Yet life continues among the wreckage. The citizens retain their irrepressible appetite for novelty and distraction, and The Great Houses still vie for dominion over France's once grand capital.
House Silverspires, previously the leader of those power games, now lies in disarray. Its magic is ailing; its founder, Morningstar, has been missing for decades; and now something from the shadows stalks its people inside their very own walls.
Within the House, three very different people must come together: a naive but powerful Fallen, an alchemist with a self-destructive addiction, and a resentful young man wielding spells from the Far East. They may be Silverspires' salvation or the architects of its last, irreversible fall....

Dark, An Acquired Taste
I did not enjoy the book; it was so dark and grim with no respite for warmth, light, love or victory. The characters were not well developed, if at all and there's no sufficient explanation as to the emergence and state of being of the world so described in the story. As a reader, you're left with so many unanswered questions, unable to comfortably connect all the characters; it is almost as if you were eavesdropping or merely stumbled upon a discussion or tale which you were never intended to be privy to. This is a story with no proper beginning or end and one you'll either hate or struggle to like.
This is not a book I'd recommend or read ever again.

Lovely world building, a murder mystery that rattles along and a satisfying if bittersweet ending.
Narration was good and understandable at X1.5 playback speed.
