Summary

Daniel Faust has clawed his way from the gutter to a penthouse suite, carving a bloody swath across the Las Vegas underworld. He's buried his enemies and more than a few friends along the way. 

If there's one thing a modern-day sorcerer knows for certain, though, it's that the past never stays buried forever. 

Now he's running on ice, juggling his responsibilities as a mob boss with his dubious "gift" of a knighthood in the courts of hell, defending territory in two worlds at once. 

It's a bad time for unfinished business to come back and haunt him, forcing him to confront his tortured history and the family he left behind. It's an even worse time for his surviving foes to join forces and take deadly aim at Faust's throne. Toss in a syndicate operative from a parallel world, a deranged, half-demon assassin hungry for a duel, and the shadowy machinations of the King of Worms, and the stage is set for a showdown under the neon lights of Vegas. 

Vultures are circling, and only the magician with the quickest wits - and the fastest trigger finger - will survive.

Nothing really happens...

The more I think about this book, the more miffed I become.

Nothing really happens in this book:

- Almost nothing is resolved, especially story elements from the previous books.

- The main antagonist isn't dealt with, they are basically only introduced so that a future book can be written.

- One minor antagonist story arc is concluded, though he was introduced in this book.

- One minor antagonist has some slight character development, but no real resolution occurs.

- Did Daniel learn anything about the network, the enemy, or how to change his fate? Some minor background information, but NOTHING CRITICAL OR OVERLY IMPORTANT.

Craig Schaefer nails it again!

Every single one of the Daniel Faust books is awesome. I am somewhat picky about what I read and extremely picky about what I recommend. I am even More picky about what I read or listen to multiple time. I’ve listened to this series a minimum of ten times since discovering it several years ago. I love books that are well written, have fully developed characters, and that surprise me. It is hard to be surprised by a book and I almost always have the plot figured out way before the end. Mr. Schafer surprises me in Every Single Book! Last but not least, Daniel is the ultimate anti-hero, a villain and thief that you cannot help but love.

If you want a richly developed world of magic, danger, humor and cleverness to inhabit for a little while, this is the series for you! (I will say it would probably be rated R if it were a movie, just so you know.)

Thank you, Craig Schaefer, for enhancing my life with this world you created!

Another great addition to the series!

The Neon Boneyard by Craig Schaefer and narrated by Adam Verner is book eight in the series! I have loved this wild ride to get here! Daniel is thrown a party by the demons to celebrate him becoming a knight. There someone picks a fight. It's a setup. That mystery guy and who he works for, the drugs in the street laced with magic, and more is just some of what Daniel has to deal with! Action packed, humorous, witty, clever dialogue, great characters, and twisty plot make this book terrific!
The narration is excellent too!
