(I received this book for free as part of Goodreads First Reads giveaways).

I had to think about what rating to give this book. In the end, I decided on four stars. This book was fairly well-written and easy to read, but I had a few minor issues with it.
Archie's character was fairly interesting, but I felt there wasn't really much revealed of his character. It almost felt as if I'd come in partway through the storyline, though I'm not sure if there were any books preceding this one.
The other characters were fairly well-written, though a few seemed unnaturally hostile. The police work was quite intriguing and the mystery kept me engaged long enough to keep reading throughout the book.
I do think there wasn't enough information given about the Children of Eli. Even by the end of the book, I didn't know much more about their history than I had while reading.
I did like the fact that not all of the characters' motives were black and white. A few acted in unexpected ways that still worked for them, sometimes even going completely against the opinions I'd formed of them. There were parts of this book that managed to surprise me. I didn't see everything coming.
I did really like Delia as a character. I would have liked to see more of her. Streya was a really strange character. I'm still not sure what to make of her.
The supernatural/paranormal elements were fairly interesting, though I would have liked to see a bit more of them. I did also notice a lot of summarising of what people were saying, rather than their dialogue being written out.
I would probably be interested in reading the other books in this series at some point in the future. It would be nice to see more of the characters.

Read information about the authorI was born in Liverpool, England and grew up in southern Ontario, Canada. I dropped out of high school but later returned to university for degrees in anthropology and archaeology. In addition to the Archie Stevens Mysteries, I have authored and co-authored fourteen popular history and geography textbooks. I like nature and birding and write a bird blog called Bird Noetz (https://michaelcrannyblog.com/).
As a mystery writer I love creating characters and situations, and seeing if my characters can get themselves out of the predicaments I've got them into
