Cover of Creatures of Will and Temper by Molly Tanzer.NPR: When someone pulls [Urban Fantasy] off as well as Molly Tanzer in her new novel, Creatures of Will and Temper, it’s worth checking out just to see the restraint and careful worldbuilding gymnastics required. She has created a Victorian England which is…the mother of our modern world, by turns smoky, smutty, gross and backward, then beautiful, wondrous and louche with the turn of a corner.

Tanzer [has] exceptional grace with writing complex female relationships…The three women at the center of Tanzer’s story each entered into it looking for something. They’re each more than they appear at the start, and less of the worst things you think of them.

By the end, none of them will find (or be) exactly what you expect.
