I just finished this book. I bought it because it was about magic, New Orleans, and because the author of the Sandman Slim books, Richard Kadrey wrote a blurb on the back, which I should know, by now, doesn’t really mean anything.
The book was slow, methodical, plodding and I can’t actually believe I finished it. It was repetitive and did I mention slow? I would not recommend it. Something big was missing…power.
