City of Devils is a mystery and fantasy book set in a world where monsters roam freely among humans. In this book, a human detective is tasked with finding a mummy by the mummy’s wife. He must find out where this mummy is and if he is even alive. He must gather evidence, study clues, and sneak around if he is to solve his hardest case yet. The detective’s search takes him around Los Angeles as he uncovers mysteries, secrets, and crimes in the City of Devils. 


City of Devils is a fun, thrilling, and exciting mystery. There are three things I liked about this book. The first is the unique characters. The author did a great job of developing different personalities for each character. The second thing is that it has the occasional picture so you can visualize the different things the book is talking about. The third thing is that this book is action-packed with the detective gathering clues and narrowly missing danger. 

There are some things I did not like about this book. The first is that it is sometimes hard to keep up as there are so many different things going on in one scene. The second thing is that the start of the book is really confusing as the author doesn’t immediately explain that the world is monster-infested. However, as you read the story, things become clearer.


The author has done an excellent job on this book. It has it all: a thrilling mystery, narrow escapes, a fantasy world, and a great plot and characters. I rate this book 4 out of 5 stars and would definitely recommend it to any teen out there. Go give this book a read!
