Review of “Roadside Magic”

Roadside Magic (Gallow and Ragged, #2)

Roadside Magic by Lilith Saintcrow

My rating: 3 of 5 stars


A few caveats on my review. First, this is not my usual read. While I like urban fantasy, I like the emphasis on urban more than the fantasy world (think Vaughn’s Kitty Norville more than Peeler’s Jane True). Second, It is the second book and I never read the first. Like much of my reading, I picked it up at my favorite used book store BARBED WIRE BOOKS (https://www.barbedwirebooks.org/) based on the cover art and the tease about fae in a trailer park.

Despite those points, it is a good read and I can see that it would be better if I’d read the first book; however, it is not necessary. Saintcrow fills you in enough that it does not take much to understand the conflicts and issues that were part of the first novel and the ending is fulfilling enough to let this be a stand-alone novel. It does help to understand that there are different types of fae and that they have different powers and weaknesses.
