This review is from: Hell's Horizon (The City Trilogy) (Paperback)
This is the second book in the re-released "The City Trilogy" which was originally released a while ago and apparently flopped. I never read the original series but unless there have been huge changes then I really can't see why it failed.
This book is a brilliant melding of crime drama and supernatural thriller, what I mean is it has all the grit of a detective novel but it also has slightly mystical/strange things to help poke the plot along and keep it interesting. The protoganist has a few nice revelations to go through which make this book even more interesting than a simple detective book. Overall I'd say if you like "The Dresden Files" then this is something like that except if the ratio of magic-realism is 50:50 in Dresden Files then it's 20:80 here, so it's a lot more believable and it in no way suffers for that.
Excellent read. Nice length on it too.
