It's a curious novella that has supporting characters with personalities so strong that I wish the story revolved more around them than our Heroine, Julia. With her sister tragically murdered Julia finds herself being assisted two heroes of the empire, Holly a retiree and the Lady Law a private detective with an impeccable record but suspicious methods.

There's a slow build up with the mystery and even a budding love story that helps to flesh out Julia's character while culminating in an ending so confusing that I only fully understood it thanks to a bit of exposition from out Heroine!

Despite the relatively short length the author has managed to create an entire world and write a group of rather fantastical but interesting characters.

Received as an ARC via NetGalley.
