In a 19th century unlike our own, the shadowy assassin known as the Bookman moves unseen. His weapons are books; his enemies are many. And when Orphan, a young man with a mysterious past, loses his love to the sinister machinations of the Bookman, Orphan would stop at nothing to bring her back from the dead. In The Bookman , World Fantasy Award winner Lavie Tidhar writes a love letter to books, and to the serial literature of the Victorian era: full of hair-breadth escapes and derring-dos, pirates and automatons, assassins and poets, a world in which real life authors mingle freely with their fictional creations ? and where nothing is quite as it seems. New 2016 edition includes the novelette "Murder in the Cathedral". Discover, truthfully, what actually happened when Orphan visited Paris. File Under : Steampunk [Alternate Victorian London | Reptilian royalty | Diabolical anarchists | Extraordinary adventure!] From the Trade Paperback edition.

I liked this author's writing style, and I was initially engaged in the story. But I was quickly turned off by the placement of actual historical figures into this alternate reality. I am okay with the alternate reality, but something about dropping real people into it didn't work for me.
