it was amazing

I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Nate Temple and his Freaks are back.

This time they are beset by Grimms – a group of people whose superpower is that they can sense when other people are magic users. They are an ancient race. They believe that all magic users are dangerous, evil, etc., and they have made it their mission to destroy them all. Years, or centuries, ago, one of Nate’s ancestors managed to lock them away in a void somewhere. The key to this place was the copy of the original edition of Grimm’s Fairy Tales that Nate bought some years back and hid in a secret vault below his now-destroyed bookstore, Plato’s Cave. Somehow this let a few of them loose, and they are on the rampage. They are looking for the book, and they are also bent on destroying Nate and all his friends. They have hired a lot of other magical beings, and they have the secret complicity of others. And strangely, for beings who are so convinced that all magic users are evil, they have discovered a way to steal the magic of those they have destroyed and use it themselves.

As you might expect, there is a lot of non-stop action throughout the book – everything from fights with vampires and various sorts of shifters to corporate hijinks.

In the middle of all this, Nate is trying to prepare to propose to his girlfriend, Indie. Pretty much every stage of his preparations is messed up by the ongoing fight with the Grimms.

I did like that the women in this book were treated better. Ashley, the CEO of Temple Industries and fiancée of Nate’s best friend, Gunther the werewolf, and Indie, Nate’s girlfriend, are more than just eye candy this time. One or the other of them is in on most of the action, and they are every bit as awesome fighters as their boyfriends and the magical creatures they are with. Although they do suffer for it.
