Sometimes I think I'm in a reading slump but it's just that I'm not reading the right books at the right time. This should be right in my wheelhouse but the narrative feels wandering and loose... I can't get into it. The deal breaker was the scene where Rachel negotiates with a demon. I hate that feeling of dread, that one ill-advised word could put her into more debt... just the overhanging miasma. So I'm setting this book aside for now.
