I loved this book. It was mix of spy stuff, Lovecraftian Horrors, and a little bit of Bridget Jones' diary, and I would have told you I wouldn't be interested in that recipe beforehand. However, for a first novel, it is really well constructed and often laugh-out-loud funny. I'm hooked on the premise as there is great world building and I will read anything else in this series. Highly recommended -- one of my favorites (by far) in 2012.
