    Brilliant world-building and characterisation.

    Yannia Wilde is a newbie private detective. She is also one of the Wild Folk – who fall at the bottom of the magic hierarchy – and not comfortable with the sensory overload of either Old London (magic) or New London (human). With the help of her best friend and apprentice, Karrion (a Bird Shaman), Yannia sets about trying to prove the innocence (and save the life) of a man declared guilty by one of the infallible Heralds of Justice. Gradually, other help appears in the form of Jamie (a human Met Officer), Lady Bergamon (a Plant Shaman), and Wisheart (a suspected Heart Spirit). I adore Laakso’s characters. They, themselves, are fallible (Yannia is the first character I have ever encountered with Elhers Danlos Syndrome), and that, ironically, makes them all the more human. Yannia’s world, too, is built on believable foundations, and everything seems to fit seamlessly. No plot holes here, despite a myriad intricate connections. Hugely looking forward to reading the sequel.
