For a novella, this feels suspiciously long. It’s not as big as Aaronovitch’s full-length novels in this series, but with 200 densely printed pages, I’ve certainly read shorter novels by other authors.
This time out we follow Reynolds, the American FBI agent who investigates magic-related occurrences, as she’s sent to look into a weird telephone summons from a former colleague.
The story does a great job of expanding the world and seeing more about how yet another country deals with things (after the UK in the main series, and Germany in a previous novella).
It’s also a really high-energy little story that keeps up the pace and action throughout.
