I've read the "Extensis Vitae" series (Mr. Mattix' previous work) and found that the writing got better with each installment. While he started out wholy competent, I'm glad that he wrote that first as fantasy can be a bit more challenging.
Now, having said that, I found "The Twilight City" to be an enjoyable read that I sped through in only a couple of sittings. The writing was crisp, the characters well developed (with room to grow in later books, of course), and the plot well paced.
As this is a review and not a book report, I won't go into details other than to say that there is some misdirection in play and right and wrong, good and evil, aren't completely clear, or black and white (sorry for the cliché)
I look forward to reading the next in this series, "Doors of the Dark", which I'll be buying right after I submit this, and then, thankfully, the final version which looks to be released in a few days, on 12/27.
This World has the potential to carry another couple of books with no problem. Add to that, the characters are nicely developed, especially the Heroine. She is a fantastic mystery. The different and varied "Planes" of the Nexus can also contribute to the plotline. I was rather let down with the ending of this first book, as I was hoping for a bit more resolution--or at least a better way to lead the reader into the next book. But at least it didn't end in the middle of an action scene.
Even though this book read rather slowly for me, I never considered not finishing it. I will more than likely continue with the series.
