James's world is rich and complex and well worth diving into."Richard Kadrey on Charming"
In a saturated literary realm, James's tale stands out for the gritty, believable world he builds...This is masculine urban fantasy in the vein of Jim Butcher and Mark del Franco."Booklist on Charming"
This debut introduces a self-deprecating, wisecracking, and honorable-to-a-fault hero who can stand up to such established protagonists as Jim Butcher's Harry Dresden and Seanan McGuire's October Daye. Combining action and romance with an emphasis on action this is a top-notch new series opener for lovers of urban fantasy."Library Journal (Starred review) on Charming"
Grab some snacks and settle back as splendid debut author James serves up a Prince Charming tale yanked sideways...James's reluctant hero faces threats and danger with a smart-ass attitude that keeps the narrative fast-paced, edgy and amusing. Mark this name down you will undoubtedly be seeing more from James!"RT Book Reviews on Charming
