Playing with Fire

Urban Fantasy in its Truest Form
“Playing with Fire” is Urban Fantasy in the true sense of the word, without the romantic entanglements that a lot of UF books are bogged down with these days. It is a fast paced crime novel with an elemental twist of magic that keeps the reader on the edge of his/her seat.
The characters are complex and diverse, and I found the interactions between them both entertaining and intriguing. My personal favorite was the cool and aloof Stone Anders. His relationship with the enigmatic Renee Devereaux, and the way he juggled the often challenging personalities of the rest of the team, left no doubt that when there was a con to pull, a heist to execute, Stone Anders was the man for the job.
Overall, a fantastic first book for this up and coming writing duo, with all of the elements required for an enjoyable read. I’m looking forward to reading “Fly By Night,” and the rest of the series.
