I'm not quite sure how I felt about this book. I enjoyed reading it and the characters were interesting, but didn't draw me in the same way Maguire's other two novels (Taming the Beast, Gospel According to Luke) did. In Smoke in the Room there is not really a lot of action that propels the story. (Maybe my problem is that I'm comparing this to her other novels) As is her usual style, Maguire writes about distinctive dark characters with depth put in unique situations. I really like Maguire's writing style and can't wait to read more.
