I love my fantasy stuff, especially werewolf related stories. Not crap like Twilight and asinine teeny-angst like that, but real, action filled werewolf stories. They're not the only creature in this by any means, but they're my favourite. Deadly Creatures is filled with action, detective mystery and otherworld goings on, that make it hard to put this down. I could see the Fogg stories being read around campfires in the dark, by torchlight under bedclothes, and quietly snuggled betwixt many a blanket on a freezing cold evening. They're that kind of story.The compact was made necessary by the tremendous immigration of supernaturals to New York City from elsewhere—especially Europe. All werewolves and vampires in the city came to Old Town when Fogg cast the spell that formed the compact—basically limiting those creatures (and their progeny) to Old Town. This ignores the fact that it is immigration which was helping to cause the problem and presumably would continue after the compact was made. New immigrants would not be bound by the compact but apparently this never occurs to anyone. It’s especially troubling that no one even considers this possibility when they start finding new werewolves operating in the city. This is a serious flaw in the plot. I know Dan has been working on novels as opposed to comics and graphic novels, but the nature of this story means I'd love to see the novel turned into a graphic novel, to compliment this one. He writes as if he's telling you the story himself, as if he were reading it to you personally next to a fire. I think the only thing I had missing, was marshmallows. Condition: Good. Item in good condition. Textbooks may not include supplemental items i.e. CDs, access codes etc.

Forgotten the title or the author of a book? Our BookSleuth is specially designed for you. Visit BookSleuth I have a confession to make, and it's one where I admit I broke my cardinal rule of book reading. I HATE eBooks, Kindle and whathaveyou, mainly because they are destroying actual books. People don't seem to want to hold a book in their hands anymore, but I do. It's one of my things. I NEED the book. I will go for audiobooks if they're read by the author, because they've been around for so long, and they're another source of reading for the blind, alongside Braille. However, for this? I caved, because I love Dan's writing.Condition: Very Good. Ships from the UK. Former library book; may include library markings. Used book that is in excellent condition. May show signs of wear or have minor defects.

I love a good whodunit and when you in the occult, it just made it all the more fun to read! As a first book in a series, it did a wonderful job of introducing the characters but leaving just enough that you want to read the rest of the series to learn more about them. I need to know more about Lucius and Ariel. So, not only are the characters absolutely smashing, but so is the story itself. It pulled me in and kept me reading right to the end.
Jimmy Doyle is an honorable man who took a bullet for his country. On his return home to 1950s New York City to become a private detective, he accepts a position with Lucius Fogg, a preeminent occultist. Fogg dabbles in solving macabre crimes, and as his legman, Doyle is thrust deep into the world of the supernatural. He often has to face danger alone, for Fogg never, ever steps outside of his home.
