Publisher's Summary

In 1925, earthquakes and a rising sea level left Lower Manhattan submerged under more than 30 feet of water, so that its residents began to call it the Drowning City. Those unwilling to abandon their homes created a new life on streets turned to canals and in buildings whose first three stories were underwater. Fifty years have passed since then, and the Drowning City is full of scavengers and water rats, poor people trying to eke out an existence, and those too proud or stubborn to be defeated by circumstance.
Among them are 14-year-old Molly McHugh and her friend and employer, Felix Orlov. Once upon a time Orlov the Conjuror was a celebrated stage magician, but now he is an old man, a psychic medium, contacting the spirits of the departed for the grieving loved ones left behind. When a séance goes horribly wrong, Felix Orlov is abducted by strange men wearing gas masks and rubber suits, and Molly soon finds herself on the run. Her flight will lead her into the company of a mysterious man, and his stalwart sidekick, Joe Golem, whose own past is a mystery to him, but who walks his own dreams as a man of stone and clay, brought to life for the sole purpose of hunting witches.

Great Graphic Novel come to life!

Written by the author who brought Hell Boy to life, Joe Golem is a great steampunk-ish novel about a golem, who happens to be a detective.
It's not War and Peace, but a YA story with engaging characters. Easy listening.
Give it a try!!

Swept Away

A brilliantly creative setting populated with vividly imagined characters! Not too sure about some of the more lovecraftian elements of the story though. The narrator did an excellent job of capturing all the nuances necessary to propel the narrative forward.
