"Take a little Mickey Spillane, some Dashiell Hammett, a bit of Raymond Chandler, and mix it with Phillip K. Dick's Blade Runner; add a taste of C. J. Box, and Craig Johnson, and you've got a masterpiece of a first novel. I hate to call any novel a work of genius, but Stout's Titanshade taps all the right keys." —W. Michael Gear, New York Times bestselling author
"Debut author Stout combines a pitch-perfect noir tone and a richly detailed world full of human, amphibian, and less-identifiable characters in this instantly gripping fantastical mystery.... Stout handles this complex mystery with ease, invoking the best elements of classic noir mysteries, while fearlessly making this world, with its retro style and multilayered mythology, all his own." —Publishers Weekly (starred)
"Titanshade is entirely unique: it’s a gritty noir murder mystery on an alien world with multiple species, a strange form of sorcery, a powerful religion, and large-scale political intrigue. And it’s set in the 1970s, with pay phones, 8-track tapes, racial tensions, and arguments about disco music. What’s amazing is how good it is at being all of these: the genuinely compelling mystery lives in a hugely original sf world and an immersive historical milieu." —ALA Booklist (starred)
“Dan Stout’s debut novel is flawless. Titanshade is set in an original, gritty fantasy world, like enough to ours to take you by the throat as the detective noir plot roars along, yet filled with intriguing other beings and moments of remarkable magic. Highly recommended.” —Julie E. Czerneda, author of The Gossamer Mage
"If you like rollicking detective stories with some action-adventure and alien culture to overlay the mystery, you should give this one a look. I can almost guarantee it won't be what you expect." —SFRevu
"All in all, the book grows on the reader, slowly at first, but then with the speed of a rabid kudzu vine egged on by supervillainess Poison Ivy. By the end of the book Titanshade satisfies well enough to make you start over at the beginning to see what you missed." —New York Journal of Books
"Titanshade was a wonderful blend of magical realism, police procedural, and thriller." —Genre Minx
"This is a solid debut, giving us a fascinating new world, some fun characters who feel real, and a story which, I guarantee will keep you turning pages into the wee hours." —Sci-Fi and Fantasy Reviews

The world creation continues, as we get introduced to new characters and get deeper into the intricacies that make Titanites love their flawed city. I highly recommend this book.
What a political powder keg Titan’s Day was! After the rediscovery of the century, there was a great push for control of the city and Carter was caught up in the middle of all the political machinations. Though the pacing was slower and it had less action than the prequel, this story still delivered a solid mystery that has many layers to it and a cast of characters that were all interesting and memorable. What truly drove this story, though, was Carter and his unrelenting and unapologetic hunt for the truth. He truly looks out for those who are on the harder side of things and makes no pretenses otherwise. Luckily for him, he was partnered with Ajax and Ajax has his own moral code that was pretty much in line with Carter’s. I loved them together and the dialogue between these characters was both entertaining and comical. Overall, Titan’s Day was a fine piece of detective work and I am very excited to continue in this series!
