bookshelves: historical-fantasy
Read from July 21 to August 04, 2012

There may be other historical fantasies set in 1760s Boston, but this is the first one I've ever read. Truly a unique setting in which to play out this engaging supernatural detective story, and the fine attention to historical detail makes it particularly atmospheric. The magic system seems almost too straightforward at times, but it's put to good use by the fairly interesting characters. The intricate and well-executed plot carries the reader along at a perfect pace. Overall, definitely enjoyable!
