    1. Wow.Just just wow.I ll explain any experienced Shadowrun fan will tell you that, by and large, most Shadowrun fiction of old isn t that great There are some truly fantastic books, but most are actually quite middling at best, with a focus on quantity This was common in many tabletop RPG houses back in the late 80s and 90s books, rather than less books with a higher quality.This is not one of those books.To start with, Catalyst have collected and published a truly very high quality set of novels [...]

    4. Excellent book, one of the best recent Shadowrun books I always wanted to see a good to honest detective under the Shadowrun banner, and we finally got one A lot of interesting characters even if the book is understandably based on Kincaid The story paces well and I never felt like it was too slow or too fast in the events that were happening I hope to see adventures of the paranormal investigator in the future.

    7. As a Shadowrun player I haven t read a lot of their novels so far, but for some reason this a better look into the world of Shadowrun than any of the rule or background books could ever give The everyday life of a magician is detailed so good and so authentic that you immediately get a much better feeling for Jimmy s hometurf Puyallup in general, non combat applications of magic in particular and the way otherwordly creatures interact with a distopian world A must read for every magic and face p [...]

    8. Shaken tells a story in the life of PI vigilante Shadowrunner Jimmy Kinkaid, a near burnout street mage with an attitude, the mentor to match, and the hots for his ally spirit This alone all but guarantees I like this book But it s narrated interestingly, the protagonist is appropriately biased, the book does give him is share of sucker punches and I really like the narrative flow, even if it may seem a little slow to some It s not Michael Bay, it s Fargo It s a voyage through the decrepit, brok [...]

    9. Great follow up to Neat This second in hopefully large series installment really fleshes out PI Paranormal Investigator James Kincaid by giving us a bit of his history and his current relationship with the various factions, friends, and opponents he deals with in the beautiful corner of Puyallup he calls home Unlike other Shadowrun characters, Kincaid is a SINner and his outlook has been shaped by his time as a cop He is the unofficial law, making deals, and keeping things from getting too bad [...]

    10. It s a very good street eye view of that particular universe It s fairly easy to tell that Mr Zimmerman has been playing Shadowrun for a good long while James Kincaid, the main character is beautifully developed, with a long and detailed backstory, and the book is as much about discovering that, as it is about the problem he s currently having.At the same time, and although Kincaid is an old hand at working the shady side of life kinda unavoidable if one is living in Puyallup he s not overpowere [...]

    11. I ve been reading a lot of Shadowrun lately, and most of it has been good though the bad has been REALLY bad This novel stands out though, because it shows that the Sixth World can actually be flexible and accommodate all kinds of storytelling It reads like a mystery novel in structure, but the setting manages to make the, by now familiar turns and twists, seem fresh I really liked this one, even though I took a long time to finish it I ll look forward to Jimmy Kincaid stories, and for of Mr Z [...]

    12. First off, I suggest you read the novella Neat before reading this novel.Second, I have to say this has been my favorite Shadowrun novel of the last decade or , on par with Tom Dowd s Burning Bright , Stackpole s Wolf and Raven and the Nigel Findley novels.Spectacular Knowing it s the first in a trilogy made me incredibly happy.
