I liked this book a lot, but I loved the ending. I thought it was amazing. So many authors blow the end, M.R. Carey nailed it.

The ending was perfection.

I agree. It was one of those good books which wasn't really my sort of thing, but that ending was 5 stars.

Nice review of a great book. I agree that it's best read cold. I figure if you're not hooked by the end of the first chapter then move on and read something different - but I doubt many people will do that.
This book IS my sort of thing, and I absolutely loved it. It's probably going to be my "best of 2015".

If you're into paranormal mystery at all, you should look into his Felix Castor series starting with "The Devil You Know". His characters are intricate and gorgeously imperfect and I still don't understand how he can draw such vivid pictures with so few words. The plots are really good, too, and the overall arc is beautiful.

I agree with everything everyone else already said. I loved the snarky dialogue and adored the ending and Brainycat is spot on about Castor. Steel Seraglio is pretty awesome too.
This is up for the Clarke...I hope it wins!

Thanks for the recommendation. I desperately need something fantastic to read.
