Genre-wise this is still a mystery/fantasy combo, but compared to book one, this one has a little less of a noir feel, possibly due to the budding relationship (maybe?) between Daggers and Steele. Not to say that a romance erupts, but you can kind of see where this is going for the rest of the series…
The plot and characters are definitely the star, though we do see a bit more of the world and city in which Daggers & Steele operate. The mystery elements are great, with multiple reveals throughout the story. Highly recommended, and can’t wait for part 3!
Their world tech seems to mirror ours in the 20th century in many ways. The characters hold the same feelings, needs, prejudices & loves we humans have felt since time began, so when you suddenly realize the guy they're talking about is a Troll, or that not only is Steele smart and lovely, she's also an elf... it can feel almost like a surprise! It's written in such an easy, casual style that sometimes, because he doesn't pound magical cliches into us, you almost forget it's a fantasy. As a 'full-on proud' Fantasy & Sci-fi reader, I was surprised that I liked this aspect of the Series a lot, it's a very nice change!
His other series' are very different in many ways, but the enjoyment is still there, very much so!
This is an excellent, unusual & exciting writer. I've begun all his series but not finished any yet, and I rather hope it takes a while to reach the end of all of them, because they are that good!!(Usually I race through a series to get them all read right away- these I want to savor slowly!)
That being said I keep waiting for more detail. I want to know more about the characters and what makes them tick. I want the mysteries to have more meat on their bones for instance I didn't want the author in the second book to tell me how the case wrapped up, I wanted to be there for the final interrogation. All in all not a bad series and I did buy the third book.
I'm looking forward to the next book in this series and all the other books as well.
