More reviews (and no fluff) on the blog http://surrealtalvi.wordpress.com/The Deathsniffer's Assistant is an intriguing story built around a late Victorian/early Edwardian type of society. What we have really are two stories woven around one young man POV: a Sherlock Holmes murder mystery and an alternate universe urban fantasy in which elementals can be magically enslaved. The world building is superb and the split focus makes for a robust read.
“He smelled like heather and sunlight. Chris buried his nose in the young man’s hair and felt his lips on his neck.”
