Hard Spell is the first book in an urban fantasy series set in an open-world where humans are aware of the supernatural who live among them. The supes are now governed by the same laws as humans. Detective Stan Markowski and his partner, Karl Renfer, work in the Supernatural Crimes Investigations Unit where they investigate crimes committed by and/or against supes. Supes of all sorts are making their way to Scranton because of the ley lines found there. And, with them comes trouble.

The story is a nice mix of horror, humor, and noir. It reminded me a lot of Dragnet. Fans of buddy cop stories with a mix of supes will enjoy this series.

Thanks to NetGalley and Angry Robot Books, who provided this book to me in return for my honest review.
