The Water Knife by Paolo Bacigalupi
The Water Knife by Paolo Bacigalupi
Into the chaos of a prolonged drought step Angel Velasquez—a "water knife"; Lucy Monroe, a hardened journalist; and Maria Villarosa, a young migrant, who dreams of escaping north to those places where water still falls from the sky: All three find themselves pawns in a game far bigger, more corrupt and dirtier than any of them could have imagined.

Editorial Reviews

Review

"This is urban fantasy as men's fiction--Sookie Stackhouse meets the Dresden Files by way of Maxim." - Publisher's Weekly

"Not only was Blood and Bullets not a fluke, but it seems as if it was nothing more than Tuck merely flexing his muscles, cracking his knuckles as he tossed off a quick "warming-up" novel before he really got down to business and started writing." -Blogcritics.org

"I think Blood and Silver was even more exciting than Blood and Bullets, although I hate to say it because that one is in my top favorite books EVER and I don't want to hurt its feelings." - Literary Escapism

"... James R. Tuck has done what many authors fail to do...written a sequel that knocks you back a step or two, surpassing expectations, and for me at least, carving his name onto my permanent reading list. His vision for urban fantasy is dark, gritty, violent, and full of monsters." - Vamp Chix Bite Club

I did not think that Mr. Tuck could top Blood and Bullets. Well I was Wrong! The most enjoyable thing about the book is the non stop action. From the moment you start the first page to the last, its in your face action. I will buy every book he writes. Just keep cranking them out.

Deacon Chalk is the "Punisher" of vampire killers. There are no "good" vampires in this universe, and he kills them without mercy. It was a simple and fun novel to read. The writing style reminds me of the early "Mack Bolan" novels. If the series continues, I would love to see them for under five dollars unless the page count rises.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
As a tough as nails monster hunter, Deacon Chalk spends every free moment tracking down the things that go bump in the night. With unique abilities and an uncanny ability to avoid death, it would seem nothing can stand in his way, no matter how strong his opponent may be. When he stumbles across a pregnant were-dog being beat to death by a nasty lycanthrope group, he rushes in to save her. However, this time he may have bitten off more than he can chew as he has put himself in the middle of a shifters war. With Deacon and his crew right in the path of danger, there will be no easy solution, and this time around the costs may be too high to bear.

While Deacon still has quite the chip on his shoulder, his conceitedness seems to have toned down several notches, making him much more bearable. I think a lot of his softening is due mostly in part to the influence Tiff has on him. Of course that relationship is quite complicated due to his inability to really move beyond the loss of his family and fully open up to another person. However, there is definitely something growing between them, and I really admire her patience and ability to slowly break down his walls. Another major improvement in his character would be the lessening of the constant lectures. Deacon may still be rather repetitive at times, but at least he didn't comes across as so preachy this time around.

The extremely graphic violence in Blood and Silver was a little too much for my tastes. Considering the fact that I read a lot of Urban Fantasy novels in which there is more than plenty violence, it really says something about how excessively violent Blood and Silver was to bother me. Perhaps, it isn't really the amount the violence, but more how descriptive it all was.

I wish I could have enjoyed this book more, I feel like there just aren't enough good male leads in the genre and I was really starting to like Deacon Chalk. However I found the story to be utterly predictable, at times a little too absurd, and it felt like there should have been much more to the story. A lot of time is spent espousing theological views (which came off as preachy to me) instead of character development. The story also seemed like it was over too fast, there were no real twists or bends, just a straight line from point A to point B. I knew how the book was going to end after only a few chapters. I kept waiting for the twist but it never came. All that aside it is still worth the read if you liked the previous installments. It just isn't on the same level.

I want to say that i did enjoy this book and read it during a slow shift at work. There are tons of action scenes and Deacon is just about as hardcore as a guy can get.
I did feel slightly left out of some of the story as I have not read Mr. Tuck's short stories, but I did read Blood and Bullets and I seemed to be able to orient myself to the story failry easily, although I do highly recommend reading the first book....well first.
The only complaint I have..and really it's not much of a complaint just something that kept the book from being rated higher was all the different types of "lycanthropes". I undestand the author is trying to be different but some of the "were"-species were quite ludicrous to me and made me laugh.....but maybe that was his point..I dunno.
Still, if you like guns and big dudes with shaven heads and facial hair (I'm biased cuz I am one)then you will like this book. Deacon wastes no time in stomping mudholes in people and walking them dry.

Deacon Chalk is an Occult Bounty Hunter. Ever since his family was killed by a Nephilim five years before he's killed the monsters that needed killing. Ones that attack humans or are just plain evil end up on his radar and that's one radar you don't want to be on.

One evening he's out enjoying some time off at a street carnival with his friend Tiffany and they come across a guy beating a dog. Uh, oh...instant blip on Deacon's radar. When Deacon discovers the guy is a shapeshifter and not just a crappy human all bets are off especially when the guy's buddies show up and decide to kick Deacon's butt for interfering in what they feel is none of his business. Deacon feels otherwise, a fight ensues and with some help from Tiffany he wins Round One and takes the dog with him. But we all know that's not the end of things. Nope, it's just the beginning.

This book starts off with a bang and doesn't stop until the end with lots of action interspersed with a few softer scenes. Deacon is learning more about what his angel blood can do and the power is not insignificant, but he doesn't like using it. The most fun is learning how many different kinds of shapeshifters are in Deacon's world. The weres are many and varied, some are even a tad ridiculous (a were-shark? Really? And I'm not going to spoil the surprise on that other one O.O) and make me wonder if they are natural or laboratory born. We learn in this book that there are unknown forces out there, so it's a mystery still to be unraveled.

All-in-all a suspenseful wild ride and I look forward to 'Blood and Magick' to see what happens next.
