The only clangers, however, were the lack of editing. The authors are American, and thus there is a strong LACK of 'Englishness' (think Sherlock Holmes etc). Characters say 'Brilliant' and step onto the 'sidewalk'. The ghosts of famous people really don't seem to act as they likely would (artistic license, I know, but still!). It just threw my suspension of disbelief out of the window, and made me think the series had been rushed to deadline without checking. If you can get past this, tho, it's an enjoyable read.
But if you liked this series, try:
as this is even more of it!
Overall it is very well written. yes, some people have mentioned Americanisms but you know what? I was so caught up in the drama and intrigue of the story i barely noticed. What I did notice was a good plot, well paced, with likeable characters I cared about.
Small note to those who are thinking of buying this novel after seeing the webcasts, this is not a novel for kids or even younger teenagers. The violence and sex scenes are very graphic and as such i would definitely state this as an adult only novel.
