No More Twenty Palaces

It bummed me out to learn that Harry Connolly's Twenty Palaces series will not be continuing. Sales have been decreasing and Connolly has decided to move on.  It's such a shame.  Child of Fire was one of my favorite reads of 2011.  It had a gritty, hardboiled feel to it that is unusual in urban fantasy.  Ray Lilly is a character out of the same mold as Sam Spade and Phillip Marlowe. His boss, Annalise - well, I don't know who I'd compare her to but she is brutal, scary, totally badass, and cool as shit.

I'm truly surprised that this series wasn't more popular.  I highly recommend it.  

Connolly also wrote a prequel to the series that tells how Ray and Annalise first met.  It's self-published and only in ebook form but you can buy it from Connolly direct.
