Margo Lerwill nests in a windowless cubicle in a dark government hive, furtively scribbling out plans for the destruction of civilization disguised as harmless urban fantasy. Epic fantasy alternate weekends in months containing the letter 'r'. She enjoys Caravaggio paintings, South Park humor, and movies where the monsters stay dead at the end.

Her work has previously appeared in Leading Edge, Deep Magic, and numerous local periodicals no one has ever heard of. It is rumored she was one of the writers in attendance at Viable Paradise VII.

City of Dis is the direct sequel to Dis (An Urban Midgard Short Story). It picks up something like 40 minutes after the end of Dis. If you haven't read Dis, check it out. Not only is a good story, but City of Dis will make more sense if you read it first. If you have read Dis, the big question you're probably wondering is whether City of Dis is really better than the original. Yes. Yes it is.

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.

Let me preface this review by stating that I love urban fantasy but I have grown tired of the same old story being retold with the same old plot and recycled characters. Dis, the first short story in the series, and City of Dis are a breath of fresh air. Not only does the story and writing rank right up there with urban fantasy favorites like Jim Butcher and Charles De Lint but the plot and characters are unique. Colbie, the main character, is wonderfully human, despite being not quite human anymore. She has her faults but they do not detract from her personality or make it hard to read about her. After reading Dis I was anxiously awaiting the next installment and I am not disappointed. City of Dis is even better that Dis and I did not know that was possible. The new characters that were added really rounded out the story and provided more information about the world that Margo is building. I am so intrigued about the other characters and their stories. There was a point in the story that I laughed so hard I almost fell out of my chair, which was rather embarasing since I was reading the story at my desk while I was on break. Thank you Margo for all the hard work and I can hardly wait to find out what happens next!

This story picks up where "Dis" left off (but also can stand alone).

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.
