Nonhumans are not welcome in the Princedom of northern Portugal at the turn of the last century, which means that Duilio Ferreira and his family must tread carefully, despite their immense wealth. Duilio's mother is a selkie, but he has instead inherited his father's ability as a seer, which he uses to assist the police. When magical creatures are being murdered in the Golden City, Duilio is uniquely placed to investigate. VERDICT In addition to the wonderfully painted picture of an alternate-history Portugal in 1902, this title has an added benefit of highlighting a growing romance between Duilio and the siren Oriana (heroine of the series debut The Golden City) and a compelling mystery that draws Duilio into royal politics.
