Hard boiled detective the Fae an interesting first bookWhen I ran across this title in my public library’s catalog I was intrigued Those of you who read my reviews regularly will know that I am a sucker for books that feature Fae characters I love them Plus I am an enormous fan of Raymond Chandler so this combo was irresistibleI enjoyed Marmell’s take on the Fae Mick Oberon yes he’s related to THAT Oberon has a penchant for milk cream when he’s needs something a bit stronger He doesn’t always ask for money to pay for his jobs—but he has an instinct for asking for something which later helps with a new problem He’s also extremely reluctant to head back Underhill for any reasonMarmell is obviously fully conversant with the whole hard boiled genre Mick is tough talking hard milk drinking and wise cracking He gets beat on and thumps others in return All the correct boxes are ticked It would be unfair to compare his writing to Chandler—very few can live up to those standards If I have a niggling annoyance it’s that I felt the Chicago gangland vocabulary was laid on awfully thick with a trowel reallyStill it’s a fun fantasy world and I will definitely continue on with the series Not however a series that I will want to own Your mileage may vary

The gumshoe in urban fantasy Its a magical partnership when done well Ari Marmell is trying to tap into the Dresden files fan base with his new elf gumshoe mystery and he almost gets it totally right Hot Lead Cold Iron is a good read with a great setting mafia and gangsters and some great villains but there were a couple of things that just annoyed me Mick Oberon is the gumshoe in uestion The setting is 1930s Chicago a world full of gangsters Obernon an elf prince has left his aes sidhe world and relocated to the human world He works as a private detective using his wand to manipulate luck and taking on jobs that interest him and earning knickknacks Apparently Oberon has a magical sense that the objects can be useful But in this entire novel not one of those so called useful knickknacks are useful So what gives Instead Obernon needs cash money to help a friend so takes a case to find out what happened to the daughter of a head member of the Outfit who was replaced by a changeling But its been sixteen years He must travel back to Elphame and the Chicago Otherworld and finds himself trading favors with the evil ueen Mob Again you just know this is a plot devise because even we neophyte human readers know you do not promise a future favor to an evil elf It turns out that the girl in uestion is back in ChicagoObernon will have to track down the gangsters daughter with the help of the gangsters in uestion The person who switched the changeling and human child will be a surprise and the reason for it a feud with gangsters from the old country is a little muchWhats to like in this new urban fantasy detective story the setting is top notch Marmell 1930s milieu is pitch perfect The gunfights mobsters coppers and other citizens of Chicago and Elphame are on target Obernon and his trusty Luchtaine Goodfello Model 1592 wand are a good combination There is sly humor good dialogue and a good plot but I just did not like the lead in to the story I did not like the bargain with ueen Mob and I am not sure the whole luck manipulation worksHowever I will be first on line to get the next book because there are just too many other good things in this magical detective mashup to skip
