What is Carnival Row?
Carnival Row is a series set in a Victorian fantasy world filled with mythological immigrant creatures whose exotic homelands were invaded by the empires of man.
This growing population struggles to coexist with humans - forbidden to live, love, or fly with freedom. But even in darkness, hope lives, as a human detective, Rycroft Philostrate, and a refugee faerie named Vignette Stonemoss rekindle a dangerous affair despite an increasingly intolerant society.
Vignette harbors a secret that endangers Philo’s world during his most important case yet: a string of gruesome murders threatening the uneasy peace of the Row.

Andrew Gower (Outlander) is Ezra Spurnrose, a neurotic son of a prosperous watchmaker, who's lately gambled his deceased father's fortune on the considerably more risky enterprise of ferrying migrant workers from the fae homelands.
Arty Froushan (Knightfall) is Jonah Breakspear, a compulsive playboy whose carousing in the brothels of Carnival Row threatens to destroy his father's political legacy.
