This author is fast becoming one of my favourites. I almost can’t encompass how much this story has everything that makes me happy to read a book. Romance, beautiful and complicated men, supernatural horrors, sorcery, a steep learning curve for oblivious characters who are forced to wake up right now or die. The scenery: it’s grim and snowy and cold and set in an alternate early America, in a city born from the whaling trade. You get that harsh flavour of hard work, now and in the past, mixed with industry and ruthlessness and authority and arrogance. Tuck in the all but smothering attitude of learned men in a museum, and you feel edifices will crush your emotions to a grey pulp. And then you get the redeeming characters who remind you why we make friends, have lovers, entertain hopes. The bright parts are so bright, you are warmed when the characters feel that warmth.
Loved the narrative. Very beautiful balance between feelings, scene and action. I’m on the second book in the series now. If not for distractions in the house, I’d probably read it in hours like the first. But I’ll do my best in any case, no doubt.
