This book is enthralling and morose....I kinda loved it. No character was without blame and there was a little layer of hope throughout the novel. Whether or not that hope pans'll have to read to find out!
I want more of something like it, though not a sequel. Just...more.

Ivy Gamble is a PI. Her twin sister is a professor at an elite magic school. Ivy can't wield magic, and is not at all bitter about it, but when a murder occurs at the school, she is pulled back into a world she has decidedly mixed feelings for. Sharp, gritty, dark, and sardonic; an excellent mix of fantasy and gumshoe mystery.
