From Robert Brockway, Sr. Editor and Columnist of, comes The Unnoticeables, a funny and frightening urban fantasy.There are angels, and they are not beneficent or loving. But they do watch over us. They watch our lives unfold, analyzing us for repeating patterns and redundancies. When they find them, the angels simplify those patterns and remove the redundancies, and the problem that is “you” gets solved.Carey doesn’t much like that idea. As a punk living in New York City, 1977, Carey is sick and tired of watching strange kids with unnoticeable faces abduct his friends. He doesn’t care about the rumors of tar-monsters in the sewers or unkillable psychopaths invading the punk scene—all he wants is to drink cheap beer and dispense ass-kickings.Kaitlyn isn’t sure what she’s doing with her life. She came to Hollywood in 2013 to be a stunt woman, but last night a former teen heartthrob tried to eat her, her best friend has just gone missing, and there’s an angel outside her apartment. Whatever she plans on doing with her life, it should probably happen in the few remaining minutes she has left.There are angels. There are demons. They are the same thing. It’s up to Carey and Kaitlyn to stop them. The survival of the human race is in their hands.We are, all of us, well and truly screwed.

2.5 out of 5 stars. This was a mixed experience. I can definitely say that Brockway has created something interesting here. The clashing story of Carey and Kaitlyn is funny and charming, as much as a story about cosmic human reduction can be. Their lives and the urban horror-fantasy world which they inhabit have their own charming logic. I loved the vivid descriptions and clever turns of phrase that helped me imagine the trippy punk rock world contained in the book. However the company of characters I spent the adventure with were really irritating and the edgy, gory humor and shock got really old after a while. Most of the characters in Carey's punk group were difficult to invest in, (other than Sammy Six) and I found myself rolling my eyes at their contributions to dialogue and plot to be really boring at times. I found Kaitlyn's commentary on the Unnoticeable threat invading Hollywood to be a lot more interesting, but in the end it didn't reveal much about the world other than a larger scale of the incident that happened between Wash, Gus and Carey. Overall it was a fun, shlocky romp but I don't think that i'm going to be continuing this trilogy.
