What if the Dresden Files were about a ruthless gunslinger? That’s sort of what I think about Damoren. This is unfair to the author as the character of Matt Hollis isn’t all that similar to Harry. He’s not a pop cultured badass, for example, but a grizzled veteran with a dozen years of demon hunting. The book does make me think of the Dresden Files, though, and Stephen King’s Dark Tower to some extent. If for no other reason there’s not that many demon-hunting gunslingers around.
