review 1: This was a richer story than I expected from the series. The complications of being the Midnight Mayor and Matthew Swift stand out in sharper focus between a twisting story of drugs, summoned monsters and of course, horrible, blood. I put it down ready for the next book, which is...

review 1: Continuing the tales of Magicals Anonymous. Did you wonder where those mysterious thrown shoes came from? And the dead are about to rise in the streets of London? AND the Midnight Mayor has disappeared, leaving Sharon as astonished LOCUM TENENS. Can she save the City with the aid...

review 1: A new favorite. Being a thoroughly a city person myself I found the concept of a city's magic wonderfully fresh and original. Other than the Dresden Files books by Jim Butcher (which I love!) I haven't read much urban fantasy. But if I compare, Griffin's magical world seems to be...

review 1: A gritty urban fantasy which starts with a similar theme to the first book in the series. Matthew Swift comes around with the usual realisation of 'not dead yet'. London has come under threat from mystical forces. The midnight mayor is dead and it is down to swift and the blu...

review 1: Perhaps one day I will give a more involved review of these that does not boil down to "ALSO GREAT." I love Penny and Matthew and the angels, and I haven't read any other author who describes cities as living, breathing entities better than Kate Griffin; I wasn't entirely in love...

review 1: Awesome book! As I have so enjoyed Kate griffins previous books I was quiet pleased to find that Swift still has a part to play in this new series of books. The dialog was a little hard to get through at first, however, once I got into the flow, I really enjoyed it. Sharon is a...

review 1: Fabulous ideas let down by uneven prose, pacing, and characterisation. Griffin has devised a scheme of magic that is both rooted in mythological and contemporary ideas, and yet still fresh and evocative.Even better, her idea of magic is set in a description of London that is simp...

review 1: The second Matthew Swift book was a bit slow to get going, probably because I read it right after the latest Dresden Files book (Skin Game). Many similarities, but very different style. The both series are urban fantasies, written in 1st person narrative, and the main character i...
