This pairing is amazing, the detail Eric Flint is known for is combined with the real world experience of Alistair Kimble who balances out the dryness that I normally find in Flint's work. Even better finally some urban fantasy that takes a break from the modern cliches of vampire and werewolves mixed with too much romance.

This was a fun book, and a nice change of pace for Flint, and a surprise teaming with (according to the cover, "real-life") FBI Agent Alistair Kimble. While I love the 163x series, I'm also a fan of mystery and crime fiction which Iron Angels is, at its heart it's an FBI procedural that goes into urban fantasy territory. I enjoyed the characters' interactions, especially the two main FBI agents, Jasper and Temple as they were pulled deeper and deeper into the fantastic. There's plenty of action, pop culture references, and wisecracks as they go about their investigation and ultimately face down quite a few bad guys who are somewhat incompetent, but fun to read about. Overall I liked the mythos and hope to see another book in the series--Iron Angels certainly left it open for further adventures! One last thing: if you're mainly into Flint's 163x series, this may not be your cup of tea, but if you enjoy crime fiction and don't mind some fantastic creeping into your fiction, give it a try.
