What’s it about?
The storyis set in 1899 in New York City and revolves around the relationship between two mythical creatures.  It is a mix of fantasy and historical fiction.

What did it make me think about?
I found the fantasy aspect really interesting.   To combine the mystical characters and the city of New York in 1899 was quite a leap.  What an imagination the author has!

Should I read it?
Lots of people I know loved this book.  I enjoyed it but I found myself wishing I were finished so I could start a new book.  Could have been my mood….
