My rating: 4 out of 5
Keep breathing, I said. It’s a habit you don’t want to break.
This has been one fun book. Witty, quite funny and full of magic. There were a few dry spells (Ha! Get it?) here and there, but I still consider this a successful combination of Neil Gaiman’s Neverwhere and more traditional CSI/detective books. There’s London, there’s magic, there is science and fake history. And there’s a murderous something on the loose. Have I mentioned personifications of London rivers? I have a feeling that knowing London layout and history better would make this an even more enjoyable read, but it also didn’t take away much.
I’ll definitely continue the series, the premise is interesting enough and there are a lot of characters I want to meet again. Until next time!
