    1. Wow.Just just wow.I'll explain - any experienced Shadowrun fan will tell you that, by and large, most Shadowrun fiction of old isn't that great. There are some truly fantastic books, but most are actually quite middling at best, with a focus on quantity. This was common in many tabletop RPG houses back in the late 80s and 90s - more books, rather than less books with a higher quality.This is not one of those books.To start with, Catalyst have collected and published a truly very high quality set [...]


    2. Absolutely fantastic read, easily the best Shadowrun novel I've read in many years - and a good detective noir novel, to boot


    3. Most of the book isn't a traditional run, but I still enjoyed it. Russell Zimmerman is one of the best of the new crop of Shadowrun authors.


    4. Excellent book, one of the best recent Shadowrun books. I always wanted to see a good to honest detective under the Shadowrun banner, and we finally got one. A lot of interesting characters even if the book is understandably based on Kincaid. The story paces well and I never felt like it was too slow or too fast in the events that were happening. I hope to see more adventures of the paranormal investigator in the future.


    5. Really impressive for the genreBeen playing catch up with Shadowrun lately. Reading some of the newer novels. This is the best one by far. Really captures every element of 2075.



    6. As a Shadowrun-player: I haven't read a lot of their novels so far, but for some reason this a better look into the world of Shadowrun than any of the rule- or background-books could ever give. The everyday-life of a magician is detailed so good and so authentic that you immediately get a much better feeling for Jimmy's hometurf Puyallup in general, non-combat applications of magic in particular and the way otherwordly creatures interact with a distopian world. A must-read for every magic and fa [...]


    7. Shaken tells a story in the life of PI/vigilante/Shadowrunner Jimmy Kinkaid, a near-burnout street mage with an attitude, the mentor to match, and the hots for his ally spirit. This alone all but guarantees I like this book. But it's narrated interestingly, the protagonist is appropriately biased, the book does give him is share of sucker-punches - and I really like the narrative flow, even if it may seem a little slow to some. It's not Michael Bay, it's Fargo. It's a voyage through the decrepit [...]


    8. Great follow up to "Neat." This second (in hopefully large series) installment really fleshes out PI (Paranormal Investigator) James Kincaid by giving us a bit more of his history and his current relationship with the various factions, friends, and opponents he deals with in the beautiful corner of Puyallup he calls home. Unlike other Shadowrun characters, Kincaid is a SINner - and his outlook has been shaped by his time as a cop. He is the unofficial law, making deals, and keeping things from g [...]


    9. It's a very good street-eye view of that particular universe. It's fairly easy to tell that Mr Zimmerman has been playing Shadowrun for a good long while. James Kincaid, the main character is beautifully developed, with a long and detailed backstory, and the book is as much about discovering that, as it is about the problem he's currently having.At the same time, and although Kincaid is an old hand at working the shady side of life - kinda unavoidable if one is living in Puyallup - he's not over [...]


    10. I've been reading a lot of Shadowrun lately, and most of it has been good (though the bad has been REALLY bad). This novel stands out though, because it shows that the Sixth World can actually be flexible and accommodate all kinds of storytelling. It reads like a mystery novel in structure, but the setting manages to make the, by now familiar turns and twists, seem fresh. I really liked this one, even though I took a long time to finish it. I'll look forward to more Jimmy Kincaid stories, and fo [...]


    11. First off, I suggest you read the novella "Neat" before reading this novel.Second, I have to say this has been my favorite Shadowrun novel of the last decade or more, on par with Tom Dowd's "Burning Bright", Stackpole's "Wolf and Raven" and the Nigel Findley novels.Spectacular. Knowing it's the first in a trilogy made me incredibly happy.


    12. One of the better Shadowrun novels. It has a neo-noir feel and well executed prose and plot. A good read!
