Description from Goodreads:
In Chiaroscuro it’s important to keep the faith.
When the Temples north of Chiaroscuro are burned and followers of the Sun Goddess are murdered, Catherine, a bard of the Ealdoth Temple, sets out to find those responsible and to bring them to justice. With only the help of a traveling group of minstrels and a retired fae investigator, Catherine must solve the mystery before more people are killed.
So saddle up your clockwork mount, buckle on your electro-dagger, and join Catherine as she finds herself pitted against members of her own Temple, rogue members of the Seelie Court, and a seemingly unstoppable army of undead.
Thank you to Netgalley and Chris Pavesic for the eARC I received in exchange for an honest review. The opinions expressed in this review belong solely to Plot Monster.
Unquiet Dead is an eclectic blend of various genres that is sure to keep the reader wondering. Horror. Fantasy. Steampunk. This book has it all.
It is extremely detailed and it is easy to miss pertinent facts if you are not paying attention. Some parts I had to reread in order to make sure I was adequately absorbing the story. With that being said it is not a particularly difficult read.
If you are bored with the same old story lines and tropes in your genre of choice, I assure you that you will thoroughly enjoy the originality of this book.
It is a little on the short side and there are a few elements that leave more questions than answers. However, I do not believe that this takes away from the reader’s enjoyment but rather leaves them wanting more.
I would recommend this book to fans of fantasy and steampunk.
