Pretty much everything here originally appeared at my actual blog: By Singing Light. I particularly focus on upper middle-grade and young adult books. I also enjoy adult genre books, especially speculative fiction.

The Inquisitor's Apprentice

The Inquisitor’s Apprentice - Mark Edward Geyer, Chris Moriarty

Alternate New York in the early 20th century, with magic! Sacha Kessler is a young Jewish boy who gets apprenticed to a New York Police Inquisitor. Fun period details, illustrations that reminded me strongly of the first All of a Kind Family book, and nice characters. I did wish at a certain point that Sacha would just get over his nerves and tell the Inquisitor his secret, because I didn’t quite buy the reason for his not having done so. But that’s the only quibble I had, and it’s a minor one.
