Lushly written and beautifully imagimative. Circuses, old technology from a long lost civilization that verges on magic, and domes of strange blue glass that almost seem sentient.

Den Patrick keeps improving with this sequel to his successful Boy With The Porcelain Blade. Here, we follow events ten years on. Full of courtly intrigue, swordplay, tombs and an ever so stylish sense of fashion.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good fun, good laughs, good murders, 3 Aug. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A fun and fast-paced take on the mismatched detective-team, with a smattering of social networking thrown in, alongside a few submarine sandwiches. And some blood. And guts. And possibly the worst breakfast ever.

5.0 out of 5 stars More Twists than a Helter-Skelter, 28 Sept. 2013

This review is from: POV (Kindle Edition)
A clever, imaginative and fast-paced near-future sf thriller with its fair share of amusement. I thought at times of Philip K Dick. I thought of William Gibson. And I kept thinking, I really want to see this on the big screen!

4.0 out of 5 stars Blood Fugue, 29 Nov. 2012
This review is from: Blood Fugue (Paperback)
There's something happening in British horror-writing these days. And Joseph D'Lacey and Adam Nevill are the ones doing it. In Blood Fugue, D'Lacey has gifted us with vampires the likes of which we've never before encountered. To say that what he has done with them verges on the visionary is to sell them short. They are some of the most disturbing, sickening, and alluring beings I've ever come across. They revolt me at the same time as they fill me with a kind of sick wonder.

Then comes the hunter. James Kerrigan. Who fashions circular throwing weapons called binders out of pine. Weapons that remind us that the cross did not originate with Christians. Yes, this is an old old earth power, and Kerrigan is its current embodiment.

Add to that a detailed depiction of the small community of Hobson's Valley and the dense American wilderness that surrounds it (and D'Lacey writes about wilderness from somewhere deep in his unconscious), and you have a novel whose pages fly past faster than dry leaves in a November blast.

Read it.


Meat
Meat

5.0 out of 5 stars Grim, yet ultimately uplifting, 5 Nov. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Meat (Paperback)
A grim, grim, grim novel indeed. This is uncompromising stuff, with little room to avert your eyes. Using the backdrop of the industrialized slaughterhouse (and giving it the kind of sickening twist only a good horror novel can do), the story really explores what participation in such a soulless and mechanized form of taking life does to the psyche. This, then, leads the reader to consider the nature of human cruelty in general. None of this is to say the novel lacks its transcendent moments. Anyone who reads the passages concerning the spiritual - and in some ways biological - evolution our species undertakes in this novel under the leadership of John Collins (okay, I could have done without the JC reference) will be in no doubt that D'Lacey can achieve more than mere shocks. Through this story runs an awareness of humanity's deep connection to the earth. A promising first novel, and I look forward to reading more.

5.0 out of 5 stars An All-Out Sprint Of A Book, 6 Oct. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A superb read that lets up only long enough for you to take your next breath before plunging you headlong back into dizzying action. Having said that, some of the fight sequences do at times become so kaleidoscopic as to disorient. Nevertheless, this is grown up fantasy at its best. The characters are fully realized and faced with difficult choices that will challenge your loyalties. And don't be fooled by the title. These elves have nothing airy about them; unless, that is, they're leaping into that air to land behind you and lay you waste with a swift kick the head or a blade to the back. Highly recommended.
