Official Summary: “Chaos reigns around the world. Strange creatures, accorded the title “Phantom Ninjas” by the media, are leaping off tall buildings and somersaulting back up without any scratch – and then disappear. There follows more spontaneous acts of magic, confounding the world. Who – or what – is responsible? In the middle of the mystery arrives Detective Hetfield, a private investigator just recently released from the FBI due to an on-the-job injury. Hetfield, accustomed to fame as a star witness in the murder trial of a beloved actress, uses the media to put forward the theory that a person of extraordinary magical powers is behind all the incidents, and labels him Dr. Magic. Hetfield gets much more than what he bargained for when that powerful being does exist – in the form of a young man long disillusioned with his past – and cruelly takes him up on his offer.
For lovers of light-hearted and fun novels involving magic.” – Goodreads
Review: I liked how different and unique it was. The story was very fresh and different which made it a joy to read. The way the magic was implemented was extremely well done, it was done very subtly and fitted in really well. The characters were all grey too, with their own moral and way of doing things.
The relationship that was built was a nice change too. It wasn’t I need to find out who this guy is to arrest him and get more fame. It was more I need to figure out this person, what makes him tick. Why he does what he does, in order to help him.
