Inhaltsangabe

From New York Times best-selling author Kevin Hearne comes the start of a hugely entertaining new series set in the world of the Iron Druid Chronicles - about an eccentric master of magic solving an uncanny mystery in Scotland....

Al MacBharrais is both blessed and cursed. He is blessed with an extraordinary white moustache, an appreciation for craft cocktails - and a most unique magical talent. He can cast spells with magically enchanted ink, and he uses his gifts to protect our world from rogue minions of various pantheons, especially the Fae. 

But he is also cursed. Anyone who hears his voice will begin to feel an inexplicable hatred for Al, so he can only communicate through the written word or speech apps. And his apprentices keep dying in peculiar freak accidents. As his personal life crumbles around him, he devotes his life to his work, all the while trying to crack the secret of his curse. 

But when his latest apprentice, Gordie, turns up dead in his Glasgow flat, Al discovers evidence that Gordie was living a secret life of crime. Now Al is forced to play detective - while avoiding actual detectives who are wondering why death seems to always follow Al. Investigating his apprentice's death will take him through Scotland's magical underworld and he'll need the help of a mischievous hobgoblin if he's to survive. 

Packed to the brim with mystery, magic and mayhem, Ink & Sigil is perfect for fans of Rivers of London and Rotherweird.

"Vividly blends Kevin Hearne's unique take on urban fantasy with the grit of Scottish magic." (Adam Christopher, author of Empire State)

"Ink & Sigil is filled to the brim with the Hearne-anigans we've all grown to love. Fans of ribald humor, literary puns and the odd hobgoblin will be enchanted by this paranormal mystery." (Jaye Wells, author of the Prospero's War series)

Großartiger Sprecher und interessante Welt

Tolles World Building, eine interessante Geschichte (wenn auch nichts bahnbrechendes) und ein extrem toller Sprecher. Der Großteil des Buches wird mit schottischem Akzent gesprochen, was vor allem für diejenigen, welche mit dem Englischen nicht extrem gut umgehen können eventuell zu einer großen Hürde werden könnte. Wer es versteht kriegt eine total stimmungsvolle Geschichte!
