'packed with recherche trivia and literary psychogeography....fans of Neil Gaiman and Jonathan Carroll will be right at home here: if the rest of the series lives up to this cliffhanging first volume it will be very good indeed' --The Telegraph
'just as truth and fiction, fascinatingly collide with intriguing postmodern results...Mike Carey climaxes his first page-turning volume with a discursive chapter on an imagined political conspiracy surrounding Rudyard Kipling' --The Metro
"A wish-I'd-thought-of-it premise, beautifully executed. Highly recommended for anyone who thinks that fantasy can do more than just help you escape the real world" --Brian K. Vaughan (Y: The Last Man, TV's LOST)
