Whilst this title is cited as Science Fiction to be honest I term it more along the lines of Alternate Urban Fantasy as it's a recognisable world with some startling changes. If you love the weird and wonderful world of Steampunk there's a slightly more organic feel than that here, if you like a story of intriguing double dealing, yep that's in there too. Finally if you want a story with an outstanding lead character that is fully formed with flaws as well as boons all wrapped up in a contradictory nature then you really can't do better than Jacob Burn.

All in this was a lot of fun to read and whilst I haven't read the others in the series I didn't feel alienated in any way. If anything the welcoming nature of this title is such that I really will have to seek out Jacob's earlier exploits in order to get a fuller flavour alongside understanding of the twisted nature of this city. Great fun.

Not quite as good as The Heart of Veridon, but in Jake Burns a dynamic and wry hero, and Wilson is a great and weird sidekick . A well-imagined world, but I've never been keen on deus ex machina endings. Still, there's always the third novel to read.......
