    1. Wow, usually after a couple of books things start repeating, a formula has been established and the author starts "painting by numbers". But this book is not just another urban fantasy procedural thriller. This story goes to a bit of a darker place, but it still keeps its soul which very few works of fiction seem to be able to do lately.One thing that does remain the same is the main character's wit and humor which helps both the character and the audience weather some of the horrors we go throu [...]

    2. God I love this book.I know it’s absurd, and insane, and the characters survive things that simply cannot be survived.But I still love it.I love the characters, and the action, and the humor, and the real emotions in the midst of all the impossible madness that is eternally happening around them. I love huge, impossible, ridiculous situations that defy science and sometimes imagination. I love the writing that beautifully adds humor to tension and vice versa. I love the ragtag group of misfits [...]

    3. An absolutely amazing and enjoyable story to read. This book has it all fun, horror, love, hate, good, evil I think you get the point. This was a true pleasure to read and I do so hope to read more in the future. The characters do go threw the ringer and back again. The thing is are they the good guys or the bad guys you have to read this book and find out for your self my thanks to the author Jonathan Wood for the privilege and the true pleasure of reading this wonderful book. A true piece of l [...]

    4. Anyone who has read The Qwillery for a while knows that I am a fan of Jonathan Wood's Arthur Wallace/No Hero series, which starts with No Hero, continues with Yesterday's Hero and fortunately does not conclude with Anti-Hero. (Look for Broken Hero in October 2015).Anti-Hero starts with the most unusual funeral I've read about in a novel ever. The MI37 team - Arthur, Felicity, Kayla, and Tabitha - are at the funeral for Clyde (well a version of Clyde) when all hell breaks lose. Someone is trying [...]

    5. This is the third in the series about fictional British Intelligence Department MI37, which fights supernatural danger and saves the world on a regular basis. Arthur Wallace, our narrator, his girlfriend and supervisor Felicity, sword-wielding, super-soldier Kayla, magician with code Tabitha (also the girlfriend of the disembodied, but digital thaumaturge Clyde) work together in this story to fight the evil Clyde version 2.0 who wants to wipe out humanity as the logical outcome of protecting the [...]

    6. I give this a 3.5, somewhere between "I liked this" and "I really liked this."So I actually finished this a couple months ago by now. It's another fun read, just slightly outside my preferred zone I guess. I enjoyed the magic/tech elements of Yesterday's Hero much more than the strange biological, maybe Lovecraft-inspired stuff here. And I know that's an odd statement considering the alien creature villains of the first book. Great action-packed opening. I'm enjoying that these first three books [...]

    7. Cathartic, all this saving-the-world-when-everything's-against-you business. Super intense and emotional, this one had a stronger questioning of morality, good vs evil, sacrifice, and heroism than in the last book. All that deep crap, it was really good. Also character development, very noice. (view spoiler)[ CLYDE RETURNS. THAT LAST PAGE MADE ME SO HAPPY. BUT HOW COULD YOU KILL OFF MY FAVOURITE CHARACTER WINSTON THE TREE, JONATHAN WOOD?! I REFUSE TO BELIEVE IT. I WON'T. (hide spoiler)]

    8. There's not much I can say here that others have. I really love the world where Arthur Wallace and the MI6 crew inhabit. Hunting down oddities, fighting absurd creatures and making even more absurd friends. Get on board with this series. It's a great read with just the right balance of quirky humour, action and complicated relationships. Also magic, and crazy pseudo-fringe-science stuff going on.

    9. As an author, I hate it when I read a book by someone as talented as Jonathan Wood. And I love it. So the Arthur Wallace series is a mixed bag of emotions for me. On one hand I am enthralled, amused, horrified and delighted and on the other envious, jealous and sad at his deft storytelling abilities. There are a few authors I wholeheartedly recommend and Jonathan Wood is one. Keep writing, Jon, I'll keep readingd redouble my efforts to try to match the frenetic, humorous pace you've set.

    10. Another great book! I can't wait for the next in the series.Arthur Wallace ranks up there, in my mind, with the likes of Harry Dresden and John Corey (two of my favourite literary characters).Jonathan Wood's work is wildly entertaining, fast-paced, and hilarious.This was one of those books that I couldn't wait to finish but didn't want to end.
