Reviews

Praise for the Matthew Swift series: London's magic has seldom if ever been brought to life so electrifyingly and convincingly. --- Mike Carey I'm fully convinced that Kate Griffin is a literary sorceress. She weaves the most intricate spells with clever, artful, snarky, luxurious prose, characters who are both painfully human and gloriously badass, and settings so magical you forget they're real places. When I get my hands on a new Kate Griffin book I put down everything else. She's just that good. --- N.K. Jemisin Griffin's novel mixes fantasy and reality into a plot that brings to mind Neil Gaiman's Neverwhere . --- RT Book Reviews Griffin's lush prose and chatty dialogue...create a wonderful ambiance. --- Publishers Weekly I love a lot of things about this book....the narration has meat and vitality, and it sings. Griffin's updating of magic is simply brilliant. --- Charles de Lint You need to read this series. Hands down. --- BSCReview.com Quite possibly the best urban fantasy novel I had ever read. --- Robwillreview.com The people are complex and compelling. It's these characters, and the interplay between them, that help the novel shine - SFX Griffin has nailed it... fun - SciFi Now
