Anarchy by James Treadwell
  

Sarah Broadhurst's view...

This is the second in a magical trilogy that started with Advent and you should certainly read that one first. Set in our world but a world in which much of the myth and magic we believe to be legend has somehow been unleashed on our unsuspecting lives. Not only does this lead to some pretty dangerous adventure for our hero it also means that everything we take for granted like electricity and transport crumbles apart as society does and it makes for a very interestingly dystopian fantasy series.

If you like James Treadwell you might also like to read books by Ben Aaronovitch, Philip Pullman and Sally Green.

Synopsis

Anarchy by James Treadwell

Reviews

James's style draws you in ... it's alive with vile creatures, sweeping mysteries and the best-written female characters in young adult fiction. A unique voice - ImagineFX

The second novel in an astonishingly imaginative fantasy trilogy ... If you're looking for a story that's been written well, is complex and has interesting characters, you have just found what you've been looking for. ANARCHY is all of these things and more - it's a genuine masterpiece of literary fantasy. - Rising Shadow
