An urban fantasy with a difference; the fantasy city is a port threatened by pirates from without and religious fanatics from within. Our protagonist is a gay policewoman who survives murder and gets caught up in a plot to destroy the city.

It was just as well that I went into this novel without a lot of preconceptions, since I'm still processing what I just read. In as much as I had expectations, I thought this was going to be some sort of post-apocalyptic story of climate collapse, but the more I read the more that this novel seemed like some sort of secondary-world fantasy; one with really sharp edges.

This was a fun, very queer, quick read. That being said, you never really get to know anyone and often it felt like you were just watching things happen to characters that aren't really fleshed out. I also felt like the last 20% of the book was rushed and tacked on. The romance especially which was used as a last minute gotcha moment that didn't land.
