Mark's debut novel was exciting and a real page turner. Set in London, it follows the 1st person point of view of several people whose stories all converge around one crime. Great characterisations, cleverly executed, wonderfully descriptive, and with a touch of the mystical. Something for everyone: thriller, crime, supernatural and psychological.

This book starts with at an incredible pace and in short will leave you feeling as if you've just watched Layer Cake's characters thrown into a mix of Inception and the Matrix whilst listening to Dark Side of the Moon. Descriptions so clear I could sense and smell the grit of bustling London streets. This book constantly probed my imagination and is an excellent debut effort from Mark A King.

This unique book has layers, the kind of layers that will provide a deep and impactful reading experience. If you enjoy atmospheric urban fiction, the New Weird, or tales told from many points of view, this is one to add to your collection.

The story opens with the sort of senseless and random act of violence most of us fear. From there, the event spirals out into various levels of London’s society—but especially its underbelly.

Via many the points of view from many characters, the story of the city unfolds—its past, its present, and its future.

This is a story of modern corruption and greed, but it is also a story of an ancient battle between light and dark.

The debut novel from talented flash-fictioneer Mark A King packs an urban fantasy punch that leaves you wanting more (thankfully, this is a BOOK 1 so signs are looking good). A host of likeable and unlikeable characters prowl the streets of London, mingling with the criminal underworld, the spiritual world, and the downright gritty-side-of-life-bits of world.

There’s many types of London, and Kings’ London is gritty, with a dark and a light side – full of ghosts who aren’t seen because they’re ghosts, and people who aren’t seen because they’re the sort of people crowds ignore.

And even though King covers some pretty heavy topics, there’s humour in the darkness, witty edges to characters that make the book deeper and the characters more real.

Half urban fantasy, half London-noir, with strains of Neil Gaiman thrown in for good measure, Metropolitan Dreams is a page turner that you’ll wish didn’t run out of pages.

This book deserves to be made into a film, or be the next grit-fantasy (that’s a genre, promise) TV box set we’re all talking about. And when we’re finished talking about that, hopefully the next one will be out, because we certainly need to hear more from King.

Favourite line: “you’re thicker than an Eighties mobile phone.”

Read with: An underground map, and a soundtrack of tube trains.

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding debut novel 5 Mar. 2017
By A. Holland - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Every city has its underworld, its crime-fighters, its do-gooders, its innocents. London is no exception and Mark King has gone underground in more ways than one to discover a dark belly of urban crime, exposing everything from petty stealing offences to murder, cyber-crime, crooked cops and those who unwittingly find themselves bound into the system. Street children, homeless hostels, immigrants, petty thieves turned murderers. It's all here in Metropolitan Dreams, along with fantasy, other worldliness, tube drivers, jumpers, ghosts and dreams.
This is an amazing story of courage against all adversity. An array of colourful and evil characters flow between the pages of Metropolitan Dreams until you're not quite sure who you're rooting for anymore. One thing for sure, Mark King's London never sleeps, never gives up and never stops twisting and turning, giving us some degree of reluctant understanding of what goes on in every city in the world, every day. Scary, clever, emotional and real. When an author can make fantasy feel real - be afraid. Brilliant!
