Gold, Glen David: Carter Beats the Devil (18.04.09)
This long novel took some time getting through. Many chapters are excellent in themselves and the basic story an interesting none though it does get lost in the pyrotechnic display of information about the mechanics of magic. I have read it over a quite lengthy period as the book is too large for reading on the train etc., but it was interesting enough for me to persevere to the end. I don't know if i would have rated it more highly had I read it more immediateoly but I think now - well written and plotted but too diverse.
