This one really gripped me. I could not put it down. I read most of it in one day, finally putting it down when I was getting a headache from being so tired and reading for so long. It's a fantasy with a mystery set in an alternative Victorian-like era. Cars have just been introduced. There are telephones, cameras, and gadgets that run on electricity-like "aether." There are mages, rich and powerful people who wield magic, and witches, poor and middle-class people who wield magic. Mages remain hidden from the public and witches are persecuted. And there are magical people from another dimension. This book won the World Fantasy Award in 2019, and was nominated for a bunch of other awards, including the Lambda Literary Award.
