Book Review: The Day of First Sun

When Princess Amelie of Amborix is murdered by magical means, Annie Pearce and Bobby “Cham” Chamsky of the Wizard’s Guard are called in by the FBI. Their job is to help solve the crime while keeping the non-magical world from discovering the existence of the Wizard Council.

During their investigation, Annie and Cham discover that Princess Amelie’s death is connected to a series of other crimes in the Chicago area. A larger plot involving, a vampire, a rogue wizard and an army of soul-less zombies is revealed, but can Annie and Cham discover who is responsible before The Day of First Sun?

The Day of The First Sun = FBI Harry Potter. I don't know what else i can call it. Imagine something like the after years of Harry Potter (since it has magic outside of school) and that you follow the wizard FBI (murders, investigations, connecting clues,autopsies). Plus put in some vampires (bad ones!!) to make it more dark. And tadah! Here is a quite interesting and clever book. The story alone is captivating, and even though you know the answers for most of the things happening, it still has something that keeps you in. 

Then we have Annie and Chan with an amazing alchemy, not only as a couple but as friends and partners too. Team badass it is! Plus, both are two characters almost impossible to dislike. They are good and fair people, and scary when its need to be.

Only things i need to mention on the negative side it's the POV. While it's third person, you have scenes and thoughts from almost all the characters in the story. Which i really don't mind, since i like to see how everyone things. What really confused me, and i barely managed to get used it was that sometimes in one chapter or sub-chapter you were clearly changing characters from one paragraph to another. When this happened with Annie and Cham it was okay, because i knew the two characters well but when it happened between secondary characters like Jack or Jordan, i had to re-read some sentences.

Either way, the book is different and has an interesting take. I'm really into mysteries and some magic is good too, and so i enjoyed it.

  1. WOW!! This sounds really good....I'll have to read it someday....Thanks for the review!!

  2. Thanks so much for hosting my blog this week on my blog tour. I'm glad you enjoyed the book and I appreciate all of you bloggers who support us newbie writers. Thanks again.

    1. I'm more than happy to promote you guys. I don't really care for indie, newbies or well known authors. It's the story that matters not the experience or the publishers and that's how i choose every book i read :)

      And i want to say what a great cover the book has :) I'm really happy to see good covers on books. They make me love them more.

    2. Well we appreciate you all the same. I glad you liked the book. I had thought of writing in the first person at one point, and did have one chapter written that way. I may actually look into writing one of the books in the series as first person to really give insight into Annie. Sometimes it's a little scary to try something you're not familiar with. So thanks again for the great review!

  3. My friend, Yiota! Thanks for being a part of this tour and for sharing your likes and dislikes about this novel. Team bad ass all the way! When you have a quick moment would you mind cross-posting your review to Amazon and GoodReads? Thanks so much!
