——The Dragon rubs his grey scaled belly and considers his next meal. The book Days Gone Bad an urban fantasy written by Eric Asher lies upside-down near his cooking pots and he asks himself aloud, “should I read it …or eat it?”——
Let’s chew on the story a bit. Damian Vesik is an urban necromancer. That’s right…an enigma who manages a magic shop called Death’s Door smack dab in the middle of old town. The plot commands a panoply of secondary characters, a vampire sister, several fairies and even magical cu sith puppies, lacking nothing in tasty mythical creatures.
The story shifts from problems concerning the necromancer’s sister when his mentor, Zola, returns from a long absence. There is evil afoot and it will take necromancers to fix the world’s troubles. However Damian is just a beginner at the craft…
An old ally is conjuring zombies and playing with ancient relics…putting the very essence of life at risk.
——–Cooking pros and cons:
- There is abundance of humor mixed into the story.
- Damian is a junior necromancer and so makes mistakes…which makes him way more believable.
- There are fairies that live in a clock and grow to gigantic proportions when angered.
- The plot moves along at a good pace.
- The prose is very readable.
- The story line keeps the reader attracted throughout the book.
- There are no dragons in the story….
- Chimichangas don’t reheat well with dragon fire.
