From his arrival at Nekropolis, Matt has found himself embroiled in disputes with the city’s vampire lords, shapeshifters, golems and other monstrosities.
Nothing has prepared him for the Dark War.”
This is the third book in the Matt Richter series by Waggoner. I really continue to enjoy this series and was sad to see that this was the last book released in this series (most likely because of Angry Robot publishing shutting down).
After solving a particularly strange case in an alternate dimension, Matt and Devona end up joining up with a new character named Shamika and trying to unravel the mystery behind a whole bunch of magic users who have gone missing.
This series continues to remind me a lot of Simon Green’s Nightside series. There are a lot of wacky and zany things in the Nekropolis and I continue to enjoy the creativity and unpredictability of it all.
Things were really picking up in this series and I was incredibly disappointed to find out that this was the last book released in the series. I just enjoy the quirkiness and humor so much in these books and would love to read more about this world and these characters
Overall this was a great continuation of the Matt Richter series. This series is a wonderful blend of mystery, urban fantasy, horror, and humor. I was very disappointed to see this was the last book in the series. I would definitely recommend to fans of Simon Green’s Nightside series.
