The Adepts: Gathering
The Adepts: Gathering by J.J.C. Marcoh is a fantastic book filled with intense emotions. Atticus Foster may appear a bit gruff and cold, but she's a deep and caring character far beyond what I was expecting. The lore in this book is interesting. The mythological entities are not as unreachable as you might find in other fantasy novels. These beings are presented as people. Not humans, of course, but people - powerful people. I like that this allows for the characters to interact with them on a more personal level.
I would highly recommend this book to anyone interested in other urban fantasy such as The Dresden Files or Sandman Slim. It is a good addition to the genre and I look forward to future books from this author.
