I’ve been enjoying this series a lot, but some reviews on Goodreads made it sound like this was one of the weaker entries in the series. I actually quite enjoyed it, possibly because I had tempered my expectations. This time Eve is the narrator, a character that has so far mostly only appeared as a topic of conversation since she is dead. However, Armstrong opened the door to the afterworld in Industrial Magic, so Eve’s appearance is not a complete surprise. Since Eve is a ghost, this means that there is a limit on how many of the other characters show up in the novel, but Eve’s motivations are driven by her daughter’s safety so I actually enjoyed this slightly related side story. Besides, Jaime Vegas is a necromancer so Eve soon convinces her to help, and it was fun to see more of her.
