Praise for the Maradaine universe:
“Maresca’s debut is smart, fast, and engaging fantasy crime in the mold of Brent Weeks and Harry Harrison. Just perfect.” —Kat Richardson, national bestselling author of Revenant
“Veranix is Batman, if Batman were a teenager and magically talented.... Action, adventure, and magic in a school setting will appeal to those who love Harry Potter and Patrick Rothfuss' The Name of the Wind.” ―Library Journal (starred)
“A well-conceived and well-written melange of popular fantasy sub-genres: there’s a university with a magic department, there is some vigilante derring-do and thievery.... If you’re looking for an action-and-adventure-filled new fantasy series, then The Thorn of Dentonhill will suit very well.” —Civilian Reader
“The Thorn of Dentonhill is a light-hearted, fun read, and Maresca has introduced a hero with plenty of room to grow, a couple of villains who will provide plenty of conflict in upcoming books. And, most importantly, he’s created a character that I care enough about to continue reading.” —Relentless Reading
“Take the caped avenger of Batman, the teenage-superhero angst of Spiderman, the street-gang bravado of West Side Story, and toss in the magic of Harry Potter, and what have you got? Marshall Ryan Maresca’s The Thorn of Dentonhill.” —Kings River Life Magazine
“Maresca brings the whole package, complete and well-constructed. If you’re looking for something fun and adventurous for your next fantasy read, look no further than The Thorn of Dentonhill, an incredible start to a new series, from an author who is clearly on his way to great things.” —Bibliosanctum
“The Thorn of Dentonhill was a fast-paced read with action from start to finish. I loved every minute of it.” —Short and Sweet Reviews
“Definitely a fun read, and one classic fantasy fans will likely enjoy.” —Bibliotropic
“So much of it is terribly exciting and fun.... What I really liked about the ending was how it set up relationships and possibilities for the next book (which I definitely plan on reading).” —Tenacious Reader

However, the book is a slow start. There is a quick action filled sequence right out the gate, however, then there is a pretty slow 60 pages where we have to be introduced to three different ethnic groups. Don't get me wrong, I loved the book overall, but beware you may speed through 40 pages and then stall out a bit. When you get to the top of that hill though, watch out. You will not want to put it down
Great World building!
Prose is very pleasant to read
This is building into something bigger, and I for one can't wait
Minox and Satrine are back and wrapped even deeper in problems than last time. Satrine is dealing with a past she can't shake off, Minox is being pulled under by a future he can't figure out how to navigate.
The murder they need to solve involves all the people and things a good inspector Hayes because they get in the way of the job.
This book is absolutely fun, and try not to have anything you're beholden to do when you pick it up because of won't be free until it's done.
