Review

Rating: 6

Growing up in turn-of-the-century New York can be difficult, but Sacha Kessler is unprepared for the turns his life takes when it’s discovered he can see witches (or, more properly, active use of magic) and is apprenticed to the NYPD’s Inquisitors. In this alternate history, Inquisitors are responsible for policing magical crime. Young Sacha is apprenticed to Inquisitor Maximillian Wolf along with a young girl by the name of Lily Astral. Together, they must figure out who’s trying to kill Thomas Edison and foil the plans of J.P. Morgaunt. An entertaining and fast-moving read reminiscent of a YA version of Victoria Thompson’s Gaslight Mysteries (starting with Murder on Astor Place).
