Book One of the Negotiator Trilogy
This is an enjoyable book with the introduction of a new species in the contemporary fantasy genre. The story starts with Margrit, a likable lawyer who is independent and determined and ignorant about the other races. However, soon she meets Albund, a gargole who asks her to represent and clear him of the murders that are currently taking place in central park. Which he decides he really needs since Albund is the main suspect.
Other interesting species are also introduced in the book, like dragons, silkies and of course vampires. The book showed great character development and we really came to care for the main characters. I particularly liked the interaction between Albund and Margrit. The book is suspenseful and has an interesting story. I liked the ending as well, which came to a full conclusion and tied everything up nicely with a bow.
I am looking forward to reading the next book in the series.
