4.0 out of 5 stars exciting urban fantasy, April 24, 2012
This review is from: Lies & Omens (A Shadows Inquiries Novel) (Mass Market Paperback)
Recently some of the Magicus Mundi otherworldly creatures have assaulted offices of the Internal Surveillance and Investigation government agency. The stunner is that the attacks have been coordinated in group waves as these monsters are notorious loners. The ISI agents and the Magnus Mundi are in mortal and immortal combat.

Though Miami based private investigator Sylvie Lightner is the first choice of those needing sleuthing amidst the Magicus Mundi in crowd, this is not her fight especially after what she recently caused in her city. Sylvie's neutrality in the ISI Magicus Mundi war changes when the latter threatens people she cherishes. With close allies, Sylvie, using her sorceress powers, searches for the diabolical genius who has consolidated the Magicus Mundi monsters into a cohesive fighting machine.

The latest Shadows Inquiries urban fantasy is an exciting action-packed thriller. Fast-paced, the protagonist remains an interesting lead character although her powers have grown immensely. Less detecting and more superhero than the previous entries (See Gods and Monsters, and Ghosts & Echoes), fans will enjoy Sylvie Lightner investigator of the paranormal.

This 'review' is by a well known poster of fakes.
Check out any of the other 27,500 'reviews' on this site!! Yes, thats a huge number. All four or five stars. Ever.
Read about her on google.
This might be a good book, but you won't learn from this review.

Lynn Benedict is an excellent author and writes good books. This reviewer, however, is not a good reviewer nor does she write good reviews.

Harriet has given us the set-up. It's not a required element of a book review. What are required elements are descriptions of the character development, the writer's style and treatment of their characters, plots, themes, and personal impressions. They are all missing from this review. There is a reason for that and it's because Ms. Klausner doesn't read the books she reviews. She is infamous for this and she's Amazon's No. 1 fraud. Google her and you'll discover the depth of her perfidy.

There are several excellent review of this book by people who actually read it. You can tell the difference by comparing them. You'll be much better off using them for help you decide whether or not to buy the book.
