Remember what I said about saving the world? Yeah, apparently the third time is the charm. Turns out our little plan to stop the apocalypse left the gate open for some bastards straight out of HP Lovecraft. Now they've come on through to try to turn the planet into an all you can eat buffet. That's not exactly my jam, so if I want to go on living here, I'll need to find a way to stop them. My name is Frank Butcher, and one way or another, I'm putting an end to this once and for all.

"I believe I understand your mad ramblings, Frank Butcher
The third and final part of this action packed, and packed some more, instalment of Cipriano and Garner's Clans of Shadow series, featuring fast talking Frank Butcher, the man with, literally, a heart of gold.
This crazy, irreverent story of defiance in the face and teeth of impossible madness is tremendous fun. Joe has Max. His mother, Gabby, wants him back, so Frank does, too. To find him they will have to take on the universe, God's and all.
Written in the first person from Butcher's point of view, Joe Hempel is Frank, his narration carrying the story onwards, upwards and through the epic battle with disarming humour and occasional un-Frank like modesty. It is such a pleasure to listen to Me.Hempel's reading that the story almost becomes irrelevant. Almost. But this story also grabs the visual cortex of the reader's brain as, "tattered, torn, bleeding - but still standing," the friends fight fiends of inter-dimensional horror at the gates of heaven itself. And, as always, "the clock was ticking."
A stunningly explosive ending to this melding of myth and fantasy. My thanks to the rights holder who freely gifted me my copy of Fists of Iron, via Audiobook Boom. Although the trilogy is here concluded, there is still room in the universe for a further Frank Butcher story to emerge. This reader, for one, would be very glad to see it.
