    3 1/2 stars. Another fun episode. As what you can expect in a Montague & Strong Case File: explosions, snark, double dealing. Just plain fun. Not sure why I don't like it quite as much as some of the others. But I am glad to see they didn't destroy Times Square. 3 1/2 stars. Another fun episode.

    May the snark be with you This is the BEST book in the entire Montague & Strong Universe! In this novel, Monty and Simon have the best chemistry that I’ve read in any of their books. Their relationship has evolved into the perfect best friend, buddy cop, husband wife, odd couple relationship I have ever read. The insane level of snark and banter is incredible. The way they play off of each other is magnificent. Monty even has a sense of humor. Don’t even get me stared on Peaches.

The plot is also amazing. It’s not just great writing. We get to see true growth in Simon. We also get to see a side of both Simon and Monty, that I think they didn’t know existed, thanks to a certain cold girl. The supporting characters are some of the best in the M&S Universe. We get to revisit some of our favorite characters and we get to meet some extremely interesting new characters. So don’t dawdle, Death should never be kept waiting. Start reading NOW!

    Here they go again Another book high in the manipulation and back stabbing.  I feel like we don't have enough info.  Again, our heroes get played and involved in things that are high over their heads, and they are thrown in the middle of another potential catastrophe.  Again, they manage to save the day, and this time, at least there are no huge amounts of destruction left in their wake, but they are still hated and not everyone is giving them the recognition they deserve.  There are a couple of c Here they go again Another book high in the manipulation and back stabbing.  I feel like we don't have enough info.  Again, our heroes get played and involved in things that are high over their heads, and they are thrown in the middle of another potential catastrophe.  Again, they manage to save the day, and this time, at least there are no huge amounts of destruction left in their wake, but they are still hated and not everyone is giving them the recognition they deserve.  There are a couple of characters that I just didn't get, what were they doing there?  I don't know, are they another loose end we are going to find later?  I think they deserve a little vacay after everything they've done, I know they won't get it and soon we will have them in another thankless job saving the city.  I just hope we are going to finally get to learn what the deal with the Dark Council is.

    Book number 10 in Orlando Sanchez's 'Montage and Strong' series, and - much like Simon Strong - I'm beginning to feel lost with just what is going on.

The most famous golem narrative involves Judah Loew ben Bezalel, the late-16th-century rabbi of Prague" Modern readers might be more familiar with them from their inclusion in the later entr Book number 10 in Orlando Sanchez's 'Montage and Strong' series, and - much like Simon Strong - I'm beginning to feel lost with just what is going on.

In this one, a Golem has been created and is terrorizing select parts of New York, with Montague and Strong called in to deal - reluctantly - with the threat it represents.

    Another fun entertaining story that sweeps you up into the Montague & Strong world. Explosions, maybe, destruction? well, that is something Monty and Simon try to prevent. But as we learned magic and mage made creations don't always work as planned, sometimes things get a little rocky!

When I met Bangers and Mash well let's just say I couldn't stop smiling, a few laughs might have slipped out also. Peaches, he's still his adorable, logical self. Seems his spending time with Frank has taught him a few things! Love that Hellhound.

    This review is going to sound like ALL the others for the Montague and Strong Detective Novel's I've done but it a fact; IT'S AMAZING!!! They just get better and better with each new one!!! They all have a high stress level/edge of your seat, wondering what's going to happen!!! HOW are they going to defeat THIS baddie, the amazing banter between Monty and Strong is just soooo soooo FUNNY and witty!!! The Golem was a REALLY scary seemingly unstoppable force I thought but M&S pulled it off again!!

This series is SIMPLY PERFECT!!! STILL dying to get Roxanne's story though. I await the next installment as "patiently" as ever!! ahahaa

    Another great M&S story After a cuppa with another new era author, I learned the importance of the reader review. If you enjoy urban fantasy, Sci-Fi or just a good read, go no further grab this or any of the M&S universe of books. Mr. Sanchez delivered as always. So I start here with one of the first of many reviews. Strong along with us finds there are many things to learn about this new world and where he fits in with it. Monty seems to finally be separating himself from the life he imagined to Another great M&S story After a cuppa with another new era author, I learned the importance of the reader review.

Orlando if you are reading this... Stop.. Get some coffee and get back to work my bowl is empty!

    The Golem Wow! So good! I love Monty, Strong and Peaches. Orlando has written another cracker! I love seeing peaches grow and his obsession with meat, his way of working things out and of course his and Simon 's banter and their relationship. Simon is great and he is doing well, getting to grips with all of this. He is loyal and a good partner for Monty. Monty needs Simon and vice versa.

    Absolutely engaging battle mage action Book 10 of Montague and Strong’s continuing struggle to save New York without destroying it, “one building at a time,” is a fast read, doesn’t lag when characters get injured and introduces new friends and foes.

They do it with their usual style, subtlety, and snark. Times Square survives as does the rest of the city (slightly surprising actually) in spite of a power-mad mage.

    Review Simon and Monty have another earth-shattering problem to handle, but first they have to get CeCe the little ice mage to unfreeze the Warsaw, and expel the evil that has possessed the child. And Peaches severely crushes on Rags. So cute. Then the guys must deal with Bangers and Mash, paranormal investigators who shouldn't be. The big one-destroying a stone golem and the mage who created it. Simon must keep Monty from going dark to destroy the enemy. All while coming to terms with his immortality.

Well you will discover that Jen, is not entirely truthful but in the end she does her part.

    Overpowered mage with a stolen artifact? Check. Ability for said artifact to create & control indestructible Golems while siphoning magic sources? Check. Failed couples therapy? Check. What do you do when NY is faced with a threat nobody wants to face? Call in the Trio of Devastation, landmark decorators extraordinaire! But, when faced with a landmark even they hesitate to relocate from the physical plane, all bets are off. A truly action-packed and hilarious installment of M&S.

    Note to newbie readers: IMHO this book isn’t a stand-alone. Montague & Strong (and Peaches) return in their tenth outing, this time battling a Golem. I enjoy this series, because I like how author Orlando Sanchez allows his already-well-developed characters to learn and continue growing into their powers. As always, the author adds more lore to the M&S universe, continuing to build a richer world.

    Monty and Strong (and Peaches) are back with all of the landmark destroying prowess that you have come to expect. A rival mage, in order to grow his power, has released an unstoppable Golem on M&S's city. If they can't stop this one, there won't be a city left, and maybe much worse. This one is full of the antics that you have come to expect, as well as introducing an..."interesting"....new team for our trio to work with. Definitely a fun ride.

    The saga of Peaches continues I really need to pace myself. I’ve chewed through all ten Montague and Strong novels plus all the short stories and Chi’s arc. To paraphrase Peaches, books are life. And I need more. Every time Amazon notifies me there is a new Orlando Sanchez book available, I’ll happily hand over my money to get another fix of snark, pop culture references, magic and pastrami.

    Great character development. The characters have grown throughout the series but remain true to themselves - quite a feat for book #10. I like how Simon grows angrier and more powerful in each volume. Fast paced drama that is hard to put down. Even though each book has a solid ending I immediately find the next volume & start reading. Looking forward to seeing these characters in other series.

    The best M&S,and Peaches yet! This was one helluva ride! As usual the action and wit were nonstop. Simon was snarky, Tristan was ( not so vaguely ) condescending and Peaches was awesomely hellhoundish, (not to mention perpetually hungry). And the whole crew were, as usual, devastatingly devestating! I LOVE THIS BOOK!

    The guys are back home and things are already getting exciting! And Peaches is right in the middle of everything. I just love the conversations between Monty and Simon and between Simon and Peaches. Of course, Simon, Monty and Peaches save the day but how they get there is a great journey. Make time for this book because you won’t be able to put it down once you start it.

    What can I say, Peaches is back along with Monty and Strong and they saved the world, or at least their small portion of it again. Loved all the Star Wars, Star Trek and other Easter eggs scattered thru. And introducing a new spin off set of characters, can't wait for their books! All in all, another "strong" link in this series! Loved it!!! What can I say, Peaches is back along with Monty and Strong and they saved the world, or at least their small portion of it again.

    Another "Strong" Outing. (Har har) It was good to see Ursula again too! The mark of an excellent writer is the ability to have his/her characters grow and expand, or, conversely, fail as life circumstances provide for those changes. In "The Golem" , changes abound everywhere. We also get a great story as well. Can you seriously ask for more? Another "Strong" Outing. (Har har) It was good to see Ursula again too!

    You shall not pass (up reading this book) Wow the big number 10. Orlando is always surprised by how well he calls forth these characters and gets them to tell their stories. I was completely impressed by all of the nods to pop culture references. I own all of this series, and you should too. They are THAT GOOD.

    Golems What a really hard headed foe to face. I liked that Simon is having to start to face his reality which is his immorality and Monty seems to start having his hands full with his young ice apprentice. Peaches continued to be an important asset along with growing and providing interesting insight. All in all a great read.

    Another great addition to the Montague and Strong case files! Monty and Simon meet new characters and have epic battles once again! Peaches is at his XL best! Grab a big cup of Deathwish coffee or a cuppa Earl Grey and dive into this awesome adventure with our favorite detective agency and the most loveable hellhound!!
