Manhattan, 1929.

The City is on its knees following a devastating crash in the stock market. Thanks to the Prohibition, criminals are making a killing off illegal bars while thousands of honest labourers can't find a single day's work. And in the Bowery, a homeless war veteran hangs on by a thread.

Solomon Hart has never had much luck in life. With only the clothes on his back and a couple of coins in his pocket, just getting through a single day can be a struggle... and the harsh winter is not making life any easier. But when he finds himself in the wrong place at the wrong time, his life takes a dramatic turn-and not necessarily for the better.

Myth. Legend. Monsters. He'll meet them all in Elderland.

Time to fire up the oven. 
                              And finish HAWK.
                              And buy extra ingredients so we don't run out of cookies this time.
                              P.S. Dryads are pretty cool
I want will 'o the wisps! They have so much potential for dark magic, like dark pods of evil or something!
Does it need to be a mythical creature, if so, id like to see a pheonix in this book, if its a fantasy, how about a neko
I really want to read this but I can’t spend money on stuff on my phone. What can I do?
