Flex by Ferrett Steinmetz – Review [Lord of the Night]

Definitely a cover that grabs your attention, it did mine.

Lord of the Night reviews the stunning urban fantasy debut novel Flex by Ferrett Steinmetz.

“A novel that is 50% Breaking Bad and 50% Dresden Files, and 100% awesome! Yet at no point does it feel derivative or anything less than a unique take on magic and wizards. A must-read for any fans of urban fantasy or anyone whose looking for a story that is both exciting and entertaining on every page.” – Lord of the Night @ The Founding Fields
