A great review of Esoterrorism by the Bookie Monster by S Kay Nash!
Esoterrorism is a highly entertaining adventure through a tried-and-true Urban Fantasy trope: agents from a secret organization protect the regular people of the world from the supernatural. I’d call this novel a mashup between James Bond and Kolchak the Night Stalker.
There are plenty of franchises playing with this general theme, and the best way to stand out is to give readers memorable characters. C.T. Phipps offers us Derek Hawthorne, an insufferable smartass with the skills and experience to back up his wisecracks, his twin sister Penny, a powerful wizard, and his partner Shannon, a new agent from the European division.
