3.5 stars. Another author/title to add to my "guilty pleasures" pile. Loads of fun to read, very much like the Dresden Files books in that sense, so fans of that series will feel right at home especially if you're looking for something slightly less dark and just a bit more humorous.

A few nitpicks though -- the cheese is strong with this one (some parts and lines are enough to make me cringe) with cliches littered all over the place. Stuff like the main character falls in love at first sight with the heroine, and then you find out she already has a boyfriend who just HAPPENS to be the handsome and arrogant douchebag who was giving our MC a hard time. There were lots of other similarly overdone plot points like that, but I will refrain from listing them lest I reveal a spoiler.

And if only the author would spend as much time developing his characters as he spends describing the details of guns and other weaponry...
