A fun fantasy book set in a dystopian Edinburgh. The protagonist – Ropa – can talk to the dead, carry messages for them, and gets enlisted to help find a missing child. She discovers children are having their life forced sucked from them, and has to rescue them as best she can.
The world has a sort-of scientific form of magic (plus a secret library to study it), but also feels very grounded in the geography of Edinburgh.
I enjoyed the book, but I didn’t love it.
