It was interesting the “stranger” setting, Berlin, Germany, instead of the usual UK. Considering the plot development, I think the author needed a place with a recent political upturn, and, yes, maybe the right folklore to give an additional layer to the story.
The plot, the twists, were the principal elements of the story, more than the love story between Leon and Christoph, but, even if secondary to the plot, I really enjoyed their relationship, Leon was this mix of cute and harsh angle, and Christoph was like the best brooding heroes of the gothic novels from the past.
I’m not sure if the author will like to revisit some of the supporting characters, but she gave them enough deepness to have at least 3 or 4 possible developments.
