The Menagerie by Christopher Golden and Thomas E. Sniegoski

Attention fans of X-Men and The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen:

Read The Menagerie series by Christopher Golden and Thomas E. Sniegoski. Read it now.

The Menagerie is made up of legendary characters, each with his or her own powers and mystical, mythical origins. Christopher Golden and Thomas E. Sniegoski have taken various characters well-known from literature and mythology and made them their own. Eve is not only what readers assume she is, but also a vampire. She is a ferocious female who takes no prisoners - and happens to have a keen fashion sense. Ceridwen is elemental and strong, but vastly different from Eve in her speech and in her approach to situations. Doyle is intelligent and powerful but also has human traits and flaws, making him more believable and likable than the leaders of some other series.

The Nimble Man starts the series off with a bang. It serves as a great introduction to the characters and their histories. This genre-blender is sure to please fans of fantasy, science fiction, and mystery stories alike. The writing is rich in description, placing the reader right in the middle of the action sequences. The third person narrative permits the reader to get into the heads of these widely different characters, ranging from the immortal shapeshifter Clay to the confused changeling teenager Danny, from the specter of Dr. Graves to the shadowy hobgoblin (and chauffeur) Squire.

The story continues in Tears of the Furies, which dives head-first into Greek mythology; Stones Unturned, which follows Danny's journey closely; and Crashing Paradise, which sheds more light on the past and present of the lady Eve.

Once again, Golden and Sniegoski have conspired to create an action-packed story that weaves classic mythology together with intrigue and suspense. I highly recommend this series, and I'm so glad that they have been republished so they can grab a whole new crop of readers!
