The Man With the Golden Torc (Shaman Bond #1) by Simon R. Green

The Man With the Golden Torc (Shaman Bond #1) The Man With the Golden Torc by Simon R. Green

From the New York Times bestselling author of the Deathstalker and Nightside series comes a new kind of hero in an old kind of war.

All those things you hear about as a kid? The boogeyman under the bed? The creature in the closet? They're for real, people.

Eddie Drood knows they're for real. His family has kept humanity safe from the things that go bump in the night. For ages, they've held back the nightmares, locked the doors, barred the gates, and put righteous boot to monster arse on a nightly basis.

But now Eddie's in trouble. One of his own has convinced the rest of the family that Eddie's become a menace, and that humanity needs to be protected from him. So he's on the run, using every trick in the book, magical and otherwise, hoping he lives long enough to prove his innocence. And he knows how dangerous the Droods can be-because he's one of them

My review

rating: 4 of 5 stars
This is the first book by Green that I have read, though I have quite a few on my TBR shelf. I enjoyed it. I really like the main character and his sense of humor. That's Bond, Shaman Bond! lol For me this book is very tongue in cheek. Lots of James Bondishness. I have never been a James Bond fan and so was put off a little bit, but eventually was able to overlook it and really enjoy the book and the characters. I am looking forward to reading the next book in the series soon.
