his van, talks to corpses, and occasionally helps the police solve murders His life may not be normal, but it s simple enoughUntil the corpses start talking backWhen Gideon accidentally rescues a werewolf in Central Park, he s drawn into the secret world of the Others Fae, were shifters, dark magic users and , all playing a deadly cat and mouse game with Milus Dei, a massive and powerful cult dedicated to hunting down and eradicating them allThen a dead man speaks to him, saying that Milus Dei wants him than any Other They ll stop at nothing to capture him and control the abilities he never knew he hadHe is the DeathSpeaker He is the key And he s not as human as he thoughtLife was a whole lot easier when the dead stayed dead Gideon, transporter of corpses across New York City, does not lead a conventional life and he certainly hasn t has a conventional upbringingBut even he wasn t prepared for the corpses to talk back, a werewolf stalking central park and finding a whole world

prepared for the corpses to talk back, a werewolf stalking central park and finding a whole world of Fae, magic and And a team of hunters dedicated to wiping them all out and ready to use him to do it.This book has a lot of wonderful elements I always love.We have a very wide world of various supernatural creatures with lots of hints of complex cultures and histories and different interactions which is definitely something I look for There s also a lack of info dumping though that may be due to other issues later I really love how the werewolves are linked to moonlight which is a really original touch which I always appreciate And bogeypeople I love the bogeypeople That s a scary addition to the supernatural menagerie of this world It s fun, it s broad and it has vast potential.I also like the twist of the bad guys, the fear of the power they have not from just money and resources but their knowledge of the supernatural Normal humans who are determined to figure out every last weakness of the supernatural are considered utterly, unassailably powerful which is definitely different from what I ve read beforeThe pacing of this book barely pauses for a second The action starts very early, there s very little delay or even introduction before we race into the story We have lots of action, lots of information and this huge wonderful broad world to absorb as soon as possible It s a book that quickly drags you in then has you sprinting none stop all to the end.We do have a little bit of a Chosen One scenario because there really is no real explanation for why Gideon has the world changing super woo woo To say nothing to the pretty terrible magical world building of having Gideon master impossible for him faerie powers with the power of imagination I generally like Gideon a lot, I like his attitude, his humour, his resilience, his determination and the fact he s been outspoken without being ridiculously foolish and annoying with it But super powers just cos is never something that I m a fan of.I do think this book was perhaps a little rushed in many way which, in turn, made some elements of it far too hurried.For example, we get insights into Gideon s past which was sad and tragic Of course it was sad and tragic Isn t it ALWAYS sad and tragic But rather than just abusive parents he actually has brothers who hunted and shot him for fun.Shot him With a gun A real gun Not an air rifle A gun Isn t that just a bit too quick and extreme And why is he afraid of having an actual address to hide from, what, 3 poor hunters who kill animals What, they have access to FBI databases or something They re going to hunt you down and shoot you with rifles in New York City Or his relationship with Taeral which goes form cursed human begone to brother mine we are united and loyal forever Or there s Gideon s reaction to the supernatural which is like 2 seconds of blinking and a really nice shocked reaction to actual werewolves existing to kind of taking it all in strideOr there s the way he gets really really really used to actually killing people.Read More Kindle freebie 5 3 16 Few years ago, I read Sonya Bateman s Gavyn Donatti urban fantasy series Master of None and Master and Apprentice and I really enjoyed it So I was bummed when I discovered that the series didn t continue probably the publisher decided that it wasn t selling enough Then I

series didn t continue probably the publisher decided that it wasn t selling enough Then I found out that she released a NEW one totally by coincidence I saw the cover at Lou Harper s Gallery and I was so excited It wasn t a continuation to Donatti, but I didn t care It is a NEW book and hopefully new series Well, I enjoyed this one too The beginning had a tortured Fae, saving his haffling baby brother then the story starts 26 years later with Gideon Black, whose job is transporting corpses to the city morgue Only this time, with a corpse that seems to be mangled by a big animal, well, the corpse TALKS to Gideon Apparently, it is a start of a new life for Gideon when he finally finds out about supernatural beings as well as his own heritage Of course, what s an urban fantasy series without some life threatening actions to our heroes, right Because Gideon must also stand up and fight against Milus Dei, an ancient cult dedicated to hunt down and destroy non human beings.It was a fast paced read, and I LOVE the characters introduced here I loved Gideon, I liked that he embraces his power and heritage quite well, and when push comes to shove he doesn t hesitate The villain is not a big mystery here, it s the adventure and finding a new set of family for Gideon that just warmed me over So yep, I loved it The book mentioned a title for second book already, so I hope, with this being self published and everything, that it will have better life than the Donatti series.Yay for new urban fantasy to follow This review was originally posted on Books of My Heart Review copy

Side of Hell is your standard UF tale It has the MC who didn t realize how special they were, with a mysterious past Something nasty trying to kill capture them and then the potential love interest s off to the side The biggest difference here is the cast of characters include Fae and the MC can commune with the dead.Gideon had a semi normal childhood, that is if by normal, you mean his parents despised him and his siblings tried to kill him occasionally He grew up learning how to be small and unnoticed Now he stays off the radar and his job is to pick up the dead and haul them to wherever they are going next Usually that is the morgue He is so off the grid, his job is cash work mostly and he lives in his van.Gideon has always felt a little different, he gets feelings about things and has a cop buddy he sometimes helps to solve crimes He doesn t learn just how different he is until he saves a girl from the man trying to kill her one night She just happens to be a werewolf and introduces Gideon to the world of the Fae and to the Milus Dei, a group who tortures and tries to exterminate all of the fae on this side of the veil Gideon s origins and story are interesting enough He is a halfling fae that was secreted away His mother is dead and his father, well the Milus Dei caught him long ago His journey to discover his roots and the truth of how he came to be in the family of hunters long ago was probably the best part of the book for me There is the hint of a promise of romance down the road with one of the female characters in the book There isn t much romance in Wrong Side of Hell as most of the time the characters are in the middle of some action trying to stay alive Overall, this is a pretty standard UF I enjoyed it, and will probably check out the next book now that the world has been set up, to see if the next book can delve a little deeper into character development and fleshing out the world Narration Tristan Morris reminded me a little of William Shatner in his delivery for Wrong Side of Hell It was sometimes a little over dramatized in the telling, with pauses that definitely reminded me of Shatner s delivery style I did get used to it over the story, but it made everything seem just a smidge cheesy I listened to this at my normal 1.5x speed.Listen to a clip HERE
