I loved this book. I loved how the author brought back a lot of the characters from the first book. I do advise you read the first book first if possible as it will give you the background you need for everything to come together. In this story there was: drama, humor, romance, betrayal. conflict, tension, and a lot more. This book has a great plot and is fast paced. The was a second plot that was depressing and I felt that really wasn’t needed not as sad as it was anyway. There was a lot of twists and turns in this story. This was basically a fun read. I was laughing out loud at times. Even with the subplot I really liked this book. I loved the characters and the twists and turns and I recommend.
I was looking forward to this so much I pre-ordered it three months in advance (something I'm not wont to do). When it finally arrived I was looking for a particular good moment to sit down with it and read it in one go.
The comics of Rivers of London are a nice addition to the main series, although it doesn't seem they are essential to the overall plot of the series. Nevertheless I've been enjoying them a lot and would certainly recommend them to fans of the series. Black Mould, as the name suggests deals with an infestation of sentient mould and was another good read. The only complaint I had was that the solution felt a bit rushed, but this was not a major problem.
For years I've been following Peter Grant around as he manages his business with the Rivers of London and all other magical creatures in London. The comic series, for me, was the latest instalment and after some initial hesitation, I'm really glad I joined in on them.
While they are (so far as I can tell) not a major part of the continuing story of the books it is a great addition to them. This was involves a lot of Russians, and I admit there was some initial anxiety when the first page was in Russian, I couldn't understand a word of it and I believed I had accidentally ordered the wrong edition (my sister once ordered a German comic by mistake). Luckily, the rest was (mostly) in English!
I'm really looking forward to the rest of this series.
I fell for The Circle because of the nice cover. The art inside is slightly different, but still the strongest point of the graphic novel.
Christian has just moved to a rather boring small town and has some troubles adjusting and finding new friends. That is, until he’s tricked by a couple of teenagers with sinister plans to be a part of their circle. Things go wrong quickly from there.
It was a very quick read, but the story was not that interesting. It has all been done before and especially Christian is so very naïve. Also, it was as if a lot of the story was missing still because a lot happens in such a small number of pages that the events (and the ‘why’s behind it) stayed un(der)developed.
Thanks to the publisher and Netgalley for providing me with a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review!
