5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, 23 Mar 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Rivers of London (Hardcover)
One of the few books I have been able to read in one day for many years; mind you having the flu helped. I really got into the characters and I found the use of the old London and new London "gods" very effective. (Having lived near Purley for many years, I can well believe that vampires live in grasmere road).

Looking forward to the next in the series and some back information about the characters.

2.0 out of 5 stars Very disappointing, 22 Mar 2011
This review is from: Kraken (Hardcover)
This book had all the elements of being a really good story - London, magic, mysterious cults. Sadly it did not live up to my expectations. The story did not flow and the characters did not engage me at all. The ending seemed very hurried. Very disappointing. The Rivers of London by Aaronovitch is a much better book.
