"Amazing series...sit back and enjoy this awesome ride!"―RT Book Reviews on Fearless (4.5 stars)
"...Rollicking action and pure fun."―Publishers Weekly on Fearless
"The Pax Arcana books are seriously good reads. Action, humor, and heart with unexpected twists and turns. If you are (like me) waiting for the next Butcher or Hearne -- pick up Elliott James. Then you can bite your nails waiting for the next James, too."―Patricia Briggs, New York Times #1 bestselling author of the Mercy Thompson series
"Loved it! Charming is a giant gift basket of mythology and lore delivered by a brilliant new voice in urban fantasy. Elliott James tells stories that are action-packed, often amusing, and always entertaining."―Kevin Hearne, author of Hounded on Charming
"I loved this book from start to finish. Exciting and innovative, Charming is a great introduction to a world I look forward to spending a lot more time in."―New York Times bestselling author Seanan McGuire on Charming
"James's world is rich and complex and well worth diving into."―Richard Kadrey on Charming
"In a saturated literary realm, James's tale stands out for the gritty, believable world he builds...This is masculine urban fantasy in the vein of Jim Butcher and Mark del Franco."―Booklist on Charming
"This debut introduces a self-deprecating, wisecracking, and honorable-to-a-fault hero who can stand up to such established protagonists as Jim Butcher's Harry Dresden and Seanan McGuire's October Daye. Combining action and romance -- with an emphasis on action -- this is a top-notch new series opener for lovers of urban fantasy."―Library Journal (Starred review) on Charming
"Grab some snacks and settle back as splendid debut author James serves up a Prince Charming tale yanked sideways...James's reluctant hero faces threats and danger with a smart-ass attitude that keeps the narrative fast-paced, edgy and amusing. Mark this name down -- you will undoubtedly be seeing more from James!"―RT Book Reviews on Charming

The third book in the Pax Arcana series. Ted Cahill is now sheriff in a small college town when strange things start happening so he puts a call in to Sig and the team comes. As they start investigating, all signs start pointing to someone using magic against a student, Kevin Kachida, and doesn't care about innocent bystanders. To protect Kevin and stop this person, John and the team are going to have to go deep into the supernatural underground and deal with bigger forces than they ever have before.
I found this one a bit less fun than the previous ones. They are focusing on an outside threat to someone they didn't know before and for no reason other than to stop casualties. It meant that the team basically split up for the entire book which meant very little character or team growth. It was much more of a basic action/adventure story and the characters really could have been any one. I have the next one in the series but I'm taking a break after this one.
What I loved: Sig. Talk about your strong female sidekick–she’s like a hard-core, foul-mouthed, non-human Buffy. Also, EJ’s slightly deadpan humor reminds me of Douglas Adams. Another thing–and this is weird for me–the tense shifts. I can’t figure out why, but when John Charming talks to the reader, it works for me. I asked author Elliott James to explain this strange sorcery. His answer here: Elliott James on Shifting Tense
What I didn’t love: Hard to come up with something… Honestly, there were so many quotes from this book I wanted to scribble onto sticky notes and paste to my wall, it was a little annoying. That’s all I got.
Skim factor: Zilch. I wanted to speed through this, but some books demand you savor every word. This was one of them. FIVE STARS
Has me excited for the next volume to come out. Downside: Why o' why are you making me wait a year between these? The author's writing is so good, I'd like there to be more. That's a good problem to have.
Also, the Navy does not have battleships. So maybe his brother was serving on a carrier?
Otherwise a very good read.
