unshapely things

by Mark del Franco
ISBN 13: 978-0-441-01477-4

I really like the dark fantasy/detective genre. A few years ago, when LKHamilton showed up with her necromancer, I was delighted with this story. But, at the time, it was hard to find many people writing in this new subgenre. So I am happy to say that del Franco has found a comfortable spot here.

Conner Grey, a former hotshot Guild investigator and now a broken down druid, lends his expertise to the Boston city police in murders and crimes involving supernatural victims, etc. Most of these crimes are found in the Weird–a place very similar to the drugged – crimed neighborhoods of today. Grey’s disability was caused by a case, while working for the Guild. Because he lost his power, the Guild retired him so there is no love lost between Grey and his former employers.

del Franco did a great job in pulling the reader into his fabulously detailed world. I liked this book so much that I was on Amazon the same day looking for the sequel. Great job.

I give this one 4/5 stars.
