Review: The Iron Hunt by Marjorie M. Liu

The Iron Hunt The Iron Hunt by Mar­jorie M. Liu

My review

rat­ing: 5 of 5 stars
The Iron Hunt is a beau­ti­ful­ly writ­ten book with some inter­est­ing twists on estab­lished fan­ta­sy memes. To some extent, I felt that I’d come in to the world on book 2 or 3, but as far as I know (and from what Ama­zon says) this is the first book of the Hunter Kiss series. There was a bit of Buffy and a lit­tle Witch­blade, with oth­er ele­ments I’m sure I’m overlooking.

For once, it’s good to see a nov­el in which an estab­lished cou­ple has a seem­ing­ly-healthy rela­tion­ship. Max­ine and Grant have very dif­fer­ent skills, but they work togeth­er well. That said, this is not a romance, so some of Liu’s read­ers may not enjoy it.

Edit­ed to add: I just learned that there is, in fact, a pre­quel to this book in Wild Thing (an anthol­o­gy), which I had­n’t heard of before. I’ll cer­tain­ly be look­ing for it.

Next up: The Down Home Zom­bie Bluesby new-to-me-author Lin­nea Sinclair
