Publisher's Summary

After losing his parents in the Floating Castle Incident, the sensitive and mannered Chris Buckley has spent six years raising his magically talented little sister, Rosemary, on the savings that his once-wealthy family left behind. But that money is drying up, and Chris finds himself with no choice but to seek out work in Darrington City as it spirals into a depression. The only employer willing to consider his empty resume is Olivia Faraday, the manic Deathsniffer. Olivia's special magical gift gives her a heightened intuition which makes her invaluable in hunting down murderers.
When a Duchess of the mysterious Old Blooded Nobility calls on Olivia to solve the mystery of her dead husband, Chris finds himself tangled in Olivia Faraday's daily life and unable to extract himself from the macabre questions of the investigation. His involvement grows more complicated as political forces in Darrington close around Rosemary, seeing her as a tool that can be used to end the depression at the cost of her freedom - or even her life.

Looking forward to the next one.

I bought this about 3 weeks ago, but books that I had been waiting for, were released so I kept putting it off. I finally got to it and I must say, it was different, in topic and setting. It took a bit to evolve but was worth it. I hadn't noticed it was labeled "Book 1", so when I saw that, I was very excited. When the second book comes out, I won't have to re-read this one, unless I want to because for me, it was quite different from other fantasy stories I read. It was unique tale and most enjoyable. Romy Nordlinger read very well, occasionally I got the characters mixed up but not enough to affect the story. It is just exactly what the title says and a lot more.

I liked the overall concept of the book. However found it a bit drawn out and dragged in spots. The Narrator did a good job with the characters, which helped keep me interested til the end.
