it was amazing

This is I think the third book in the loosely connected series about a group of faeries living beneath London in a failing Hall, due to the influx of a large amount of iron, and in particular, the inner circle underground railroad, that is creating a band of iron around the court that is weakening the Hall, and the places that the faeries live. The other books take place in earlier times of London I believe. This one is deep, engrossing, with a fascinating cast of various fey, with a good mix of legend, but mostly new. How the court is staying together is inventive, and the alchemy and Babbage-like machines they are inventing to try and slow the destruction is fascinating. A great look at fey London below, and both the slums of London of the mortals, and the upper classes, upstairs and downstairs. A great, grand read.
