Title: Got Luck
Author: Micheal Darling
Release Date: March 2016
Publisher: Future House Publishing
Plot Overview :
(This is a brief summary with not much detail, don’t want to spoil it too much for any potential readers)
Gothe Luck is a Private Detective who is approached by a rich widow called Milly, who requests he looks into her husband Barry’s death.
This marks the start of a very unusal adventure for Gothe and an explanation for things he has always known.
Over the period of 24 hours Gothe gets shot at, attacked by an invisible animal and enters a magical realm.
Goathe then discovers he is a halfling and his father is the Alder King and a Fae. Goathe is confused by his new surroundings and comes across someone he knows from the Mortal Realm and they get married in a Fae ceremony.
Over the next few chapters Goathe discovers that a Fae is responsible for the death he was investigating and that same Fae is trying to set up a portal to get the Mortal Realm linked to a Realm where all bad and fierce people and creatures are sent. His aim is to restore faith and belief in magic to give the Fae more power.
Eventually Goathe manages to stop this happening and his life moves on.
I honestly don’t know where to start with this review. I absolutely loved it. Despite having children and a toddler running around I picked it up read at every opportunity I got. A perfect blend if gritty crime and magic.
The main character is sarcastic and charming and the writing gave him depth. All the secondary characters were unique and added a lot to the overall story.
The plot itself was well written and devised.
The first description of the Eternal (Fae) Realm was imaginative and very well done. I felt like I could see it in my minds eye as if it was a real place. I was in awe and wonder just like Goethe as he explored the world around him.
An absolutely amazing read, perfect for crime and fantasy lovers alike. I cannot wait for the sequal!
Thanks for reading.
