The Gutter Prayer by Gareth Hanrahan turns urban fantasy epic. Set in a fully realized city with living nightmares, we experience a beautiful story about the corruption of power and the cost of friendship.
It usually takes me two to three days to finish an average-sized book. The Gutter Prayer took me two weeks. Now you may think that I struggled to finish it, but that couldn't be further from the truth. I tried to savor it for as long as I could, because although this is just my first read for 2019 and we're only in January, I'm confident that I won't find a greater book this year.
