This is the second in the Inspector Paris (aka Mr Parrots and Nipparis) series of murder, mayhem and magic by Andy Redsmith. Although I could see this was a good book, I was struggling to really get into it until at almost a third of the way in wham, I was totally immersed and loving it. Paris has become an unexpected hero and celebrity after previously seeing off a demon invasion with a team of normal and magical beings. The portal into the magical world is in the well heeled Didsbury district ...more

In this fun mystery series, a portal between the world of magic creatures and the human world has been discovered in a wealthy area of Manchester. A secret long known by the magical creatures, humans discovered it when an army of demons tried to invade in the previous episode. Eventually thwarted by DI Nick Paris, aided by the British army and a band of magical creatures, the demons have returned home and the residential area is now a heavily guarded military zone. After being feted in the magic ...more

I just love this series. Canelo had been kind to give me the first book and they were kind to give me this book as well. And I have to say I just loved this book. In my opinion this is even better than the first one. And all of my favourite characters are all there in the book again. The characters of Nick Paris (Mr Parrots, Nipparis), Bonetti, Cassandra, Eric, Tergil, Grarf, Malbus (my favourite, Gizza fag) and a few new additions with Dirk the dwarf who's aspiring to be a rapper and who's quit ...more

I fell in love with the first instalment in this series and I was looking forward to reading this one.
I had high expectations because the first one was sort of "I didn't know I needed this series in my life" surprise and I can say they were all met.
It was great to meet again the quirky cast of characters and follow them in this new adventure.
It was a lot of fun, engrossing and entertaining.
It's a sort of follow up to the previous book and I think and hope it leaves enough open points for a furt

Inspector Paris is back with the strange collection of friends and foes in this second of the great series set in Manchester.
We have ogres, warlocks, fairies, dwarves, elves, and the small stone child (read and see who I mean).
I thought that this book was not quite as original as book 1 as we had met all the characters before, but there were some excellent lines of text. eg 'What makes sense depends on how you look at it'; 'Persuasion, ..that's one way of describing Ug the Ogre dangling Orin ups

This is the second instalment in this series and although I haven’t read the first one, I still got hooked on it! A great combination of the real world and the magical one with its peculiar characters (elves, dwarves, ogres, crows, wizards, witches, etc). You will be amazed by how nowadays political views are treated in this book (post Brexit trade deal).

It is well written and as I said before… you can’t put it down, I strongly recommend it. Hope there will be more books to come!

Thanks to NetGal

A long time ago in a galaxy not that far away, Andy Redsmith was born. He grew up in Liverpool and Runcorn, went to university in Salford, and has lived in Manchester ever since. He says the people there are great, but we don’t talk about football.

He worked in the computing industry for long enough to remember ALGOL (a language that’s not quite as dead as Latin, but well on the way.) Over the year
