3.0 out of 5 stars Interesting but didn't quite get there, 13 July 2012
I very much enjoyed the story of the central character, a young policeman being thrown into an underground world of ghosts and magic, whilst investigating a series of gruesome murders, perpetrated by an other-worldy entity. The characterisation was excellent and believable, with great dialogue, some interesting twists and turns and a good pace to the narrative. Two things let it down for me. Firstly the ending - a bizarre denouement that seemed overly contrived and, secondly, the device of having a group (or family) of demi-gods who each represent a river in London. What was the point of this? It appeared superfluous to the story. I wasn't sure if this was written for older or younger adults - it will appeal to both certainly, although you will need to know London well to appreciate the references to the city.

4.0 out of 5 stars Engaging and fun: 4 stars, 13 July 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book is great fun. I enjoyed the central character, who relates his story in an engaging and entertaining way. There is plenty of action and excitement, the characterisation is good and there are plenty of laughs along the way. Without giving too much away, the device used as the source of powerful magic is innovative and works well. A fun read for young adults who fancy some light entertainment.

4.0 out of 5 stars Bizarre, moving, hilarious!, 15 Feb. 2012
Bizarre, moving, hilarious and engaging - I adored the mechanics and perplexing relationships of this novel, which holds a beautifully awkward mirror to the world under scrutiny. A witty and unusual book.


Uncle Montague's Tales of Terror
Uncle Montague's Tales of Terror
by Chris Priestley
Edition: Hardcover

4.0 out of 5 stars Gorgeously scary, 14 Feb. 2012
This is a gorgeously scary book for gothic fans of all ages. The rather old-fashioned formula did initially rather make me wonder about its appeal but, I'm delighted that I stayed with it. The developing relationship between Edgar and his uncle is mapped out beautifully and the balance of fun and terror is struck with real precision - a grand collection of spooky tales that I would hugely recommend.
