Book Description

"Shotgun" tells the story of Roger Brooks, a mild-mannered family man sucked into a hidden subculture of magic and fairy creatures when he discovers the world's most powerful magic in his silverware drawer. Whisked away to a city of sorcery and intrigue, Roger's faced with unraveling the mystery behind a series of attacks that could only be perpetrated by an inside agent. Can Roger track down the traitor, or are his new duties as the world's greatest champion too much for any human to bare?

Meanwhile, in Detroit, Talora awakens on a park bench with no memory and no clue if the antlers growing out of her forehead are supposed to be there. Taken under the wing of the mysterious Witch, Talora is introduced to the darker side of the magical world as she searches out clues to her missing past while working for a shadowy cabal of demons intent on ruling the planet.

When our two heroes' paths finally cross and the Witch's villainous plan explodes around them, they'll have to learn to work together–or die trying.

Subversive, unique, and hilarious, "Shotgun" is the kick in the pants the urban fantasy genre desperately deserves.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great debut with a funny and fast-paced urban fantasy January 9, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
With a Douglas Adam's flare for quirky humor, Scott Colby throws the reader into the world behind our world where salvation lies in the hands of an uncertain human and his battered shotgun of immense power.

Roger is an affable, anti-hero--his faith in himself shaken after his wife splits. Finding the greatest weapon in the universe in his silverware drawer does little to turn him to hero, but it does give him an edge as he realizes he may indeed be capable of saving the world.

Talora is a mystery to herself--why can't she remember who she is? Why are there antlers sprouting from her head? One thing is certain though, Talora's magic is as chaotic as it is destructive.

Roger and Talora tread separate paths of discovery through a world run from behind the shadows. When their courses cross it is uncertain whether they will collide destructively or join together, but the fate of the world hinges on their actions.

Colby's debut Urban Fantasy novel is an enjoyable page-turner. His characters are compelling, his action fierce and his writing style hilarious.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Writing March 4, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is not my genre of choice but someone sent me a hilarious post from this author's blog, and I knew his work had to be entertaining. And it is! He is also an excellent and very polished writer and spins a humorous and interesting tale. Although, as I said, I don't usually read this genre, I would read another book by this author and anything else he happened to write.

I'm a big sci-fi and fantasy reader (no lie, I'm 6'4 and 250 pounds) and this is a great read. I'd like to see more from this author, I liked the writing style.

More About the Author

Frustrated with the generic, paint-by-numbers state of modern fantasy writing, Scott Colby is working hard to give the genre the kick in the pants it so desperately needs. Shouldn't stories about people and creatures with the power to magically change the world around them be creative, funny, and kind of weird? Scott thinks so.

Born in 1983 in Manchester, New Hampshire, Scott now resides in Somerville, Massachusetts. He can often be found reading or writing in the area's various watering holes of ill repute.
