Police-officer-turned-private-investigator Goethe “Got” Luck is known for rolling with the punches and never taking anything too seriously. When he picks up a seemingly dead-end murder case, his life begins to take a crazy turn. Shot at, chased by people he has never met, and attacked by an invisible liondog, Got quickly learns that there is more to this world than meets the eye.
He discovers the Fae. The Eternals. They who dwell in the Behindbeyond. Once, they ruled over ancient realms, but over the centuries, their power dwindled. Now someone wants to restore their rule and subjugate humankind. All it will cost is thousands of human lives.
The clock is ticking. Getting the world out of this one will take a couple friends, more than a few well-placed insults, and a whole lot of Luck.
I will start this review by doing something I have never done before. I want everyone to know that I LOVE the cover of this book.
Now that I got that out of my system, onto my review.
I liked Got Luck. It was fast-paced, full of twists and turns and surprises with every page, making it exciting to read because you didn’t know what would happen next. It took me exactly one day to read this book in one sitting. Not easy to do with three kids, but it happened.
As stated in previous reviews, I loved anything Celtic, and this book didn’t hold back. It had the Fae, and the author made many references to Goethe’s poem, “Der Erlkonig.” If you want to know more, read the book.
The ending was a bit of a surprise and had a twist that made me sad. Again, if you want to know what it was, read the book!!!!!
If you enjoyed reading Got Luck, you will enjoy reading these books:
