it was amazing
bookshelves: dark-fantasy, horror, post-mythic

First off, this is not your typical Steam-Punk novel. Peter's crams some high concepts in here more akin to H.P. Lovecraft than Isaac Asimov. This is a genre-element novel written for fans of horror and urban fantasy... not sci-fi and historical mystery. Perhaps it's because I read Peter's "Ghost Ocean" first - and loved it - that I was able to easily love "Whitechapel Gods" as well.

Yes, there were a few too many characters. Yes, it started out a bit confusing. Regardless, I read this entire book in one sitting. I literally could NOT put it down. The mythos weaved by Peters in the novel is epic and chaotic, and my only real complaint is that I wanted MORE. Especially on the character of Aaron.

Oh, and that cover is easily one of the coolest ever...
