I love and have always loved reading. I usually read one at once but at times I will read two. I have a book end which states 'Caution! Bookworms bite when disturbed.

The Gods of Gotham - Lyndsay Faye
I first heard about Lyndsay Faye at the Theakston's Crime Festival when she featured on one of the panels. Thought that her books sounded good so bought this one and WOW it doesn't disappoint.
Very atmospheric, you could almost smell and hear 1840s New York in a cracking storyline.
I thought I had guessed the outcome so many times throughout the book, but didn't get it all. There were so many twists and turns, especially in the second half.
The flash terminology is easy enough to understand and there is a lexicon at the start of the book if you need it.
I wish I had read this book whilst I was on holiday in New York then I could see the buildings, if they still stand and areas featured. I had to make do with the internet though and the very adequate pictures in my head. I will definitely be reading 'Seven for a Secret' the next in the series soon.
