Editorial Reviews

Review

A fun, fast-paced novel suitable for readers who appreciate grit, sarcasm, mystery, and dimension-hopping... blurs genre lines, combining a hard-boiled detective story with urban fantasy... Like any good noir story, the narrative is told from a first-person perspective, and Nica is a chatty narrator with an irreverent, self-deprecating sense of humor. Having a female detective in this genre is a refreshing change from the usual, and the conversational tone of the writing makes it all easily digestible... Perry also has a flair for detailed, unique similes.
- Kirkus Reviews


A strong female lead who kicks some serious behind... Defies genre norms and takes the reader on an epic journey.
- Write On! Indie Book Reviews

Now this is Urban Fantasy the way I like to see it done: immediate, perfect suspension of disbelief, widely divergent characters fully delineated, complex and riveting story lines, writing so good the pages practically turn themselves.
- Mallory Heart Reviews


The FRAME world and its implications in the noir mystery genre could make quite an interesting crossover genre series... If you like fantasy and parallel worlds, pick up
Nica of Los Angeles today.
- Rabid Readers

Perry has a unique voice.
- Big Al's Books and Pals

Nica's wit and sense of humour (even in dangerous situations) came across perfectly... A very clever and gripping novel.
- Shari Sakurai Book Reviews

An unusual and intriguing piece of speculative fiction.
- Land of Midnight Days

From the Author

It all started at a high school track. I went by a hurdle and imagined its reaction to getting kicked and knocked; I wondered if the hurdle played favorites - did it ever stretch up or hunker down (ever so slightly, no one would notice) as a runner passed overhead? Nearby, the gymnasium pulsed with cheers during a basketball game, and suddenly I saw the years of endless games and assemblies from the gym's perspective.

That first notion of seemingly insentient stuff with its own life and attitude evolved into the FRAMES quartet of books. No track hurdles or high school gymnasiums yet grace the cast, but I'm just finishing book 2 - with two more volumes to go, who knows? After all, in the world of FRAMES, anything is possible somewhere.
 
I do feel a debt to that hurdle and that gym so maybe I should include them. Writing FRAMES has been a blast, Nica is great fun to have around, and, above all, I'm grateful for the enthusiasm so many readers have shared about FRAMES.
