    One thought on “Mr. Twilight”

    1. I honestly don't understand what I feel about this book. Don't think I can write it down in a nutshell either, butThe story revolves around Colin. He doesn't have a last name—a detail which, if not at all part of the conspiracy to make the protagonist painstakingly cryptic, is too darn much of an excuse to skip coming up with a full proof character history. He's a powerful mage, on the run from the forces of evil; an angel and a demon sitting quite literally upon either of his shoulders. A rif [...]

    2. The rating is from . The reviews below are from readers:I couldn't put this book down! Part magic realism, part urban fantasy, with more than a passing nod to Lovecraft and his ilk, but not too much for the horror-squeamish. It's got a whole lot of what always draws me to Charles de Lint, and I think de Lint fans would enjoy it. It also shares elements with the Magic Time series: parallel narratives, separate stories that gradually come together, and the gradual reveal of an overall picture that [...]

    3. I won this book a few years ago at a online conference's contest. I thought it was time to read it and try it out. This is a cross between sci fi and fantasy, when Colin, a soul who hasn't crossed over yet and going after Lilith, his love, when someone opened a rift to let bad things happen. From there, it's up to Colin, an angel named Zoel, a demon named Asdeon, and a shaman named Gabrielle, to fight those forces, when a few people have died, even if they have to join forces with the police. In [...]

    4. I liked it, but it the way it is written seems to imply that there is/will be a sequel and just maybe a prequel, but although I've checked a few times over the years, I've never found any information. It's still a good book to read as a stand-alone novel, but it leaves the reader a little unfulfilled with the seeming promise of more to come.I stand corrected, while I apparently had no luck finding what I now know to be the first book over the years, it does exist, and is called Hell on Earth, al [...]

    5. Colin doesn't know who he is. He was found wandering around speaking an unknown language near the castle of Vlad Tepes (Dracula). He escaped the Schoolomance only to discover someone has set him up with a trust fund and a house so he can use his magical abilities to "do good" with the help of an angel and a demon. Oh, and a sexy female Dine shaman who's being stalked by the ghost of a evil brujeria.There just wasn't much character development and I kept seeing bits and pieces that reminded me of [...]

    6. I liked this occult mystery thriller, which pays homage to pulp writers like H.P. Lovecraft, and has a demon providing comic relief. The pacing of the story was good as well.

    7. Good story but the author refers too often without enough detail to other adventures. Great to know there will be more, but not the best for a new reader.
