For centuries they lived amongst us. The frightful and wondrous, the angelic and bloodthirsty. Living in a reality just beyond the Veil, humanity’s myths and legends are caught in a struggle for their very survival—against hunters far more powerful than they are. Into this struggle has stepped a New England lawyer who once wanted to be an actor—a man who both longs for the mortal woman he was to marry and is desperate to rescue the sister who’s been taken hostage. Neither hero nor warrior, Oliver Bascombe now finds himself brandishing a magical sword, walking in the company of a woman who sometimes appears as a fox and a man made of pure ice, and dueling with albino giants and winged killers. For in the world of the Borderkind—and the realms that exist beyond it—Oliver is discovering just how vulnerable are humankind’s myths, the dire consequences of their extinction, and the reason he was chosen to save them.…… (mehr)

Bought this book at a thrift store not knowing is was number 2 in a series. Good story telling but ready to move on to something different. ( )

This was a wonderful book, and I absolutely loved it. I found this one better than the 1st. The 1st book in the beginning was full of a lot of descriptive scenes, which are okay, and needed, but a bit to long for my taste. This 2nd book just dived into it. I felt as each paged turned I was right along with the travelers and what a journey it is. If this is your genre...this series will have you glued to the pages. It is, however, not a book to be read OUT of series order. The 1st being called The Myth Hunters. ( )

I liked this book, but not as much as the first one. Instead of something being resolved, things just kind of keep going in the same manner. Its still very interesting and a good book, and I love the huge variety of mythical creatures he digs up, but since we don't get much of a look at any of them, its a little less interesting than it could be. The ending is a contrived cliffhanger, so hang on for book 3! ( )
