Blurb: Tuulois MacColewyn’s simple life performing dirty jobs for fey hiding in New York City has died a quick death. Consulting for the NYPD on a case involving child abductions, losing a friend, laying siege to a stronghold at the end of Broadway, and being chased through a hospital by animated scarecrows combined to make last month hell. This month is shaping up to be much worse.
Yet, it’s not all bad. Cole has a new place to live, a steady-paying job working for the NYPD, and the heart of Inspector Joss Vallimun, head of Section Thirteen and, incidentally, Cole’s new boss.
Section Thirteen is understaffed and overworked, trying to solve every supernatural crime in New York, including a series of grisly child murders and evidence that local fey are being enslaved. When Vallimun is gravely injured just as the investigation reaches a fever pitch while a snowstorm blankets the city, Cole will need all the help he can get to have any hope of salvaging this month at all.
Review: Oh My God… It’s here finally after waiting years and years and years… What? What do you mean it wasn’t that long ago? Well, it felt like it was years and years that I waited *pout* and honestly you should know by now I have no patience whatsoever. Anyway, back to what I was saying it’s finally here… the long-awaited sequel to The Thirteenth Child and it is just as Brilliant.
Cole is back and he is just as leather wearing as ever. He might now be a special detective with Section Thirteen but he’s not retiring his leather for anyone. Joss is now his lover and superior and it seems to be going well for them and James Corhagen is still living in Narnia (I doubt he will ever find those closet doors) and now makes snide remarks about Cole and Joss.
This book starts with Joss and Cole trying to solve the murders of some young boys. Then Corhagen having really bad timing (which I thought was really funny) and a new murder which has ties to a private school. As Joss, Cole and Corhagen investigate they find it’s much worse than expected when they discover that The Hermetic Order of The Golden Dawn is involved.
Wow! what a trip I have got to say that this is just as good as the first book and J.L. O’Faolain keeps it paced nicely throughout; throwing us little tid-bits that begin to make more sense and fit together really well the longer we read. The relationship between Joss and Cole is really good and the sex between them is scorching hot. Joss’s injury hits Cole hard but he has to save the fey and stop the one who calls himself the Lord of All Fey.
So my recommendation is you go get this book and read it ASAP. but if you need more reasons than that then how about this, red-hot scorching sex, Marcel the ogre, Jynx the changeling, Boogaloo the wood goblin, Mal the ghost sorcerer, a pack of Cu Sith (fey wolves), pixies, a trow, a tree dryad, cake golems!!!, alchemy, a witch, Aed Deigh (Cole’s double headed blade which has cool new powers), Cole’s twin guns, explosions… do I really need to go on???
