Dragon Justice is the fourth book in Laura Anne Gilman's Paranormal Scene Investigations Series, after Hard Magic, Pack of Lies, and Tricks of the Trade. She's been building this urban fantasy version of New York City and its world for quite a while, ever since the first book in her Retrievers series, Staying Dead. And what a world it is! If you love urban fantasy I dare to to read the words "Cosa Nostradamus" without your imagination opening up into a smile of wonder. Concept and pun in one single phrase.

Dragon Justice, being the fourth book in the PSI series, builds on everything that came before. (See my review of Tricks of the Trade for details about prior events in the series)

It helps a LOT to have read the other books in the series. That's no hardship. This series, both these series, are awesome. But it makes it damn difficult to write a review as though this book stands alone.

Dragon Justice has the feeling of a middle book in the story arc. Each individual book in the Paranormal Scene Investigations Series uses a police-procedural-type framework -- the PUPIs are investigators, after all. So there is a crime that needs to be investigated. But that's not the biggest part of this particular story.

The big things are the forces moving in the background. Ian Stosser and Ben Venec are the two "Big Dogs" at PUPI, and they go off in different directions. Ian gives everyone a vacation so he can take care of some family business. Alone.

Ben goes to Philadelphia to work on a private security contract at a small museum. Ben turns out to be much smarter than Ian. He invites Bonnie Torres, one of the PUPs, to come to Philly.

This is one of those cases where I there series has degenerated quickly from what had been a promising start. This book was a white-hot, convoluted mess of a story. I have a pet peeve about the growing trend for authors to do lots of perspective shifts rather than following the primary character, and this was really, really bad in that respect. They follow Bonnie for a while in 1st person, then bounce around between other random characters (at least 4 of them) for short periods of time in 3rd person, bounce back to Bonnie, then back out again. There were three or four plot-lines going on, any of which could have or SHOULD have had an entire book, and all of them were handled badly and none of them really reached a satisfactory completion. The author had major events happen that wound up being rushed through. She had events in this book dependent on events in her Retriever series so if you haven't read that, you're kind of up the creek. Characters show up and leave without any real explanation of why they were there. There were a couple of dragon-related scenes that were included that made absolutely no sense in the great scheme of things, even by the end. The one plot-line that the author did actually kind-of tie up was only achieved by a surge of magic-babble, where Gilman came up with a complex addition to the magic-system of her world that was rather arbitrary and seemed thrown in because she couldn't figure our a real way for the heroes to solve the case. And speaking of arbitrary, it would be remiss of me to fail to discuss the incredibly forced main romance for our heroine. Gilman painted the heroine as a bisexual, independent woman.Read more ›

Review courtesy of All Things Urban Fantasy:

DRAGON JUSTICE is a book that belongs to many genres while simultaneously playing with the boundaries and conventions of all of them. Urban fantasy, but with a strong procedural flavor. Book four in a series, but with events that affect both the standalone mystery of DRAGON JUSTICE and the greater world in which the PUPs operate. A well structured, standalone mystery, but with"clues" commingled with background noise and longer arc story lines. The common thread between all these elements is Gilman's seemingly endless creativity.

As much admiration as I have for Gilman's world building and narrative style, I can't emphasize enough how her characters always manage to sneak into my heart. Just as The Retrievers series seduced me with Wren, P.B., and Sergei, so too have Bonnie and the PUPs managed to charm me. Gilman doesn't write easy, two dimensional relationships, which often means it takes longer for me to get a handle on group dynamics and get attached. The flip side of this coin, however, is that her characters have a core of realism that holds up well to scrutiny. While I was interested in Bonnie in HARD MAGIC, it was not until PACK OF LIES that I was ready to give up my attachment to Wren and invest myself in this new series. DRAGON JUSTICE is the peak of my love for Bonnie and her PUPs, to the point where I hope this isn't our last chance to read along with their adventures. Though the narrative thread became a little frayed in the last few chapters (with a few events being explained in hindsight and some rather flat resolutions), to be honest, even these shortcomings lend support to the realistic feel of the book. Life is not always neat, even when it has a happy ending.
