Genre: Fantasy

This is a collection of six short stories and novellas centered around the characters Sebastien de Ulloa and Abigail Irene Garrett. The two are detectives in the city of New Amsterdam at the beginning of the twentieth century. The story takes place in an alternative historical Victorian period where the American Revolution failed and England still controls the colonies in North America. Overall, a very good book with entertaining characters and plots. The stories could have been expanded to help bring out the nuances of the world's unique history and magic.
