This is another good book in the Hellequin series. This book is pretty similar to the others. lots of action and a current story told simultaneously with a historical backstory ala Highlander.
The author does a great job of providing more definition to the protagonist by the flashbacks in the story. The character definitely changes and grows throughout the series and this book is no different. I thought the main character was becoming a little too nice compared to earlier books, but he goes back to form once pushed far enough. That edge is what differentiates this character from other urban fantasy leads. I hope the author doesn't forget that.
This book can get a bit graphic with language and violent. It could be listened to by young adults but straddles the border of what would be appropriate. This one is actually more kid friendly than previous books. You could read this as a stand alone but would enjoy it more if you have read the previous books in the series.
If you like the series so far you will enjoy this one as well. I had this on pre-order as soon as I saw it and definitely do not regret the purchase.

I enjoyed the story line and quick wit of Nate. He is a lot like Dresden. Looking forward to the next installment.

These books keep getting better. The characters are strong and have depth. You love the heroes and even loath the villains.
The storyline is engaging and I couldn't stop reading. Quickly jumping into my top five authors.
Recommend this series very strongly.

As usual, Steve Mchugh has done it again. A brilliant story based on the life of Sorcerer Nate Mcgarrat.
James Langtons voice is so easy to listen to, he could read the phone book and it'd be exciting!
This story sees the escape of Pandora. The mix of mythological characters with Greek Gods and magic adds an interesting twist to the murder, crime and investigation genres.
I'll miss Nates stories, here's hoping Mchugh keeps this chronicle alive!!
