    1. Moram da priznam da nisam imao velika ocekivanja od ove knjige. Blurb je neko obican i ne previse originalan i sto se same price tice to i nije daleko od istine.Neko je nestao, detektiv je unajmljen da je nadje. in je opasan dasa jakih morala i sa tamno prosloscu itd. Ali da se desava u americi 20tih, vremena Al Kaponea malo vadi stvar. A cinjenica i da je magija prisutna u velikim kolicinama jos vise vadi mast. Narocito posto magija nije BOM BOM cerzije nego vise suptilna gde utice na srecu o m [...]


    2. Hard-boiled detective + the Fae = an interesting first book.When I ran across this title in my public library’s catalog, I was intrigued. Those of you who read my reviews regularly will know that I am a sucker for books that feature Fae characters. I love them! Plus, I am an enormous fan of Raymond Chandler, so this combo was irresistible.I enjoyed Marmell’s take on the Fae. Mick Oberon (yes, he’s related to THAT Oberon) has a penchant for milk, cream when he’s needs something a bit stro [...]


    3. A book like this--film noir to the hilt, urban fantasy, set in 1930s Chicago--depends on the voice, the strength of the narrator, as much as the premise or the bells and whistles of the setting. If the voice falls flat, or the narrator isn't intriguing, none of the rest much matters, no matter how interesting. And Mick Oberon makes a compelling and engaging narrator, so I was hooked. There are echoes or homages to other fiction out there (which is, let's face it, true of almost everything), but [...]


    4. I really enjoyed this book. The setting in 1920's Chicago was a refreshing change of pace for an urban fantasy. I liked how the author used historical figures (not as characters, but as reference points), and period slang to make the setting feel authentic, and not an idealized version of the times. The Otherworld was interesting too, and I like the nature of the relationship the fairies have with humans, and the human realm. It's a slightly different spin, but fits a lot of the old mythology we [...]


    5. This book is a fun ride. It stands apart from other urban fantasy series from first being set in the 30s, and second from its noir roots.Inevitably the comparison to the Dresden Files will come so let's put that to bed. There is some: both are PIs in Chicago and have magic. Any other similarities are because both pull from the genres of Urban Fantasy and Noir. And let me tell you, Hot Lead is so pure detective Noir you could set it on fire and the ashes would spell out Mike Hammer and Sam Spade. [...]


    6. The gumshoe in urban fantasy. Its a magical partnership when done well. Ari Marmell is trying to tap into the Dresden files fan base with his new elf gumshoe mystery, and he almost gets it totally right. Hot Lead, Cold Iron is a good read, with a great setting, mafia and gangsters and some great villains, but there were a couple of things that just annoyed me. Mick Oberon is the gumshoe in question. The setting is 1930s Chicago, a world full of gangsters. Obernon, an elf prince, has left his aes [...]


    7. mybookishways/2014/05/Mick Oberon is a Chicago PI, but he’s no ordinary PI. His weapon of choice, in fact, is a magic wand (a Luchtaine & Goodfellow Model 1592, specifically), and he has a little magic of his own on top of that. In 1932 Chicago, one run by mobsters and their ilk, a little magic is a nice thing to have, but tussling with them isn’t Oberon’s favorite thing to do. However, his landlord is about to lose the building, and it’s the only place that Oberon has ever felt at h [...]



    8. Full review over at Fantasy Book Critic OVERVIEW/ANALYSIS: Hot Lead Cold Iron is the first volume in the Mick Oberon chronicles, however it isn’t Mick's first appearance. That honour goes to the short story “The Purloined Ledger” which appeared in Broken Time Blues: Fantastic Tales in the Roaring '20s, a little over three years ago.This story however does a fantastic job of introducing us to private detective Mick Oberon who lives in 1930s Chicago and does a bang-up job reminding the reade [...]


    9. This is the way to start a series, I mean, wow. Mick Oberon is a P.I. in the rough and tumble days of late-Prohibition-era Chicago. He mixes with the mob, political figures,and other assorted low-lifes, while eking out a living, enough to afford milk, rent and the cheap suits he wears. He can take a beating like nobody's business, and packs a wand rather than rather than a gun. Oh yeah, and he's fae. I've got a mental checklist that I use to evaluate a new (to me) Urban Fantasy: 1. Is there a st [...]


    10. Fairytale noir set in prohibition-era Chicago. Magical tommy guns that double as wands? Crazy amounts of period slang? Magic that doesn't break the world? A story that starts out fast and just keeps moving? Sign me up! Marmell has created a really memorable unique world and set a great story in it.This is not a mystery - you don't get a series of clues that will allow you to deduce who dunnit. Rather, it's an adventure where Mick Oberon, self-exiled aes sidhe and PI, tells you how he found a mob [...]


    11. 1930s detective noir, the Chicago Mob, & Fae, along with plenty of other supernatural creatures. Fast-paced thriller that marks a great new entry into the urban fantasy category. If you are looking for a Sam Spade/Philip Marlowe/Mike Hammer hard-boiled PI with the mystical powers of belonging to the Fae, this is a book not to miss.



    12. 3.5 stars. I really enjoyed this book and I am looking forward to reading more of his stuff. It reminded me a little bit of The Vampire Files.


    13. I was really interested in reading this one due to the Depression-era Chicago setting, and that aspect of the book certainly didn't disappointment. The world-building was a lot more authentic than I expected, and I appreciated the amount of effort that went into making the setting feel legitimate. That being said, I had a few issues:1) While I understand the author's desire to make the era-appropriate jargon realistic, I think the narration was overwhelmed by Oberon's manner of speaking. To the [...]


    14. I like stories about the fae and I really enjoyed reading about them in a different setting than what I am used to. This was a very different setting for me!This is set in 1930's Chicago and it is full of very amusing gangster slang, and many, many nods to black and white Private Detective shows. I liked how Oberon, the main character, "spoke" to the reader as if he was telling the story directly, things like "I should've know then," and "I'll get back to that in a minute." I liked that, it real [...]


    15. This book has generated some strong feelings in other reviews. It was with that knowledge that I plunged ahead and acquired a copy. And, I am happy that I did, but you might not come to a similar conclusion. Will you like the P.I. who is at the center of this story? Mick is a detective just scraping by and, at times, having to work both sides of the street. As the book opens, he is in the midst of a brawl which happened after he was caught trying to get some information in a private office. As [...]


    16. As far as urban fantasy goes, the concept for this new series of magical detectives couldn’t be better. Take the spiritual home of hardboiled pulp fiction – a hard-assed Chicago of the prohibition period, oozing with booze-dealing Italian gangsters and numbnuts thugs driving flivvers – and introduce that time-honoured reluctant hero, a jaded, hard-bitten private eye with a sharp line in snappy dialogue and a withering distaste for worldly weakness. Plonk him in a scruffy downtown basement [...]


    17. I'm not going to write an extensive review, because it has been a while since I finished this book, and over time books dribble out of my memory like an oil leak. However, I do still recall my overall impressions, so I might as well jot them down.I have to admit, I am a sucker for noir - if it's done well. A hard-bitten, no-nonsense, tough-guy detective in a gritty, grey urban setting in the 1930's, 40's or 50's I can't resist. Ari Marmell gets the tone and the attitude and the feel of it spot o [...]


    18. I wish that people did not think every urban fantasy with a male main character has to be compared to the Dresden Files. K.A. Stewart, Benedict Jacka, Ben Aaronovitch, Kevin Hearne, Elliott James, and now Ari Marmell (to name some of my favorites) deserve to be judged on their own merits. I should admit I grew up reading the adventures of Simon Templar, the Toff, Ellery Queen, Solar Pons, and others who embodied or aspired to the hardboiled gumshoe genre. Hot Lead, Cold Iron brought back fond me [...]


    19. I really enjoyed this urban fantasy about a fae detective in Chicago in 1932. It is told in the first person by Mick Oberon who walked away from faerie for reasons he doesn't share with us and who is surviving in Chicago as a private investigator. The mobs are very busy in Chicago and Mick isn't completely excited to work for a mob wife. However, he needs money to save the building where he lives and the mob has the money.Mick is hired by Bianca Ottati to find his daughter. Bianca has come to be [...]


    20. So, the king of the fairies is a player for the Chicago P.D. and is a pretty stroppy guy at that. From the set off with ‘Hot Lead’… you are pretty much thrown in the deep end and it keeps up right the way through. Marmell is a very well regarded writer to me through his work at Wizards of the coast and has proven himself top of the game in crime/fantasy crossover here too. Mick Oberon is one of the best written characters I’ve had the pleasure to discover in recent reading, from his dial [...]


    21. Overwritten in spots, although the faithful and probably overly extreme recreation of the slang of the time was fun. Unfortunately, that did make a few of the anachronisms stand out more starkly. I got the impression the writer didn't quite trust his readers, what with every other word highlighted to make sure we emphasized the prose where he wanted. The melding of noir and urban fantasy was done completely straight, with nary a wink to the audience. The simple lack of postmodern irony was refre [...]


    22. An outstanding premise and book! I wish I could remember where I read about this book, but I am very glad I did. Fantasy, hard-boiled noir, set in the days of Prohibition and Capone. I admit to having Humphrey Bogart's voice narrating in my cranium as I read.Mick Oberon is a PI of the best gritty kind. I love that Ari Marmell took the time to explain sayings and euphemisms in the beginning and fae pronunciations and mobster facts in the back. If one needs a comparison, I'd compare Mick Oberon to [...]


    23. 3.5 stars. 30s PI who is also fae. Marmell uses the old slang, terms and way of speaking which takes a little getting used to, but it adds to the story feel. There are a few info dumps to explain the world, the fae world and our character. Lots of running around, getting beat up, magic slinging and a mean old witch. Mick is hired to do a job, find a changeling after 16 years and there are roadblocks everywhere he goes. In fact, a few of his actions trying to hurdle them will definitely spill int [...]


    24. Mick Oberon may look like just another 1930s private detective, but beneath the fedora and the overcoat, he's got pointy ears and he s packing a wand.This series is a breath of fresh air for the UF genre. Set in 1930's Chicago it could have gone so very wrong, but the author deftly convinces us that our lead, PI Mick Oberon, is indeed, from that era. Mick is funny and kick-ass, to boot. He has a dry, downtrodden wit, that's an absolute joy to read. Action, intrigue, snark, and utterly unique in [...]


    25. OK you ginks, lay your peepers on this tale: a hard-bitten PI in Depression-era Chicago, who also happens to be a royal fae in hiding. Atmospheric in the best noir style, great language that evokes the time wonderfully, and high rolling action.



    26. originally posted at: thebookplank/2014I have been reading the young-adult series, Widdershins Adventure, of Ari Marmell over the last few months and have been enjoying them, though my first book of Ari Marmell that I got introduced to was In Thunder Forged, having finished that I had a close look of his forthcoming books and recently found that he started a brand new Urban Fantasy series called Mick Oberon, set in 1932. When I read through the synopsis and saw the mentioning of changelings, the [...]


    27. This book reads much like Jim Butcher. The main character, and the story itself, are very reminiscent of an old fashioned detective noir black and white film. The storyline is set in 1920’s Chicago, complete with gangsters and molls and private eyes. The main character is an exiled Fae prince named Mick Oberon, a private detective. The story is told primarily by having the main character talk directly to the reader, breaking the ‘Fourth Wall’ in somewhat the same vein as comic character De [...]
