Into the Wild

Read The Year of the Knife Online Free - Agent -Sully- Sullivan is one of the top cops in the Imperial Bureau of Investigation. A veteran witch of the British Empire who isn't afraid to use her magical skills to crack a case. But Sully might need more than a good education and raw power to stop the string of grisly murders that have been springing up across the American Colonies. Every one of them marked by the same chilling calling card, a warning in the form of a legion of voices screaming out through the killers' mouths: -It IS tHe YEAr oF the KNife.-

Sully's investigation will drag her away from the comforts of home in New Amsterdam, the beautiful but useless hyacinth macaw that used to be her boss, and the loving arms of her undead girlfriend, in a thrilling race against time, demonic forces and a shadowy conspiracy that will do anything to keep its hold on power and ensure that Sully takes their secrets to her grave, as soon as possible.

G.D. Penman's imaginative The Year of the Knife is a fun, fast-paced urban fantasy mystery with an engaging set of characters, most notably Agent Sully of the Imperial Bureau of Investigation.

With it being almost Halloween, I have been craving some paranormal stories. When I saw this ARC, I was instantly interested. This is available as a Read Now option on Netgalley, so I grabbed it immediately. I am not familiar with this author, so I was not sure what to expect. Luckily, he writes...

**3.5 stars** HEY EVERYONE! This is my first ARC off of Netgalley, so I am super excited about that. This review is my honest opinion. I'm so glad I really enjoyed my first ARC, it would have sucked indeed if I hated it. It was not perfect but it was definitely an enjoyable, fast paced paranormal...

The Year of the Knife is definitely a unique, fun, and fast-paced urban fantasy that will have you falling madly in love with Agent Sully. She has a certain spark that has nothing to do with her mad magic skills, although those are wickedly awesome. She does come across as completely abrasive and...

The world in, The Year Of The Knife, is one that the good guys and the bad guys are apt to be magicians with contingencies in place if the bad guy happens to be a demon to boot. Female protagonist, Agent "Sully" Sullivan, is a witch in the, male dominated, Imperial Bureau of Investigation. But in...

This review originally appeared on BrizzleLass Books. The Year of the Knife puts Sully, an Agent at the Imperial Bureau of Investigation (IBI) at the centre of a story involving magic, a world which is unrecognisable to our eyes with the British Empire ruling strong, Europe a quivering wreck over...

I would describe this book as a mystery novel set in a magical alternate Earth. You could say it is magical realism. The Earth that this book is set in is not quite our Earth. Even though the book is set in 2015, in this world the city of New Amsterdam is a colony of the British Empire, and the m...

This was an EXCELLENT find... It vaguely reminded me in bits of Ben Aaronovitch's Rivers of London series, with a mystery at the heart of a magical alt-world - but the mystery in this one was handled even better than Aaronovitch's often are (and I *really* like his books), which made it even more...
