Gobbelino London & A Complication of Unicorns (Gobbelino London, PI #3)

By Kim M. Watt

Rating: 4 stars

The third book of Gobbelino and Callum’s adventures starts with a mini-war between imps and pixies in the duo’s office, and never lets up the pace after that. This one sees some of Callum’s past come back to haunt him, as he and Gobs are asked by and old friend to find England’s last unicorn herd. Callum’s past has been a bit of a mystery up until now. We knew that when Gobs found him, he was pretty messed up on drugs. This goes into that back story and shows us how he ended up in that situation, as well as introducing some of his family, who are not fun people, and you can see why Callum wanted to get out.

Gobbelino is a fun narrator (even if I’m more a dog person than a cat one) with a habit of getting aphorisms wrong, in the cutest way, and using vegetables as insults (which makes sense from a cat point of view, I guess). I’m impressed with their ability to both get into and out of difficult situations. I’m sure that there will be more of those to come, and I look forward to the next book in the series.
