Présentation de l'éditeur

New York Times bestselling author SM Reine presents a new series for fans of The Dresden Files and The Iron Druid Chronicles...
 
A brutal murder.
There are scratches on Cèsar Hawke's arms, a discharged Glock on his coffee table, and a dead woman in his bathtub. Yeah, maybe he brought the waitress home for some fun -- he was too drunk to remember it -- but he knows for a fact that he didn't kill her. He's an agent with the Office of Preternatural Affairs. He doesn't hurt people. He saves them.

The cops disagree. Now Cèsar is running.

The search for a shaman.
Isobel Stonecrow speaks with the dead...for the right price. She brings closure to the bereaved and heals broken hearts. But when she resurrects someone for the wrong client, she ends up on the OPA's most wanted list.

One risky solution.
Tracking down Isobel is the last case assigned to Cèsar before he bolts. If he finds her, he can prove that he didn't kill that waitress. He can clear his name, get his job back, and bring justice to the victim.

She's just one witch. Cèsar has bagged a dozen witches before.

How hard can one more be?

Par Evampire - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
The first novel in the Preternatural Affairs series is an intriguing and action packed urban fantasy.

An agent with Office of Preternatural Affairs, Cesar Hawke finds himself on the wrong side of the law when he wakes up with a hangover, scratches on his arm, a discharged Glock on his coffee table and dead body in his bathtub. On the run and searching for a shaman, he finds Isobel Stonecrow who is now on the OPA’s most wanted list for resurrecting someone for the wrong client. With her, he can clear his name, get his job back and get justice for the victim, really how hard could it be?

This fast paced plot keeps the reader on the edge of their seats with lots of action, suspense and a magic spell or two. The author brings the story to life with vivid images, great dialogue and strong compelling characters that the reader can easily relate to. Lots of fantastic supporting characters and a story that keeps the reader engaged from beginning to end.

There isn’t any romance just a little flirting here and there and some sexual innuendo and talk involving incubi. The story focuses on Cesar dodging the law and bad guys while trying to clear his name. The author spices things up by keeping not only the reader guessing, but Cesar as well as his not sure who can be trusted.

The author has created a fantastic urban fantasy world involving magic and demons with some surprising twists that the reader doesn’t see coming. Once started, it’s impossible to put the book down until the very last word is read. Oh and did I mention there is a few ghosts involved as well?

I really enjoyed this book with its great characters and intriguing plot. I really enjoyed the fact that I wasn’t sure who the culprit was until the end and I am looking forward to reading more cases involving the Office of Preternatural Affairs.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 An Enjoyable but Somewhat Lacking Story 9 mai 2014
Par TKnite - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
I found this book enjoyable but a bit of a letdown.

First off, the plot got increasingly convoluted as time went on. It started off as the simple “I’ve been framed for murder” plot, but it became harder and harder to follow as the story progressed. There was too much flip-flopping on which characters were allies and not, and whether or not something had actually happened, and…there were places I got lost and couldn’t figure out for the life of me what I supposed to think about a certain event.

Secondly, I didn’t like how the story drops me into the middle of a complex setting without giving me time to adjust. I didn’t really feel anything for most of the characters because the story drops us right into the middle of Cesar’s issues with zero opportunity to learn about his life. He says certain characters should mean certain things — friends, bosses, coworkers, etc. — but I didn’t actually feel any connections to them because I had no opportunity to meet them.

The intermittent appearances of most of the characters didn’t help. The book would let me start to get to know a character, and then Cesar would leave that character’s company, and the next time we came around to that character, Cesar would be looking at him/her in a different light from before, and then I wouldn’t know what to think. It was kind of irritating. I couldn’t get an accurate read on anybody. I didn’t who I was supposed to care about.

Third, I found the pacing a bit wonky at times. It gets way too fast at some points, and that certainly didn’t lend to my understanding of the frankly confusing plot.

Fourth (and finally), Cesar could not stop talking about how hot and sexy the women around him were. Yes, every woman was super sexy and gorgeous and apparently attracted to Cesar. God, I hate it when it authors do that. The protagonist is on the freaking run after being framed for murder, and yet, of course he stops to spend a copious amount of time thinking about how nice the boobs and butts of all the female characters are. Not to mention the gratuitous scantily-clad women scenes. Really?

I mean, if there was a single female character that Cesar liked who came off as sexy? Fine. Cool. But every single one?

Anyway, besides all of those things mentioned above, this was a fairly enjoyable story. There was plenty of action and a lot of good world building (albeit too much of it was crammed into fast-paced scenes). Cesar, despite his shortcomings, was a fun character to follow with a funny personality. The writing was, overall, pretty good. Snappy. Sarcastic. The kind of narration I generally enjoy.

This was a quick and easy read (it’s pretty short), but it had a few flaws that ticked me off.

Witch Hunt

When Cesar Hawke decides to have a bad week, he doesn't scrimp on the bad. He wakes up with a waitress that he has been lusting after and finally took home the night before,dead in his bathtub. He drank so much Tequila the previous night, that he can't remember anything that happened. All he knows for sure is that he isn't the one that killed her, he's not that kind of a guy. He knows he needs to call his partner at the Office of Preternatural Affairs to come and help him figure everything out, but before she can get there the LAPD shows up. He is being royally set up.

After a brief stint in jail, Cesar finally figures out that everyone believes he did it and if he wants to find the real killer he will need to investigate this case himself. So he breaks out of jail and begins to uncover
more secrets and office corruption than he ever wanted to know. But what he doesn't find is the answer to who did it, and why they set him up.

Enter Isobel Stonecrow, she is a witch who is said to be able to raise the dead. Before his world started to self destruct, he was tasked with finding the witch and bringing her in for trial. But Cesar thought that if Isobel really could raise and talk to the dead, maybe they could raise Isobel and they could find out who really killed Erin and framed him.

Join Cesar and Isobel as they search for answers, neither knows who they can trust and why they are being set up. All they know is that they must try and solve this murder before they move up on the killers "to do" list.

I really enjoyed this book, it is the beginning of a great new series. It has everything we want in a book, sexy secret agents who have big guns and know how to use them. Download this book and enjoy the ride, you will be glad you did.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Great idea, execution didn't work for me 28 janvier 2014
Par A. Ostrow - Publié sur Amazon.com

**I received a copy in exchange for an unbiased and honest review.**

Review: 2 stars
General: From the cover to the blurb this book looked like it was going to have it all. I couldn't wait to tear into it when I got the approval. Unfortunately, I did not feel the book delivered any of the standards and hopes I had for it and I had a hard time finishing it. The plot overall was interesting. It moved along well, had strong descriptions and the characters felt realistic enough. I felt the elements of magic as well as the idea of a separate section of the FBI was extremely well written/entertaining. The craft seemed to be approached from a very realistic angle and with great respect. I can absolutely appreciate that as some authors make it nothing more than a wave of a hand and I loved that this had real roots.

However I had no connection to the characters or the plot. I'm not certain if it was the first person narration or not but Cesar annoyed me to know end. He was crass and reminded me of an oversized Frat boy. I did love that it was male witch as so many authors shy away from that, but his personality overall grated on my nerves to no end. I couldn't form a connection to him and just kept pushing through hoping I would. Isobel was a lot stronger for me than Cesar but didn't have any draw for my attention or concern either. I felt they had a decent chemistry but nothing that rocked the house down or what I would have expected, but this was not primarily a romance- my desire for that came from the way Cesar seemed to praise himself in the first few pages. On that note- I had no idea I was with a male until we discussed knowing a woman's body I believe 4-6 pages in and that annoyed me as I feel like not being clear with a reader leads to an automatic disconnect and may have lead to my overall indifference when I had begun the novel with such high hopes.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A fresh idea in the paranormal world 17 février 2014
Par SerenityCssH - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
Cesar Hawke is a paper pushing witch. He works for a shadowy government organization which deals in the paranormal and while he is instrumental in solving cases, he is by no means on the front lines in a way which puts his butt on the line. Until one drunk night. A night which is to forever change his life of a day at the office, cracking jokes with Suzy his officemate and coming home to his Firefly DVDs. A murder in his apartment leads him to seek out a woman he was looking for anyway and this woman, Isobel, who has the power to talk to the dead leads him down paths he never really gave a thought to.

SM Reine's newest series is fresh and fun. A different type of protagonist is created. Not only is he reluctant, he is nerdy. More at home in Fantasy tv than in paranormal life, even though he and his brother are witches, Cesar Hawke is only buff thanks to magic potions. And while he is an attractive man, his muscles are potion made and his personality is not one to seek and destroy. Where his partner Suzy is tough and able, he is a bit more of the quake in the knees at the realities of a life thrust into the action hero versus the cubicle occupier. His journey is a fun ride and it is good to see that while he grows, he doesn't change all that radically from his original self. A good read for lovers of reality meets paranormal and also those who enjoy SM Reine as an author.
