    One thought on “Blondes, Books, and Bourbon: A White Dragon Black Anthology”

    1. Note: I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest reviewOT | STORYB3 is an anthology with some great stories and experiences of one of my favourite protagonist, Mr. Jonathan Alvey, a private investigator who is also a magic practitioner. I loved this book even more than Mr. Ridley’s previous one, Tomorrow Wendell, which BTW is also about Jonathan Alvey and is super awesome! I absolutely loved all the stories and will re-read them very soon (yes, it’s that good!) All the stories [...]

    2. Since reading Tomorrow Wendell, I've been fascinated with R.M. Ridley's Jonathan Alvey, and his unique brand of magic - his unique everything in fact, from the bleak depravity of New Hades, to the myriad characters dwelling deep within its ghoulish core.Oh to be a fly on the wall of Alvey's office! To see what transpires within his private sanctum of sacred texts, scrolls, skulls, and whiskey. But what if you could do one better? What if you could dip into Alvey's very brain? Not just for a day, [...]

    3. This is an amazing read, although short stories, all the stories are linked through Mr. Jonathon Alvey and this is a unique collection that reads like an amazing novel. The reader follows Private investigator Alvey as he takes on paranormal cases. I won't go into each one but just know they are interesting and compelling cases that will have the reader glued to this amazing anthology. I love all the different paranormal characters in the book and private investigator Jonathon Alvey is a bit para [...]

    4. I received this book from the author, in exchange for an honest review.Having greatly enjoyed the first book of the White Dragon Black series, I was thrilled when the author contacted me to read and review this short story collection: in my review about Tomorrow Wendell I wrote about the many shadowed corners of this world I would have liked to explore, and this looked like the perfect opportunity to do so.The tone of this collection starts in a somewhat lighter note than the first novel, at lea [...]

    5. I have a certain special place in my heart reserved for detective fiction, and as such I jumped at the opportunity to get my hands on an advanced copy of RM Ridley’s new White Dragon Black Anthology, his latest addition to the growing case files of his paranormal PI Jonathon Alvey. Brooding, cantankerous, and so deeply flawed he’s almost on the verge of shattering completely, Alvey is a fantastic homage to the hardboiled detective fiction of old with a fresh insertion of the mystical and arc [...]

    6. As the editor-in-chief of Xchyler Publishing, I refrain from giving star ratings, as a general rule. I prefer readers to be confident that the ratings on any one of our books are from honest and unbiased sources. While that is true of all my reviews, including this one, with the White Dragon Black series, the spot-on work of R. M. Ridley, I feel well justified in adding the weight of stars to my public reviews. The following is an excerpt of my review. The full review can be found at bit/1Boeg4T [...]

    7. Jane Hunt Writer First StepsJane Hunt Writer Book Reviews FacebookJane Hunt Writer Book Reviews Google+This anthology is the first book I have read in the White Dragon Black series. I instantly liked the main character Jonathan Alvey and soon became fascinated in his extraordinary life. An interview with Jonathan sets the scene perfectly for new readers. Linked short stories follow, the first is nostalgic and reminiscent of a private eye detective story but with an interesting paranormal twist. [...]

    8. original review @ JC's Book Haven."Uh-huh." She nodded her head, dabbed her eyes. "Or maybe" Her eyes flicked away. "Or maybe it was cursed.""Cursed." Cursed milk was a new one for Jonathan. He'd run into cursed books, remains, rooms, and even once a silk tie, but milk -- not so far. "Go on."The GoodOk so I want to start out by saying I have a strong dislike for short stories in general. But I really enjoyed the time I spent with each one of these. Alvey is an awesome main protagonist that is ea [...]

    9. Extremely love it.Blondes, Books and Bourbon is a collection of wonderful stories. Mr. Alvey is a private investigator who is also a magic practitioner. I loved all the stories and I love the writing style of the author as well.The author introduces us to new and unique creatures, spells and the overall magical uses. Ridley made the world, the characters and the overall magic in such a real way, which made me feel extremely immersed into the book more than other paranormal books out there.The au [...]

    10. I received an ARC of the collection in exchange for a read and review of one of the stories therein. Jonathan Alvey and I have crossed paths before, via his adventures in the “Shades and Shadows” and “Legends and Lore” anthologies. In BBB’s “Legerdelivre”, I hover by our magic-wielding detective’s shoulder, sharing his impatience for his latest client to spit out exactly what’s got him so spooked. Turns out, it’s a particularly evil book of spells, along with an aggressive an [...]

    11. These short stories are absolutely terrific! If you like detective stories, especially of the paranormal kind, you should get yourself this book right now because it's really good.All of these stories are based on Jonathan Alvey, detective extraordinaire of the things that go bump in the night or will eat your face and spit you out then eat it again! He's a pretty cool guy even if he does like a little bourbon in between, during, and after his jobs. In these short stories you meet a handful of w [...]

    12. This is a short story anthology of the White Dragon Black series that I had the privilege to devour in advance. A must-read for any WDB fans! Ridley opened this anthology with an interview that will make the hairs on the back of your neck stand up and an even bigger reaction in your brain to continue on reading. If you haven’t read the first book in the series, Tomorrow Wendell, you’ll still enjoy this collection and get to know Jonathan Alvey, as well as a few other recurring characters. If [...]

    13. Blondes, Books and Bourbon, is a gritty, witty, and downright entertaining series of short stories. The character of Jonathan Alvey, and indeed the whole White Dragon Black series, reads as if the author mixed Harry Dresden and Phillip Marlowe in an acid bath and then etched the page in the peerless prose that resulted.The stories in the anthology vary in tone and temperament, some irreverent and funny like What a Nightmare (which reminded me a bit of a slapstick comedy), others darker and more [...]

    14. Sins of the Father was a new take on the classic private investigator story. Alvey tends to take on cases that go from strange to the seemingly bizarre, and this case was no different. He was brought on to investigate a burglary where a rare and mysterious set of cufflinks have been stolen from a pawn shop. I thought Sins of the Father was a good stand alone story, but felt that there could have been a lot more added to really make the story stand out. The dialogue felt genuine to the plot, the [...]
