内容紹介

Sometimes life is stranger than fiction.

After the tragic death of her parents, and with nothing left tying her to the United Kingdom, Ursula Formosa returns to her homeland of Malaysia and a job with the eccentrically-named Singapore firm, “The Check Your Luck Agency”.

What begins as an attempt to stave off boredom turns into a new way of life as the scales drop from Ursula’s eyes and she tentatively enters a realm that contains vengeful ghosts, toyol, demons, pontianak and curses, not to mention old-fashioned fraud and larceny. As she befriendsbomohs, mediums and a young woman already centuries old, Ursula’s ideas of friendship expand into a fresh view of the world that surrounds her.

But she isn’t going to be left to ease into things. A criminal mastermind, who is also a powerful sorcerer, is gathering mythical creatures to help him possess every living soul in Singapore, and he isn’t about to let the members of The Check Your Luck Agency stand in his way!

(This omnibus edition contains: The Check Your Luck Agency, Return of the Hantu, Wrath of the Harimau, Night of the Pontianak, and Five Card Draw, Jinn Are High, as well as an Afterword and an extensive Glossary.)

5つ星のうち 3.0 Not bad, but missing something 2014/8/24

This wasn't bad, but in the end it failed to excite me.

There's an interesting premise here, about an agency who investigates cases of "bad luck" to see if the cause is paranormal in nature, or just a jealous relative or plain old fraud. The protagonist, a fairly likable character named Ursula, at first denies the existence of the supernatural world, before eventually admitting to herself that she in fact has an affinity for the arcane herself. She can see the spirit world, can even communicate with ghosts better than many other practitioners of the art. In the face of unnatural enemies, and enemies who use unnatural means for their own gain, she learns to hone her new craft. All of this is set against the backdrop of a colorful part of the world I was not very familiar with before.

This sounds like the making of an intriguing story. Unfortunately, it kind of fell flat for me. None of the ghost stories really spooked me or thrilled me, the romantic interest did not make me swoon. Nothing in particular was bad, by any means, but I found myself reading on just for the sake of finishing it.

My favorite parts would probably be learning about the staples of southeast Asian ghost stories, and the specter of Simon Oakland. Simon was definitely my favorite character of the bunch.
5つ星のうち 5.0 Both Great Human and Paranormal Characters 2014/5/30

While Kaz usually writes Science Fiction The Complete Check Your Luck Agency is different. It is set in today’s world and is a paranormal mystery filled with both great human and paranormal characters. Look for vampires that are different, a cat that is not what he seems, and many, many ghosts. Those are just a few of the paranormal creatures that come to life in the book.

The setting is perfect. Singapore is a cross roads for Southeast Asia. It is very modern in some areas and not so modern in others. There is a diverse population to draw from and right across the border is Malaysia to add even more to the mix.

The Complete Check Your Luck Agency uses all of these factors to tell a fast moving, riveting story. Ursula Formosa is drawn into a world she did not believe existed and must join with others from The Check Your Luck Agency to prevent evil from spreading.

The story is told in five parts each labeled a book (each about 100 pages). Together they make a large book with some repeat as each section has back-story explaining what happened in the previous volumes. There is a common threat to each part. The characters grow and change, the plot becomes more complicated, and the world building more complex as each book progresses.

I loved the story and the characters. It was fun watching Ursula change as she acknowledged there were things out there that most people could not see. My favorite character was Simon. He is a ghost who is often with Ursula and causes her a more than a few problems. While the end of The Complete Check Your Luck Agency handles the main threat there is room for the characters to return for more adventures. I hope to see them all again soon.
