Product description


A welcome return for Felix Castor... You'll literally find hours disappearing when turning the pages of The Naming of the Beasts, and afterwards you'll be clamouring for more.

Mike Carey's Felix Castor novels are simply one of the best urban fantasy series on the market today . . . ' FantasyBookCritic.blogspot.com: reviews of all five books (‘The Naming of the Beasts is Mike Carey’s best outing yet for Felix Castor. Book six cannot come soon enough as far as I’m concerned!’ Graeme’sFantasyBookReview.com)

There are some authors that guarantee a good read. Mike Carey is one of them. His Felix Castor novels are edgy and realistic, portraying London and its surroundings in a way that makes you hurry past dark alleyways even faster than usual, your back hol
