Thin Air is a great book. Some complain about falling into cliche in the series, and this book in particular, but most good stories are built upon certain models, boy meets girl, good vs evil, there are certain archetypes that EVERY good story uses, otherwise it would not have any appeal to the reader. would you really want to read a story that was just "Harry went to work again, collected his paycheck, and went home...just another day in the boring life of Harry..."? or did that story get better when Harry met Sally, or the even better version where Harry met Murphy, then they kicked some a**? *this is just an example, not an endorsement of any particular story ;)
Unlike some reviewers, I don't downgrade the book as compared to previous books in the series, I compare it to fantasy books in general, and it is still 5 stars. If you want unlimited, flowing and gushing praise, read another review, I'm just going to tell you it's worth reading if you like contemporary fantasy and urban fantasy. However, don't start with this book, go back and start with the first in the series, Ill Wind, or you might be lost and/or confused.
This series is excellent. It takes a well written series to interest me and convince me to spend my hard-earned dollars to invest in multiple books. I have found this book, and this series, worth it.
The book isn't exactly challenging mentally, but most people buy books for the entertaining story, and you will find it here!
