Summary: It is Victorian 1880 in London, and the time of the Great Game when Britain and Russia struggled over control over Afghanistan, when the series‘ heroes need to catch a supernatural opponent. Soon, their enemy – the adventurous Russian Czarina – joins their force, because the Czar and the Empress both are in danger of taken over by the Afghan wizard.
Review: The two main protagonists form a kind of Sherlock and Watson. Far more engaging and entertaining was the Russian Czarina Maria Feodorovna, an adventuress with a history with those two Victorian gentlemen. Djinns, warlocks, shooting mixed in the London atmosphere. Abrahams knows how to catch your attention, provides a fluid narration. Read this in between longer novels to clean your thoughts.
