A Great Adventure
Originally posted at: www.longandshortreviews.blogspot.com ***** The Banshee's Walk Is a great action adventure book.
Markhat is a finder, and now after learning from Lady Werewelk that she thinks someone is trying to steal a house from her he intends on figuring things out. With his new teammate coming along too, Markhat is trying to talk to people to see if there are any suspects.
This was a really good book, with some fun characters. Markhat was a believeable hero, yet I thoroughly enjoyed his mama, who was caring and humorous. The lady was a good, fiesty, well-rounded character. Gertiss was a nice partner to Markhat even in her obvious inexperience.
Darla, with her abilities, was cool as well. The bits of romance were good mixed in with the mystery, and the search for the answers was really quite interesting. The villians were well thought out and I enjoyed how Markhat interacted with his friends and allies. I also enjoyed the close friendships too. It was great that Markhat was not too disagreeable to let others help him on the case.
This book never got predictable and the action stayed thoughout which was great to read and I really enjoyed the humor throughout. All of the characters had their own place and were realistic. I believe this would be a good series, and I would certainly read other books by this author.
If you enjoy detective mystery stories, some good action and adventure, and a bit of romance with some paranormal thrown in, then this is the book for you.

This is my favorite of the Markhat novels so far--but they are all good and worth every penny. I started with Dead Man's Rain and was hooked. Markhat is a well-developed character and grows and changes in each novel. The mystery plots are top-notch. Highly recommended for fantasy or urban fantasy readers. These are fun reads.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
