Note: Strange Magic was given to me by the author as an Advance Release Copy in exchange for an honest review.
Yancy Lazarus is having a bad day: there’s a bullet lodged in his butt cheek, his face looks like the site of a demolition derby, and he’s been saran-wrapped to a banquet table.
Yancy is a bluesman, a rambler, a gambler, but not much more. Sure, he can do a little magic—maybe even more than just a little magic—but he knows enough to keep his head down and stay clear of freaky-deaky hoodoo like this business in LA. Somehow though, he’s been set up to take a real bad fall—the kind of very permanent fall that leaves a guy with a toe tag—J. A. Hunter
Rival L.A. gangs, a fanatic mage from India looking to trip Armageddon, and a small army of powerful demonic hyena-faced body snatchers collide to take the fun out of Yancy Lazarus’ day. Despite his penchant for smart-assed remarks, cholesterol-laden barbecue, smokes and dive bars, Yancy does have a sincere desire to stay alive. It’s just that some days are harder than others.Continue reading Book Review: Strange Magic–A Yancy Lazarus Tale
