THE FINDER OF THE LUCKY DEVIL is probably my favorite discovery of 2018. I love it when a new author, especially a self-published one, manages to impress me. This novel is probably the best urban fantasy I've managed to read since the last of the Dresden Files and the early Mercedes Thompson novels. It's not a genre breaker ans follows a lot of familiar tropes but it does them well, has likable characters, creates a believable world, and sets up the sequels without flubbing anything. I could easily believe this is a book I'd find on the shelves of a bookstore and wouldn't have any trouble believing it had been released by one of the larger publishers.
