Gods, I can’t tell you how much I love this series! I probably have mentioned it a few times already in other reviews but the Garrett, P.I. series by Glen Cook is amazing! I don’t usually use the word ‘feels’, though I must admit it fits. The feels are heavy when it comes to this series, even when it’s just one moment.

This is the twelfth book of the series. Continue reading

Anyone who knows me, knows how much I love Glen Cook‘s The Black Company books and his witty voice and his gritty worlds. When I found out about his Garrett P.I. series, I didn’t quite know what to expect. I was thinking something along the lines of Urban Fantasy mixed with Sherlock Holmes (I’ve recently finished The Complete Sherlock Holmes collection and there ends my experience with detectives). But since I love Glen Cook’s work, I decided to give the first three books a try. Continue reading
