Half-Resurrection Blues - Daniel José Older

I am reading this for the Diverse Voices bingo square. The main character, Carlos Delacruz, is an "Inbetweener" who has been partially resurrected from a death - and life - that he remembers basically nothing about. It's set in Brooklyn, NY, which made me realize that New York is a setting that I don't see often in Urban Fantasy. That may well be a result of my reading choices, but now that I think about it, that's weird, right? I read series set in London, Atlanta, Chicago, California, but I can't think of anything else set in NYC.

 

I mean what could be a better setting for UF than NYC, with its rich and incredibly diverse population?

 

So far, the writing is breezy and engaging.
