Synopsis

It is 1855, and Nathaniel Hood walks between two worlds.

As the Watchmage of New York City, Nathaniel is charged with protecting, regulating, and administering justice to the myriad supernatural beings immigrating to the city. When his policeman son, Jonas, is brutally beaten by Veil Dwellers while investigating a kidnapping, Nathaniel breaks his vow not to interfere with mundane society and joins the search.

Together and apart, the father and son uncover the secret lives of the supernatural and the broken lives on the Bowery, only to find a terrible secret.

The Watchmage of Old New York–Book 1 of The Watchmage Chronicles–is an expansion of the award-winning serial of the same name. It’s a blend of fantasy, history, humor, and mystery, wrapped in a vivid mid-19th century New York.

***Derek – #NerdGirlDad’s  Review***
The story is a good one, except that I felt it would have been a better read if nearer to 200 pages instead of over 300. The author keeps to his rules in Nathaniel’s world and you will have no trouble identifying with him. Whilst this storey does not end in a cliff hanger, I guarantee that the ending will be a surprise: you will not see the explanation of the kidnapping of the baby as something you thought of yourself At least I didn’t – – and I usually do.
