I liked this book but didn't love it. I enjoyed the relationship aspects (especially Terrible) and thought the worldbuilding was well done- I ended this book feeling like I really know this world of the Church; the slums of Downside; the dark and sundry magic of ghost banishment that Chess practices. I liked the disparity between the educated church employees who spoke correctly, and the street people of Downside was really noticeable but I appreciated it as a distinguishing factor.

What I didn't care for as much was Chess herself. I was annoyed by her drug addiction, I guess it felt like a mask that was supposed to make her more interesting. All the blatant fooling herself about what she wants and what she's capable of just served to make her kind of dull and annoying for me. however I guess I can see this as a good opportunity from a future character development perspective, since this is a first book.
