This is my favorite of the books set in the world of New Amsterdam so far. Chronologically, it takes place after New Amsterdam and before Seven for a Secret, and if you haven't read any of the books yet, I would read them in chronological order as opposed to the order in which they were published. Once of my favorite things about this series is the world in which it is set, and this book gives us a fascinating glimpse into the Russia of this world, especially Moscow and its environs. There are actually two story-lines occurring, one set after the events of New Amsterdam, and one set about six years prior (I forget the exact number, but it was before Sebastian traveled to New Amsterdam), and they are linked together. It was sometimes a bit confusing as the book jumped back and forth between them, but the fact that they were set in different seasons helped a lot. I found the descriptions of the cold of the Russian winter to be especially vivid - brrrrrr. I'm looking forward to the next story.
