The Art of Madness based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
I came across this book yesterday afternoon through a promo from R.R. Virdi. I've already been following his Grave Report novels as well as The Books of Winter. This was different in a quirky way. Phoenix McGee is more upbeat and cheery than I expected characters to be in the genre. Though, there are certainly many moments this comes off as a superhero novel, than supernatural fantasy. Some moments were almost too sweet and positive (if that is a thing) and they made me cringe, but, the overall story was still a wonderful five stars. It's something that will take getting used to if you're coming from reading extensively in the genre. It's peppy, Phoenix comes off as a cheerleader at times, but I believe his art is in the right place and maybe he really can just be that positive. If you can separate it from the genre, and the works that dominate it and their tone, I think you'll enjoy this mix of a cheerful Doctor Strange/supernatural fantasy book.
