There are certainly areas of Prague that inspire thoughts of magic. It seems as if the many spires and churches don't only jostle for space with modern glass structures but with time itself and the authors of this book manage to use all the intriguing aspects of Prague's architecture and it's colourful history as a back drop for a great novel.
The Beethoven obsessed protagonist Charlotte has a lot of character, she doesn't seem particularity appreciative of her surrounding, expect perhaps the 'sexy stabber' statue at the gate, but she's sassy and likeable.
The book doesn’t contain the sort of 'magic' some readers might expect, but alchemy, time travel, intrigue, secret tunnels could never disappoint so if you enjoy a good mystery with twist then this book is well worth a listen.
