This novel, the first in the "Enemies Endure" trilogy, brings Jenna Moran's unique sensibility to the heavy philosophical questons of how we make our own enemies and whether it's possible to live with them. Also there are renegage alchemists, svart-elves, and the Doom Team of young adventurers. As usual, the author's whimsical style hides an awful lot of serious content, but the reader who enjoys that sort of thing will find it extremely rewarding.
Also, Echo Chernik's cover is quite gorgeous.
