappointed that it was only a novella because I was enjoying it so much but in the end the plot probably wouldn't have taken a full novel length treatment. Beautifully written, a real treat. McGuire loves pulling apart the cliches of fantasy and examining the 'real world' implications.
