    One thought on “Wrong Side of Hell”

    1. Few years ago, I read Sonya Bateman s Gavyn Donatti urban fantasy series Master of None and Master and Apprentice and I really enjoyed it So I was bummed when I discovered that the series didn t continue probably the publisher decided that it wasn t selling enough Then I found out that she released a NEW one totally by coincidence I saw the cover at Lou Harper s Gallery and I was so excited It wasn t a continuation to Donatti, but I didn t care It is a NEW book and hopefully new series Well, I e [...]

    2. I liked this UF version of paranormals and trying to live among humans I really look forward to reading the in the series.

    3. 3.5 I enjoyed it It had some shaky plotting going on, but the author s voice is very easy to read, the premise is interesting and Gideon is a likable character.So Gideon lives on his own, mostly out of his van to avoid detection from his whacko family His makeshift home doubles as his way to earn a living He s the guy that gets a dead body from point A to point B I mean, somebody s has to do it Right Anyhow, he also gets these feelings when he touches them kinda their last thoughts If it s a mur [...]

    4. I really wanted to like this.My first problem with the book was Gideon Gideon was an alright fellow, but he exhibited too much of this Chosen One mentality where the stereotype seemed to define him than anything else He has this great power, but no explanation for why He also has a tragic past being hunted by a crazy family, but doesn t exhibit any kind of mental trauma Sure, he tells us it sucked, but this is a clear example of telling, not showing that left me feeling very detached from him a [...]

    5. Excellent story, and I rarely say that.I also rarely give five stars I m so pleased I found this author and the DeathSpeaker Codex I m am avid reader and authors like Patricia Briggs, Seanon McGuire and Kim Harrison, among others, have set the bar pretty high for urban fantasy I ve read than my share of UF PR books that failed to hit the mark, sometimes painfully so.I m pleased to say The DeathSpeaker book 1 had everything I like and nothing I didn t like Budding romance that does NOT take over [...]

    6. I don t give many 5 star reviews, and I was a little hesitant doing so with this one, but I decided to round up because it s a well written, thoroughly enjoyable book from beginning to end The narrative and dialogue are well written without a wasted, superfluous word This is not a roller coaster story with its slow up and crazy, exciting downs It s like a rocket car the blasts off and pushes you back in your seat for the entire ride Editing is very good I caught a missing opening quotation mark [...]

    8. Gideon, transporter of corpses across New York City, does not lead a conventional life and he certainly hasn t has a conventional upbringingBut even he wasn t prepared for the corpses to talk back, a werewolf stalking central park and finding a whole world of Fae, magic and And a team of hunters dedicated to wiping them all out and ready to use him to do it.This book has a lot of wonderful elements I always love.We have a very wide world of various supernatural creatures with lots of hints of co [...]

    9. The book starts strong Our tough as nails hero is Gideon Black He moves bodies for the city, lives off the grid, and moonlights as a kind of unofficial consultant for his detective friend Gideon s weird, but it s a human kind of weird Until he tries to investigate a series of gruesome murders and comes face to face with a werewolf Until he starts hearing dead people and is attacked by a secret cult of monster hunters.Gideon s sleuthing and the murder mystery was wonderfully interspaced with hint [...]

    10. This is an urban fantasy No cliffhanger, no sex, lots of violence but nothing overly descriptive It s part of a series and there isn t exactly a HEA, but everybody lives so that s a plus.This story was pretty straight forward It wasn t hard to figure out the players and the plot was simple enough The whole story was an adventure kind of a death at every turn kind of adventure This world focused on the OtherWorld Gideon is the main character and though he is clueless to begin with, it was a sink [...]

    11. This was an freebie, the start of another urban fantasy series a genre I enjoy when the focus is on action rather than romance This had the same plot as virtually every other fantasy lonely young person with a painful childhood discovers they have magical powers and a family they knew nothing about, and are destined for a key role in the fight against evil So far so Harry Potter Star Wars every other YA adventure of the last 20 years This does have a likeable hero in Gideon, who collects dead b [...]

    12. A curious thing happened on the way to the morgueFor a man who obviously had an abusive childhood which he managed to escape and survive, Gideon Black was leading a quiet if not entirely normal live, doing a job few are suited for But all that changed the night he hauled a body to the morgue and the body talked to him, albeit in his mind From that point on any semblance to normal flies right out the window.What takes place in what I assume is a time period of six days maybe less turns his entire [...]

    13. I had previously read the author s djinn books so I was interested in seeing what she was going to do with the Fae as they are not my favourite magical creature I was not disappointed The book starts with a prologue, featuring a Fae who is trying to find his dead father s human lover before she falls victim to their enemies but he finds her dead He is able to save her child, his half brother and vows to put him with a human family to keep him safe from the hunters Intriguing start, and the reade [...]

    14. This was a really fun book A man who makes a living transporting dead bodies, who sometimes seem to talk to him, discovers there is a whole other world filled with dark magical creatures He also discovers that he is part of their world as much as he d like to remain just a lonely body mover who lives in his van This book was an amazing page turner I was hooked from page one and was not disappointed until I finished the last chapter Oh man was this book awesome.I loved the main character His atti [...]

    15. It s always great when you take a chance on a book and a new author only to find yourself pleasantly surprised That is the case with Wrong Side of Hell The concept of the storyline was unique and I really enjoyed the main character, Gideon.Gideon Black was raised by the Valentines, a family of sadistic rednecks until one day he walked away Now, he lives off the grid, working as a body carrier for the morgue, living out of his van and paying cash for everything.After picking up two bodies from Ce [...]

    16. Urban Fantasy is a bit like fast food While it isn t haute cuisine, it is fast, and if well done can be quite tasty Sonya Bateman isn t the next Neil Gaiman, but she is a good storyteller, able to put a slightly different twist on the human vs other scenario One nice difference is that she uses a male lead Gideon has an amiable nature and an easy charm that keeps him from coming across too powerful He is also clever, but pleasantly lacking ego Also unlike the female leads in many urban fantasies [...]

    17. Well paced, fun read.Gideon Black is reminiscent of the Harry Dresden books, but without a lot of the angst and over description of gore It was really fun to ride along as Gideon got to know about who he really is and start to play around with powers he never knew he had The secondary characters were also fun to get to know as they formed a loose sort of team of frenemies Other reviewers mentioned those characters not being fully fleshed out, but I thought we got to know them just enough for th [...]

    18. I read a lot of books that are the first in a series, and Wrong Side of Hell by Sonya Bateman is the next addition to that particular section on my bookshelves When I read the first book in a series, I m looking for the author to satisfy a few specific requirements and convince me that continuing to read the series is going to be worth an investment of my time and my book budget this is always an important factor for me, because I m a woman who does have a book budget and though I love my public [...]

    19. I really quite enjoyed this I found it a fun, action packed romp through NYC s paranormal population Now, I also found it unrealistic, in that a group of seven took on an almost limitless enemy organization but, well, that s part of the fun isn t it Who doesn t love rooting for the underdog I thought Gideon an interesting character and I liked his narrative voice quite a lot Similarly, I liked the side characters, though I thought some of them could have been a little fleshed out and the villai [...]

    20. I thought it was OK for an urban fantasy novel My biggest problem was the characters themselves They were all quite flat with virtually no personality, especially Gideon How did he take his coffee, what kind of mannerisms does he have I have no idea At times I didn t even know he was a person because the dialogue he gave was so generic it could have been a rock that was speaking I may read the rest of the series, maybe the characters will develop But if they are still one dimensional I m not go [...]

    21. A fast paced urban fantasy that was a delight to read It s got mystery, romance, family drama Everything you can possibly hope for in a block buster Can t wait for the next one.

    22. Faerie and werewolf adventure story Lots of fighting and humor I enjoyed the characters and the plot Looking forward to .

    23. Nice romp in Central ParkGood story, engaging characters Like where the series is leading Looking forward to adventures with Gideon, Abe and others.

    24. Cracking good paranormal, action packed novel Werewolves, face, witches, bogeymen A wonderful mix of readable characters with a great MC at the heart of it all.

    25. I really enjoyed this book I was sucked in right away, and couldn t put it down Great for me, but horrible at work during a busy week Well written, fun characters, excellent urban fantasy.
