From official release/information:
Viewed from one angle The Narrows is a fantasy novel. Although it is set in the real world, during WWII, magic does exist although only a few know it. The main character, Jared, works on a secret assembly line that creates golems for the war effort, artificial men created from clay who come alive when a Hebrew word is carved on their forehead. There is a mysterious dwarf who when seen means trouble for the city of Detroit. Imps are in the foundry. And there are rumors of other magic - voodoo men who can turn into birds, frost giants, and even dragons.
