I don't normally read Urban Fantasy. I have tried several times and don’t usually enjoyed it. Patrick Hester’s “Into the Fire” was different. I thoroughly enjoyed it. The pacing was good and I never got bored. There were enough twists and turns that I got wrong to keep it interesting. I also liked Hester’s take on Vampires and other mythical creatures. I am excited for the next book in the series.

Patrick Hester's "Into the Fire" hooked me from the beginning. Mr Hester's writing style is excellent; fast-paced, clean, and detailed enough to immerse the reader in the world without drowning him or her in trivialities. The plot is also interesting and well-constructed, containing enough turns and twists to keep me uncertain of the outcome until the climax. If I have one complaint, its that all the characters seem very familiar to the genre, from the impulsive, plucky protagonist to the cynical, world-weary mentor. Fortunately, this is the first book in what appears to be a series, and Mr. Hester has world enough and time to further deepen and develop the characters. Summation: A good, solid first installment. Based on the strength of "Into the Fire", I wouldn't hesitate to buy the next book in the series.
