and fantasy novels, be sure to check out this book when it officially hits bookstores and wherever books and ebooks on August 25, 2020 I love the Iron Druid series and jumped at the chance to get an ARC of Kevin Hearne s new series debut Ink Sigil from Net Galley I did enjoy it, but I hope the next one might have a littlepizzazz I was nervous about the thorough guide to dialect and pronunciation at the beginning of the book as I was already reading a dystopian book that is told in deteriorated English that was wearing on me Not the case here, it was easy to follow and pronounce in my head The characters are likable I love the Iron Druid series and jumped at the chance to get an ARC of Kevin Hearne s new series debut Ink Sigil from Net Galley I did enjoy it, but I hope the next one might

that was wearing on me Not the case here, it was easy to follow and pronounce in my head The characters are likable enough, the villains a little flat It was pleasant enough reading and moved quickly I d like to see something a little stronger for the second outing This is what happens when you give a frat boy a laptop and tell him to write a story Brawling leprechauns, swearing hobgoblins and a mute ink wizard oh my It took my a while to get into this story because while the action kinda started right at the beginning I just didn t care about any of it This had a great cast of characters and I am partial to Nadia The name Buck Foi was just annoying as hell and wholly immature and not as funny as I think the author wants it to be This was a fun read, This is what happens when you give a frat boy a laptop and tell him to write a story Brawling leprechauns, swearing hobgoblins and a mute ink wizard oh my It took my a while to get into this story because while the action kinda started right at the beginning I just didn t care about any of it This had a great cast of characters and I am partial to Nadia The name Buck Foi was just annoying as hell and wholly immature and not as funny as I think the author wants it to be This was a fun read, but frankly the mystery was sorely lacking Al didn t actually detect nor uncover anything He didn t make any grand discoveries All of his hints and clues were supplied by other people Saxon should get the big bonus for giving Al every single clue that he cobbled together, with a hat tip to Eli as well And the reason for all this run around was pretty thin too, but I guess everyone has to start somewhere There just wasn t enough in between the pages The story limps along and relies on the by play between Al and Buck a little too much I will say that I enjoyed the book and I will be looking into any others of the series, but the actual plot bogs them down Series Info Source I got this as an eGalley from NetGalley for review This is the first book in the new Ink Sigil series This series is set in the same world as the Iron Druid Chronicles but some time after that series.Story 5 5 I loved the idea of Sigil Agents and enjoyed being introduced to Al MacBharrais s world In addition to Al s fascinating day to day life there is an excellent mystery here that encompasses the strange deaths of many of his apprentices and a curse placed on Al him Series Info Source I got this as an eGalley from NetGalley for review This is the first book in the new Ink Sigil series This series is set in the same world as the Iron Druid Chronicles but some time after that series.Story 5 5 I loved the idea of Sigil Agents and enjoyed being introduced to Al MacBharrais s world In addition to Al s fascinating day to day life there is an excellent mystery here that encompasses the strange deaths of many of his apprentices and a curse placed on Al himself There is also acontained mystery involving fae trafficking, which Al s most recently deceased apprentice Gordie was involved in I love urban fantasies that have a contained mystery story that is solved in one volume but also have an overarching story that carries across multiple volumes.Characters 5 5 I was a bit skeptical that I would like and engage with an old man character but found myself pleasantly surprised I loved Al he is capable and humorous and has a lot of depth as a character I really enjoyed the hobgoblin he contracted and his bad ass battle goddess office manager, Nadia The characters in here are fun and interesting and just a hoot to read about I loved them all and they were incredibly well done We also have run ins with characters from the Iron Druid Chronicles and it was intriguing to see them from a different point of view.Setting 5 5 I loved the world of the Iron Druid Chronicles so it s no surprise that I continue to love this world Here we see this complex world of gods, goddesses, and different realities through a slightly different viewpointthat of a Sigil Agent This is an intricate and well thought world that I absolutely love Writing Style 5 5 This book is engaging, well paced, and very easy to read The writing flows seamlessly and I love how the mystery of Gordie s fae trafficking is blended seamlessly with the mystery around Al s curse and his constantly dying apprentices I always enjoy Hearne s writing style but feel like this book was evenpolished and well written than previous books in his Iron Druid Chronicles.My Summary 5 5 Overall I ended up absolutely adoring this book I think I like it even better than the Iron Druid Chronicles so far I approached this a bit tentatively but I shouldn t have I loved the characters, the mystery and the idea behind the sigil agents This was so much fun and so well put together, I can t wait to readbooks in this series *Download Book ⇟ Ink & Sigil ⇬ Al MacBharrais is both blessed and cursed He is blessed with an extraordinary white moustache, an appreciation for

And can he keep those around him from being hurt in the process I went into this novel without having read the Iron Druid novels, and as this is set in the same world I was afraid I wouldn t be able to follow, however the author does a phenomenal job of building the world and where the characters fit into it The characters themselves are all top notch and not a single page was wasted by following any of them The reason I give this a three star rating however is that the ending felt incomplete Sure, it s probably the beginning of a series, but I feel like first novels in a series fall into the trap of how can I wrap this up but also leave it open This story is definitely left open, but I feel like there was no climax to the story It just kept building wonderfully, sure but it didn t really lead anywhere This is one of those could this have been an introductory novella rather than a full on book but I struggle with my own feelings on that since the pages were still filled with fun and adventure.Overall, Ink Sigil is a strong beginning to a series, but I wish it would have had better closure when books are usually only published once a year per series I recommend this series for anyone 13 who loves fantasy and fae
