Unremarkable by Geoff Habiger and Coy Kissee could not be any less like its title. This supernatural historical fantasy is set in Chicago in February of 1929 and casts the infamous St. Valentine’s Day Massacre in an unexpected way. The novel, the first in a series, is tightly plotted, fast paced, and has plenty of twists and turns to keep readers guessing and engaged.

The story follows the character of Saul Imbierowicz, an ordinary man who is just starting his life away from his parents’ home. H

It shouldn't work. On paper, Unremarkable is a 20's era noir tale about gangsters and vampires with a heavy peppering of Jewish culture. Admittedly, I went into this book with an eyebrow raised. Few authors are brave enough to tackle genre blends and even fewer manage to pull them off. Much to my surprise, Unremarkable works remarkably well.

Geoff Habiger and Coy Kissee have created an rich yet grimy world that sucks you in regardless of genre allegiance. From the very first chapter, I could smel

A testament to the authors’ talents — the characters’ voices had accents in my head and I could feel the grit on the streets under my feet as I walked through this tale.

Descriptions were woven in such a way that I didn’t even know they were occurring, instead they just grew in the background and set the stage perfectly.

I truly cared about these characters and kept reading to stay a part of their lives and see how they fared.

I’d like to know more about the vampire lore of this alternate history,

Intensely Vampiric

I love a good vampire story and it has to be well written and not hokey, and this story was one of the better ones that I have read. This story takes the reader back to 1920s Chicago, and it's full of gangsters, mayhem, and what else, vampires. I enjoyed this story, really liking Saul and his connection to the elusive Moira. Great story.

But here is a snippet and overview of what I thought:

Overall, I liked the story. The writing is good. The plot was actually really interesting. I loved how it started and I also enjoyed how everything spun out of control towards the middle. The plot was definitely my favourite thing about this book. The characters were enjoyable but the shortness of the

Hugely entertaining tale mixing gangsters and vampires in 1920s Chicago. Love all the period detail and the wonderful sense of humor sprinkled throughout. A quick and very fun read.

I enjoy books that dive right into the action, and in this one the Valentine’s Day Massacre occurs in the first chapter. In spite of opening with that much of a bang, the authors are still able to maintain the suspense and excitement for the remainder of the story. I especially liked how Capone was portrayed as someone who seems completely calm one minute but his rage takes over in an instant. There isn’t much on Eliot Ness, since he makes a very late appearance, but this is a series so he’ll pr ...more

The concept behind this book was original and entertaining - vampires in 1920s Chicago, some meaning behind the St. Valentine's Day Massacre, how the rising tide of the mob was halted. Unfortunately, I found the writing a little stilted for my taste. It felt uneven; I'd really get pulled into a section, then things would slow up and I'd find myself floundering a bit... Ditto the characters. Everyone felt a little like a cliche, and I had a difficult time connecting with Saul (the protagonist). T ...more

Geoff Habiger was raised in the shadow of roaring lions and peacock calls in Manhattan...Kansas, not New York. (That's the Little Apple, not the Big Apple, for those of you playing along at home. And the wild animals came from living behind the city's zoo.) Growing up Geoff loved exploring the woods around his home, sneaking into the zoo (don't tell anybody), and playing baseball and Dungeons & Dr ...more
