Although the novel is a self-contained story, the author also sets up what looks to be a bang-up series. Highly recommended to any SF, fantasy, or horror fan who likes their humor dry and their spooks snarky. In the interest of avoiding spoilers, I’ll just say if any of this sounds like your cup of tea (with a nod to the charming UK and continental settings, including castles *and* pubs, not to mention the lovingly restored WWI-era tank that plays a role), grab this book!
There are really relatable characters in this tale and everyone, from heroes to villains, is distinct, memorable and enjoyable. I'm a big fan of this genre and this one was a true joy to read. It's earned its place alongside my favourite books, and there aren't many debut novels on that shelf! I really hope he writes more of these, I'm hooked!
I won't go into the story since much of this has been mentioned in previous reviews. Don't be afraid to read these other reviews as they contain no spoilers and may further incite your curiosity of this book.
Of note is that the characters and scenes are drawn with a painter's eye for detail and precision. I found the depictions of the characters and scenes engrossing in and of themselves -- beyond what what they contributed to the story's progression. Those finely wrought moments were like going to a museum and appreciating a painting without worrying about what movement the painter belonged to or what it's supposed to mean.
Collectively, though, the book concerns a Dr. Newton Barlow, a character who initially struck me as sharing a similarity to Richard Dawkins in their outspoken reliance on science as their first and last method of understanding the world.Read more ›

All I can say is wow. Love the style of writing. A couple of typos(so what). Read the book in one day. Couldn't put it downPublished 5 hours ago by Kindle Customer
Book was well-written and well-edited, and started out great. The first half of the book was interesting but then in the second half, it got a bit too weird for me. Read morePublished 18 hours ago by Kindle Customer
Never could get into it, dragged along, hard to follow, jumping from different stories to others and back, I gave up!Published 1 day ago by Alana Gann
although it started off a bit slow, after the fourth ( or so chapter) it picked up. Both the author's style, humor ( and the characters he crafted) created quite a compelling readPublished 2 days ago by Lama Jigme Gyatso
Clever premise with a logical, non-believing scientist embroiled in the world of magic and the paranormal. Fun read. Would be interested in other books by this author.Published 5 days ago by KMT1415
As a writer myself, I appreciated the fact that the author has a thorough knowledge of language - used the right words, correct tenses, good spelling - which, I know, a lot of... Read morePublished 7 days ago by G. Byrge
I can't quite talk myself into giving this a 3rd star. I expected more humor. There was some but not much. Mostly horror. It dragged on and on.Published 9 days ago by Stanley Townsend
