Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

“Written with a healthy sense of humor—but by no means a comic novel—the book should appeal to fans of supernatural fiction and also to readers of private-eye fiction who don’t mind if the mysteries get a little fantastic. Larson, author of several previous novels in the SF or fantasy genres, turns in a winner here.”


"...a wild, complex plot that was fast-paced and full of adventure." -Angela at

Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Quentin Draith wakes up in a sanatorium with no recollection of where he is, how he got there or even who he is. There is a cast on his leg, scars on his body and a small photo of a couple with a child hidden under his pillow. And the staff knows his name, especially the director of this very unusual sanatorium, Dr. Meng. Draith is able to steal a gun and clothing from the staff and escape to...where?

Slowly, he begins to fill in the blanks. Draith finds out he lives in Las Vegas, his house is burned to the ground, he runs a website specializing in the supernatural, and the coat he obtained earlier belonged to a man who died in the car accident that injured Draith. And the sunglasses in the coat pocket? They have the power to open locked doors, bend metal and are indestructible. Draith learns that the sunglasses are one of many commonplace items with unusual powers and they are just a small part of the deadly "game" he apparently has played before; a game played by "The Community".

Everyone seems to know Draith: the hard-ass detective accusing him of various murders, the stripper with the heart of gold, the faceless owner of the Lucky Seven Casino who prefers to sit in his darkened domain, the leader of the cultist group that can open doors ("rips") to other dimensions. Everyone but himself; his mind was "scrubbed clean" by Dr. Meng. Draith is determined to find out his past and the truth behind the car accident.

It's an interesting story that reminded me of a video game; there are the objects of power, invasive mutants called "The Gray Men", domains, rules, rogues, The Community, different dimensions, and everyone wants to win. Even in this context, the characters are believable, likable, interesting.

Mystery, thriller, with a heavy dose of science fiction (or fantasy) serving as the crux of the story, B.V. Larson's Technomancer is a surprisingly entertaining read.

Early in the book's setting, I was often reminded of Neil Gaiman's American Gods. However, the further I read, the further separated the books became, and for the better. Where I found American Gods to be an okay read that never provided any satisfaction to the intrigue it provided (or much sense from the protagonist), Technomancer provided a more practical reading experience and effectively builds on the intrigue. Though most of the characters are not terribly deep and ultimately forgettable, like American Gods many compliment the story to provide an added level of interest, if only to further sustain the plot. Larson used many of them effectively as opposed to relegating them to plot devices. Several reviews have drawn comparisons with other works by various authors; I have not read the ones mentioned so American Gods was the only story I found parallels to, though minor.

Larson has an easy to read writing style and seems to make a concerted effort when describing a sequence of events or actions so that the reader does not get lost or confused. He is also a logical writer, at least in the three books I have read thus far, where the reader can see the methodical process by which the protagonist comes to a decision or realization. Though this process can sometimes become tedious to read, Larson's style is not one to dwell for long periods with introspection, and that is why Technomancer, though somewhat procedural in its execution, was so entertaining. It has a brisk pace and does not waste your time wading through mundane story telling.

In short, Technomancer is a fun, entertaining story, a promising start to the Unspeakable Things series, and I look forward to reading more.

Quentin Draith wakes up in a private sanatorium, severly injured and with no memory. Then things start to get really strange. This is a totally new take on the urban paranormal tale. There are no extraterestials in this version of Vegas but rips in reality and a hidden world of powerful characters each with their own Domains and calling themselves the "Community".
There are power plays within the Community, an anarchist group who are doing things their own way and muder victims killed in bizarre ways, with a police detective who's more than he appears. Trying to navigate his way through all this without being killed or arrested, Draith tries to regain his memories and find what is left of the life he had.
I found this an imaginative, fast paced action book, that doesn't fall into any of the usual supernatural groups. There were moments of excitement, fear, sadness and yes laughter. For those who enjoy the weird and are looking for something truely new and different, this is probably it and looks to be the first in a new series.

Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I enjoyed this book. I can't say I've ever read anything like it, and that was refreshing. I had a bit of trouble getting into it - the first chapter, to me, was a bit confusing and I had a bit of a hard time getting into the story. However, that soon changed and I found myself really enjoying the characters and the story. Then, about halfway through the book, it seemed a bit over the top, when the objects' powers were being revealed, but I think that's because the story line was so new to me, so I struggled a bit through that, but it came out great on the other side and the story flowed again. In general, I think the author handles people and characters much better than magic, and that's what I was experiencing in the rough spots I had with the read, but overall, it was a good read that was not hard to finish, but only the main characters were memorable, especially, to me, the female characters.
