Everson Croft here, professor of mythology and behind-the-scenes wizard. Show me an amateur conjurer, and I'll stop him before he gets himself killed. That's the idea, anyway. But New York City isn't what it used to be, and I don't mean the recent crash. Amateur casters are calling up creatures they shouldn't be able to. And there's been a murder at the city's most hallowed cathedral, a message in blood on the victim's back the NYPD wants me to interpret, like yesterday. Something tells me I'm in over my head. And that's not just Chinatown's newest mob boss, a scary-powerful vampire, or my possessed cat talking. No matter how much magic I hurl, worse keeps chasing bad, and I'm amassing enemies like they're aluminum cans. Did I mention the end of the world might be nigh? Damn. Maybe I'm the amateur here.

Say hello to the new Harry Dresden! ( )
  Azalia07 | May 27, 2020 |
Fun read

Interesting first in a new series. Some similarities to the Dresden Files, but not enough to be insulting. I enjoyed the story and liked the cast. Looking forward to the next book. ( )

I had the pleasure to win a copy of the audio version of this book. The narrator did a very good job, especially with the male voices and emotional content. The story itself follows a down-on-his luck wizard who comes from an illustrious (dark) family. He is a good guy, but seems very good at getting himself into fixes. He is something of a behind-the-scenes magical savior in a world that is not aware of magic. He also tends to work alone and not tell anyone he works with about his true circumstances, even those who know about the magical world.

So, the setup is pretty familiar (especially to anyone who has read any of the Dresden Files books), though the details are different. I wondered why Croft was so good at screwing up, when he seems to have decent experience and a backstory that supports him. There is more to learn about him, such as the real story behind the demon housed inside him and the development of his relationship with his cat succubus. He definitely finds himself attracted to strong and competent women, although I wondered why his colleague did so much to cover up for him.

Overall the magic world is interesting, and perhaps a bit too complex for a first book. There are so many elements thrown in that Croft has to balance that it became a little confusing. And it made it hard to give each a solid enough foundation. By the end, Croft has to make some choices and let go of some of his resentment in order to succeed. And that changes everything for him. I'm interested in learning more about this world, as things seem to be a bit uncontrolled.

(from my GR review) ( )

Professor Croft, wizard, magic, law-enforcement, action-adventure, NYC, snarky, no-gratuitous-erotica

At last, NYC has its own kick *** wizard! Chicago has Dresden, and Ramirez covers the west coast, but what about NYC? Sure, there are The Others who hang out with Graham Winters at their club, but the City needed a wizard! And the best part is that he is also a professor, comes from a long line of magic wielders, and puts himself out there when no sane person would. This book centers on the plot as outlined in the publisher's blurb, but is so much more. Just short of being a snarkfest, Croft is a wiseacre of the first order, and there just have to be more adventures soon. But enjoy this one now!
I have the audio performed by James Patrick Cronin, and he really nails it!
I requested and received a free copy from the publisher, author, or narrator courtesy of AudioBookBOOM. ( )
