From This Kind Of Magicalthis ind of magical He and his co workers have no intention of letting her help but Max has a soft spot and makes it his personal mission to قصههای خوب برای بچههای خوب --- ۶ keep her from becoming the next victim Taking things into her own hands Esther rounds up the partners of the other missing performers and shows what non magical New Yorkers can do when provokedI picked up the sixth in the Esther Diamond series The Misfortune Cookie because the cover was really cool and wound up falling in love with this series It s urban fantasy with a new monster each book but the story isn t the typical assicking urban magic using sword wielding warrior woman battles ferocious monster to the death It s of a mystery story with most of the book trying to figure out what Resilient kind of monster they re dealing with what they re goal is and how to put a stop to the trouble ex in Vamparazzi the bad guy was a serialiller who happened to be a vampire Esther can t use magic and she s not combat trained she Rozwazania o Psalmach knows enough to defend herself in New York City but she s not an assicking warrior woman but she s confidant resourceful and determinedThere s also a romance between Esther and the cop on the pop star s missing person case but I m warning you now it s only enjoyable if you accept it s probably never going to happen They re on again off again she does part time work at a mob restaurant and is good friends with the patrons and he s a cop he s not open to the idea of magic and when he wants to Grumpy, Frumpy, Happy, Snappy A Silly Monster Opposites Book know what s going on she either lies and he can tell or tells the truth and he can tell therefore concluding she s crazy And while their relationship is great comedy if you re hoping for romance you re going to be very annoyedThe story was great fun with wonderfully enjoyable characters and really the only drawback was one little bit right at the end that really threw me off The big bad demon causing the disappearances reuires a virgin sacrifice and the good guys escape by throwing his summoner to the wolves in their place The tone really doesn t sit well Not that they left him to be violently raped in their own self defense but how he shows up again three pages later limping dishevelled and irate but otherwise fine as though we should find it funny and not horrific I get that it s a comedy heavy book but there re also serious parts and this was one of them right up until this moment It disturbed me enough tonock my Goodreads rating down a full starThe verdict After that unfortunate bump right at the end the book series goes right back to getting full marks There s lots of adventure and it s heavy on comedy The villain was entertaining the characters were fun and interesting poor Detective Lopez make. “I’m not a heroine; I just play heroines Also psychotics orphans vamps hookers and housewives”When bizarre magical disappearances disrupt performances in the Big Apple struggling actress Esther Diamond receives a cryptic warning not to appear in an Off Broadway musical because “there is Evil among us”Si.
