Publisher Description

Sharp, sarcastic, and efficiently lethal, John Charming would feel right at home having drinks with Dean Winchester and Harry Dresden. If you're looking for a new urban fantasy series to pick up, CHARMING is a guaranteed page-turner.

John Charming isn't your average Prince...
He comes from a line of Charmings -- an illustrious family of dragon slayers, witch-finders and killers dating back to before the fall of Rome. Trained by a modern day version of the Knights Templar, monster hunters who have updated their methods from chain mail and crossbows to Kevlar and shotguns, John Charming was one of the best--until a curse made him one of the abominations the Knights were sworn to hunt.
That was a lifetime ago. Now, John tends bar under an assumed name in rural Virginia and leads a peaceful, quiet life. That is, until a vampire and a blonde walked into his bar...

CHARMING is the first novel in a new urban fantasy series which gives a new twist to the Prince Charming tale.

Clever but awkward

This is an entertaining read. Very clever idea and the writing style is reminiscent of Piers Anthony, but isn't quite there. The awkward first person commentary disrupts the flow of what is otherwise engaging dialogue and action. You might find the reading a bit awkward, but the story line is solid and we can look forward to James' future efforts. Worth a read.

A worthy read. You will not be disappointed.

Un-engaging voice

Interesting idea, but it reads like the dairy if a lazy narcissist. Given the main character, that might have been intentional.
