Now let's talk about the story. The particular talent of our hero is new to me and the style of "magick" used, involving sigils, and the various nonhuman creatures were, largely, as well, at least in their present adaptations. I am, of course, familiar with both the Disney and 1001 Nights (well, at least one of the English translations of the "Golden Age" Arabic original) versions of the Aladdin story of the genie/djinn) and was delighted with the spin Mr. Isserow put on the tale. Having not read Lovecraft, my knowledge of Cthulu is severely limited but he/it gets to play, too. Imaginative, creative and fast-paced, blown up bridges and chases, this adventure does call out for a Hollywood treatment but also does quite well in its present formats and I would recommend it for middle school (no sex; some graphic violence but well within tolerance for any who already read science fiction/fantasy; PG-13) on up.
Lee Isserow gives the fantasy buff everything they crave, a secret Illuminati agency protecting the Earth from Arcane threats with a hero who's equal parts, Harry Potter and Harry Dresden. Jules is that mage, master of an eclectic sorcery he has to rise to meet the threat of Cthulhu's Loins (you didn't expect the whole demon, did you? C'mon it's just the book). Jules has enough on his plate after he finds out his hero is the biggest disgrace in the Circle's history! If you like magic, shadowy organizations and Elder Gods of the universe, this is your book.
Stupid. Secondly, bad fiction; words used sound nice but don't mean what the writer thinks, and sometimes the opposite of what is intended.
"he walked up and down until he found the scrawled up black card the homunculi had handed him. . ."
Scrawled means "written hurriedly, messily"
The writer means crumpled. There are many, many similar mistakes. He also uses "adept" as a noun to mean an area of magical expertise like a shadow adept but that is not how it is used. He says "my adept is shadow." The writer tries to put his own spin on a magical world but his failed attempts at using words whose meanings he does not know, and his attempts to force a new vocabulary on us made this book a chore to read.
I sincerely think the writer has promise, but needs to rethink his approach, find a better and honest proofreader and editor and not try as hard to be unique.
Where to start? This is certainly a very original story, with fascinating characters. Quite different in many ways, like the protagonist being the anti-hero, and to be (initially at least) almost unlikeable. He has many endearing characteristics though, which just proves how multifaceted this character is. An intriguing new world created by Lee, one I would definitely be happy to revisit. It is, overall, a fantastic read. I would be very interested in seeing where this story is taken to next.
