Less Camp and Chaos Than The FirstIt's only been a month since exiled sidhe Tuulois MacColewyn agreed to join the police department's newly reappointed Section Thirteen the section dedicated to investigating crimes by or against paranormals Though time with his new lover and partner NYPD Inspector Joss Vallimun is definitely one of the perks the workload is intense and resources are few Cole's life is becoming barely recognizableNot only is Section Thirteen horribly overworked and wretchedly understaffed with only Cole Vallimun and Cole's erstwhile best friend Detective James Corhagen to handle the caseload everyone else keeps fleeing in terror when slimy things rise up out of the sewers the cowards but the cases themselves are getting and disturbing Even for a sidhe who's seen done and snarked his way through as much as Cole hasThe burned and partially masticated bodies of several young boys have turned up in the morgue and Cole has to use his abilities to uestion the victims Disturbing as that is there is also the brutal slaying of a private school teacher by what appears to be a pack of fey wolves on Staten Island And they're not the only fey to be acting in a way that's against their nature either and they all have one thing in common a suspicious black collar somewhere on their body and tales of enslavement to a new lord and masterIt's a complicated dangerous stressful time to be the only full blooded sidhe cop in NYC Good thing he's prettySometimes it's the story sometimes it's the characters ideally it's a combination of both There are a myriad of different reasons that a book or a series of books appeals to me In this wacky but weirdly wonderful series it's the combination of Cole as a main character the utter charm and likability of several of the secondary and ancillary characters and the author's writing style that have made me a fanThe first book was campier than this one flamboyantly wicked and generally bizarre I embraced the flighty storyline ignored most of the camp and accepted the chaos in the writing because I adored the insouciant irrepressible irredeemable Cole He was a delight of a character He still is but this installment offers a slightly serious darker version of the sidheHis character intentionally or not actually seemed to perfectly reflect his situation and the tone of the book It was as if even the immortal Cole is feeling the strain of the amount of work Section Thirteen is dealing with and he's worn out enough to mute some of the natural incandescence of his personality Or maybe he's just relaxed now that he's having sex on a regular basis thanks to the big and brawny JossWhatever it is I liked this version of Cole very much He's still a wellspring of sarcasm and sardonic humor but he's not uite as persistent to the point of annoyance with Corhagen who I still avidly dislike and his actions in this book evidence a accurate reflection of his emotional investment in the people he cares about than they did in the first book All very good thingsThe storyline was a bit complex than that of the first book yet ironically easier to follow There seemed to be going on as far as sources of external conflict and while I think the plot lacked a little of the emotional intensity that the first one had I also think it was better constructed overall Plot points and story elements were added as the book progressed all building on a solid foundation and it provided an increasing level of danger and intensity throughout the read as well as bulking up the narrative with depth and dimensionThis still isn't a book that's flawless in concept and construction There is still a good dose of camp and there are scenes and story threads that get a bit chaotic The humor is certainly very subjective and I wouldn't recommend it for romance only fans There is a thin thread of romance in this book as Cole and Joss seem to be building an actual relationship as opposed to just occasionally having hot very hot sex but this isn't at all a romance series and that thread stays ancillary to the plot driven story elementsI just think this book and this series is a hell of a fun read In fact I have such a good time when I'm reading and I love Cole's character so much that I get swept up in what's happening and forget to think about the book critically Maybe that makes me a bad reviewer All I know for sure is that it makes me a happy reader Disclosure An ARC of this book was provided to me by Dreamspinner Press via NetGalley This rating review and all included thoughts and comments are my ownReviewed for One Good Book Deserves Another

To solve every supernatural crime in New York including a series of grisly child murders and evidence that local fey are being enslaved When Vallimun is gravely injured just as the investigation reaches a fever pitch while a snowstorm blankets the city Cole will need all the help he can get to have any hope of salvaging this month at all. Three Crow Press Review by OCD ReaderAfter the events of “The Thirteenth Child” Cole our sidhe hero Cole has his very own sithen to call home and he’s now a cop a member of Section Thirteen the unit of the NYPD that investigates the unexplainable crimes involving fae and other supernatural beings He is also in a new relationship with the inspector Joss Vallimun his bossA child murderer is on the loose and the Section Thirteen team is tirelessly working to stop whoever is responsible Then a teacher for a Staten Island private school is murdered and Cole is summoned to the scene of the crime This murder leads Cole to discover that he and his fellow fae are in great danger and it all seems to be circling around the school where that teacher had worked When Joss is injured in the line of duty facing down a rampaging ogre no less Cole has to keep the investigation going until the very end Because Joss is out of the action Cole needs to pull in reinforcements and we get three new interesting characters to learn about an ogre a ballsy policeman and a witch This is a terrific action packed follow up to “The Thirteenth Child” which has uite a few twists so get ready for a great ride There is a lot of chemistry between Cole and Joss and their developing relationship adds a new dimension only hinted at in the first book Cole though a warrior and not prone to much emotion is uite sweet with his new lover Though the two are so busy they don’t have too much down time together in this story As in the previous book the fusion of action suspense fantasy and romance works really well The mythology and backstory are filling in beautifully and O’Faolain is creating a rich tapestry to build on In this story the horror of the child murders is juxtaposed against the almost ridiculous reality of who is committing the killings along with the identity of the mastermind behind the Staten Island problems and why Ultimately the larger picture storyline isn’t fully resolved but that just means we get another book soon YaySo I am beginning to care about the characters and I really like the new ones introduced in this installment James wasn’t uite as much of a jerk as he was in the first book though he still has issues We haven’t seen his harridan of a wife yet which I am anxiously awaiting No Robyn this time though I heard she shows up again in the 4th book The Consort and Danu are showing some interest what is happening with Cole and I am excited to see where that all leads Cole is starting to thaw a bit for me He is a reserved character but he is showing emotion through his actions and what he does for those in need The only thing that continues to throw me for a loop are some of the word choices in the sex scenes as they cause me to snigger like a 10 year old boy telling sex jokes They tend to pull me from the scene uite effectively making it not so much sexy as jarring Oh well This was another fun urban fantasy from O’Faolain This twisty tale is both imaginative and well told I just wish the almost porno esue word choices especially in the first sex scene were smoothed over a little but that might just be me Also small point but the cover art doesn’t do the urban fantasy element any justice at all 35 stars

The Thirteenth Pillar Section Thirteen #2Seuel to The Thirteenth Child A Section Thirteen Story Tuulois MacColewyn’s simple life performing dirty jobs for fey hiding in New York City has died a uick death Consulting for the NYPD on a case involving child abductions losing a friend laying siege to a stronghold at the end of Broadway and being chased through a hospital by anima. 25 starsTo be honest I wish this book had come without the sex scenes because the basic plot wasn't bad And it's the plot that lifts it to just barely three stars To me the sex scenes particularly the first which is only 13 pages into the book are written like a bad porn movie with love nut used for the prostate shudder cocks drooling canals were savaged cum unloaded in the dark tunnel of an ass accompanied by exclamations like fucking the shit out of you and it's hotter inside of you than in this shower The romance aspect of the story seems to develop in fits and starts and again to be honest there isn't a great deal of romance either So what is good Um the whole Faerie scenario is not bad particularly as Cole seems to be developing new powersskills with background being provided about Cole as well as info on the role Cole plays in the human world If I could have the basic urban fantasy story without the romance attempt and the porn style sex I'd have enjoyed it a whole lot
