    One thought on “Hazardous Goods”

    1. DNF.I just can't get into this. I don't know if its the plot or the pacing, but it's boring.I just tried to start this up after giving it a break for a week, and nothing is memorable.

    2. I usually stick to authors I know, but I joined this little community called "". I can honestly say I am very pleased that I did as I have been introduced to John A Mackie and the life of Donnie Elder.I found the story a little difficult to get into, but it actually developed into a story with a bit of everything.A courier service specialising in delivering goods which are very definitely out of the ordinary. An early mugging and robbery. A drug lab. To top it off some excellent characters.Donni [...]

    3. Good first novel with a likeable protagonist. The Toronto setting adds interest. Unfortunately, the proposed sequel seems far from publication.

    4. John Mackie tells a tale about Donnie Elder who lost a executive position and put his extra money into buying a partnership in Arcane Transport, a successful business transporting magical items whose owner, a friend of the family, is near retirement. Donnie doesn’t really believe in magic, even after he is robbed at gun point on his first day. Then there’s the magical ring that one of his drivers was tricked into putting on and ended up cursed, the eighty-year-old witch that magically threw [...]

    5. The book is written competently enough, but I just couldn't get into it. Maybe it's me and that's really quite possible.It felt like the main characters was too whitebread vanilla and just couldn't hold my interest. The worldbuilding went slowly. One problem I found was that people either knew of the supernatural and thought it was no big deal, or they didn't know, found out and thought it was no big deal.There wasn't much super to go with the natural, if you know what I mean?As I said, it could [...]

    6. This story had an interesting premise but the actual story felt pretty weak. At the start the book seemed like a series of disjointed incidents roughly connected by the heroes job. A plot of sorts did eventually emerge but it was nothing to write home about. A couple of the characters were fun. All-in-all a very average book.

    7. This book is great, even if I didn't win it I would have paid for it. I am going to get the next book in this series as soon as I can.The characters are really well done, this book is filled with loads of excitement. More then once I found myself laughing and sharing why with my wife.
