Publisher's Summary

Welcome back to the streets of Sunder City, a darkly imagined world perfect for listeners of Ben Aaronovitch and Jim Butcher.

In a city that lost its magic, an angel falls in a downtown street. His wings are feathered, whole—undeniably magical—the man clearly flew, because he left one hell of a mess when he plummeted into the sidewalk.

But what sent him up? What brought him down? And will the answers help Fetch bring the magic back for good?

Working alongside necromancers, genies, and shadowy secret societies, through the wildest forests and dingiest dive bars, this case will leave its mark on Fetch's body, his soul, and the fate of the world.

Praise for the Fetch Phillips novels:

"Superb... With a lead who would be at home in the pages of a Raymond Chandler or James Ellory novel and a nicely twisty plot, this installment makes a strong case for Arnold's series to enjoy a long run." ―Publishers Weekly

"Arnold's universe has everything, including the angst of being human. The perfect story for adult fantasy fans—a tough PI and a murder mystery wrapped around the mysticism of Hogwarts, sprinkled with faerie dust." ―Library Journal (starred review)

I'm used to the Dark

These stories have been uniformally dark, as all good Noir Detective fiction should be; but this one went both to a more dark place for our hero, and yet allowed him to find a kind of balance for his weary soul at the end that may herald an interesting change in demeanor of the story if the author creates a fourth in the series.
If a fourth book is written, I will certainly be here for it.

Even more engaging than the first two.

I will mark these stories as favorites making them easy to find when I am ready to enjoy them again. How rare that a talented author is also such a fabulous teller of tales. More please.

QUIRKY, but totally awesome!

This is the 3rd in a series. The main character, Fetch, is flawed and believable - as are the other characters. I have really enjoyed this saga. I’m looking forward to the next book. The author also narrates; his voice, timing and cadence is impeccable.

Different story style, Same Fetch Phillips

While the first two books in the series were Noir Detective story with the added aspect of a world reeling from the loss of magic, this book is more of your classic fantasy quest story with some Noir narration for flavor. Not to give anything away, but this is even commented on near the end of the book. However, I think that was the point, and what occurs has a major impact on Fetch, his world view and his actions going forward. Although I am hoping the next book is more of a detective story, I did really enjoy "One Foot in the Fade" and recommend it to any Fetch Phillips fan.

Excellent!

The third installment in the Fetch Phillip's series is wonderful. Luke Arnold's writing only gets better. The characters that continue on from the first two books have increasingly interesting arcs and the new characters are mesmerizing.

Love, love, love Luke Arnold! This whole series has been awesome. I will wait patiently for the next book and get it the moment it's available. I will say the cursing is over the top in this installment for me but to each his own with artistic expression. Not only is Mr. Arnold a fabulous story weaver but he's also perfect at telling his story. Excellent

Powerful (and meaningful) Series Conclusion

One Foot in the Fade seems like a regular adventure fantasy right up to the moment that it isn’t regular at all. I’m not positive that it is the series conclusion but it feels like it and, if so, it’s masterful. It’s difficult to say anything accurate about the plot or characters that, after reading the end, would not be a spoiler. I’ll just say it has been a very long time since I have been spun quite this hard as a book drew to the final chapters. I loved it.
