Patrick Jane is only human.

The author created an ingenious fantasy steampunk world, where strange powers and magical creatures are commonplace, and yet still kept the essence of The Mentalist, with the team as investigators of tough cases, and Jane their civilian consultant. Everyone on the team has a secret, and each is cleverly revealed, all while they work several cases that may be connected.

This story is just clever, with each twist on the characters, tweaking them away from canon in a way that makes them more essentially themselves. The characterizations and dynamics between the characters are spot on, and the mystery plot is engaging with a perfect twist at the end.
