The Last Smile in Sunder City by Luke Arnold, A Review

Meet Fetch Phillips: Man for Hire. This alcoholic, who also has a penchant for pain killers, has been living bottle to bottle and job to job while trying to come to terms with his past and the guilt he feels. Fetch is a detective in Sunder City, a place populated by not only all kinds of people, but all kinds of magical being, even if there is no more magic.

Magic disappeared 6 years ago, when the Coda happened. The Coda is when humans tried to capture and control magic at its essence by using machinery. This caused the natural magic of the world to stop, which changed the lives of magical beings, like werewolves and wizards, forever. This also made the post-Coda magical community view humans as pariahs, which a lot of humans honestly deserve.

I loved how the author spent plenty of time building the history of the main character, Fetch. He doesn’t start out as the most loveable person, but turns into a character I cant help but adore and completely understand.

This story is a blast to read, fast to get through and hard to put down. I highly recommend it for fantasy fans, for humans and non-human alike!

Thanks for reading my review and happy reading!!!
