Synopsis

Rivers of London by Ben Aaronovitch

Reviews

Witty, well plotted, vividly written and addictively readable. -- Lisa Tuttle THE TIMES An engaging mix of magic and police procedural, this is a great kick off to a very promising series as well as the most satisfying fantasy thriller to hit bookshelves in quite some time. Witty, imaginative and gripping. -- Saxon Bullock SFX Rivers of London is highly recommended for anyone looking for some urban fantasy fun with a real life spin, the sights and smells of London just ooze out from between the pages. This book should be essential reading for anyone who has ever seen anything inexplicable or strange on the streets of London - which would be just about everybody who's ever been there, really. LOVEVAMPIRES.COM Anyone who has enjoyed Neil Gaiman's Neverwhere, Kate Griffin's Matthew Swift novels, Mike Carey's Felix Castor series - anyone in those shoes will adore Rivers of London. Assured, witty and great fun to read. -- Amanda Rutter FLOOR TO CEILING BOOKS Rivers of London comfortably fills out its engaging premise. -- Sophia McDougall Ben Aaronovitch has put together an enjoyable and exciting story that is easy to read.

BOOK MONKEYS This is a terrific urban fantasy police procedural in which the two cops make the unbelievable believable; especially the inexperienced Grant. The fast-paced yet meandering story line is loaded with action from the onset as the mentor and mentee work a challenging investigation in which an ancient has arisen to stir the troubled waters. Sub-genre fans will enjoy Ben Aaronovitch's view of London in this witty well written riot. ALTERNATIVE-WORLDS Aaronovitch gives us a glimpse of a fascinating and fantastical underbelly to the capital that feels entirely believable. Those familiar with the city will enjoy picturing the chaotic events unfold, while those less familiar will receive an accurate and entertaining geography lesson. Magical, mysterious and mesmerising, Rivers of London will have you spellbound. -- Alice Wybrew TOTAL SCI FI This is a fun book, with enough wry humour without descending into slapstick. Recommended. British Fantasy Society
