Powers by James A. Burton

  • Albert Johannson lives off the grid. He’s forgotten more than he remembers about his past, but those snippets he’s retained tell him two things: he’s lived a long, looong time and he doesn’t trust anyone, particularly gods. He’s not any too fond of demons either,
    particularly the one that materializes in his kitchen wanting to hire him for a special mission. It’s as deadly to cross a demon as to deal with him, so
    Albert reluctantly agrees to investigate, putting him in the path of a prickly arson detective named Melissa el Hajj with trust issues of her own. Clashing at a crime scene, they uncover a broken seal that seems ancient enough to have been forged by Solomon himself. The seal cries out to Albert that he must mend it or something dark and dire will happen. Albert, who has a special affinity for metal, must first discover exactly what that will do to his kind — and he’s only just beginning to understand who and what he really is.

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.
