Author Peter McLean is the son of an English teacher and a bank manager. He was born in the year 1972 in London. Peter attended school in Norwich Cathedral’s shadow, a place where he would spend most of his time making stories up.

This was probably the thing he was the best at by the time he left school, along with the Taoist kung fu he started studying when he was thirteen years old. Peter grew up in Norwich’s alternative scene, where he alternated between studying practical magic and martial arts and spending time in dingy nightclubs.

Peter has grown up a little, if not too much, and, at one time, worked for a major American multinational company in corporate data center outsourcing, a job he held for twenty-five years. Peter still makes up stories, something he is able to make a living at, and is now married to Diane.

He writes the “Burned Man” series and the “War for the Rose Throne”. Peter also contributes to the “Warhammer 40,000” series of novels. His work is from the genres of science fiction, urban fantasy, and fantasy.

“Drake” is the first novel in the “The Burned Man” series, which was released in the year 2014. Don Drake, a hit man, owes a gambling debt to a demon. He is required to do one more assassination to clear his debt, and he unknowingly kills a kid and brings the Furies of Greek myth down on himself.

He is rescued by Trixie, who is an almost fallen angel. With her help, along with the help of his magical accomplice The Burned Man (an imprisoned archdemon) have to deal with Lucifer himself. The entire time he battles against a powerful evil magician.

Don has to foil Lucifer’s plans to finish off Trixie’s fall and save her very soul. The whole time, he prevents the Burned Man from breaking out of captivity and wreaking all kinds of havoc on the entire world.

The book is noirish, quick, witty, and filled with humor. Drake’s presentation and his voice is well done, making you really feel like you are getting inside his mind. He is no hero and has his flaws, yet you cannot help but like the guy the entire time. The book is a breeze to read and is exciting from the beginning to the end.

“Dominion” is the second novel in the “The Burned Man” series, which was released in the year 2016. Inside the tunnels deep underneath London, all of the Earth Elementals are dying.

Hunted by something they just know as the Rotman, the Elementals have got no one trustworthy they can go to for help. That is where Don Drake, a semi-reformed hitman and diabolist and Trixie, the almost fallen angel come in.

The matriarch tells Don about Rotman and how he is really Archdemon Bianakith. Don realizes that this will be a tough job. Bianakith is a foretold spirit of decay and disease whose aura is able to corrupt anything and everything it comes close to. Eventually the old foundations of London are going to crumble, too. Don, The Burned Man, and Trixie have to come up with a plan to keep this Archdemon from taking all of the Elementals out and taking down the entire city.

The Burned Man has got other plans, however, ones that could have some dire consequences for everybody.

The book is an excellent mix of laugh out loud comedy and some dark and gritty events. Drake is a character that readers have grown to like more with this book. The city of London is kind of like a character in the book, and is well used, lending itself well to an urban fantasy setting, with its criminal underbelly, underground tunnels, and dark alleyways.

“Damnation” is the third novel in the “The Burned Man” series, which was released in the year 2017. Don Drake lives rough in a sink estate on the outskirts of Edinburgh, and fends off the local lowlifes while doing cheap spells for his much cheaper clients. Six months back, Don fled from London, heading to Glasgow in order to find his former girlfriend Debbie, an alchemist.

The Burned Man is driving him mad little by little. He meets with a mysterious and ancient magician-slash-tramp, which has some disastrous consequences. His former accomplices have to come in to save Don from himself, before he is able to damn himself for keeps this time around.

Readers enjoyed how many twists there are in the book, and found their chins hitting the ground a few times. There are big surprises as well as some unexpected turns of events along the way. The final third of the book picked up and made readers hold their breath for some scenes, staying glued to each page until the book ended.

“Priest of Bones” is the first novel in the “War for the Rose Throne” series, which was released in the year 2018. The war has ended and Tomas Piety, an army priest, goes back home with Sergeant Bloody Anne by his side. Things have changed entirely in his absence.

The citizens of Ellinburg, his people, have run out of things like hope and food and places to hide. His entire crime empire has been taken over. Tomas sets out to take back what is rightfully his with Anne, Jochan (his brother), and the Pious Men (his new gang). He finds that he is pulled into a tangled web of political intrigue once more, it all gets complicated.

While the Pious Men battle against shadowy foreign infiltrators in brothels, back-street taverns, and the gambling dens from Tomas’ old life, it starts to become clear. The war has just started.

Fans of this novel felt themselves loving almost every single character in the book. The way that Tomas narrates the book gives this story a distinctive quality in the way it is told. With the way this book ends, readers cannot wait to get their hands on the next in the series to see where this series goes.
