This time around, Draith knows a little more, but still nothing about his past. He is down on his luck, despite possessing an unusually large number of modestly powerful artifacts (one let him force any lock he wants, another makes him heal very fast, a third makes him immune to the power of others' artifacts etc.) and a mansion obtained in the first book, but now emptied of most furniture and art.
The eponymous "Bone Triangle" is a seedy area just off the strip where a number of murders have recently taken place, with the killer leaving behind piles of the bones of his victims. Up drives a pretty blonde in a red Mercedes who offers Draith a large sum of money to find and return her daughter, and off we go, in another genre mashup of crime noir and fantasy. Several of the characters from the first novel return, and we learn a little bit more about each of them and their relationship to Draith. Finally the murderer is revealed and it is up to Draith to fix everything.
I liked Technomancer well enough, but I liked The Bone Triangle even more. Draith is a likable protagonist, perhaps even a bit too likable with too much conscience for a guy in his line of work.Read more ›
The place is Las Vegas, the world is similar to this one, the time is around now - but all those nuclear experiments in the Nevada deserts ripped holes in the universe. Bad things are slithering and growling through the gaps, and weird artefacts have been created which bestow on the bearer a variety of peculiar talents. Like invisibility, good luck, teleportation, rapid healing - but there's always a price to pay if you choose to use them.
In the midst of all this, Quentin Draith is trying to come to terms with his lack of memory, his lack of money (although he has been given a mansion by a casino gangland supremo), his newfound artefacts... and the fact that a living lump of lava just materialised in his basement and is burning through the carpet.
BV Larson writes entertaining and swiftly-paced prose. He's very at home in Las Vegas environs and does a great job of evoking the bleached, bone-dry desert and sleazy atmosphere of the Strip. He's created a raft of interesting characters for this series - the archetypal corrupt cop who's actually keeping a lid on all the weird schtick that's going on in town; the sewer-dwelling ganglord; various rogues (like Draith) who have an artefact or two and get into all kinds of scrapes.Read more ›
I really enjoyed the first book and was looking forward to reading this. The book was good, but it was a bit of a slow start for me. The first third of the book past before I felt that the adventure and the intrigue really got going. If they allowed half stars, I'd have given it 3 and a half.
Here's what I liked - The action was solid and Draith's characterization was good. MeKeeson's character grew in the story and added some needed depth.
Here's what didn't click for me - I know with the noir style mystery there needs to be a slow reveal, but I felt there could have been more down with the Mercury portion of the story arc. Actually, there was so much in the novel that felt underdeveloped. Between that, the Beast, Gutter Jim there really wasn't much time left for the female romance. Jacqueline's part was so weak and underdeveloped that it couldn't hold my interest and she was put on the back burner for a large chunk of the story.
Overall, this was still an entertaining read, but I am hoping book three will be closer to book one than it is to book two.
The story revolves around Quentin Draith, a private investigator who, in Book 1, awoke from an injury without any memory. He quickly discovered the world is a blend of normal humans, supernatural or alien creatures, and objects with strange powers. I don't necessarily mean supernatural as in werewolves or vampires, more like creatures not of this world (you do get hints later of aliens or creatures from other dimensions). He escapes and seeks to discover who he really is and track down how he ended up badly injured in the hospital. That was Book One.
In this book, Quentin still has (mostly) no memory but has quickly acclimated himself to his role as a rogue amongst various allied factions, all of whom are a blend of extra-dimensional aliens and humans. The author expands the groundwork laid in Book One, and you learn more about the origin of the otherworldly aliens and the "magical" artifacts that give characters power. This is the backdrop against the central plot, in which Quentin battles a very nasty creature bent on world (or at least city-wide) domination. Quentin battles the creature and the various factions that may or may want the creature's existence. It's a solid read, very enjoyable with great imagination and character development. Outstanding value for the money.
