The action flows, and terrifying, delightful, and touching moments bind the narrative together. I appreciated the awareness and focus on the difficulties that alternately shaped people have interacting with the world, and the efforts they make to adjust. As always the familiar's bond leads to shared mental spaces and thoughts that are deep and chaotic, fascinating and frustrating for cougar and mage alike.
We also see more mage politics and different factions at play, as well as more tasty tidbits about the rich history behind the structures that Thomas is fighting to change. Our ferocious feline gets himself into trouble quickly, and faces difficult choices, but will he make his big score, or watch his gains vanish before his eyes?
If you enjoyed the other books, this one is an easy sell or it could make an quick jump into the series. I recommend it.
Fortunately the book ends with a wide-open door for further stories. This is not a spoiler, because it’s so minor, but I can see Thomas developing a sideline of custom-made “service animal” carry harnesses for quadruped familiars. After all, even magi and familiars are learning how handy, and inexpensive, certain mundane items can be, and let the familiar do his share of the lifting.
I suspect that Thomas and Rudy have enough experience with free enterprise to expand whatever product line they develop to include optional-at-extra cost soft armor panels resistant to both mundane and magical weapons. “Supply creates its own demand”.
Freelance Familiars ends up in Vegas, protecting or maybe just visiting the refugees from Grantsville.
And boy do they get to know the magic users a Vegas and not always in a good way. A bounty on Thomas‘s head, O’Meara’s innards try to take a trip out, and Rudy’s history gets exposed.
And Thomas ends up getting something is needed but didn’t always want: permanence.
