Reviewed in the United States on May 26, 2016
I read this book when it first came out. I still own the original hard-cover edition, but recently re-read it from the Kindle edition. It amazes me how compelling Henry Baltimore is as a character, even though he doesn't actually take up too much space in the book except in the recollections of his friends. Even though I recently read my way through the "Baltimore" comic book series, which both adds to this story and covers some of the climax of this book in comic-book form, I still couldn't put this book down. I look forward to re-reading it again in the future, and love the use this books makes of Hans Christian Andersen's tale of "The Steadfast Tin Soldier." Highly recommended, especially if you like Mike Mignola, Christopher Golden, or books that remind you of Bram Stoker's "Dracula." I also highly recommend that you read the "Baltimore" comics, which deepen the character of Henry Baltimore and also give more insight into his three friends who first appear in the book.
