Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Bestseller Green adds a winning fifth entry to his Secret Histories series (after From Hell with Love). Eddie Drood, aka secret agent Shaman Bond, and his family are the last line of defense between humanity and the big, bad, magical things that go bump in the night. When Eddie and his witch lover, Molly Metcalf, stumble across a Satanist conspiracy, the Droods vow to stop the Satanists' horrific plan, which involves a mysterious Great Sacrifice. Along the way, Eddie tackles every possible over-the-top supernatural action situation—an office building full of bad guys, a Supernatural Arms Faire—with aplomb. Clever world-building, madcap characters, cheeky one-liners, and a James Bond feel make this series stand out, and a surprise ending will have readers eagerly anticipating the next Eddie Drood adventure.

Library Journal
Shaman Eddie Drood, of the power-wielding Drood family, wakes after a near-death experience to find the family in chaos, its Matriarch murdered by someone within. In addition, a new Satanic Conspiracy threatens the world, seeking to take advantage of the Droods' weakness. Green's latest addition to his witty urban fantasy series (The Man with the Golden Torc; Daemons Are Forever) continues its spoof of the James Bond adventure/suspense genre as well as the supernatural detective story. Drood is a likable character with a devoted and uncannily sensible wife as his support and better half. VERDICT Series fans should enjoy this extended parody and the genuine storytelling skill that lies beneath it.
