Wilson has crafted a compelling world, and I can't help but be drawn in completely. If he writes about these characters and this world for the rest of his days, I will still not be satisfied. Be prepared to be surprised by "Preacher's Marsh". It is a wonderfully powerful piece of historical fiction that shares the location, if not the characters, of the other works.
While the concept of a centuries old 'young' mage in the current day urban context emerges as a refreshing model, the fact that there appears to be a magical charm for everything, right from opening locks to making oneself invisible, and that the protagonist has all of them, in addition to being able to access mysterious portals, kind of lessens the intensity of the plot and the action.
The character of romantic interest of the protagonist (Donovan), 'Amethyst' is quite hollow and under-developed, even after the chronology of the four books.
The first book is a good read, after that it gets unconvincing and quite superficial...
The world was ok. Characters are a little one D and some dialogue was banal. Overall I'd recommend the series, just not in large chunks. Just know I should never read more than 2 in a series at any one time. I like buying the omnibus, just need a break between books, my bad. Ciao, Misc.
Loved the last few tales but for some reason had a hard time getting into the first couple. I thing if they revise this bundle of stories they should rearrange the tales. I actually liked the tales where he talks about the background stories better then the main dechance tales. I think they had more favor to each character and I wanted to know more about them.
This is one of the best series I have recently read, and I read a lot. I don't understand how few people have reviewed these books. It's similar to The Dresden Files but not the same. It's fresh, and very interesting. Anyone who likes fantasy fiction should give this series a read!
A little dark and unusual. Not necessarily something I would have purposely chosen, but since it was offered as an omnibus, I thought, why not? It was somewhat familiar and yet a little different. Well written, very few errors. I enjoyed the entire group. I would read this authors work again.
