    The year is 1897, the days before January 1, 1898 That was the day that New York, Brooklyn, Queens, Staten Island and the East Bronx will be merged in the Great New York City The city is protected by the ordinary police force, but also by Metropolitan Witch Police, MWP, which deals with magic related crimes Because New York is full of magic and hexes A hex can be used as a lock, as an alarm, as protection etc.The ordinary police force is highly corrupted and not really accepted by most civil The year is 1897, the days before January 1, 1898 That was the day that New York, Brooklyn, Queens, Staten Island and the East Bronx will be merged in the Great New York City The city is protected by the ordinary police force, but also by Metropolitan Witch Police, MWP, which deals with magic related crimes Because New York is full of magic and hexes A hex can be used as a lock, as an alarm, as protection etc.The ordinary police force is highly corrupted and not really accepted by most civilians MWP is honorable and treats equally women and men, witches and familiars of any form.The MWP headquarters are full of witches and familiars Familiars are basically shifters who mostly prefer their animal form and they can enhance the magic of witches Especially, when the right familiar is bonded with his her witch the magic they will produce will be off the charts Tom Halloran is a cop in the ordinary police force He is man with many secrets a few years ago used to be an outlaw, his name was Liam, he was a member of the O Connell tunnel gang, he is a witch and a hexbreaker But Tom is really a good, decent man He has reinvented himself and now he just wants to be an ordinary, boring, unnoticeable policeman Cicero is a cultured, bohemian familiar who works for MWP Deep down, he is truly a cute black cat When Tom and Cicero are brought together for a common investigation, Cicero is shocked The rough, not very bright Irishman is his witch.I love the fact that the writer mixes real events with paranormal fiction It made me curious about the historical events of that particular period in New York The atmosphere of the book reminded me of the film Gangs of New York , while the paranormal side of the book was different from the shifters books I normally read.Unexpectedand unique

    NYC circa 1895, AU.This was fun and since I snatched it up on sale for 99 cents, I m pretty happy Hawk is a smooth writer and does paranormal and action equally well The history in Widdershins was so seamless that it almost disappeared, but here it plays a bigger role and shines bright From the tenements to Tammany Hall to Commissioner Roosevelt to fairy clubs, it weaves the threads of history into a new tapestry of witchcraft.Hawk excels at expanding characters that on first blush appear sim NYC circa 1895, AU.This was fun and since I snatched it up on sale for 99 cents, I m pretty happy Hawk is a smooth writer and does paranormal and action equally well The history in Widdershins was so seamless that it almost disappeared, but here it plays a bigger role and shines bright From the tenements to Tammany Hall to Commissioner Roosevelt to fairy clubs, it weaves the threads of history into a new tapestry of witchcraft.Hawk excels at expanding characters that on first blush appear simple, one dimensional, into complex individuals Taking the motif of a brawny, has no trouble using his fists and an effete intellectual and spinning their lives out to illuminate the multitude of facets which actually comprise that singular pane the reader first sees The device of hexes is pretty clever and an interesting take on witchcraft Throw in the soulmate aspect of the witch and their familiar, and it s rather romantic Not that all things can t be perverted, and it is all the little twists where Hawk takes something and keeps turning it to show all the aspects that enrich the story Overall, a story of opposites attract on the less glitzy side of The Gilded Age
