We were first brought into the wonderful world of Sin City with Succubus created by C.S. Anderson; a city where the wonder is never in short supply. Sin City Succubus saw a half human/ half warlock dabbler by the name of Robert Jones thrown into a dimension where werewolves, vampires, warlocks and goblins not only exist but are governed by the Grand Council. Sin City Angels brings angels and gods into the mix, including one angel that you should never betray. I don’t really read this genre much but C.S. Anderson continues to surprise me. In Sin City Angels, we go on another adventure and find ourselves tested with Robert Jones and other characters.
To the readers of the realms of action/adventure and mythical alike, you will enjoy this as much as the next game of Dungeons and Dragons… just minus the dragons. I can’t get into too many details with this one because it’s a lot shorter than Succubus, but be prepared to go through a lot of epic changes. Mr. Anderson combines a great sense of humor, non-stop action, a lot of magic and a bit of violence topped with a major surprise that is heart stopping in the much-anticipated sequel in the dabbler series. Robert Jones is back and something keeps coming after him for the things he has done in the past. But will it be enough to stop him from protecting the one he loves? Pick up a copy of Sin City Angels, book 2 in the Dabbler series today and find out!
The only thing I can say is that book two was too short for my liking, as a fan of the Sin City series; but it does make me anxiously wait to see how far Anderson will take it in the next installment, as he left Angels with a tease of what’s to come. C.S. Anderson is talented in many ways and I know that we will continue to see more magic, more surprises and much more devastation to come in the future of the Sin City books. I look forward to seeing more from Anderson and seeing where Robert’s journey leads to next.

Sin City Succubus had me intrigued from the title itself, if only I knew the magic this tale holds within. Magic has a purpose in the dark fantasy world and then you have the characters that make it whole, the scene immersing them completely. I am glad to say that I had this opportunity to connect with the personalities that are created by Mr. Anderson; the detail and relationships are presented to develop the action, adventure and very realistic fantasy world that lives in Las Vegas. In this world created by C.S Anderson, it is original with very little influence from anything else in my eyes of past imaginings; he combines humor, action, a little bit a violence, and a lot of magic with some mythical creatures, then mixes it all together as a cocktail to serve to the hungry world of dark fantasy and action/adventure fans.
Normally, I watch this type of genre on the television set or play these words in games, so regrettably I have not read more in this genre to compare this dark fantasy adventure to but as I opened the pages and read a little in I realized ‘Wow, this book is incredible. I never in my life read anything like this.’ A dabbler named Robert Jones- a half human/ half warlock- finds himself submerged into a world filled with werewolves, vampires, warlocks, goblins, imps and more, with little protection from his untrained magic or the Grand Council. He will be faced with challenges- going against other who are powerfully skilled in the art of magic on the mean streets of Vegas where you never quite know who- or what- you’ll meet. The way that all the personalities interact with each other is perfect; be it friends, enemies or debts to be re-payed. Experience the world yourself as it comes alive in C.S. Anderson’s story, Sin City Succubus.
C.S. Anderson is a master at building characters and a world filled with magic. Action packed with a little bit of humor brings you a long way in this crazy world. Anderson is creative and brings his writing skills to the world like he has done this for years. I would love to see a world filled of mythical creatures done by him one day; we will wait and see what happens. I will be keeping my eye real close on him, C.S. Anderson has given me a reason to start reading in this particular genre now. Though Sin City Succubus may be the first, it certainly will not be the last that I read from Mr. Anderson- at the end of this fascinating read, it seems as if the story will continue on into a second, Sin City Angels. Knowing there will be more action and adventure with the continuation of this series, excites me to the fullest as I can’t wait to see what level things are taken to next.
