Read full description of the books:
I had fun reading this story. It didn't grab my attention as I thought it would but it was fun nevertheless. Actually, it was near perfect until near the end.
When you first meet the protagonist, Private Detective John Justin Mallory, you find out that the mob is after him (well, after his double-crossing wife-stealing partner, but they don't know that), his wife left him and he is broke. The thing I loved the most since any mention of cheating in any kind of book ruins the story for me is that he is kind of over it. And both the wife and the partner get the kind of 'respect' they deserve. “And to top it off, the two-timing bastard took my slippers." "Your slippers, Mr. Mallory?" Mallory nodded. “Doreen for the bourbon was a fair trade, but I'm going to miss those slippers. I'd had them for fourteen years.” He paused. “That's a hell of a lot longer than I had Doreen." When an elf appears to hire him, Mallory doesn't believe he is real at first - 'Now, sing your song or dance your dance or do whatever you're going to do, and then make way for the elephants.' The elf problem in short: he was guarding a unicorn and someone stole it. He really needs Mallory to find the animal before the sunrise or his guild would kill him.
Them, or the Grundy.
The job takes Mallory to a completely different Manhattan where goblins, trolls, moving stuffed animals, snow gorgons, the Gnomes of the Subway, ghosts of the Stock Exchange, talking mirrors and gorillas and so many other creatures live. He quickly learns the rules of this weird parallel world and he even finds friends. Enemies too, because this Manhattan is definitely not without its dangers and Mallory is not the only one after the stolen unicorn.
Near the end he has this encounter with the opponent and it is underwhelming. The book continues for a while (Mallory dealing with some other characters and the main item in the story). There are some other issues I had with a couple of comments in the book but they aren't important for this review.
Overall, Stalking the Unicorn is an entertaining story. I'll definitely continue with the series.
