It’s very different to the Dresden Files style. For a start, it’s not in first-person, so you don’t feel like you are in the head of any specific character, but you get a more rounded view of the other characters. Second, there is no magic, although I guess you could call the furies a type of magic. Third, the books are big. Speaking as a born-again-reader, I’m still a bit daunted by large books.
Despite the obvious differences, I really enjoyed it. I will no doubt start on the second book in the series some time today.
