URBAN FANTASY REVIEW: Yesterday's Hero - Jonathan Wood

Release Date: 12/10/15
Publisher:  Titan


Another day, another zombie T-Rex to put down. All part of the routine for Arthur Wallace and MI37 - the government department devoted to defending Britain from threats magical, supernatural, extraterrestrial, and generally odd. But a zombie T-Rex is only the first of Arthur's problems, as Russian cyborg wizards threaten his life, and his co-workers threaten his sanity.


OK, so this book has been out quite a while and whilst I’ve read the 2014 reprint, I was more than satisfied with not only the lead character but the humour of Jonathan that splattered the pages with a cracking plotline. Whilst it’s a bit more serious than the original title the reader is treated to a book that has solid prose and some solid dialogue. All round a book that was a thorough joy to spend time with and one that I had an awful lot of fun with.
