Publisher's Summary

Unleashed magic. Secret pasts. Hidden worlds. Welcome to the Dark City.
My name's Morgan Rook, supernatural detective, undercover agent, odd jobs man. Call it whatever you like.
I take out the nightmares, demons, and werewolves. The things that lurk in the shadows around you. Guys like us call them Nightkind.
And here I was, set to quit this dark life and retire to sunnier climes, except for one final job. There's always one. This time a call to eliminate a cruel, rogue vampire, named Mr. Tudor. Simple, right?
Sure. Until the bodies started piling up in a new wave of vicious occult killings leading scarily close to my own front door, sparking a series of deadly events that would make my years of fighting the Nightkind look like a cakewalk.
Add high-octane chases across the city, a game of shadows, and undead assassins all topped off by a trip into the terrifying world between worlds - the last place you'd ever want to find yourself.
And the clues...they're all adding up to something...something big...and they're right in the palm of my hand.
The missing piece of the puzzle? How in the hell I fit into all of this....

Rook shows Dresden how to magic

I used to be an Urban Fantasy snob. I had only read a few other UF books, basically all of the Dresden Files, and a few other books. Then I fell into a host of other books and found interesting characters like Nate Temple, Roy Morgan, Sandman Slim, and Montague and Strong. Now, I can add Morgan Rook to that list!! He pretty much out Dresdens Dresden. An exteremely intreresting guy, I could read about him all day long.

The book is a an absolute whirlwind. There is a mystery, but the action really takes center stage, and we get to see punches, swords, guns, and magic all being employed to bring down whomever Mr. Rook is combating. The story sucks you in immediately, and you won't want to put it down. In fact, you won't even realize how far in you are until you are almost done. This is a character driven story, as much of the plot consists of go there and kill that (not saying that's bad, but it is the character of Rook that will keep you reading).

Compton is excellent as Rook, too. He enlivens the character, and I think in few books he will BE Morgan Rook in the same way that James Marsters is Harry Dresden. The man can undoubtedly tell a story, and his tension adds to the pell-mell pace. Just amazing work all around. Even though I did receive a promo code for this review it in no way influenced my considerations of the material, and in fact, inspired me to be more honest. In fact, getting a code generally makes me harsher as a reviewer as I am more often concerned what someone like Me will decide based on my review.

I can see this being a long lived series that has a fan base that just grows and grows. It is fun, exciting, has a killer main character, and is packed full of so much action the words almost burn off the page.

If you love urban fantasy, great fight scenes, a magic weilding mofo of a detective, and superb villains then this is the book, and therefore, series for you. Get it now.

Magic, Magical Detective, Vamps and More!

Dark City
The Order of Shadows, Book 1
By: Kit Hallows
Narrated by: Shawn Compton
This is an audible book I requested and the review is voluntary.
I thought this book was great. I loved the magic, the creatures, the action, suspense, characters, plot, and twists. It was never dull and I kept me interested. It kept me guessing and eager to figure things out. I definitely want to read or listen to the next book.
The narrator's voice was clear and kept the book flowing well. The emotions and moods were performed perfectly. Great job!
