Inhaltsangabe

My Name is Otto Schneider and I am a wizard. I think. 

When a missing person case brings me into contact with the only other supernatural creature I have ever seen, it’s not long before I am ass-deep in trouble. 

The police don’t like me, there’s a clandestine organisation who want me to join them, and what might be a demon trying to catch me. When I refuse to play ball with any of them, my life starts to get tough, but I had no idea how low they might stoop to force my hand. 

Soon they will find out just how badly they underestimated me. I hope. Have I bitten off more than I can chew? 

Somehow, I need to escape captivity, cross to a mysterious demon realm, rescue a girl, and find my way back. Easy, right? It might be if they hadn’t confiscated my wand. 

Thankfully, I’m not alone, I have a powerful werewolf as an ally. If only he wasn’t such an annoying, snarky d-bag.

Why Bremen?

First of all I don´t like the narrator. He sounds like he is stumbling over the words, he is lisping a bit and his pronunciation is not clear enough. About the book: The story is not new, but if you miss new books about other wizards, it can be a filler. What I don´t get is, why the author choose to use Bremen in Germany as a setting. London or any US city would be a better fit. The description of the police work does better fit the US system. As an author, if you choose a setting for your book you should be familiar with it. For example German police officers don´t have badges (al least not like the officers in the US). They may have name or number tags, but even those are not even required in many cases. Also "calling an Uber" is not a thing in Germany and Pretzels for breakfast in Bremen - seriously? There are already wizards in London, Chicago and LA - and for a good reason, as those cities provide a good environment like high crime rates that provide good context for their stories. The city of Bremen hast half a million inhabitants. The murder rate in whole Germany in one year is 0.9 per 100.000 inhabitants, for the US it´s 5 (!) and for GB it´s 1.2 - and for many US cities it is considerably higher: for Baltimore US it´s 50 (!). In Germany however, murders are not so "common". A murder spree plus dead police officers - all within a relatively small city - whole Europe would notice. Choosing Bremen does not make sense, especially since the author has a rough knowledge of Germany at best. Replacing the German names and places with American ones would not hurt the story - quite the opposite.
