E–pub/Kindle [Dead Things] Ú Stephen Blackmoore


M others since that s a realistic result Necromancy may be a powerful pull for the character but the world of the dead means the character has to live with the dark stuff on a daily basis and there s no way he can stay untouched or untainted Half with the dead makes it hard to stay long with the living in a normal or healthy relationship and running from people and finding it easier to avoid entanglement seems to be a natural trait for Eric for good reasonThere s a clever idea from the author to bring the legend of a death goddess Santa Muerte the Patron Saint of the Narcos Drug Traffickers on the Mexican Border to life in the series I hadn t heard of her before so this added an interesting texture to an already dark and multi layered bookIt s not hard to stay fascinated by the twisted paranormal streets in this one and action scenes that make you wonder who is betraying who and what will happen next eep readers guessing It was a little annoying how injured Eric gets every time he turns around how he eeps walking around without fainting of a concussion is stretching it at times Overall it s a well paced and structured story although sometimes the feel of it gets a little sedate and doesn t make it the fastest read The ending is a neat twist that ties him into a supernatural creature that gives ammunition for weird future storiesIt s violent and gritty there s a few humorous lines laced with sarcasm to give the character convincing life but this one is one for the dark seekers who enjoy Urban Fantasy with seedy structures and disturbing situations that offer little hope Not really my cup of tea but entertaining A dark noir about a necromancer and the wake of destruction he leaves in his wake Dead Things is serious magic noir The name of this book tells it all This book is about a man surrounded by dead and the conseuences it has on his life and his relationships with the living The narrative is very cynical with a main character who has a foul mouth and a dark point of view Of course anyone who has his necromantic abilities might tend to lose his faith in humanity and everything else Despite that fact I did like this book for the most part Blackmoore lost me some near the end though It was too abrupt and I didn t completely like the choice he made with the story The end does make sense to some extent and if this is a series it will be interesting to see how Eric gets himself out of the mess he is currently in as of the end of this bookI don t like to compare but for male lead UF readers you could think of Eric as the darker counterpart to characters like Dresden and O Sullivan probably like Connor Gray than the former His gifts are part of him and they taint his life in many ways But in the case of Eric his choices continue to alienate him from those who live and want connection with him He fears tainting them or destroying them but by walking away he endangers them even Kind of a vicious cycle and a bound to bring on the existential crisis or dark night of the soul The imagery is what got me with this story The world building is suitably and necessarily dark for a story about a necromancer His vantage point of life on the highways and backroads of America seeing all the ghosts who either wander or who are anchored to their place of dying In some ways a #warrior for the light but one who exists in the twilight #for the light but one who exists in the twilight and Eric and deals with many so called deities and has Little Respect For Them Unfortunately He Makes A Deal With respect for them Unfortunately he makes a deal with and will have to pay the piper very dearly I hadn t ever heard of Santa Muerte the Patron Saint of the Narcos Drug Traffickers on the Mexican Border A death goddess who started out in the Aztec pantheon but found her way into the Narco influenced border culture where she has plenty of followers Blackmoore brings this mythology to vivid but disturbing life A distinctive turn in urban fantasy that fits this very noir read I can t say Dead Things is for everyone This is one is uite violent and ind of depressing in some ways Lots of swear words and a great deal of irreverence on display along with moments that border on being nauseating for the sueamish Eric s choices aren t always admirable but I did feel for him He remains a sympathetic character despite his flaws People around him tend to get hurt and that s hard for me to read especially since I can t 100% place that blame on his shoulders I felt his loneliness and isolation his front of apathy that doesn t uite hide a fear of being the screw up that no can love respect or stand up for I wish his actions didn t turn this into a self fulfilling prophecy I want to continue this series to see what happens next to Eric and to hope that he turns things around and stops walking away from life and deeper into the world of the dead while there is still some part of him that has a connection to the livingOverall rating 3550 stars Have you guys ever had one of those books that really didn t want to like This book annoyed me for several reasons but I still really enjoyed it Here are my annoyances 1 Dresden Clone2 The word fuck is used 182 times in 256 pages I ve been Politik Luar Negeri Indonesia Di Tengah Pusaran Politik Domestik known to use the fucking word I even thought of writing this fucking review that way But fuck Who the fuck wants to read that shit3 This guy got his assicked way too many times with way too little downtime wait that s the Dresden Clone thi. Killed the night he left town Maybe it’s the patron saint of violent death herself Santa Muerte who’s taken an unusually Unleashed (Devil's Reach Book 3) keen interest in himCarter’s going to find out who did it and he’s going to make them payAs long as they don’till him first. Dead Things35 to 4 starsSo this turned out to be a pretty entertaining start to a new series It features Eric Carter a mage whose specialty is the necromantic arts The story L'art d'aimer kicks off with a pretty gruesome first chapter and things only escalate from there Eric fled Los Angeles fifteen years ago for reasons that become apparent not long into the story and has spent most of that time as a sort of nomadic supernatural hitman taking down bad people andor the bad ghosts they leave behind Though he s not sueamish about the methods he uses he also doesn t seem particularly fond of them In other words he s your basic good guy wrapped up in a hard outer shellWhen news of his younger sister s brutal and I do mean brutal murder reaches him Eric decides to head back to LA to make someone pay for it Can you ever really go home again In Eric s case the answer may be no In addition to finding the city itself much changed after a decade and a half of being away he also finds his old friends have moved on without him And there s than a little lingering anger and resentment over his abandonment of them Eric s investigation into the identity of his sister s murderer soon puts him in the crosshairs of some very dangerous people from his past As if that wasn t bad enough it seems that he s also garnered the unwanted attention of Santa Muerte Death herself who wants to recruit him to her side So bottom line Eric has his hands full There is lots of violence some grisly details and lots of ghosts most of whom are NOT happyThe story was pretty fast paced and it s utilitarian writing style lent itself well to creating a noir ish atmosphere Eric is definitely nonight in shining white armor He s been too long on his own to be very good at making connections with living people it seems He can be an ass to the very people that are trying to care about him That said there is still something very appealing about him and I think anyone who enjoys the Alex Verus series might also get a Collins French with Paul Noble - Learn French the Natural Way, Part 3 kick out of this one 35There are so many things I like in this book I don tnow where to start True there are some I don t but it s still a good storyThe main character is an urban fantasy hero or anti hero if you like done right A warning though he does things that those who got used to last moment solutions that help the hero avoid ugly or distasteful actions trope might find a bit hard to accept Eric Carter doesn t get off easy only because he is the main character After he gets back to LA to find his sister s murderer he is forced to do a lot of things that a usual hero never does Guess what It suits him and the story perfectly Besides after the introduction you d expect nothing less from him The plot is pretty good a powerful necromancer trying to find his sister s murderer while fighting against his past enemies and dealing with the nowledge of what happened after he left fifteen years ago Eric Carter is the reason I like this book I never got attached to other characters That brings me to his ex The great thing is Vivian Is Not Someone Who Needs Saving is not someone who needs saving is capable and smart Still I have a feeling that I should like her I didn t Throughout the book I ept wondering whether I like Carter that much or the rest of the characters are that annoying and unlikeable I still don t have the answer to thatI wish the moment when he sees himself in the car mirror near the end moment when he sees himself in the car mirror near the end a bit later in the book something a ghost said earlier in the book gave everything away I had to read the whole confrontation My Husbands Under Here Somewhere knowing whoilled the sisterOverall an enjoyable dark urban fantasy I just hope Carter stays as anti as he can get away with in the future books Disclaimer In reading this book I recommend lots of salty buttery popcorn you are going to need itI loved this book for all its faults I am not sure if it was what the author was going for but for me it was a cheesy horror flick The main character is that heroine you love to hate the one who you scream at to not go down that dark alley the basement are you crazy and you stupid bitch why are you leaving the group to go it aloneEric Carter has been running from his past for fifteen years taking on jobs Apiculture et dprdateurs des produits de la ruche killing monsters for money Well his past is about to catch up with him something or someone hasilled his sister slowly and painfully to bring him back homeWith a parting warning from some voodoo gods to be careful who you trust he is heading back to California Now this is where the fun starts get the popcorn ready cause here comes the stupidThrough out the rest of the book Eric becomes Too Stupid To Live which for me was oh so fun to watchCase in point Eric you are really going to go into that abandoned warehouse by yourself tell me why you think that is a good idea Though it was a good idea from the author cause now you are stuck you have to eep reading until you see how he gets out #And To See What The #to see what the stupid thing he is going to doI can t wait for the next book the ending was a lot of stupid I want to see how he gets out of the mess me made I see dead people Well I don t not really although I do regularly encounter the dying But I was curious to see how a urban fantasy would handle the idea of death when I saw this book about a necromancer and what ind of operating system an author might conceive of for the spiritual world This particular world still seems like it could use a little fle. Necromancer is such an ugly word but it's a title Eric Carter is stuck withHe sees ghosts talks to the dead He’s turned it into a lucrative career putting troublesome spirits to rest sometimes taking on even dangerous things For a fee of courseWhen he lef. Shing out groan but it passed the litmus test of entertaining a palate cleanser between substantial reads It s a streamlined noir mystery where the investigator Eric Carter is a necromancer oh and technically an assassin as he Deeds of John and Manuel Comnenus kills things or people for hireThe opening chapter is a zinger a fast episode that must have been perfect to workshop Carter has been chasing an undead man spirit around the southern US trying to stop an ongoingilling spree Finally corners the spirit in a bar resulting in a dramatic confrontation It s a great lead in to the book priming the reader for understanding the powers Carter wields and whetting the appetite through the following expositionary chapters When an old friend calls Carter to tell him his younger sister has been murdered Carter s pulled back to LA a town full of uestions and contacts he left decades agoStrip away the ghosts and you have a basic noir revenge plot with complications from the never darken my town again trope There s a red herring or two regarding possible double crosses But that s not necessarily bad just a note for genre readers The necromancy adds an interesting angle allowing Carter access to a certain group of informants and certain problem solving skills but it s involved enough and a consistent enough inclusion to place it solidly in the UF worldIt was entertaining but I can see where there are issues It does feel Dresden ish in many ways power levels male centric with lingering ex issues somewhat lacking in actual investigative skills although far entertaining than the earliest couple of Dresden books Although Carter talks as is if he is comfortable Comment Devenir Mannequin killing its worth noting that he doesn t usually do it unless he has to World building feels like it has a little ways to go though Carter works with the dead and their spirits I m still not entirely clear on the theology Haunts are locked in place some spirits are Wanders all eventually lose their memories whether it s a few days or a thousand years The ending was a tad annoying particularly with evidence of Carter s stupidity and the I m going to stay to protect resolution Despite that it was entertaining enough for me that I ll check out the next to see where Blackmoore takes itThree stars edging to two and a half for the forgetability of it 375 stars rounded upFor the first story in a series I mostly loved it But I did have nigglesOkay the good part first Just like my friend Expy I loved how Eric embraced his dark power I was refreshing to see the hero who didn t hesitate toill the bad guys like what he did with the cab driver and didn t went back and forth on uestioning the morality of it Those people dead or alive that he Kuli Kontrak killed was the bad guys and Eric got the job done Period The villains were vicious and insane and powerful The action was uite intense And the book was uite fast pacedAnd the not so good partsThis was my personal issue with urban fantasyparanormal books I start to really dislike the martyrdom trope where the hero or heroine think that the weight of the world is on their shoulder and they need toill the villains alone I always prefer when they gather their wits check out their resources and work with their friends to ill the enemies You now like The Avengers I mean even Batman needs Robin Oops okay I am getting side tracked here needs Robin Oops okay I am getting side tracked here you now what I meant yes Personally I thought that view spoilerEric s mentality to work alone including when he needed to kill Boudreau because he thought it was his responsibility was his Boudreau because he thought it was his responsibility was his was what made him fall into Santa Muerte s trap in the first place Then in the end he ept the secret about Muerte s threat to Vivian and he let Vivian hated him because again This is my burden alone BLAH He should ve explained things to Vivian Even if Vivian didn t want to embrace Eric s darkness hide spoiler What luck Dead Things was pretty much everything I could ever want in an Urban Fantasy The hero Basic Anatomy and Physiology of the Human Body kicked ass the pacing was fast and the story was devoid of cliches the ones that annoy me anyway the heroEric Carter was my ideal Urban Fantasy hero He embraced his power and even better he didn t hesitateilling bad guys with it With great power comes great responsibility to ick ass and make them stay down permanentlyI loved how he owned up to his bad decisions and person Great Now I ve got a crazy death goddess making googly

unconventional and haunting way they can consume him if he gets trapped with them in his world and stays as a valuable supernatural because his power has been amplified in comparison to other talents Being a rare necromancer gives him plenty of paranormal street cred and power punch While he doesn t care about getting his hands dirty when he needs to and doesn t blink an eye if a ill is reuired
