I received a copy of this novel from the publishers in exchange for an honest review.

The Choir Boats is an interesting and ambitious first novel in Daniel A. Rabuzzi's series. The author brings early nineteenth century European society to life and introduces a unique but complex world with Yount. Although the setting was very interesting, I did find myself having difficult fully immersing myself and engaging with the story which is strange because the novel has all of the elements that would grab my attention: adventure, a detailed presentation of early nineteenth century European society, a fantastical place beyond our conception of the known world, a cast of characters with their own quirks and traits. I think this is due to the writing, where the pacing is too slow at times and too distracting from the main storyline.

Despite of this, it's an interesting and unique story to the genre and I am curious to find out how the story will resolve in the second novel. You could read my full review of the novel over at my blog:
