There's finally an excerpt from the first chapter on the publisher's website. Just the beginning of the first chapter, not very representative of the whole book (I would have chosen the bit on the pier personally). For those of you on the fence - and there must be a number due to the low chatter about it *stern look* - go check it out!

Live and Let Drood Excerpt

I'm amazed that no one's commented on Crow Lee yet?

Thought it was a bit cheap, to be honest. I've read too many books where Magic(k) wannabes call themselves Crowley to think more than just "oh" when I read it. Still, pretty good book overall. Be interesting to see whether the new organisation will lead to a different writing style.

I was thinking more of his description...

Maybe everyone here's too young.

I haven't read it yet.

But, going on the name, alone, I have to wonder if he looks like Brandon Lee (The Crow).

Spoilers, sweetie! :D

No, he's described as a very large man, heavy with his sins. I got the impression he probably smirked while he talked, and had a medium to high pitch voice.

He was a good villain. And who knows, maybe still is ;)

Seriously, NO ONE read Crow Lee's description when Eddie and Molly met him for the first time at the club and didn't think, 'That's .....'

The youth of today... exit left shaking head sadly...
