This is the fifth book in Robert Holdstock’s Night Hunter series, and sees hero Dan Brady fight spectral black hounds and a Celtic goddess as he searches North London for his kidnapped wife. Previous books in the series have all taken place in rural locations, so the switch to an urban setting this time around makes for an enjoyable change of scene. Familiar locations such as the British Telecom Tower help to make the horror seem more real and threatening, and I found this to be one of the creepiest books in the series so far, although on the negative side the urban setting does draw attention to the fact that this book was written, and is set, thirty years ago. Consequently, it does feel a little dated at times.

I was also a little disappointed with the ending. One of the comments I made about book four in the series, ‘The Shrine’, was that Brady’s powers had advanced to the extent that it felt as if he could go toe-to-toe with Arachne’s minions, but this time around he seems weaker, having voluntarily stopped using his magic talisman, and his foes are much stronger. Consequently, Holdstock has Brady rely less on his skill and determination to beat his foes, and more on good fortune and lucky happenstance, and the conclusion feels too easy to be truly satisfying. Don’t get me wrong, this is still a good book; it’s just not a great one.

This penultimate chapter in the Night Hunter series keeps up the pace, suspense and plot line of its predecessors.

As I've said in my reviews of the other books in this saga, if you enjoy a mixture of mythology, supernatural and the occult, then this shouldn't disappoint.
