But I was intrigued enough by this book that I requested the prequel. It did relieve some of my frustration, but not all. The prequel novella and this first book should have just been combined into one novel. Because without the prequel, this book might have been only a 3 or a 3-1/2 Star read for me--there were just too many blank spots. So my strong suggestion is to visit the author's website and get the prequel novella to read first.
The plot is somewhat unique. There isn't much in the way of romance, but there's a lot of action. The Heroine is interesting. The hero, unfortunately, doesn't have much depth; but there are some supporting characters that show a lot of promise. The main story takes place in the near future in a supernatural urban fantasy environment.
Worth reading of you're a fan of the genre. I'll definitely go on to the next book of the Trilogy. I may even check out her other series.
Ruby Callaway is back, and she is seriously screwed. Imprisoned. Stuck in a time loop. Lots of bad nasties gunning for her. Yep, pretty much a day in the life...and reliving that day just gets worse. With a demented serial killer (that's an oxymoron) on the loose, a case to solve, and an FBI partner that sometimes believes her explanation of the time loop, dying and starting over doesn't just reset the ticking clock it sometimes resets everything. She's got to figure out how to stop a killer before there's nothing left to reset.
LOVED Lightning Blade. Fantasy with a dark side so appeals to me. Life is messy. Sometimes scary. Always about survival. That's Ruby Callaway every day of the week...even when it's the same damn repeated day!
Bone Realm gives the backstory of Ruby Callaway and Lightning Blade is her first modern urban fantasy adventure in DN Erickson's series. As my son (who read this Lightning Blade after me) put it, "this is one kick-a** babe". I guess I have a weakness for "kick-a** babes" as I love this character (though, frankly, the supporting cast is pretty darn good too). These two books were very well written, full of action, and totally enjoyable. Combined, these books are a great start to the series. I'm going to rush off to read book 2.
Why write urban fantasy at all if you don't want magic in your story.
Make it science fiction instead. Having the heroine in prison is fine, but are you going to tell me not a single magic user has any power.
The necromancer should have been destroyed within the first 5 minutes as his powers never would have worked with all the magical suppression fields up.
Rewrite the world so that it makes sense and give what might have been an interesting story a chance.
