Fun Urban Fantasy Romp

Dead Waters (Simon Canderous, #4)Dead Waters by Anton Strout
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Dead Waters by Anton Strout is the best of the series so far. Strout’s comedic writing style has matured, though his main character still has a ways to go, which is part of the fun. Simon is a wise-cracking machine—and a zombie skull crushing machine, with his telescoping metal bat. Add in his psychometry powers, he can tell an object’s history by touching it, and you have a very fascinating character.

I really enjoyed this book was surprised at all the twists and turns as the murder investigation unfolded. The interaction between Simon and his girlfriend, Jane was highly entertaining. The side characters delivered as well, plus this book had crazy mythology, ass kicking, romance, and during the finale, the most unique use of a Ghostbusters lunch box ever.

For a fun urban fantasy romp, take a dip into Dead Waters, just watch out for the floating zombies . . . they’ll bite your ankles off.
