Thinning the Herd by Adrian Phoenix

I'm not sure if Urban Fantasy as a genre is normally funny or if it is just coincidental with the ones I have read.  This book has it's tongue in it's cheek so deeply I imagine it reaches the ears.   Hal Rupert, an animal control agent, is the main protagonist and his main weapon is his catch pole.  His sidekicks are shape changers and his love interest is a purple hair, black lipstick goth chick.

Phoenix definitely has a strange sense of humor.  She sacrifices hippies and urban chic on the alter of strangeness.   Rupert has a major hero complex and no lack of confidence while being apparently oblivious to the distain he seems to encourage from the common citizens he claims to be defending.

The book has an amusing plot with casual violence.  It was entertaining.

I  recommend.  


This book may have been received free of charge from a publisher or a publicist. That will NEVER have a bearing on my recommendations.
