    1. No Deadly Thing by Tiger Gray is the author’s debut novel and the second book in the Twisted Tree series published by Hard Limits Press. The story is set in the American Pacific Northwest and the author fuses the tenets of good and evil of the ancient Zoroastrian religion and philosophy with the theme of environmental contamination to write an elaborate urban fantasy tale that also interweaves strong elements of action/adventure and mystery. The writing is refined and textured and well serves [...]


    2. No Deadly Thing is a thrilling take on urban fantasy. The characters are easy to like, or at least become attached to, and the plot itself is well rounded and well researched. Things start out with what seems to be your standard discovery-of-powers, then quickly devolve into urban warfare with mundane humanity caught in the middle. Romance is present, but secondary to a story that pulls no punches whatsoever.The only issue I had was a sort of glossing over of certain plot stages. Events would be [...]


    3. Tiger Gray is not afraid to let you see the damage.The story, while being an overarching epic, is primarily driven by its characters, all of whom are self-aware and influenced by their own histories. Histories which can be ugly, and painful. Everyone has made decisions they regret. Everyone has something to hide. Everyone hopes that they’re doing the right thing. I like that I can see the characters struggling to be better than they are, fighting their own fears, fighting their own shame, thei [...]


    4. Recently, I’ve been on an indie author binge. After winning a free copy of a book a while back, I decided to give more indies a chance. Typically, the results have been very mixed. Either really good, or horribly bad. I find it fitting that the latest indie I have come across has managed to tick both sides of the spectrum with resounding force, though the bad isn’t quite the BAD I’ve read elsewhere.No Deadly Thing is a fantasy novel that incorporates religious themes and tones to create a [...]


    5. 3.5 stars/A Writer to WatchNo Deadly Thing is a unique urban fantasy that brings Middle Eastern mythology, an exploration of m/m sexuality, and a military element to the genre.WHAT I LOVED: • Sharp dialogue that immediately conveyed the voices and frank military camaraderie of the main characters Ashrinn and Malkai. The everyman lingo snaps and I laughed outright more than once at their repartee. It’s clear that Tiger Gray knows these characters inside and out.Ex. “Oh, excuse me for having [...]


    6. Today, I am reviewing the Urban Fantasy/Paranormal story No Deadly Thing by Tiger Gray. This is an action-packed, fast-moving novel that tells a compelling tale, but maybe tries to do too much in too little space. Ashrinn must fight against an evil, corrupting cult using the magic in his world that he isn’t, at first, aware of, but which he learns permeates every aspect of his life—including his wife, a fire mage with a terrible secret; and his neighbor and squadmate who is married to a Fae [...]


    7. Two paladins discover their true nature and experience a sexual awakening in the middle of a battle for good and evil.At least, that's the blurb I would have preferred.I'm usually a speed reader, but No Deadly Thing took me awhile longer than usual.I loved the ideas. The mythology is well-researched, the characters well developed with emotional depth, crisp entertaining dialogue, and a magical universe that's explained logically. My reading enjoyment, however, was sporadic at best.A lot of incon [...]


    8. The novel was a quick read-- the prose style is taut and flows quickly, and the characters are intimately drawn. It weaves together action, magic, and mystery with the subtle inner conflicts of the characters. The mythology and religion which underpins the action is handled with nuance and detail which speaks to a high level of research, and the reader is allowed a window into the main character's cultural experience. Highly recommended for those who like their action-adventure taken up a level [...]

    10. I won a free copy from the First Reads Giveaway Program and think that it interesting. I would recommend it to everyone.


    11. 3.75/5Ashrinn Pinecroft is an ex-Special Ops soldier who discovers that he has the ability to channel the Divine and swiftly finds himself heading a supernatural military order designed to combat the evil and corruption in the world.I want to start by saying that I enjoyed this book, particularly the characterization, and that I would recommend this book to fans of Contemporary Fantasy and Indie Authors, as well as anyone who loves gut-wrenching tragedy in their stories.However, I had a lot of d [...]


    12. There is just too much of this book to summarise – Ashrinn, an ex-special forces soldier returns, injured from Iraq and discovers a whole new magical world, powers he never imagined, his own personal connection to the divine and, above all, a purpose. A purpose to save not just his home, not even just the magical community – but the entire world. And in the process find his own personal family life shook to the core.That is such a brief and pared down summary of the vastness that happens in [...]


    13. I read this book after winning it in a giveaway. Though I felt the book had an interesting concept, it didn't really feel like it came together. Seemed like the author kind of threw a lot of things on the wall to see what stuck, but most of it didn't. My biggest gripe though was large chunks of time were passed over leaving me feeling pretty disoriented and pulling me away from the story. Though the author tries to fill you in, going from calmness into major action, back to somewhat calmness is [...]
