Reading the back of this book I was tempted to put it down immediately and move on. Who on earth integrates 'The Fey' into a modern London setting without falling into numerous traps and ending up with a book that wasn't anywhere near what was intended. Well clearly Mike Shevdon can. For those who aren't exacty new to reading this genre, like me, you will hopefully find this as original and engaging as I have. Shevdons writing style is a little prosaic but the originality and pacing of the storyline soon draws you in to the point of ignoring anything else. Some people wont like this book, others will complain about a possible lack of depth and in-filling towards character histories and background information but if you are happy to just pick the story up and run with it then you wont be disappointed. An accomplished start for an author to keep an eye on.
