Description

February 14, 2013
Supernatural activity is on the rise, and yet humanity is blissfully unaware. Lonely demon hunter Atticus Foster meets a peculiar man in a bar one night, and together they start their work - a partnership to track, hunt, and kill the things that go bump in the night. But there are dark forces at play, and shadowy fingers woven into everything. The fabric of the reality they know is shredding. The darkness is sweeping in, and as Atticus and her partner gather more like them, they become aware that on the horizon, as it all comes falling down, there is something coming...

War.




Review
  
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.
