Meet Simon Strong, an immortal detective about to enjoy a night out on the town. He’s planned this date for weeks and tonight is the night.
When Tristan Montague, Simon’s partner and resident cranky mage advises Simon against this course of action, Simon declares his freedom to see whomever he chooses. There’s only one problem. Her name is Michiko and she doesn’t share well.
Join Simon as he attempts to enjoy a pleasant evening, away from magic and angry creatures of the night. Only to find himself on the run as creatures of the night attempt to eliminate him and his date. Will he make it through the evening? Will he survive the Date?
The Date (Montague & Strong Case Files #2.5) Reviews
Less destruction than usual
Wherever Simon and Monty go, chaos follows. Just not the god, this time. I would have given this 5 stars but I kept waiting for Chi to rip Kat's throat out. Either the vampire is far less psychotic than Simon makes her out to be, or the throat ripping takes place later.
We asked for it and Mr. Sanchez delivered in a big way! Monty and Strong just become more enjoyable the more we know about them and The Date is no exception. I'd call it a succulent appetizer for its size if it wasn't sandwiched somewhere in the middle of a series. It is amazing how such a wonderful story can spring from one offhand remark in a previous book. And Mr. Sanchez is, once again, correct. As delightful as this story is, it raises far more questions than it answers. Personally, I can hardly wait to read on to find out what else is in store for Monty and Strong and maybe get some of those answers!
Our snarky, beloved, immortal illustrious Mage's sidekick (HA!) just can't catch a break. He only wanted a couple hours with an old friend, CEO of a family operated and owned company - dinner, some reminiscing, and to warn her about some clients her father had dealings with.
They made it to dinner, but nothing goes quite right for Strong, his hot date, or anyone else on the date of a lifetime. And that makes it highly entertaining, loads of fun to read, witty with never a dull moment, and well worth your time to sit down and read this.
Case file to answer what happened in that Date
Monty and Simon have already appeared in 3 books, starting with Tombyards and Butterflies and No God is Safe which is a Case File which tells us all how the British Mage and American supernatural go-to immortal met and started working together. This case file tells how a Date, that Simon wishes others would forget, actually went and I loved it. Although I read it in the order of being written I'm sure this could be read as an introduction or at any point in the series and, as with all books in the series, is sure to entertain with action and humour.
This is a short story, but just as good as the longer books in this series. It is about how Simon wants to have a nice date without any magic, or mayhem. Yet maybe Monty's words ring a little truth when he tells Simon, he is wearing the suit he can be buried in.
But what does Simon have to worry about? His awful luck of attracting dangerous things? Or the fact that his girlfriend is head of the Dark Council and a tad bit the over jealous type? And so what if a troll shows up...
Funny story and now we know what happened on the date that is referred to in the second Monty and Simon books.
