What a delight this book is! London Shadows is a rare gem of a book. Set in Victorian England, but one in which ghosts, demons, occultists and paranormal shenanigans are all part and parcel of the foggy underground of the London streets and the glittering chandelier-lit ballrooms of the aristocracy. The author has clearly done her research, too, and she incorporates that research into the weave of this tale so expertly that it never intrudes on the story but helps build the credibility of this intriguing version of the great capital. But there’s a lot more to this book than expert world-building. It’s the characters that spring to life between its pages that really make this such a charming, entertaining and ultimately satisfying book.

The troubled demon-hunter and journalist, Freddie Westman, and his companion in adventure, the bright and scientifically-minded Sophie Penderry, are the key protagonists in a story which is a ripping adventure mystery steeped in paranormal ghostliness which will have you engaged, entertained and rooting for the protagonists from the first page. The author has created something very special in her key characters and the relationship between them. Broom the manservant is a classic character. The villains are villainous, but credible and flawed. All her characters are exquisitely drawn and brought to life. You will come to love them. You’ll miss them when you finish the book and be longing for the sequel so you can be reunited!

And Weaver’s prose is perfectly crafted, her descriptions just right, her dialogue accurate, witty and paced. She manages to write in a style which evokes the spirits of Jane Austen, Charlotte Bronte, or Conan-Doyle, and yet remains eminently accessible to a contemporary reader.

Such a fun read; I found myself wolfing this down in a few hours because I couldn't stop reading. Weaver has a cast of delightful characters (surely they'll be back?!) and a great knack for pace. It has the best bits of Conan Doyle's detective fiction, a romantic vein not out of place in Austen, and masses of derring-do. Brilliant :)

Oh my goodness! I have never read such an amazing book! London Shadows is a must have book, and I highly recommend buying it! The storyline really made me want to read on, and I hardly put the book down. It is rare now days to find such an amazing book, but J. L. Weaver's London Shadows if definitely worth reading!
