Cold Iron PDFEPUB #235 Hot Lead Cold Iron is the first novel in a brand new fantasy detective series that will appeal to fans of Rivers of London and The Dresden Files Chicago Mick Hot Lead PDF Oberon may look like just another private detective but beneath the fedora and the overcoat he's got pointy ears. I really enjoyed this book The setting in 1920's Chicago was a refreshing change of pace for an urban fantasy I liked how the author used historical figures not as characters but as reference points and period slang to make the setting feel authentic and not an idealized version of the times The Otherworld was interesting too and I like the nature of the relationship the fairies have with humans and the human realm It's a slightly different spin but fits a lot of the old mythology well I liked how backstory was worked into the main narrative usually in asides where relevant Others might not appreciate it but I liked how it helped avoid the dreaded info dumps and breaking the fourth wall a bit seems a natural fit for Mick I really loved the main character It was nice having a fae main character who felt alien and less like a human with magic Mick isn't human in his thoughts morality biology and culture Mick constantly has to remind himself to act human to blink to fidget to make the humans that surround him feel at ease His magic was powerful and interesting in the way that it worked but it was by no means the answer to every problem and it had limitations and restrictions I also liked the way the human world affected Mick and made things harder for him The lack of even the hint of romance was refreshing as well With Mick as old and inhuman as he is a romance with a human doesn't make sense They are just too different Considering his problems with the rest of the fae a romance there wouldn't have worked for me either Mick really isn't in a relationship sort of headspace so I'm glad that the author chose not to go there The plot is interesting and even though it felt like it dragged in parts the ending than made up for it I'm really looking forward to reading about Mick and what drove him out of his home realm

Hot Lead Cold Iron Mick Oberon #1And he's packing a wand Oberon's used to Lead Cold Iron Mick Oberon PDF or solving supernatural crimes but the Lead Cold Iron PDF #206 latest one's extra weird A mobster's daughter was kidnapped sixteen years ago replaced with a changeling and Mick's been hired to find the real child The trail's gone cold. This book is a fun ride It stands apart from other urban fantasy series from first being set in the 30s and second from its noir rootsInevitably the comparison to the Dresden Files will come so let's put that to bed There is some both are PIs in Chicago and have magic Any other similarities are because both pull from the genres of Urban Fantasy and Noir And let me tell you Hot Lead is so pure detective Noir you could set it on fire and the ashes would spell out Mike Hammer and Sam SpadeThat is one of the strengths of the book it feels like I'm in a speakeasy listening to Mick recounting his case I feel like I know Chicago from reading this Some of this comes from Marmell doing his research from the 30s slang that drips from every page and from the strength of the narrative itselfOne thing that surprised me about the main character is that Mick Oberon is not nice Sure he aspires to be this whole thing starts because someone Else needs money but there are times when he's cold and heartless and there's a hint that something darker is underneath the identity he's wearing In that respect he likely does owe some comparison to HammerWhat's also cute is how Marmell uses some of the noir tropes to heighten the fantasy elements Detectives get beat up constantly but soldier on; in the mortal realm Oberon heals fast from any non maiming beatdown that doesn't involve iron Detectives have great and awful luck; Oberon's magic is luck related and he notes that the type of sidhe he is have very extreme kinds of luckBut beyond the Noirness of it all the Urban Fantasy is certainly there Oberon's jaunt into Chicago's Otherworld lasts only 70 pages but it's a Trip Marmell's vision of how the fae realm looks is I will say it uniue I've never seen this done and let me tell you I'll be checking out the next Oberon book just to see of it The book does have its weaknesses While the mystery itself is interesting the villain isn't We get a reasonable motivation but I never feel it I never really feel this villain at all and it's not really interesting The power comes from the emotional connections the other characters have to the villain and the real conseuences of those actions even after the villain is put down Sometimes it also feels like Oberon is not in real danger but that's only sometimesAll in all it was fast fun and colorful read
