Buy the book: Amazon|Smashwords


Vincent Corinthos leads a triple life. As a secret agent, he handles paranormal threats; as a god, he protects his followers from evil forces; as a stock clerk, he keeps the back room of an antique store tidy.

When one of his fellow agents goes missing, Vincent begins with the usual suspects. His investigation takes him to vampire lairs, golem laboratories, and the realm of the fae. Along the way he squares off against genetically modified gremlins, virus-spawned zombies and a horseman of the Apocalypse.

But it's only when he infiltrates a private medical lab that he realizes just how big of a threat he's facing, and even being a god might not be enough of an edge...

My thoughts:

I have to say I was impressed with this one. It was a new take to Urban Fantasy which I thoroughly enjoyed!

The characters were definitely different. There were plenty of creatures in the book that I've come across before but not often but there were also some completely new ones too. I won't tell to save ruining the story but it was definitely refreshing to read about something other than just werewolves and vampires!

I loved the writing too. It was cleverly crafted to keep me interested and there is no doubt room for a sequel which I'm excited for already!

All in all this was an impressive read that I really enjoyed and I do definitely recommend it!

Make sure to check out the rest of the tour!
