    I first ¿discovered¿ the world of Cosa Nostradamus and the good


    I first “discovered” the world of Cosa Nostradamus and the good folks from Private, Unaffiliated Paranormal Investigations a few months ago, meaning that’s the first time I read one of the PUPI books although I’d known about them and other works by Laura Anne Gilman for quite a few years. I’ve regretted the lost time but my procrastination does mean there’s a lot for me to enjoy before I have to join the hapless many who wait impatiently for each new book.

    The one I read last March was the third in the series, Tricks of the Trade, and I intended to go back to read the first two but we all know what happens to good intentions, don’t we? So, here we have book number four and a wild ride it is.

    Life is never exactly what we would call “normal” for Bonnie and the rest of the Talent she works with, that is, a handful of humans with magical abilities who fight magic-related crimes. To do this, they have to keep their skills away from the notice of Nulls, those poor humans who have none, and always be on the alert for the misdeeds of the fatae, supernatural creatures. Bonnie has been ordered to take some vacation but her boss, Ben Venec, has invited her to help with an outside job at a museum in Philadelphia and, the next thing she knows, she’s in the thick of the search for a truly vicious serial killer as well as trying to figure out why young girls have been living in a park in New York City. A very large side issue involves money and Ben’s partner, Ian Stosser, with some deadly collections efforts.

    Bonnie and Ben finally give up their fight against a mutual attraction but the romance in this particular book is kind of lightweight. I’m not actually sure if that disappointed me but I think maybe not. It was enough to lighten the mood a bit but the investigations are too important so I can wait for the romance to develop more in future books. Some very dark things happen in Dragon Justice and it will be interesting to see where Ms. Gilman takes us next.

    One of my all-time favorite dark fantasy characters, the well-to-do Great Worm known as Madame, is once again an important element and I loved visiting her along with Bonnie. Wouldn’t you love to have a dragon friend in your corner, especially one with such good taste?

    Fantastic

    I think this book is my favorite so far in this series. There are some major events that take place that will really effect future books of this series. It has been a rocky journey at times but Bonnie is coming into her own and more confident emotionally. There are some major events in this book and I can't wait to see how these will effect future story lines of future books in the series. I love the characters, the "magic", the plot, the action and suspense. What a great break from everyday life. I look forward to many more PUPI books.

    DRAGON JUSTICE picks up several months after TRICKS OF THE TRADE

    DRAGON JUSTICE picks up several months after TRICKS OF THE TRADE left off, and PUPI is busier than ever. Nevertheless, Ian Stosser gives Bonnie Torres an off-the-books job that has inter-Cosa implications. With some help from her fatae contacts, she solves the case, and is ordered to take a vacation. In searching for something fun to do, Bonnie ends up taking the train to Philly to meet up with Ben Venec, the other Big Dog of PUPI, who's involved in a side job of his own at a local museum. They are pulled into a murder investigation that has far-reaching effects for them, the pups, and all of the Cosa Nostradamus.

    Laura Anne Gilman's characterizations are spot-on as usual. We've watched the pups - Bonnie and Ben in particular - grow over the past four books, and there are quite a few plot threads resolved here. If you love the world of the Cosa Nostradamus, you'll enjoy this book. I finished it in about a day; could hardly put it down. As always, Gilman delivers a great book.
