If you have been reading my reviews for any amount of time then you know that I swoon for eye catching covers and Titanshade’s cover is exactly the kind of cover to grab my interest. The story itself was such a clever piece of fiction that I could not set this book down once I started reading it. The setting for Titanshade was a gritty and seedy isolated metropolis with characters who are all just trying to get by. There are also those who have no problem stepping on the backs of others just to get their agenda met. Detective Carter is an honest man who had been dealt many blows in his career but none worse than the blow he had unexpectedly dealt himself.

A high-profile murder had taken place and it was all personal on deck for this one because it was a savage crime that was mired with political implications. This was one crime that Carter would love to have distanced himself from but the powers that be would not entertain that idea. Instead, Carter was assigned a Mollenkampi partner that Carter could have done without. He was used to working alone and it was how he preferred it. With implications for the murder reaching a little too close to home Carter was going to have to push all his street knowledge and cred to the breaking point in order to solve the crime that had left everyone aghast at the brutality of it.

I loved reading this fantasy noir! Titanshade was a wonderful blend of magical realism, police procedural, and thriller!! It was non-stop entertainment but also managed to grab my emotions. Carter was a complex character who was a hardened detective with a lifetime of regrets but always tried to do what he felt was right. The pacing of this story was tight, fast, and will grab your interest and not let go until the end! The dialogue in this story is exactly what you would expect from a police drama and was quite clever in its delivery. Titanshade was an exemplary piece of fiction that has me very excited to read more from this debut author!!

This review is based on a complimentary book I received from NetGalley. It is an honest and voluntary review. The complimentary receipt of it in no way affected my review or rating. ( )
