Gritty urban fantasy,
By A Customer
This review is from: World's End: Book One of the Age of Misrule (Mass Market Paperback)
The heroes are flawed, their guides cranky, and the gods and other beings of British myth far from safe or fair. From here on things just get worse for the country and the band of five heroes called to defend Britain in its darkest hour. The mythical quest combines well with a look at the disintegration of society as technology fails under the onslaught of magic. The book also reads as something of a travelogue round mystical sites in Britain; this can seem long and may appeal more to non-British readers.
