Kevin recommended the book and I'm happy that I followed the recommendation in this case. Thank you Kevin!

A Murder of Mages delivers a fantasy world which is in this case a really big town enriched with magic. The police procedural is described very well and the inspector tandem reminds in some aspect of Holmes and Watson.
The the two main characters are the stars of the book.
I like Satrine Rainey and Minox Welling a lot and their first case is full of twists and turns. The blend of work and private life is excellent.
It is a dark novel

I would have liked to get more information about the town and more fleshed out secondary characters.

All in all a more than promising start of a new series.

There is a second series set in the same town which I need to discover too.
