    1. Disappointment is an unfortunate thing when it comes to reading. Sometimes a book doesn't live up to the expectations set up by the cover copy. It's not often that this happens to me. I've found books with such problems to be average or even below-average, but it's a rare thing that a book leads me to write a review like the one below. Central Park Knight promises adventure of the Indiana Jones variety, magic, dragons, and massive battles. In many ways, Henderson's delivers on these promises, bu [...]

    2. Central Park Knight has an exciting premise--an Indiana Jones style professor battling Lovecrafian monsters in NYC.But for me, the book just didn't do it.The characters were flat, the action was nonexistent, and began to feel that the author should be fined for his repeated violations of "show, not tell."For me, the book was disastrous both in terms of character and writing style, but flat characters are far too commonplace to earn my fiercest ire. The writing style, make me more and more furiou [...]

    3. Review courtesy of All Things Urban FantasyDid you experience a sense of déjà vu while reading the first two chapters of CENTRAL PARK KNIGHT? That’s because those chapters were originally written as a stand alone short story, An Excess of Joy, included in the 2009 anthology, SPELLS OF THE CITY. It introduced us to a mild mannered curator for the Brooklyn Museum who, unbeknownst to those around him, faces down otherworldly threats like dragons and interdimensional monsters capable of destroyi [...]

    4. I went into this book expecting a lot--after all the publisher’s blurb above equates Prof. Piers Knight with legendary Indiana Jones--but even after a brilliant and strong intro (which is only barely tied to the story), I was left sorely disappointed.Piers felt boring and flat to me, definitely lacking charisma. Sure, he had some cool gadgets and the New York setting was great (as were the dragons), but Piers never really had me invested in his story and I found myself more interested in Piers [...]

    5. This book had too many referbacks to earlier action, and although it was well written and contained a great theme, it did not stand completely alone.However - it was amazing in the final scenes. I literally cried during an episode in Central Park.It built on the Night at the Museum and National Treasure theme of the importance of Museums, and what they contain that the public doesn't know about. It also brought forth dragons as a force to be reckoned with. Are they good? Evil? or like humans, a [...]

    6. The second in Henderson's Piers Knight series finds the magical director of the Brooklyn Museum called on to save the planet from a fearsome invader. Twice. If you like goofy urban fantasy, it doesn't get much goofier than Knight. Tropes and redshirt deaths abound when Knight must face down a deadly threat: the dragons have awoken. Aided by his trusty teen techie sidekick George and bombshell-in-distress archaeologist Tian Lu, Knight is forced to choose sides as war breaks out between the dragon [...]

    7. I finished this one just as fast as I did the first one. Even more action packed and funnier than the first too. I wanted more Detective Denny LaRaja. ;) Very exciting and tense, and the ending was appropriately triumphant and dramatic, but very sad, kinda leaves me hanging. I'm looking forward to the third book!

    8. After the first two chapters, which I now know to be a stand alone short story, which I liked, this book is a hot mess. Normally, I would have read this book in a day, but the Agatha Christie vs William Gibson style and the under developed and confused plot made it take two weeks. And in the end I wasn't even satisfied that I had at least finished it.

    9. Again the author spent too much time on the build up of the story & then hurried with the ending. But over all it was very worth reading & I look forward to Mr. Henderson getting the next book published.

    10. This book has fat jokes in it. Fat jokes are not okay, ever. Also, the main character is a pompous boring jerk who thinks the world revolves around him. Borrrrrrrring.

    11. no that good, sounded beter then it was and I think it was because the Indiana Jones label it had on it. It was an okey read but nothing special.

    12. Slow in the beginning like his first book. Action packed and stunning ending however. Not like Indiana Jones as the description claims, but not a waste of time either.
