The Golem is full of the expected Monty and Simon sarcasm, snips, snark, action, and mayhem. It also marks a growth point in Simon’s understanding and powers. We meet some old friends and a new villain. Peaches helps save the day while adding a new talent, and is suitably rewarded with more meat. Best of all are two hilarious but infuriating new characters who may stick around in future books. And if you like Easter eggs, this book is packed full of them. I had so much fun reading this that I devoured it in one day, I didn’t want to put it down!
In this novel, Monty and Simon have the best chemistry that I’ve read in any of their books. Their relationship has evolved into the perfect best friend, buddy cop, husband wife, odd couple relationship I have ever read. The insane level of snark and banter is incredible. The way they play off of each other is magnificent. Monty even has a sense of humor. Don’t even get me stared on Peaches. Peaches’ entry into any scene is hysterical. This is laugh out loud funny.
The plot is also amazing. It’s not just great writing. We get to see true growth in Simon. We also get to see a side of both Simon and Monty, that I think they didn’t know existed, thanks to a certain cold girl.
The supporting characters are some of the best in the M&S Universe. We get to revisit some of our favorite characters and we get to meet some extremely interesting new characters.
So don’t dawdle, Death should never be kept waiting. Start reading NOW!
Science Fiction cultural movie and tv references were hilariously overflowing in this installment by Orlando Sanchez.
I wonder if each book in the series could stand alone? There seems to be some repetition of introductory character descriptions, but these phrases would also be helpful if there were time gaps in between the reading of each book to remind us of Simon and Tristan compatriots from the previous books.
To try and stop the newly created Golem from destroying New York and it's people both Simon and Monty are going to have to learn to view a few things differently. I definitely enjoyed the snark and dialogue between the characters, along with all the little easter eggs. When I met Bangers and Mash well let's just say I couldn't stop smiling, a few laughs might have slipped out also. Peaches, he's still his adorable, logical self. Seems his spending time with Frank has taught him a few things! Love that Hellhound.
Okay, that’s a cop-out of a review, but really, that says everything that needs saying. This is another fun entry in the series, but then you already knew that.
This time, our heroes get full-on Obi-Wanned, but they manage to save the day, in spite of their handicaps. An interesting new threat to face, though somehow, it didn’t seem as deadly as some of the others.
Any road, it was a great rollercoaster ride, from start to finish. These books are like the bus in Speed. Once they get going, they never slow down. Just buy them and read them, for the love of Mike. Trust me.
