Review: Badge, Book and Candle (Bookburners Episode #1.1) by Max Gladstone

The first episode of Bookburners, BADGE, BOOK AND CANDLE, sure packs a punch for only forty one pages.

The introduction gets you into the brain of the main character quickly and effectively, and unlike many female police characters, I didn’t get the feeling she had a massive chip on her shoulders or something to prove that made her cold and distant.

From the titles to the page, the first three books in the Craft Sequence marry numbers with magic. The stories themselves explore different parts of society, but always on the bedrock of a spiritual economy where soul stuff is traded and bartered to power the world. FULL FATHOM FIVE weaves together new and old characters on an island of idols and mysteries, infusing this broken world with a slowly building hope that is impossible to resist.

THE GIRL WITH A DRAGON TATTOO meets THE HUNDRED THOUSAND KINGDOMS, THREE PARTS DEAD is the perfect mixture of character, mystery, and world building. Gladstone deftly interweaves a dazzling, intricate world with a passionate, magical plot that had my heart afire for Kos Everburning and his long lost love.
