  The mayor of the gods, of Manhatta a world that is invisible to most mortals, is Alexander Hamilton. (All of the gods started out as mortals, but their fame, their success, their ingenuity made them be reborn as immortal gods in this spirit world residing side by side with modern Manhattan.)

Mebus hasn't just crafted a smart and exciting story here. It's his inspired use of Manhattan's vast urban labyrinth as a setting — indeed, as a character in its own right — that sells it all so winningly.   Books: Gods of Manhattan series fanfiction archive with over 8 stories.
