This is everything an urban fantasy should be. Thrilling, fast paced, with a plot that twists and doubles back on itself masterfully, all the while utilizing a worldview that draws heavily on folklore and actual magical lore. Chris Underwood has just made his way to the top of my Immediate Buy least, and he's tied with Craig Shaefer, which is a huge compliment. Of you're a fan of books like the Daniel Faust series or Black Magic Outlaw, buy this book immediately. It's perfection
Then it turned up on my Goodreads list so I checked out some of the reviews and took a punt, so glad I did.
The Dark and Mysterious Lost Falls unfolds at a great pace, not too much, just enough to keep the story moving but it hints at so much more. I like the approach tot he supernatural and I liked the way the Characters become more and more real as the story unfolds. The protagonist certainly comes to life and the book wraps up really well with a good lead into further stories.
Comparable to Dresdon etc if you want to put a Genre title on it, but its unique and dark and a bit gritty.
I finished the book today (3-22) and my above review still applies with the exception of the couple editing errors I saw, certainly not enough to detract from the story or require another edition be uploaded. The downside is what it the hell am I going to read now? *sigh*
On the pro side, this book has its own flavor, not being just a derivation of other established series in the genre. It seems to be grammatically correct, and doesn't over or under emphasize descriptive text. The magic system is, without calling it good or bad, at least not boilerplate.
On the con side, the characters are, to me, kind of flat and just don't pop. The movement through the plot is also, to me, kind of weak. Ozzy - the main character - just seems to assume/tell us that things are important when, without the main character explicitly telling me so, I would not otherwise have thought so. The villains also kind of just monologue. The magic system, while not the same as the most popular urban fantasy series out there, is not flashy enough to call it exciting.
It's an average read, for me, but not so bad that I would refuse to finish it or anything. Writing is hard, and just putting together a whole story is an enormous effort; I applaud the author for that. But based on this one book I think it shows that it takes a little more practice to have a really polished work that stands up to scrutiny. But it's the first book in the series, so I'll look forward to seeing how the author matures in writing style.
Ozzy gained his power the hard way, through sacrifice and study. His abilities are modest compared to the super-powered wizards that populate the pages of most such stories, and were all the more believable for it. Ozzy is definitely one of my favorite characters in recent memory.
I'm eagerly awaiting Book 2!
