In an alternate Cairo, humans live and work alongside otherworldly beings; the Ministry of Alchemy, Enchantments and Supernatural Entities handles the issues that can arise between the magical and the mundane. Senior Agent Hamed Nasr shows his new partner Agent Onsi Youssef the ropes of investigation when they are called to subdue a dangerous, possessed tram car.

My heart is so full. Do you know how fucking rare it is to see women working together from a male perspective? A story from the point of view of a man but the women pass every test? Not only the Bechtel but many other I can't remember now. How rare it is to see it in a story which has 'traditional' gender roles. How rare it is to see it in a story where religion is part of peoples lifes.

How rare that a man wrote this. (I assume).

My heart is full and my eyes are full of tears because this was also just such a Fun story. It was fun, quick, humorous and I wish more stories were like this. Such a unexpected delight which led to unexpected cry. Both are welcome.

There were certain things I really enjoyed because of the steampunk element.

Read for the reading rush.

Stars: 3.75

I didn't realize until after I turned the last page that this was by the same gentleman who wrote [b:The Black God's Drums|38118138|The Black God's Drums|P. Djèlí Clark|https://i.gr-assets.com/images/S/compressed.photo.goodreads.com/books/1521211814l/38118138._SY75_.jpg|58277606], but that makes so much sense because the entire time I was reading it I was comparing it to last year and this being one of the only two pieces I felt did so well with cultural POV. The books drops you square in another culture (Cairo, in the 1920's-ish), with habits, vocab, religion, history, sects (of class, religion, and professions), and style and expect you to learn on the fly, never stopping to spoon feed you breakdowns.

I really, really might need to go get [b:A Master of Djinn|52504334|A Master of Djinn|P. Djèlí Clark|https://s.gr-assets.com/assets/nophoto/book/50x75-a91bf249278a81aabab721ef782c4a74.png|78021845] & [b:A Dead Djinn in Cairo|29635542|A Dead Djinn in Cairo|P.

Author P. Djeli Clark came onto my radar when I heard some great things about his new novella Ring Shout which releases in October of this year and then when I saw that this novella was nominated for the Nebula award, I knew I had to read this one. I also managed to read the short story A Dead Djinn in Cairo a few days ago and completely fell in love with the setting which is the same in this novella as well. And I’m so happy I got to be back in this wonderful setting mystical Egypt again.

The haunting and the mystery of the supernatural being is still not what impressed me the most here. It’s the world which continues to mesmerize me and I was even more impressed this time to see how culturally diverse it is and the technological and magical marvels of this booming metropolis. And added to this beautiful setting is the backdrop of the suffragette movement in Egypt and even though it’s shown with more rose tinted glasses than what happened in our real world, I just loved watching a more hopeful and progressive world in this story.

While the previous short story was a murder mystery, this time its a haunting and we are following a different Agent from the Ministry, Hamed and new partner Onsi. Their characters are quite tropey, with one being the slightly experienced grumpy mentor and the other being an overexcited and talkative mentee, but it was a complete delight following them. We also meet other mysterious women who help them in their endeavor to find the supernatural being haunting the Tram car and I was quite enamored by them all and wanted to know more about them. And it made me so so happy to see mention of Fatma as the most famous investigator in the Ministry and now I hope she will be joined by both Hamed and Onsi in the full length novel releasing next year.

In the end, this is one author I’m so happy to have accidentally discovered and now I can’t wait to read any remaining backlist of his and all his future works because I’m thoroughly enjoying his world building as well as characters. If you enjoy beautifully written diverse urban fantasy settings and fun mysteries with supernatural entities, then I highly recommend this novella. Also read the short story that I mentioned above and I promise you will fall in love with this magical steampunk Egypt just like I did. Even the audiobooks are narrated excellently, so you could opt for them if it’s your preferred format. Now I’m just upset that the wait for the novel is too long but I’m left with no choice but to be patient. ( )

this novella adds two more agents to the Egyptian Ministry of Alchemy, Enchantments, and Supernatural Entities in this alternate steampunk Cairo. it's quite elaborate structurally, the plot moves along at a brisk pace, the two main occult detectives here are both interesting, Agent Fatma also makes an appearance, and the writer has a nice line in description detail.

I didn't enjoy this quite as much as I did A Dead Djinn in Cairo. I felt it relied on the exotic locale more than characters and plotting. Still enjoyable and I'll try the author's novel next. ( )
