This was an incredible start to a new Urban Fantasy series. We meet Jersey "The Brawler" Romero and he is dying of old age like all people do. He has lived an extremely rough life in the city of Glory. Glory is looked over/protected by the mystical goddess Glory.
"Yes, it's a grim fact that the streets of Glory have killed more people than cancer. Sacrifices to the Goddess of Glory-the Twilight Goddesses. She's truly a harsh mistress who favors the strong."
It sounds complicated and when I first read the blurb I was like pass. Then I read the few reviews the book had. I'm really glad I read Ghost of Glory.
Jersey is called on by his city, his goddess Glory to protect her from a great evil, the Black Crux. Oh man are the evil!
While Jersey isn't a saint he has lived in the bowels, the blood and crap of Glory for so long. He is her perfect champion to fight such a great evil.
"Not all knights are meant to shine. Glory prefers her champions dark, bloody and scared."
This book reminded me a bit and I say this very loosely, Sin City. Just with the seedy atmosphere and dark themes.
Glory is described as as such a dark hopeless place, it makes me wonder why fight for her/it? Or is that just Jersey's perspective?
I was going to give this book a five until we got to the Grace. I get! I do, but it was really disturbing! I had a hard time with the entire way it ended. Really gave me the willies. I also kept thinking "NO! what about Abigail! That can't be right! I refuse to believe that about her!"
I absolutely don't want to give anything away, however I can tell you I have a new Urban Fantasy series on my Auto buy list!!! Totally awesome and you should add it to your TBR ASAP!...Sara
Ghosts of Glory proved to be an immensely satisfying urban fantasy novel. It takes Greco-Roman mythology with all of its violence, power plays, and sex and brings it into a modern cityscape replete with fast cars, prostitutes, booze, and even hamburgers. The character of Jersey grabbed me right from the begging and Chalfant's writing propelled me through a high octane journey to a satisfying conclusion.
Chalfant is a Picasso using words to paint a vivid picture of a dirty city in need of cleansing creating wonderfully vivid characters with delicate brush strokes of literary delight. The end result is a brilliant canvas in the form of a well crafted tale masterfully blending suspense, fantasy and urban action; the action is nonstop!!! The characters are vivid personas playing off each other in a well choreographed ballet of intense dialogue and plot that will ensnare a reader drawing him/her deeper into the story eagerly tuning page after pulse pounding page. Chalfant is also a master of humor, he possesses the uncanny ability to inject dry humor where a reader would least expect it. As I cringed through Jersey enduring never ending torture I’d find myself chuckling at well placed one l liner sprinkled like a delicate spice to perfectly enhance the flavor of a scene. I agree with the author… ABBA music can be as torturous as nails on a chalkboard.
