Black City Demon is a beautifully conceived fantasy, peopled with believable characters and interesting settings, that never cheats once on the reader. Bravo to Richard A. Knaak!”
—Five-time Hugo winner Mike Resnick


“There’s a lot to digest in this fast-paced, unpredictable world with a surprisingly well-developed cast of characters, including a lovable shapeshifter, an honest detective in a dishonest city, feirie royalty, and a kelpie made of Lake Michigan waters. Because of many resemblances to Jim Butcher’s Dresden Files, urban fantasy fans will be hoping for more from Nick Medea.” —Booklist


Black City Saint is jam-packed with awesome — cursed Roman emperors, incorporeal dragons, paranormal detectives, a shapeshifter from the Feirie realm trapped inside a dog’s body, and one very tormented unsaintly Christian saint — all set in prohibition-era Chicago. Knaak’s latest is fast-paced and funny, frightening and more than a little fiendish, a brilliant mash-up of Ghostbusters, The Da Vinci Code, and the ancient story of St. George and the Dragon.”

–Brian Staveley, author of The Emperor’s Blades

Black City Saint is first-rate urban fantasy. Richard A. Knaak has mixed myth with real-world history to create a fast-paced, unpredictable story filled with intriguing characters, terrifying monsters, and sinister magic. Readers in search of the next Harry Dresden should join Nick Medea on what is sure to be the first of many adventures.”

–Richard Lee Byers, author of The Reaver, Blind God’s Bluff, and Dissolution
