I really enjoyed it – probably not for everyone, but if you like Terry Pratchett’s stuff, or the Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, or even Harry Potter, then you’ll probably like this.
Peter Grant is a copper who is investigating a murder, when he interviews a witness… who turns out to be a ghost.
This sets up a whole weird logic about how magic works in real life – and a kind of world within our world, inhabited by river spirits, phantom court judges, and the odd family of vampires. Its a lot of fun when you get into it.
He spends too much time talking about the London traffic though.
There’s another 5 books in the series so far, so watch out for more reviews as I get through them.
While we’re on, does anyone have any good book sets to recommend? You know, sagas, trilogies and the like.
