Reading progress update: I've read 92 out of 97 pages.
The Dark Victorian: Risen Volume One - Elizabeth Watasin

Done, except for an excerpt of the next work in the series.

 

I'm going to have to think about my final rating for this. At the moment, I'm debating between 2.5 and 3 stars. Something about Watasin's writing didn't work for me - I often found myself having to reread passages because I had trouble following what was going on, and I kept forgetting the characters who weren't Art or Jim. The world and characters felt like they were stuffed into a container too small for them, but I did at least find them intriguing, enough that I'm tempted to give the next work in the series a shot, despite my issues with this first one. It's four times longer, which might be a good thing if Watasin does better with longer works, or it could end up being a slog.

 

Well, that's another Bingo square taken care of. This would work for Ghost, Darkest London, Supernatural, The Dead Will Walk, and Terrifying Women. I've already marked Terrifying Women, and all the others except Ghost haven't been called yet, so I'll be marking Ghost.

The Dark Victorian: Risen Volume One - Elizabeth Watasin

I think this is approximately where I stopped reading this morning. It's clearer now that, yes, this will work for the Ghost square, although the character still isn't quite what I'd normally think of as a ghost: Artifice is referred to as an artificial ghost and has the ability to take ghostly form and move through walls, but she spends most of her time solid.

I picked this up a while back after several reviews here on Booklikes put it on my radar. I decided to read this for Halloween Bingo because 1) it's short and 2) it looked like it would qualify for several squares. I was hoping to use it for the Ghost square, but so far it's a better candidate for squares that haven't been called yet, The Dead Will Walk (several reanimated cats and a horse), Supernatural, and Darkest London. Nothing yet that I'd say qualifies as a ghost.

 

So far this isn't necessarily bad, but it's not grabbing me enough to make me want the rest of the series. Still plenty of time, though.
