Very interesting, fast paced. The book is set in London, and the main character is a magic user who can travel between 'red' 'grey' and 'white' Londons, set in three similar yet different Londons with varying states of magic and 3 very different cultures, but near identical geography. The story is easy to follow and doesn't leave any boring chapters. The story is immersive and hints at some things that you have to pay a little bit of attention to in order to catch.
Not sure at first but then the story picked up and I really enjoyed.
To begin with, I’m not much for violent fables, egregiously vicious villains and magic spells overcome by even more magic spells and even more violence. At times it occurred to me that the author was imagining a film version. Well told if you are into this kind of story. I only stuck it out because I had to wait for my next credit.
This is one of the few books I enjoy
Loved it! Already into the 2nd book of the series - I'm missing this narrator, but that will go into that review. For this listen - what's not to enjoy?! A cross-dressing pirate wanna-be. Multiple Londons. Cheeky, insolent royals. Sadistic, fiendish royals. Angsty romantic tension. Blood magic. Elemental magic. Black magic. Magicky fighting. Will definitely be delving into this series and this author.
Loved it! Interesting world building and great characters.
I really enjoyed this book. Similar to Neil Gaiman. If you love his work you will love this book. I like it better than GOT. I agree with the reader who said it was slow in the beginning. That is true but when it takes off it really grips the reader.
This book was surprising to me. I absolutely love this. Everything from the world to the characters. I’m definitely reading the whole series.
THIS WAS SO GOOD!!! The worlds are well-built, the characters well-rounded, and the idea of love is focused on loyalty rather than romance itself. Just bought the following book!
