A series of short stories set in the Negotiator universe that help to give context to the events of that trilogy by expanding on Janx’s and Eliseo Daisani’s backstories. I am really glad that the stories focus mostly on those two rather than Margrit (the main character from the trilogy) because honestly I was really tired of her by the end of it. And Janx was my favourite character (I may have a weakness for dragons). I think that weakness for dragons coupled with my completist nature are the only reasons I finished that trilogy in the first place (urban fantasy romances aren’t usually my cup of tea).
My favourite story was probably ‘Chicago Bang Bang’ where Janx had taken on a role as one of the “good guys” as a gumshoe private eye.
I wasn’t originally going to count this one towards the ’20 Books of Summer’ since I started it earlier, but I figured what the heck since I was finishing in the time frame. So I’m going to count it as my ‘Fantasy’ book for the bingo.
