Politics Social Sciences Kindle eBooks @ Amazon.com. join a buddy read for the book It s a fantasy story set in a modern setting and as such had a lot of hurdles toump It did a really good ob of creating enough of a screen to allow you to suspend your disbeliefThe main character is Trevor Irwin who s immensely unlikeable on first introduction He s an arrogant misogynistic know it all and that s ust off the first page By the end of chapter one you could add cowardly and aggravating to his list of character traits The weird thing though is as he evolves as a person due to the events of the book he grows on you as a character I feel fairly confident that of I were to continue this series I would come to fully embrace TrevThe storyline is both entertaining and easy to read but a little too sarcastic for my tastes It also rubs me as vulgar at times but not in a way that adds an element to the story at times but not in a way that adds an element to the story like vulgarity for it s own sake The majority of the supporting characters felt shallow and that also subtracted something from the experienceThere were things I really loved though Moseley s interpretations of werewolves felt fresh and interesting There is also an ancient animal spirit sidekick that I greatly enjoyed I was reminded of several popular fantasy stories while reading this book The writing felt a lot like Jim Butcher s Storm Front to me The story felt like a good episode of Buffy the Vampire Slayer but with a significantly older castI d recommend this for anyone who enjoys modern fantasy and wants something fun to escape into for a little while BR with the cool Urban Fantasy fans from FBR 45 stars and this one s a Keeper Working as an estate agent in the town of Brackenford isn t the hardest The Way of Wizardry (Dragon Warriors RPG job in the worldust ask T You wanted spooky you got it said Trev a little unkindly Welcome to the Midlands of England to the sleepy little town of Brackenford where Trev Irwin realtor is drafted into supernatural service Mr Irwin having never even wrestled a crocodile was completely unprepared for the existence of the supernatural This book sets up an urban fantasy of vampires ghouls ghosts werewolves and much all precariously balanced against each other and humanity It s uniue and well doneI loved the plethora of differing British accents represented I would buy this as an audiobook in a heartbeatI absolutely adored the talking cat and liked the talking swords There isn t enough of this in fantasyWhat I didn t like the MC was so rude and that s The Bellringers Bedside Companion just not something Americans expect out of Brits Turns out there are two kinds of male Brits there are gentlemen and there are blokes Trev was raised by a gentleman but chose to be a bloke I spent uite a bit of this book hoping for a Firthing What I hated the most disgusting book I ve ever read was The Devourers in which the word piss is used 32 times This book used it 29 times I don t believe it was ever used literally but it was used liberally Taking a term for urination and using it out of context was funny the first time and only the first time Every time after the word got smellier I don t know if this is a case of Midland blokes proclivity for yellow language or if the authorust fell in love with a word like snort in Fish Chips A good start to series Trevor Irwin progresses in the book from wanker to git if he can do that in a week he should be nice guy by book three from wanker to git if he can do that in a week he should be nice guy by book three Ket tycoon Alastair Kolley he finds that he’s upgraded his status from “potential collateral damage” to “target” in the eyes of the bad guys But who are the bad guys Is it the tabloid reading ghouls who live in the sewers The werewolf self help group that meets in the church hall Or the local lord of the manor who looks pretty sprightly for a man who’s over 150 years old Trev hasn’t a clue and the only help he’s got comes from a septuagenarian a puritanical Victorian ghost and the world’s most sarcastic catYep – he’s basically screwed. If a novel described as a hilarious fantasy story full of clever snarky dialogue sounds appealing to you then I recommend reading Location Location Damnation book one of a series by Nick Mosely Although the scary dangers encountered within the pages are deadly an intrepid band of heroes never allow the possibility of dying stop the 50 Years of Documenta 1955-2005 jokes The characters which populate the fictional English village of Brackenford include ghouls vampires werewolves shades spirits and occasionally a demon called to this universe by a mysterious someone mad enough to think their magical prowess in occult spells is strong enough to control such dark beings I will not go further in this review about them and spoil the funBrackenford exists in a spot where unfortunately the skin between universes is thin Most villagers are clueless to the existence of the magical creatures all about them However some humans possess the power of Sight which runs in families It sometimes skips generations and sometimes the Sight is not strong Brackenford is watched over by one with some Sight powers as well as his friends the familiars Agatha and Oscar Oscar is my favorite but Bernard is getting old Bernard s daughter a lawyer does not have the Sight However Bernard has an adult grandson Could the untested lad be a chosen oneTrevor Irwinust turned thirty works for SmoothMove a real estate firm as an estate agent He is good at his Make Ink: A Foragers Guide to Natural Inkmaking job but he is not particularly ambitious He likes hisob and most of his co workers Life is good Then one morning he sees a ghost A murderous ghost A murderous ghost who seemingly possesses another customer at the Hot Cuisine where Trevor gets his usual breakfast coffee order before reporting to his office Trevor does not believe in ghosts He could not have seen a ghost The day is only beginningEventually he shakes off the ensuing mayhem and weird experiences They are hallucinations Weren t they No gentle reader It was no hallucination Trevor has the Sight No one told him about it including Bernard his Granddad the seventy eight year old historian of Brackenford and the town s secret Custodian Custodians keep the non human species at peace with each other settling their disputes But it is time Agatha tells Trevor he needs to talk to his granddadExcerpt from the bookA a agatha stammered TrevNo ust Agatha replied the woman arching an eyebrow Trev goggled at her She appeared to be inner late thirties possibly early forties She was wearing a high necked collarless black blouse buttoned all the way up and a matching skirt that fell all the way to her shoes which were flat soled and practical Her hair was pulled back into a ponytail and secured with a dark blue bow Trev was reminded of an old photograph his Granddad had shown him of a Victorian schoolmistress What on earth s wrong with youYou re not touching the floor said TrevI can t touch anything let alone the floor replied Agatha I m not altogether corporeal I m afraidTrev slowly reached out and tried to touch Agatha s arm She looked as solid and real as any normal person albeit a little air borne but his fingers passed through her It was like putting his hand into a concentrated patch of cold airI fear that I am also lacking a shadow said Agatha somewhat sadlyI m going mad Trevor said shaking his head I m only thirty and I ve cracked upDon t be silly said Agatha in a no nonsense tone I realize this is all rather new to you and possibly distressing but I can assure you that you are perfectly saneOh that s all right then said Trev sitting up The bloody ghost says I m not barking That s a reliefCertainly not said Agatha She looked genuinely offended I admit that I have been keeping an eye on you but I have hardly been taking pleasure from itBut whyI was asked to We didn t think your Sight would show itself yet it clearly it has uite unusualMy sight I ve been able to see my whole life said Trev Who s this we anyway Are you talking about those shadow things And the faces in the mistNo said Agatha very firmly I am not talking about them I was referring to Bernard Your grandfather Granddad blurted Trev My Granddad can see you tooOf course he can said Agatha He is after All The Custodian I Think the Custodian I think would be a good idea if we went to see him Your unfortunate experience in Bandstand Park has rather changed things I fancyWhat things What do you mean by he s the Custodian What the hell are you on about Why are you talking in riddles Why won t the lot of you ust leave me alone Trev was up off the bed now his reddening face close to Agatha s pale oneWell really she replied A certain amount of confusion and shock was to be expected but I had hoped you would conduct yourself with a little decorum than this Decorum replied Trev I ve been threatened by a possessed man who then went off and battered two people to death I ve had you playing hide and bloody seek with me all day I ve seen shadows that seem alive heard creepy whispering seen eyes in the mist in Bandstand Park and all you re worried about is my mannersSuch as they are Agatha sniffedThere s a war on Trevor said Grandad his tone somber It s been going on since before any of us were born and it ll go on long after we re all deadAgatha S Dead Already Trev Pointed Out They Both Ignored HimThe dead already Trev pointed out They both ignored himThe is a slow reveal for half of the book with worrying actionfightsdeath struggles happening late in the book after many mysterious goings on but readers will enjoy the wait The dialogue is incredibly but delightfully snarky with a snide comment or Thin Air (Jessica Shaw, joke occurring in almost every sentence particularly in the dialogues between cha. Trev Irwin didn’t believe in ghosts which made it something of a shock when he saw oneWorking as an estate agent in the town of Brackenford isn’t the hardestob in the world – ust ask Trev Irwin He knows the market inside out house prices are steady and the only competition in the office is Barry who has all the wit and charm of a mouth ulcerBut there are other forces at work in Brackenford besides the unuenchable desire of grannies to buy bungalows as Trev discovers when he witnesses a shadowy entity possess a man in a local café A man who goes Racters evil and good The continuous YA snark means the characters seem to speak in the same hilarious voice unfortunately but any observers of a reader reading this novel will notice gutbusting laughs or sudden snorts bursting out of most readers all of the time Each character IS well defined physically so the stereotypical characterizations are a plus in this circumstance The book is well written in any case gentle reader I loved it absolutely loved the book I highly recommend Location Location Damnation Trevor Irwin Trev to his friends works as an estate agent in the town of Brackenford It s an easy ob Trev knows the house market inside and out and there isn t much competition to speak of Brackenford has always had a reputation for paranormal events something self proclaimed skeptic Trev has always scoffed at Right up until the moment when Trev sees his first ghost possess a man at a local cafe Who knew there was some truth to the old stories his granddad used to tell Trev Location Location Damnation is the first book in The Brackenford Cycle by Nick Moseley It is an urban fantasy set in the sleepy town of Brakenford UK Full of cheeky dialogue and snarky humor Trev is way in over his head as he is given a crash course on the paranormal situation in the region The world features plenty of urban fantasy staples familiar ones like vampires and ghosts and others with a uniue twist My favorite hands down are the ghouls They come across goblinish and learned how to communicate with humans from tabloids Fair warning to those outside of the UK there is use of British slang that may be unfamiliar My US based self had to look up a couple of them to make sure I understood what was being referencedTrev is the ultimate reluctant hero I was both rooting for him and wanting to punch him the whole book He s arrogant yet his first instinct is to run and hide when his world turns upside down which I found uite believable His snarky sarcastic humor both made me chuckle and roll my eyes at the vulgarity of some of the The Vanishing Hours jokes He does start on a character arc though showing promise Urban Fantasy is not normally a genre I spend a lot of time reading but Ioined a fun group reading it on GR and ended up enjoying it The book is filled with action good characters and lots of wit all of which kept it a light and fun read If you enjoy urban fantasy or have a thought of giving it a shot this seems like a good one to go with 4050 stars for me Really liked it I had some minor pacing problem at the beginning and it suffered from being read at the same time as new favorites of mine but it was still really good and I m eager to read the rest Working as an estate agent in the town of Brackenford isn t the hardest Horse Sense job in the worldust ask Trev Irwin He knows the market inside out house prices are steady and the only competition in the office is Barry who has all the wit and charm of a mouth ulcerBut there are other forces at work in Brackenford besides the unuenchable desire of grannies to buy bungalows as Trev discovers when he witnesses a shadowy entity possess a man in a local caf A man who goes straight home and murders his wife and her lover With a cricket bat 35 stars This book series caught my eye when I saw it was part of a buddy read I was particularly interested in it because it promised to be humorous and I m always looking for a book that can make me laugh I could also have possibly been drawn to it because we ust happen to have our house on the market right NOW AND HAVE BEEN LOOKING FOR A NEW ONE and have been looking for a new one uite a few months It was an interesting coincidence that this book features real estate agents or estate agents as they are called in England Fortunately this book had me laughing immediately I loved all the snarky sarcasm I was interested in the story right away as well Unfortunately the story itself lost some steam somewhere in the middle It was still fun but not as entertaining as I was hoping it would be but I have heard that the series gets better so I ll stick it out for the next bookThe things I liked best about the book was the snarky sarcastic humor the characters Oscar Because who doesn t love a talking cat and Agatha I hope they continue to be featured prominently in the seriesReview also posted at Writings of a Reader Take a pinch of the humour from Hot Fuzz a pinch of Seanan McGuire s Incryptid series a slightly heftier dose of Charles Stross Laundry Files run the whole thing through a British bloke s point of view for flavour and you ust might have yourself Location Location DamnationTrevor or Trev depending on if you ve been on the receiving end of his snark or not is a real estate agent in Brackenford But suddenly he s seeing pulsating shadows and he could swear that sparrow is looking at him funny So begins the first book in a promising urban fantasy series set in the Midlands of the UK It s uite a pleasant change to have a British sense of humour at the fore though Trev s not afraid to get pretty salty in parts There s a pleasantly uirky set of local supernatural wildlife around the ghouls who speak in Tabloid Being My Personal Favourite Along my personal favourite along some surprisingly normal humans There was the odd moment where the dialogue got a wee bit clunky or the plot was moved along by a very convenient coincidence but for a debut novel it was a strong and entertaining read Brackenford Scandal Real Estate Agent Takes Advice From Talking Cat Its fake news he never actually listens to me OscarWhen destiny grabs you by the
