I'm a big fan of the Metamor City podcast and finally seeing these in print made my day! It was just as fun reading it as it was listening to it. I'd highly recommend it to anyone into fantasy. Read this then move onto a more substantial story like The Muse or The Sentinel.

280 pages of his first day on the job with one little incident. Needed to have more going on. I will read next book with hopes of more activity.

Michael arrives at his new job in Metamor City, a homicide detective. Michael has a knack for figuring things out. When he looks at a crime scene it plays out in his mind. Michael meets a few co-workers and a tour of the magical city he now works and resides in. Welcome to Metamor City... Metamor City is a magic filled city where magic is on the rise. The city has a curse and Michael, or any human, needs an amulet so the curse doesn't affect them. There are many who willingly let the curse take them and change them to something supernatural. The curse is slowly expanding the city limits with the rise of magic. There is a wide variety of Supernaturals, which are natural here! We spend time with Michael and Kate as Kate gives him the tour of the station and the city. I love Kate. She's cute and I enjoy her personality and humor. lol. Dip your toes into the waters of Metamor City. This novella gives you a taste of the world and what is present in the city. There is a feel of so much supernatural here! We start to see the city setup, a layer cake setup. We even get a brief history of the way magic has changed things here, like the citadel - which was once a castle on a mountain. Now this is interesting, the affects of magic on the city and the brief history of the heroes that lived here. At this point we have seen a wolverine, a vampire, magic, gangs, and guns. Yep, works for me. I listened to this story, and found the story was easy to listen to. Chris doesn't speak overly fast which I can easily follow him, and his voice is soothing. I'm looking forward to listening to more and "seeing" more of what this amazing city has to offer.
