The story is good. It has element of Barbara Vine, concentrating on the bohemian life of young people on the edge of society in London.
But.... we are supposed to love and root for one of the major female characters. And I didn't. She was just annoying, flirtatious, and shallow. Needed a full re-write to fix that person.
