This book is fully of excitement and adventure, happiness and tragedy. The narrative flows and is very well plotted. There are many characters
There are sparks of genius sprinkled around the novel. I really enjoyed his characterizations, description of all the main characters, their power, & obsessions
Dellaria Wells, Delly, is a hard-drinking thief, about to be evicted from her apartment in Leiscourt. Delly is also a talented fire-witch, but has no idea how to hone her skills. Delly fast-talks herself into a good paying job, protecting a young rich lady from assassination.
I found the story to be well researched and detail enough to build a picture without hurting the narrative. The writing is very engaging, almost lyrical, but the author somehow also manages to capture the harsh life and climate.
A novel taking place in present day New York City involving a search for a missing manuscript by Edgar Allan Poe in a hidden world of magic & magical creatures
