Overview

Albert Johannson’s forgotten more than he remembers about his past, but two things he's sure of: he’s lived a long, long time, and he doesn’t trust anyone, particularly gods. He’s not too fond of demons either, particularly the one that shows up in his kitchen looking for help with a supernatural investigation. Albert's a strangely gifted blacksmith, not a P.I., but crossing a demon can be deadly, so he reluctantly takes the job—which puts him in the path of a prickly arson detective named Melissa el Hajj who has trust issues of her own. Clashing at a crime scene, they uncover an ancient wrought-iron hexagram, a broken relic as old as Solomon. The thing may herald catastrophe unless Albert can mend it—but Albert has yet to grasp just what his special powers really mean . . .

I didn't know what to expect with this book, but I loved it! I never quite know what a new pen name means - is the author going in a new direction that I won't like, will the writing still be in a style that I appreciate, etc... But in this case I liked the writing and the book even better than Hetley's other books. The story was intriguing from the start, and just got better, taking turns which I wasn't expecting, but found interesting and thought provoking. The characters were believable and appealing. The wit displayed in the writing was funny and not overdone. I was reminded a bit of Neil Gaiman's work, which is always a good thing. Definitely recommend this one!

Bought the eBook on the recommendation of author Sharon Lee (who happens to be James A. Burton's next-door neighbor). Read it in a single sitting; enjoyed it tremendously! The characters are well-drawn and believable, the world-building is excellent, and the pacing of the novel worked well. Highly recommended.
