Publisher's Summary

Everson Croft here, professor of mythology and behind-the-scenes wizard.
Show me an amateur conjurer, and I'll stop him before he gets himself killed.
That's the idea, anyway. But New York City isn't what it used to be, and I don't mean the recent crash.
Amateur casters are calling up creatures they shouldn't be able to. And there's been a murder at the city's most hallowed cathedral, a message in blood on the victim's back the NYPD wants me to interpret, like yesterday.
Something tells me I'm in over my head. And that's not just Chinatown's newest mob boss, a scary-powerful vampire, or my possessed cat talking.
No matter how much magic I hurl, worse keeps chasing bad, and I'm amassing enemies like they're aluminum cans.
Did I mention the end of the world might be nigh?
Damn. Maybe I'm the amateur here.

An adequate member of the urban fantasy genre.

The book is fairly standard fare for the genre. The moniker of Prof Croft made me cringe for starters but that thankfully didn't reflect the tone of the book which was more mature. It was well written it's some good ideas but feels a bit hackneyed. That could be because it's a first book, and in many ways books like the first Dresden Files suffered the same way. However, it didn't really shine and didn't flesh out as well as it could have.

The narrator was fine. Just not enough oomph, and needed to emote a bit more especially through the spell casting!

Overall, an average book that won't disappoint but will soon fade into memory. I might try book 2 when I've run out of other books.

Finally, something similar to Dresden files

This series enters the select club of Dresden files and Alex Verus. I like that some of the elements are so familiar that there is no need for lenghty explanations. Fast paced, good narrator and good story.
