The Gutter Prayer

Can know Rat is a Ghoul whose people haunt the city's underworld Spar is a Stone Man subject to a terrible disease that is slowly petrifying his flesh Chance has brought them together but their friendship could be all that stands in the way of total armageddon. This novel is what would happen if Peter McLean married HP Lovecraft and they had a book baby who became a rebellious teenager who crushed hard on a pretty little thing called Mistborn until it learned it could never be loved in return because of its inherently monstrous nature then went on to grow old in bitter lonelinessThat is to say it has all of Lovecraft s dark atmosphere and monsters and Peter McLean s knack for prose that makes truly ruthless storytelling unexpectedly light and adventurous and is garnished in the intense creativity of fantasy setting and magic we were treated to in MistbornThe only moment I felt a little dubious was in the beginning when the prologue begins in present tense second person perspective which I find really tedious to read because it pulls me out of the story continuously Fortunately chapter one dispenses with that in favor of comfortable third person As a bonus the audiobook is narrated wonderfully by John Banks so for a long time it felt like I was listening to Josiah Bancroft s Senlin read the story to me Seeing as I love Senlin this was a feature not a bug As a very small point I was a bit annoyed that I never learned virtually any of the characters ages If they were mentioned in the prose it must have been only once and too fast or subtle for me to catch As such I was confused a few times by some of the relationships between the characters such as when a character I thought was older expressed a longing for intimacy for a character I thought was a lot younger It distracted me a bit before I realized I d never actually heard the narrative give their ages and for all I knew they were roughly the same age Not a big deal but if I could make one change it would have been to make that clearer or repeated once or twiceThis is the 2019 release to beat for best title the one other good books of the year will be measured against The book takes hold of you immediately and doesn t let go I have a huge soft spot for the old occult inspired dark fantasy wrapped in a modern coating and this book delivers that like a hammer There are talismans dark gods middling gods trapped gods alchemists ghouls like you ve never read them before worm creatures souls for energy sentient objects stone men worm men steampunk men clever women powerful women rudimentary pistols saints wielding flame swords mad scientists sudden but inevitable betrayals the list goes on and on There s swearing lots of it There is just so so much to love in this bookI won t lie to you people die I for one felt the darkness in this book early on which caused me to create a certain unconscious limit to how attached I could become to the characters Suffice to say I don t regret doing soGosh I can t that s it I have no to say This book is wonderful an absolute delight to read and already a highlight of my reading year I hope it gets better from here but this book sets the bar crazy high Blackmailed By Daddy rebellious teenager who
