Fun and were-lions
Africa, supernatural, lore, fantasy, steampunk, cozy-mystery, humor
Weirdly good. Set in time around the turn of the 20th century, yet filled with fantastic creatures and more. The characters are great fun and the lore of the continent of Africa is fascinating. There's plenty of subtle and overt humor, and the situational humor is guaranteed to have any reader snorting their caffeine. The publisher's blurb gives hints and there is no need for spoilers, just enjoy the unraveling of the mystery.

Glad I took a chance!
I normally just use my credits on books by writers I know and reserve any risk-taking for books from the public library. However, a friend at work, who frequently gives me book recommendations, suggested this one about three times. I finally bought it and I'm glad I did. I enjoyed it so much, I bought the second one (also highly recommended by my friend).
