THE MAN WITH THE GOLDEN TORC
Genre: Paranormal/Urban Fantasy, Urban Fantasy
Written in Green's usual sarcastically snarky style, this is an entertaining and enjoyable series first. Eddie Drood is an engaging protagonist, and while the story treads on the same ground as Green's Nightside series, it stands on its own with the addition of James Bond-esque gadgets and high jinks.
Declared a rogue agent by his family, Edwin is on the run while trying to figure out who among the Drood clan is the traitor. Eddie's been under the assumption that his family is what protects humanity from things that go bump in the night, but to his dismay, he discovers the opposite is true.
With new allies at his back, including deliciously wild witch Molly Metcalf, Eddie hurtles from adventure to misadventure and back again, finding himself at the center of his family's greatest secret. (Roc, Jun., 400 pp., $23.95)
