It is a well-written novel with many fascinating twists and turns. Kelly avoids overwhelming the reader by slowly revealing the supernatural content over the course of the novel. The ghostly and paranormal elements of the story are quite inventive and believable. Hunter Vance and David Brown are fully fleshed and vibrant characters.
H A Weapon of Opportunity by Kiernan Kelly is an intriguing and fast paced mystery with a ghostly twist. David is still on a learning curve when it comes to being a ghost, and he learns a lot through trial and error. A Weapon of Opportunity is a wonderful novel on so many levels.
The investigation of the serial killer takes an unexpected detour that is often chilling.

A Weapon of Opportunity is a whimsical, entertaining story with good characters and a quick paced mystery.
Despite those reminders this story remains interesting and enjoyable to read from start to finish. I heard somewhere this is the start of a series and if so, then definitely one to watch. The plot s A Weapon of Opportunity is a whimsical, entertaining story with good characters and a quick paced mystery. The plot starts with Hunter, a detective, working on a series of murders. Together the two are investigating a new murder with no clues and no witness.
Yet a ghost at the scene tells David that a boy, a live boy, saw the killing. Trying to piece together the various elements, which sound more and more ridiculous each time, Hunter and David race to stop a serial killer while trying to protect a little boy. In many ways the plot is very out there and requires a good suspension of disbelief. Each new element introduced is more outrageous and reaching than the last but the skillful writing keeps the reader engaged and wanting to believe.
Instead it feels like a natural, albeit stretching, progression.

Part of the reason is the good characterization. David being dead actually adds a nice element of humor and irony to the situation as the stoic Hunter is forced to deal with things in a different way. Their romance is surprisingly well crafted and engaging. The additional character of Cooper, the young boy, is wonderful and his charm comes across in every scene. That youthful enthusiasm and innocence is a very good foil to the darkness of the serial killer. Again this may feel familiar to readers but the writing keeps the story interesting. The charm and humor will please and satisfy readers so this is an easy story to recommend.
A Weapon of Opportunity was an entertaining read, but it also had some problems which might not be as big for other readers as they were for me. The story is well written and some solutions in the paranormal aspect of the story were quite original. The characters were undoubtedly male and there is humor in the book too, which is a big plus for me. The tone of the story is uneven though, as if author couldn't quite decide whether to go to the direction of Ghost Busters or The Exorcist, comedy or ho A Weapon of Opportunity was an entertaining read, but it also had some problems which might not be as big for other readers as they were for me.
The tone of the story is uneven though, as if author couldn't quite decide whether to go to the direction of Ghost Busters or The Exorcist, comedy or horror. The author mainly concentrates on the two protagonists and we hardly get a glimpse at the world outside them.

The paranormal is therefore hardly measured against the 'real' world. Hunter is a leading detective on the high-profile case and, yet, we don't get to see anything of the police force he works for.
Aside from Cooper, autistic boy who becomes important for the investigation, the other secondary characters suitably come and go to move the story along and then disappear. I also had some issues with the relationship between Hunter and David as well as with their characters. We were told that David was a veteran cop when Hunter became a detective. That implies he was older of the two. For the better part of the story, David behaves more like a horny teenager than a mature detective.

And, while that was source of some interesting and undoubtedly humorous moments, it didn't ring quite true. The same goes for their relationship. The story revolves around David and Hunter, but they spend the entire novel solving the case. There is very little private moments described.
Also, it was the outside force that made David admit his feelings for Hunter, although he claims it was the death that opened his eyes for the things he missed in the past. So, what was he waiting for five years? Hunter seemed more frustrated with David's presence than anything else. So, when they finally admitted their feelings to each other, it felt rather lukewarm and insubstantial.
It is interesting that the scene that seemed the most honest and most powerful to me was a scene of the fight that led to their first lovemaking.
I very much enjoyed how the author dealt with the character of Cooper and used the paranormal elements to show us his personality and his, otherwise inaccessible, world. Like I said, all the things I mentioned above might not bother the other readers at all. While I enjoyed the story, I also felt that the broader view of the world and some relationship development would have added to the story.

Secondly, it would then be allowed to be used as a reaction instead of a bonus action. Reactions and bonus actions are different in their uses and restrictions.
Opening up the option here might allow a character to save their bonus actions for other class abilities by using this spell as a reaction for example. Thus, by giving the spell more ways to use and and more utility you increase the power of the spell. Allowing this weapon to be counted as an extension of the caster's reach provides a doubling of the area that the spellcaster threatens and doubles their opportunities to provoke OAs.
Additionally, the weapon would be very effective at threatening OAs since it cannot be attacked. Thus it can move freely into melee territory and lock down enemies with no risk to the weapon itself. This is much more powerful than another creature that can be hit positioning itself within enemy melee range. The caster doesn't even have to give up the ability to make OAs from their space to do this.
From a pragmatic standpoint this also would mean that two separate reaches would have to be tracked throughout the battle for that one character which could get unwieldy and potentially could bog down battle a bit. As always, even with these concerns the DM can allow it. Just note that the spell will be more powerful and that it is going to go against the intent and RAW for the spell.
