A month after the explosive end of his mission to the Divide, Vincent Whelan is spinning his wheels. He’s struggling to rebuild his business, frustrated at his position as Tom Tildrum’s “minion,” and uneasy about the dangers the near future will bring.

*I received an ecopy of this book from the author. This has not influenced my review.*

This one was my favorite in the series so far!

This series is action-packed, plot-driven, and fairly fast-paced, which makes for a great read when you want something gripping that you can get lost in. And I felt like the plot and pacing were better this time in that it wasn't fight scene after fight scene, like the last one seemed to be, although the fight scenes that were there seemed even more in

I don’t usually like post-apocalypse stories, but mix them into an urban fantasy and, if done well, it will usually hit my sweet spot. The post-apocalyptic world of Clara Coulson’s The Frost Arcana series definitely does that. Human civilization has fallen with the revealing of the paranormal and the fae rule what’s left except for a small number of protected human cities. Into this world comes Vincent Whelan, a half fae former cop who’s now a private detective and successful “stretch scavenger” ...more

Vincent, the main character in this series, really intrigues me. The events in this book really ramped up that feeling. In addition, not only is this installment well-written like the other two previous books, we delve deeper into Vincent’s fae heritage, and see more of his fae side. Really, I don’t want to give too much away in this review, but we also see a much bigger picture of Kinsale and its inhabitants, and how far Vincent will go to save “his” city. While the plot sort of moved away from ...more

3.75 stars rounded up

In the same breath as the previous book -- but now Vincent experienced being betrayed by an old friend and another one that he thought he trusted. Also, Vincent found out that he might as well be an important part of the upcoming (another) apocalypse and well, Vincent had to learn to deal that he couldn't hide his glamours anymore.

Though Coulson's writing is good, I guess now in book #3, I have to settle with the fact that I'm not going to be emotionally connected to Vincen

Vincent Whelan is trying to restock his shop of ‘found’ items by hitting up a nearby town that is nicely deserted. All his stock was destroyed when someone breached his wards and his shop exploded. He has some new premises and people will always need towels, sheets and stuff, so he’s off to the nearest Bed Bath and Beyond.
He soon learns why this town is so deserted and still mostly intact; it's home to a nest of vampires. Special forces had trouble taking down vampires in the post reveal War bet

Human/Faerie Inner Battles Fuel a Great Urban Fantasy

This series simply improves with each book. Each time I think we get a handle on the fantastic character of Vincent, we are shown more of his depth and the nuances of a human/fae hybrid and the battles for his soul.

Tasked by his Queen, Mab, to deal with an ancient god, Abarta, Vince is forced to react quickly to a situation in the Otherworld, again! This time he is accompanied by his old college friend Rian, a Gancanagh, Odette, the human wit
I received an ARC edition of this book from the author.

You need to read the first 2 books, What Fate Portends and What Man Defies, to understand the background for this book.

This book is like the next stepping stone for the war that it is coming. There is a ton of action, but the meat of the story is more about Vincent really having to come to terms with the line between being Fae and being Human. I think it will be interesting to see how the addition of new players in their battle makes things

What Gods Incite continues the saga of Vincent Whelan - half fae, half human (and trying very hard to let the human part be the one that people see when they encounter him). He just wants to be a scavenger/dealer in one of the protected cities where humanity now lives after having been defeated by the fae in "the war". In his trying to be human, it doesn't help that he is hated by an old god for thwarting his plans and that he was appointed by the Winter Queen via The King of the Cats to be the ...more

It really wasn’t until book three that I’m starting to like Vince. It’s not that I disliked him or anything in the first two books, but he was the reluctant hero before – almost a curmudgeon before his time. In What Gods Incite, he starts to become the hero we all knew that he’d be. More shenanigans ensue when Vince’s old friend, Rian, appears at just the right time to bail our hero out, and lend his skills to the fight against perennial villain Abarta. But as usual when fae magic is involved, n ...more

I received an ARC of this book from the author.

Loving this, I have enjoyed this series right from the beginning, this book though is darker has more mayhem and action yet still manages to grow Vince and his crew along with this post-apocalyptic world they live in. Yep, I loved it!
I really like Vince and the more the rest of the crew are involved the more they have grown on me, I can't imagine Vince without them now. This book is a rollercoaster of action with more paranormals and zombies, betray

In the book we find Vince and his cohorts struggling to fight on more than one front. Vince's finds an old friend, struggles with an identity that grows stronger with each battle, gets pulled deeper into Mab's clutches, makes a new deal with a god, discover's new enemies that overwhelm the odds and finds truths that he has ignored for twenty years and pays for his inattention. What could make for a better adventure than this? It's a good thing that I have learned patience in my old age as I wait ...more

Not as tight as the prior books

I found the vampire subplot in this book to be a bit confusing and something about it felt contrived. While I loved the whole trip to Hel, and the betrayal that it revealed, the last part of the book felt like a bit of a mess.

I am going to be very interested to learn how Manannan's oathbreaking will turn out - the shide will certainly react very poorly to it, I'm thinking...

Plenty of Action

This is the third book featuring half-fae, Vince Whelan, and his fight against an ancient trickster god, Abarta. Now, in addition to Abarta, Vince has incurred the wrath of a powerful vampire. As these books proceed, Vince's character is evolving, and brief glimpses of his past are revealed. Two strong female characters return: Saoirse, a police captain and Vince's former boss; and, Odette, a powerful witch and fighter.

The third in the series and the story just keeps winding higher and higher. I love the characters and the world building is just phenomenal. I started this book in the afternoon and read through the evening and well into the night to finish it - the action was there and the intrigue and the bad guys suck! Desperately waiting for the 4th book.

These are so damn good

The Plot thickens, the crazy really comes out in this one as vampires and zombies enter the scene. This continues to be an amazing story in an outstanding series. If you've read this far then you already know how good this is. I'm off to pick up the next one and see just how bad this gets. These folks need to catch a break. Soooooo good!!!

I don't usually read post-apocalyptic stories. This series has me begging for more. The action is dizzying at times. Love the personal struggle of Vincent Whelan between his human side and his Sidhe side. Is there a compromise? Love the different species of fae and all of their differences. The next book should be really good as the climax is definitely in the air.

This is the first book in this series that I gave 5 stars. Each of the previous books seemed to drag on the middle, with Vincent plodding along through a bunch of nasty problems. He didn't really seem to think that the problems he dealt with were HIS problems. The attitude was, "Leave me alone, I've got enough issues of my own to deal with." He certainly was treated badly by the apocalypse, but who wasn't?

Although he starts out the same this time, Vincent finally starts taking this seriously. Th
