There is a whole lot of stuff in this book; probably more than really necessary, because the people in it are so interesting. I was actually sort of hoping Ms Couchman would ease off on the action a bit and just run with them a bit, but I never wasn’t entertained. Let’s see, we start with a hardass witch in Albany, NY, and then we get a demon and a smart rat and an Intuitive and a Magician and an alternate-reality portal and a grimoire and dragons and giant spiders and, yeah, there’s more, but you get the idea. It’s even coherent, mostly.
It’s her first & only book. Discovering someone with this much talent just getting started, what a stroke of luck.
