Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
"The Bone Triangle" is the second in B.V Larson's "Unspeakable Things" series, about a P.I. named Quentin Draith who inhabits a Las Vegas filled with semi-magical, indestructible "artifacts" that confer various powers and abilities to their possessors. Draith is a man without a past, still suffering from the complete amnesia that he discovered upon waking in the Sunset Sanitarium after a near-fatal auto accident in "Technomancer", the first book in the series.

This time around, Draith knows a little more, but still nothing about his past. He is down on his luck, despite possessing an unusually large number of modestly powerful artifacts (one let him force any lock he wants, another makes him heal very fast, a third makes him immune to the power of others' artifacts etc.) and a mansion obtained in the first book, but now emptied of most furniture and art.

The eponymous "Bone Triangle" is a seedy area just off the strip where a number of murders have recently taken place, with the killer leaving behind piles of the bones of his victims. Up drives a pretty blonde in a red Mercedes who offers Draith a large sum of money to find and return her daughter, and off we go, in another genre mashup of crime noir and fantasy. Several of the characters from the first novel return, and we learn a little bit more about each of them and their relationship to Draith. Finally the murderer is revealed and it is up to Draith to fix everything.

I liked Technomancer well enough, but I liked The Bone Triangle even more. Draith is a likable protagonist, perhaps even a bit too likable with too much conscience for a guy in his line of work.

Format: Paperback
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. He's created a raft of interesting characters for this series - the archetypal corrupt cop who's actually keeping a lid on all the weird schtick that's going on in town; the sewer-dwelling ganglord; various rogues (like Draith) who have an artefact or two and get into all kinds of scrapes.

As part of my participation in the Amazon Vines program, I received an advance copy for review.

I really enjoyed the first book and was looking forward to reading this. The book was good, but it was a bit of a slow start for me. The first third of the book past before I felt that the adventure and the intrigue really got going. If they allowed half stars, I'd have given it 3 and a half.

Here's what I liked - The action was solid and Draith's characterization was good. MeKeeson's character grew in the story and added some needed depth.

Here's what didn't click for me - I know with the noir style mystery there needs to be a slow reveal, but I felt there could have been more down with the Mercury portion of the story arc. Actually, there was so much in the novel that felt underdeveloped. Between that, the Beast, Gutter Jim there really wasn't much time left for the female romance. Jacqueline's part was so weak and underdeveloped that it couldn't hold my interest and she was put on the back burner for a large chunk of the story.

Overall, this was still an entertaining read, but I am hoping book three will be closer to book one than it is to book two.

This is the second book involving the mysterious Quentin Draith and it really is a fun read. Quentin is one of several individuals who live in modern day Las Vegas who has powers via magic objects. These objects give him and others powers to do things like become invisible or to open doors. As this is the second book in the series, Quentin still doesn't have all of his memories back. He's still trying to figure out just who he is exactly. Anyone starting here will miss out on some key details in my option. The author does an ok job of trying to catch the reader back up but it would be a tough road to figure out what exactly is happening. Quentin is down on his luck after the exploits from the last novel. He's in danger of losing his house and someone is trying to kill him (again). He's tasked to find the daughter of a rich woman and while trying to track the daughter down, he stumbles on more mysteries from the other side. I'll stop here and just say that the book is worth the read. It definitely has a solid mix of action and suspense. And Quentin is an interesting character to follow and like. He's got his morals and doesn't remember all of his past and what he might have done. And the supporting cast of characters are interesting. Overall, it's a very fun read and I can't wait to read the next book in the series.
