    A ghostly whodunit turned into a Hey, didn t you do it Some of the storylines were slightly meandering until we got into the meat, but they served to remind us and explore a bit of what makes Fix a tortured soul Of course, this is pretty standard fare when it comes to the Noir genre, and it hardly m...

    3.5 stars.For real it took me a month to read this book Well, it s mostly my fault I ve been slapped with a pretty severe reading slump, and that had nothing to do with this.That said, my rounded down rating does reflect some on that situation While this book didn t cause my reading slump, it didn t really help me pull out of it The story was excellent, and on par with the first book in the series I really enjoyed the plot and the characters, and everything tied together nicely.For me it was the pacing that was an issue It wasn t enough to be a deal breaker, but it did get in the way of my enjoyment It seems that whenever the action really started to heat up, Carey has this habit of describe describe describe that completely takes me out of the sequence If you have a fast paced scene, y...

    The second instalment in this series really picks up the pace It s a little bit of a kitchen sink plot at first but when it comes together, it does so in a fascinating way Felix has to make some very hard decisions I m curious to see how the repercussions play out.

    I found this paranormal noir to be thoroughly engrossing and creepy It was dark and I can t see how Pen will ever forgive him for what he s done Carey manages to make exorcism quite fascinating, although I m also sure it really isn t

    Something very bad is happening in London, and the rising of the dead is only the start of it The ghost of a child has been stolen from her parents home A man ridden by a demon has become even disturbingly violent A local church seems to have been invaded by a dark presence Ordinary Londoners have suddenly succumbed to bouts of horrific violence.The end is nigh and the demons have come out to play.It isn t long before Felix Castor is right in the middle of the game.Carey s books make for fantastic urban fantasy pulp strong plots, vivid action, and an engaging narrator But while this series may be hardboiled urban fantasy, but I would not necessarily recommend it to Dresden Files fans Castor s world is significantly darker than the Dresdenverse While Dresden tends towards lightly hardboiled, Castor is pure noir isolation, moral greys, a cruel world, and a bleak future While the plot involves demons, it mainly centres around man s inhumanity to man and women children ghosts in sickeningly graphic and extremely disturbing detail Neither the protagonist nor his associates have...

    I ended up enjoying this one than I remembered This was my first time listening to the audio, and that I wasn t crazy about The narrator s voice was way too cultured for such a disreputable character, and if memory serves, Felix is from Liverpool If my memory of watching too many Beatles movies ...

    Book two in the Felix Castor series another 3.5 stars These stories are a lot of fun I m noticing that each time I think the story is tying up, I look at Audible and see there are several hours left Carey can weave ...

    I really like the the blend of mystery noir and paranormal occult in the Felix Fix Castor series The mystery element is the real meat of the story, not just a sub plot to carry the paranormal elements along In some ways Felix reminds of my favorite P.I Jack Taylor who is the lead in a series by Ken Bruen Although his backstory is a lot less tragic than Jack s, Felix regularly gets his ass kicked and somehow manages to get himself strapped up with enough banadages, booze, prescription drugs to get back on the case.In this story, Fix is hired by a couple looking to get their kidnapped daughter back The twist to this missing person s case not giving anything away is that the missing girl is already dead It s her ghost that was kidnapped What ensues is a story that is quite interesting and complex, with demons and satanists and a secret religious order that...

    Mixed feelings about the book overall Fix gets interested in a missing person case which opens up into a multi pronged mystery The mystery had a couple of twists which I enjoyed.I did think there was improvement on the pacing of the book, but there was a point mid book where it bogged and I started to skim My trouble with Fix s emotional state continues He often realizes he could cooperate or play along, but obstinately decides not to even when it s usually to his detriment Often, he antagonizes a source, which makes getting information difficult, and in this book, he goes so far as to antagonize the police I still don t understand why the zombie Nikki has anything to do with Fix at all, as they mostly seem to fight, and I don t mean in a jocular, kidding way The most compassion he show is for Abbie, the missing girl, and those he has let into his inner circle A circ...

    Eh, you know, this is perfectly competent urban fantasy Better than, in several respects The writing, in particular, is several cuts above the pack But it s doing that thing where the lone hero wanders around London alternately getting beat up and snarking at people Which is entertaining enough, but when it comes right down to it that s all you ve got because this guy is a lone hero, doncha know, so he has no real community or support system And what he does have will be stripped away by the story, because that s drama or whatever.Lone heroes bore me Tell me a story about an embedded hero Tell me about the one who talks to his mother about his problems tell me the story about the one who fucking has a mother Tell me about the one who has someone to call at three in the morning, and maybe it s a complicated, difficul...
