Our Bookseller says:
Let me just say…. thank God I’m a country boy. New York City sounds like a great place to visit, but a real pain in the ass to live in. And that’s BEFORE it gained mystic sentience.
The City We Became is urban fantasy about fitting in, the importance of memory, and Lovecraftian horrors destroying The City That Never Sleeps! Its lone defenders are a newly-awakened hodgepodge of randos with NO clue what they’re doing. Luckily, New Yorkers are born knowing how to do some damage. With umbrella, with rap battles, and with an intricate understanding of institutional racism, these would-be heroes are a delight to watch and a force to be reckoned with. — Terry
