This novel has a great premise, and Emrys does impressive worldbuilding on top of Lovecraft’s existing canon. The protagonist was relatable and interesting throughout. I did feel there were a few too many characters though, and many of them seemed to serve similar roles in the story. The two standouts were a mind swapped professor and the protagonist’s employer. I also wished the novel had a slightly more exciting climax. The stakes just never felt very high. That said, I would certainly read the other books in this series because I enjoyed the world Emrys detailed.
