Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: London Falling (Shadow Police series Book 1) (Kindle Edition)
What an absolute silly plot this book has. I trudged through it in the hope that it would pick up and I hoped that there would not be a sequel.
But there is a sequel, and it did not pick up. The overall premise had promise; that London has a dark underworld that only those with the gift of "The Sight" can see. I quite liked this idea, and it was what led me to buy this in the first place. What I found silly though was that the antagonist was an ancient witch who killed football players who scored hat-tricks against her beloved West Ham Utd! Errr, right, ok.
The author failed to make the coppers on the hunt for this witch interesting. I often got lost with who was who and cared not for their fates. The only decent characterisation was the criminal psychologist who teams up with the police, I rather liked how she was written, which bumps this review up an extra star.
Overall, I would say that I persevered rather than being hooked the whole way through. It has highs and lows, sadly in my opinion, not enough highs.
I hope you have better experiences with this book.
