“Black City Saint is a tale of a dragon slain by an ancient spear, its soul living inside Nick Medea.  Nick himself is a dead guy who isn’t dead in a city overrun by gangsters.  You get a vibe directly out of Sin City, but it’s the 1920s Chicago in Richard Knaak’s action-packed Urban Fantasy Noir where the Fairie and Human worlds collide.”

In Knaak’s entertaining urban fantasy, set in Chicago about 50 years after the Great Fire, Nick Medea, aka Saint George, guards the Gate between the human world and the land of Feirie and does some ghostbusting on the side. When Nick meets Claryce Simone, the most recent incarnation of his long-ago love Cleolinda, she leads him to William Delke, a powerful man who is much more than he seems. Soon Nick is dodging Delke’s goons and creepy creatures from the realm called the Wyld while trying to keep the Gate from collapsing altogether. The 1920s Chicago setting is nifty, and it’s hard not to like Nick. This capable hero shares his body and consciousness with a dragon he slew centuries ago, whose powers he can call on. Nick’s shape-shifter sidekick, Fetch, is irresistible...Nick’s adventures are fast-paced and fun, and urban fantasy fans will enjoy the inventive setting.
