Top Customer Reviews
Colbie heads into the "T," the heart of gangland where she faces mortal and supernatural opposition in her quest to recover her magic knife. I can't go into too many details about the coolest parts of the story because it would spoil the surprises.
But I can say this time around she calls on her estranged ex-husband for help, and he gives her almost as much trouble as her opponents. You've got two people who really must've hurt each other, because the tension, the barbs, are just under the surface every moment, threatening to break out between them. It's kind of sad, because I felt myself wanting to see them be the friends Colbie lets herself think they are.
Like Dis, City of Dis hints at far more depth to the world and characters than a short story can express. So we'll just have to wait for the Norn Convergence to get the novel version.
Snappily written though long enough to be considered a "novelette", "City of Dis" tantalizes with hints about what's forthcoming in further Urban Midguard books. Fans of urban fantasy will enjoy the rich worldbuilding and Norse-based mythology as Colbie discovers first-hand what happens when magic meets gang territory.
If you like urban fantasy, try this.
