Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

Felix offers a darkly droll take on the circumstances of his world, which is just as familiar, intricate, and morally tangled as our own. Entertainment Weekly on Vicious Circle
[A] deftly crafted, can't-turn-the-page-fast-enough read. Kirkus (starred review) on Vicious Circle
A treat . . . Castor follows up his excellent debut with this even better sequel . . . Genre-bending at its best. Booklist (starred review) on Vicious Circle
Engrossing . . . perfect . . . an ingeniously multilayered tale. Publishers Weekly (starred review) on The Devil You Know
The author has mastered the challenge of incorporating the paranormal into a normal urban setting, and his refusal to pull punches makes this a harder hitting genre entry than many others. Publishers Weekly on Thicker Than Water
Carey transcends his comic roots in this quirky, dark and imaginative tale that compels readers to keep turning pages long after they should have gotten to sleep. Kirkus (starred review) on The Devil You Know
Fast-paced . . . riveting . . . everything a paranormal thriller fan could want. MonstersandCritics.com on Dead Men's Boots
The Felix Castor novels are splashed with color and texture, their characters are larger than life (or death), and the stories are, well . . . out of this world. Castor is a remarkably believable character... A wholly engaging blend of the detective and fantasy genres. Booklist on Dead Men's Boots
Like Humphrey Bogart meets John Constantine, Felix Castor makes for an enjoyably, untrustworthy guide through the undead-filled streets of London, as painted by Mike Carey . . . huge verve and energy . . . engaging and vivacious. SFX
Carey's unique and eminently readable style, with his excellent command of concise description and dialogue lends itself perfectly to the pacing of the book, one that we found ourselves wanting to re-read as soon as we finished it. SciFi Now
Every bit as good as Jim Butcher, Carey hits his stride. Publishers Weekly (starred review) on Dead Men's Boots
The Devil You Know is a spectacular novel, one of the best supernatural thrillers I've read in years. Douglas Preston, New York Times bestselling author of The Book of the Dead on The Devil You Know
"An imaginative spin on the hard-boiled detective . . . mixes horror and humor in a way that spells good omens for future Castor novels. Entertainment Weekly on The Devil You Know
Witty, sardonic . . . irresistible . . . leaves the readers breathless. Kirkus (starred review) on Dead Men's Boots
“An imaginative spin on the hard-boiled detective.” Entertainment Weekly, praise for the series
