Overview

The name is Bond, Shaman Bond. Better known as Drood, Eddie Drood. Yes, I’m one of those Droods—the family who’ve been keeping the forces of evil contained in the shadows for as long as humans have walked the earth.
 
Recently I suffered a slight case of death, but thanks to Molly, my best girl (who happens to be a powerful witch), I got over that right quick. Unfortunately my family wasn’t so lucky. In my absence, Drood Hall was destroyed and all my relatives were killed. Which left me as the last of the Droods.
 
I didn’t much like being the Last Drood, I can tell you—and then I realized that things weren’t as they seemed. Someone had activated a dimensional engine, sending my Drood Hall off to an alternate Earth, replacing it with a burnt-out doppelgänger. My family is still alive out there. Somewhere.
 
And nothing’s going to stop me from finding them….

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

Eddie Drood, a.k.a. Shaman Bond, belongs to a crime-fighting brood of many generations. In his latest supernatural outing, Eddie returns from the dead to find his ancestral hall totally ruined and his family missing. Only later does he realize that his home and kin have been deviously transported by a dimensional engine to a remote location. To return them to a secure reality, Drood and his ever-bickering girlfriend Molly Metcalf will have to put their differences aside and outsmart the culprit. Now in mass-market paperback and NOOK Book.

Kirkus Reviews
Another in Green's Secret Histories series about Eddie Drood, aka Shaman Bond (For Heaven's Eyes Only, 2011, etc.), set in the same universe as his Nightside yarns and occasionally intersecting with them. The Drood family protects humanity against such outside threats as the Hungry Gods and the Apocalypse Door. Droods in good standing with the family are gifted with various superpowers and an impenetrable suit of golden armor that manifests on demand. Some time ago Eddie left Drood Hall and became a field agent operating in London. This time, arriving at Drood Hall with his girlfriend/sidekick Molly Metcalf, a powerful witch, Eddie is aghast to find the heavily defended ancestral pile an utter ruin; even his armor no longer works. After surveying the wreckage, and pocketing the Merlin Glass, a handy space/time wormhole, Eddie realizes that this isn't his Hall at all, but a duplicate. The real Hall has been sent--somewhere--by means of the dimensional engine Alpha Red Alpha, to which only a family traitor could have had access. Hundreds of pages slouch by while Eddie and Molly indulge in numbing banter and Eddie enlarges on his powerful and noble and complicated and entirely too numerous family. Finally, he decides without any evidence that the culprit must be Crow Lee, the Most Evil Man in the World. In order to track down Crow Lee, however, our heroes must find their way to the Department of the Uncanny, where the Regent of Shadows is sure to know Lee's whereabouts. What action there is consists mostly of bodies of various shapes and sizes exploding into gobbets of flesh and sprays of blood, and for even the most avid readers this sort of thing quickly palls. Let your path lead you to the Nightside series, which has everything--real wit, personalities, plot, invention--that this book does not.

    More of the same...

    I really like Green's books. I really do. But lately it seems that as his series continue he just runs out of new things for his characters to say. One could cut probably fifty pages out of each of his books by removing his standard lines that arent used just once, but flogged over and over. In the same book! The other issue I have is the crossover of his different series. I like that he puts his different characters and locales in his different series, but once again it just seems like he has run out of ideas and just uses them as filler, slowing down the story. I'll give one more chance after this, then I'm done.

    I love Simon R. Green's writing, and it kept me going through a story that felt a little threadbare. Molly and Eddie's constant smart-mouthed bickering got a little old about halfway through - it was like being stuck at dinner with that couple who argues at the table and not being able to escape.

    That being said there were a couple of interesting plot twists, but the ending was very predictable and cutesy. Love the Droods, but this series is starting to get the same flogged-to-death feeling that the Nightside series did at the end.

    Carries on the tradition

    Carries on the tradition of the Droods. Mr. Green has again fascinated with his continuing tale of the Droods. Can't wait for the next episode to see what happens going forward.

    I really enjoyed this book!

    This series continues to be entertaining. I have read all of this series as well as the Nightside and Ghost Chasers series. They are all great and I would recommend any of them.
