A review by pam_sartain
The Lights of Prague by Nicole Jarvis


The Lights of Prague by Nicole Jarvis is a fantasy novel, set in Prague, where there are creatures such as pijavice (vampires), will o' the wisps, and other things that go bump in the night.  Domek is one of the lamplighters, those who protect humanity from these creatures.

His friend, Lady Ora Fischerová, also has things that go bump on the brain, and witnesses a pijovice go into the daylight, surely an act of suicide, but there's rumours of a cure.

This was a good story, set in the 19th Century, with secrets being unearthed.  I would be very happy to read more of these characters.  It made me think of Gail Carriger's Parasole Protectorate series, but without the steampunk!

 The Lights of Prague  was published on 25th May 2021 and is available from  Amazon ,  Waterstones  and  Bookshop.org .
