Many fans thought that Salvatore himself had made this decision, but it was actually Randy Stradley , the then-editor at Dark Horse Comics. Hama created the military characters and plots, and Salvatore covered the monster characters. In , Wizards of the Coast announced a new deal with Salvatore to write six more books featuring Drizzt the dark elf. The books were released between and CDS books commissioned him to edit a four book series based on the interactive online EverQuest game.
Salvatore was hired as creative director for upstart game developer 38 Studios , which was owned by former baseball player Curt Schilling. He wrote the dialogue and created a backstory spanning ten thousand years for the fantasy game Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning , which was released in February ,  and sold over one million units. Maybe he made a couple of bad business decisions He's lying in the gutter and you want me to kick him in the head?

Sep 17, Ami rated it really liked it Shelves: mm-novella , mm-mystery-suspense-thriller. Paranormal is probably my favorite series from Lou Harper, which might be influenced by the mystery fan in me.
I enjoyed the adventure of Jon and Leander, and the whole psychic side of Leander just added the fun. This novella is a nice surprise -- the previous L. Paranormal book, Dead in the Desert was released in -- especially since I haven't heard Lou Harper planning to continue. The mystery in this one is loosely related to Dead in the Desert although you can still read this as st L. The mystery in this one is loosely related to Dead in the Desert although you can still read this as stand-alone. In Dead in the Desert , a child's remains were discovered and the detective was asking Leander to help identify the body.
Back then, Leander refused. However, in this one, it turned out that Leander finally decided to help Detective Cora. For the first time after two books , the story was solely written from Leander's POV Leander is adorable!! I also loved how Leander dealing with his significant other, Jon the Grumpy Bear. Those moments were just too cute!! The mystery is good as well. Leander seems to be more 'involved' in sleuthing this time, which I appreciated.
Of course it made Jon and Detective Cora crazy but it also provided some goodness when Jon being protective of his Leander. Yep, satisfying read. View 2 comments. Mar 15, Daniel added it Shelves: mm , mystery , psychic. I'm gonna not rate this, cuz I'm the new nicer, less snarky me. And really, maybe I just wasn't in the right frame of mind for this right now. I mean, I enjoyed the previous installments in the series.
I thought I wanted a happy comfort read and narrowed it down to a reread of Megan Derr's Rapier Brothers, or this. I've always enjoyed Lou Harper's stuff, it's got the mystery angle, and I haven't read it before. I already read two of them ffs. The premise involves a psychic pet detective working with the police. What could possibly be harder to take seriously?
Our normally solid Watson has been downgraded to "grumpy bear" who stands in the background pouting, and occasionally rushes in to play mother and kiss Leander's boo-boo when Leander inevitably gets injured derping his way along through a serial killer investigation, or just looks slightly tired.

Paranormal series, takes place a few months after the closing of Dead in the Desert.
At the request of Detective Cora Bennet, Leander Thorne is trying to figure out who might have killed the young child found in the desert in the previous book. Undaunted and still curious, Lea rhymes with tea convinces his boyfriend Jon to help him do a little off-the-book detecting. Not that he is supposed to be doing any on-the-book detecting either.
In fact, everyone—except maybe Lea himself—would rather he leave the detecting to, well, the detectives. Unlike the other books in this series, where the pov rest solely with Jon, this book is told from the perspective of Lea. It was really cool to finally see his side of things. Having only seen Lea as Jon sees Lea or, I guess, Andy as Jon calls him , we have been left with a somewhat unfinished picture of who this book-obsessed psychic really is.
And I so giggled every time he referred to Jon as Grumpy Bear. Seeing the more playful side of their relationship was kinda cool and really added to the overall sense of who they were together as well as apart. I also loved the mystery in this book. It was a bit more cohesive here than in the previous stories—where it seemed like Jon and Lea were just floating along with events instead of pushing the story themselves—and the change really helped in the overall feel of the story.
The whodunnit was a bit simple, but the overall case and the progression through it was a real blast to read. The secondary characters really worked well in their parts as well. Hopefully this is not the last in the series because there is so much more I want to know about these two. As it stands, though, this book and the entire series to date is a favorite part of my reread pile.

Jan 10, Teri rated it really liked it Shelves: teri-kindle-lendable. Love this series! I adore these and was super excited when this came out. I like the relationship with Jon, though sometimes I wish it was a bit I like that even though there are murders and stuff, these stories are not overly angsty.
I did have the killer pegged pretty early but I still enjoyed and hope there are more to come!

And it's not disappointed. This time we get to read from Leander's POV for a change. The cast got switch a bit too. As view spoiler [Cora became the sole police contact in this book. Not to mention commiserating with Jon about how troublesome Leander can be. The m The long await sequel in the series. The mystery part felt somewhat slow but it was appropriate. Leander wasn't on police force after all. The events in this book do take it's time to resolve, as it would be in real life.
There is one point that I felt Leander should have recognized right away. I felt as though Leander had the experience of touching another psychic and have similar reaction before. Even though Leander and Jon were discussing about it afterward. Interestingly, Leander seems to view spoiler [channel? Jon's rage?
By doing so he save himself from almost getting kill. I wonder if this new thing will also come up in the next book. But props to Ms. Harper, they did talked it out a little before went back to the default problem solving method, sex. Also, view spoiler [a single paragraph epilogue??? I need more damn it!! This is still a very enjoyable read. Almost like armchair mystery but with really sick crime. From the way the story was told, it is clear that this must be written from Leander's POV.

The mystery was good, writing was excellent. I love these books. May 07, Teal rated it really liked it Shelves: crime-mystery-thriller , fiction , series , sff , reviewed , lendable , read-in , ebook , own , m-m. Sweet but not sappy. A nice sprinkling of humor to leaven the serious stuff -- in this case, investigating a decades-old unsolved murder. Unlike the previous books in the series, this one is told from Leander's POV.
He's a geeky goofball with a sunny outlook and a propensity for dropping sly Doctor Who references. He and Jon are an endearing couple of the opposites-attract variety. Jon had an infuriating habit of hoarding and hiding his troubles, as if they were a pile of gold. If you liked the other LA Paranormal books, this one is a sure bet. Stiles Auto Rifleman.
