Thumbs up for Bigfootloose and Finn Fancy Free by Randy Henderson. Fantasy.
Finn Gramaraye and gang are back, and so are the wonderfully cheesy jokes. If you pick this up without having read the first book, you will be quite confused—in fact, even having read the last book, there were plot points referring back to it that I wish had been explained a little more. (Okay, a lot more.) But I like these characters and I love the wholehearted use of the Pacific Northwest setting, which comes across as a character in its own right. You should read these posthaste if you like snarky urban-ish fantasy: think early Harry Dresden, if Harry had a loving, albeit troubled, extended family, and if he were the sort of guy who would choose “dance-off” as his weapon of choice when challenged to a duel. Ah, Finn, I can’t wait to see what you get up to in book three….
I blinked against the yellow light. Arcana avoid using fluorescent lighting since discovering that it slowly leaches away both one’s magic and life energy. In fact, some prominent arcana are still trying to prove that both fluorescent lighting and cubicle—which box in and prevent the natural flow of energy—were introduced to our world as part of a Fey conspiracy.
I received this book free from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
