Bronze GodsMurdered with the same type of infernal device the entire CID must face the truth There’s a madman on the loose twining magic and blood and only Mikani and Ritsuko can unravel the intricate lethal conspiracy before the Royale killer completes his macabre plan unleashing old forbidden magic on an unsuspecting populace If the maniac succeeds it could mean the end of everything 35 of 5 stars at The BiblioSanctum an offbeat curious little novel I wasn’t surprised to discover that it was a Victorian inspired steampunk urban fantasy type mystery but it’s the other little pleasures thrown in that endeared me to this book The sprinkling of magical elements combined with other fantasy aspects make the world of Bronze Gods special and enchanting Meet Janus Mikani and Celeste Ritsuko a detective team for the Criminal Investigation Department He is a magical expert and brings his own uncanny Ferisher they're like the Fae powers to the case She is the first female detective in her division and pushes herself to prove herself Together they are tasked to solve the disappearance of a young girl from a noble house and catch the one responsible before he can strike againBut there’s to this story than just police work If you enjoy a little romance or like a bit of sexual tension to spice things up then you’re in for a treat I got a major “Mulder and Scully” vibe from Mikani and Ritsuko with their mutual attraction and feelings for each other smoldering beneath the surface gradually warming up in a slow burn that’s both oh so sweet and delicious The writing team of Ann Aguirre and her husband Andres Aguirre has succeeded in writing a very convincing romance between the two main charactersSo here you have awesome world check awesome characters check and awesome chemistry between said characters check But what I struggled with a little was the plot and pacing If you’re a mystery buff you’ll probably find yourself frustrated by the seemingly lackadaisical pace of the investigation not to mention the police procedural aspects are a bit light To be fair a full out detective story isn’t what Bronze Gods was meant to be but just one major facet of the story I was also a bit dissatisfied by the ending and the “twist” regarding one of the suspects but seeing as that took place in the final scenes it didn’t take away from my overall enjoyment of the book too muchMore importantly Bronze Gods was an entertaining and action filled read with well developed characters that actually gave me reasons to continue caring about their unresolved relationship I like how there is no rush to get Mikani and Ritsuko together because when it finally happens I'm sure it’ll just be all the satisfying I want to continue the series to see what other mysteries our duo will have to solve but I’m also very interested in seeing where their feelings for each other will eventually take them
