When Casimir reaches Brightgate, he isn’t sure what to expect from the City of Monsters, though he’s a monster himself. He definitely doesn’t anticipate being attacked mere moments after arriving—or that he’d be rescued by Mikki, the city’s rough-edged guardian angel.
He gets another unpleasant surprise in the form of ex-lover Jared, who instead of talking responds with violence, dead-set on exacting vengeance for the events that drove them apart. Given the way his visit is going, about the only thing Casimir is sure of is that the City of Monsters could very well be where he dies.
I like Brightgate. Seemed like an interesting place to live in minus the flesh-melting slugs. You get to meet a variety of monsters, humans and demons so it never gets dull. There’s Jewel Box where you can play out your fantasies. Just play nice and don’t forget to greet the snow maiden. Yeah, it’s a good town.
3 Stars – not exactly setting my world on fire but I liked it
