HALLOW POINT by Ari Marmell Out Tomorrow in the UK


Tomorrow, Titan Books publish Ari Marmell‘s HALLOW POINT. The second novel in the Mick Oberon urban fantasy series, here’s the synopsis…

Mick Oberon may look like just another 1930s private detective, but beneath the fedora and the overcoat, he’s got pointy ears and he’s packing a wand. The Spear of Lugh is in Chicago. And everyone, everyone wants it, for it is said that he who carries the spear into battle cannot be defeated. Those chasing it include an agent of the infamous Wild Hunt; a mobster who knows far more about these things than he should; and of course both the Seelie and Unseelie Courts — the very last people PI Mick Oberon would want getting hold of the spear…

Titan Books also published the first novel in the series, HOT LEAD, COLD IRON.

In the meantime, here are some reviews of the first Mick Oberon novel…

‘In this gripping fantastical investigation, Marmell (The Goblin Corps) creates an engaging world and an unlikely hero… The potent mix of gangsters, magic, Fae politics, and a strega on the warpath makes for a ride that never touches the brakes. Marmell expertly maximizes the thrills, leaving the reader with a lingering desire for a magic wand and a glass of warm milk.’Publishers Weekly (Starred Review)

HOT LEAD, COLD IRON is as hard boiled a detective drama as anything written by Dashiell Hammett, Raymond Chandler or Mickey Spillane, and Marmell captures the vernacular of the period wonderfully… if [the sequel] is as fun and entertaining as this one, then Ari Marmell will soon be crowned the foremost purveyor of Macabre Noir.’Starburst

‘There are enough subtle and surprising elements involved in the world to enchant readers, and Oberon is an absolutely delightful protagonist… He has an uncanny way of paring opposing elements – a strong, fast, bold…with stunningly subtle and incredibly well crafted world building elements… It’s a lot of fun, and Marmell is an author I really want to hit it big. He deserves it, and this book shows a lot of his strengths.’Bookworm Blues

‘Fantasy meets period detective-gangster drama… Marmell provides a rollicking take…[The voice] quickly becomes likable, full of grumpy asides and funny turns of phrase.’SFX Magazine
