I really like Green books and charactors but spending 13. US for a book leaves you hanging , i felt ripped off. I gave 3 stars for story and -3 stars for the cost. Not sure i will the buy another..... not sure if Pub. House or Green reads these reviews but .....

Simply smashing! Eddie Drood, aka Shaman Bond, is Fleming's iconic character cheekily reimagined for a wild world where magic, aliens, and alternate realities are everyday (even if the ordinary person does their best to pretend otherwise).  Simon Green simultaneously parodies and praises the tropes we know so well from the Bond films - like the Matriarch (for M) and the Armourer (for Q who must always be visited before a mission, just because that's the way it is done).  At the same time, Simon Green's novel is far more than a parody.  It is a gorgeously imagined urban fantasy filled with strange beings, unusual technology and more than a little mayhem to amp up the fun.  The witty and flirtatious interplay between Molly and Eddie is an absolute joy, reminiscent of the fun screwball comedies of the 1930s.  It is always fun to see how they respond to the challenges thrown their way - and in Dr. DOA there is more than a few. Eddie Drood is dying.  Someone managed to slip him a poison the likes of which no one has ever seen.  The suspect - Dr. DOA, a shadowy assassin of which little is known other than that his victims never survive and no one knows how he kills them.  Attacking the Drood family is never a good idea, and Eddie and Molly are loathe to give up before finding a cure and/or giving Dr. DOA a taste of his own medicine.  In their search for clues, you can expect rapier wit, thrilling action, and more than a few amazing events.  The only thing that I didn't care for is that Dr. DOA ends on a cliffhanger and that I will have to wait until the next novel, Moonbreaker, comes out to find out what happens next. 5/5 I received a copy of Dr. DOA from the publisher and netgalley.com in exchange for an honest review. --Crittermom
