Wonderful London based Urban Fantasy
on 14 October 2017
I found this incredibly hard to get into. It's the type of book that really needs someone to sit down, plunge in and devour. Normally a book like this would tick all the boxes for me and that's exactly what I'd do. Having been convalescing while reading this I kept falling asleep however. it wasn't the fault of the book at all, but it did mean it took me much longer to get into the way it was written. It's not an easy read until you start to piece everything together. Once I'd done that I really started to enjoy it, and I know I will definitely read the other three books in the series, although I will wait until I have a longer attention span. If you love urban fantasy, and particularly books about London, like Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman and Rivers of London by Ben Aaronovitch, this will definitely be up your street. It's original, complex and ultimately very satisfying to read.
