Somewhere between a full length story and a novella, Among the Living introduces us to Victor Bayne, a 5th level medium who works as a police officer. Oh, he's also a bit of an insecure mess. But he's an endearing mess even if he sometimes over medicates to drown out the voices of the dead who always seem to pop up to chat at inconvenient moments.Victor is more capable and competent than he believes and that made him an interesting character for me. The surrounding characters are well developed and I hope that they continue to surround the cases Victor works. I also liked the mix of procedural and personal and the hot romance on the side with Vic's co-worker Jacob didn't hurt either.
Looking forward to reading more!
