New York Times bestselling author Simon Green introduces a new kind of hero, one who fights the good fight against some very old foes in the first novel in the Secret Histories series.
The name’s Bond. Shaman Bond. Actually, that's just his cover. His real name is Eddie Drood, but when your job includes a license to kick supernatural arse on a regular basis, you find your laughs where you can.

For centuries, his family has been the secret guardian of Humanity, all that stands between all of you and all of the really nasty things that go bump in the night. As a Drood field agent he wore the golden torc, he killed monsters, and he protected the world. He loved his job.

Right up to the point where his own family declared him rogue for no reason. Now, the only people who can help Eddie prove his innocence are the people he used to consider his enemies...
Simon R. Green is the New York Times bestselling author of the Secret Histories Novels, the Novels of the Nightside, the Ghost Finders series, and the Deathstalker series.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Man With the Golden Torc Fun and humorous but no sure about the rest of the series

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Fast Paced Supernatural Spy Thriller Simon R. Green's Secret Histories series gets off to a fast paced start that doesn't let up from start to finish. There may be a case of too much action as Eddie Drood barely gets a chance to breath in between encounters. Though an entertaing start to a series, this book could also have served as a turning point with 2 or 3 books coming out before the wide sweeping changes that end up taking place by this books conclusion. Though not as good as Green's Nightside series, I will continue to read and hopefully enjoy the Secret Histories.
