This is a perfect book for you to get out of your reading rut and to get back into your reading groove! It’s got everything you needed. Lots of action, a protagonist that tries to have a heart but doesn’t because he still ends up looking like the jackalope of the year.

Loved the book, and I’ll keep going with this series. If you’re into The Dresden Files, or Urban Fantasy with a jerk anti hero this is the book to read. It’s quick and fast paced if you’re fully immersed in the book as I was then this book will be finished in no time.

If you enjoy the Harry Dresden novels but wish they were grittier and a little less humorous, you'll probably enjoy Dead Things. Be forewarned: there seems to be a lot of "product placement" moment in the book. A lot. If this is a pet peeve, you may find it distracting.

An interesting take on urban fantasy. Carter is a solid character and I'm looking forward to more of this series.
