I really wish I could say I enjoyed this as much as Everless. The ending is the strongest part of the book - nicely wrapped-up but with the lingering suggestion that there is more to the story - and yet even that couldn't save it for me.

It's a truth universally acknowledged that when rich people move into the hood, where it's a little bit broken and a little bit forgotten, the first thing they want to do is clean it up.

Along the borders of this world lie others.
