Reading, for me, is entertainment and an escape from the real world. But it can also inform and stretch the boundaries of the life I live.
So far, this has been a lot of fun. I like the smartass attitude, the mix of mundane police procedural with the supernatural, and the fact that the author is revealing the rules/history of the supernatural world in dribs and drabs as the story develops. Plus, Harry Potter and Narnia references. Maybe others that I haven't caught, too.
Love the narrator's voice.
