Eddie Drood is back in an eerie and imaginative new adventure. Green blends Lovecraftian mystery with the worldbuilding power of H.G. Wells, adding his own flair to create a quick-witted, fast-paced story. Though necessary exposition slows down the opening scenes, the overall result is a cracking good emotional read that reveals some shocking secrets and creates anticipation for the next book.

After an investigation for The Department of the Uncanny goes awry, Eddie and his beloved, the powerful witch Molly Metcalf, are assigned to infiltrate the Casino Infernale, hosted by the Shadow Bank, where some of the most powerful supernatural villains play for the highest stakes. Their goal? Bring down the Shadow Bank. But the Casino deals in souls, and it isn’t long before Eddie realizes there are some games that just can’t be won. (ROC, Jun., 384 pp., $26.95)
