Origins: Publisher for Review
Format: Paperback
Series: Golgotham Series: Right Hand Magic (1)

Like most Manhattanites, aspiring artist Tate can't resist a good rental deal-even if it's in the city's strangest neighborhood, Golgotham, where for centuries werewolves, centaurs, and countless other creatures have roamed the streets.

Her new landlord is a sorcerer name Hexe, who is determined to build his reputation without using dark, left-hand magic. As Tate is drawn into Hexe's fascinating world, they both find that the right hand does not always know what the left hand is doing-and avoiding darkness is no easy trick...

I really enjoyed this book. It had a fresh new taste to it, for an urban fantasy. Also, the girl on the cover is modestly dressed for the genre's covers. I think the world is something new and the characters are well written and people (and beings) that I would be happy to know and be friends with, well most of them.

I like the oddities of the characters in this story. They each have their own thing and it makes them more real to the reader's eyes. I enjoyed traveling through NYC and Golgotham. Although, I couldn't help but think of batman as I read the name sometimes (don't judge).

I enjoyed the whole two people from two worlds, yet similar feel for Tate and Hexe (and I just heart Hexe, he is pretty bad-ass). I think that this series has a TON of potential and I will keep a watch out for future installments.
