Dragon Noir is a work of urban fantasy and historical fiction set in the 1920s and penned by author Daniel J Moylan as part of the Dragon Cycles series. In the grisly yet exciting city of New Amsterdam, the twenties are roaring and there is literally magic in the air. Although Victor Quinn is a prominent warlock, he keeps his head down and works as a noir-style detective on the darkest streets of the city. But when a missing person case tips the balance of all he’s been able to keep level so far, Victor finds himself in too deep and changing within his very bones.
This is an exciting and compelling noir read for mystery and magic fans of all ages, bringing the world of noir detective fiction into a new light by fusing it with the modern urban fantasy genre. The atmosphere of NA in the '20s paints a backdrop of suspense, glamour, crime, and mystery for the story to take place, and all of author Daniel J Moylan’s plot elements are well considered and well paced to give the story a true page-turning quality. The character development focuses heavily on our central figure Victor, allowing us a deep insight into the detective mind, but also the emotional journey of magical transformation which he undergoes. Equally thrilling in atmosphere, characterization, and plot, Dragon Noir promises to be a slick and charismatic opening to a truly exciting new series, and I’d highly recommend it to both fantasy fans and noir crime readers. I absolutely loved this book. Great job.
