This one wasn't going to get reviewed. As soon as I'd finished it I started in on the next one. And by the time I'd got to the end of that I couldn't even remember the plot. Well, a week later I still couldn't, so I looked. And that's when it hit me: although there is plot that isn't why I read th...

One of the things I really worry to much about when it comes to books is their height. I want my series to fit together and have on occasions taken a ruler into the bookstore to make sure I bought the right one. It completely beats me why there are so many different heights available or why this som...

This one is more a story about the magical world of London and England and allows for later expansion of the world, it turns out that there are a few schools of magic in the world. The adventure all starts with Lady Tyburn asking Peter for a favour and to keep the favour quiet, however Peter knows b...

Well after the lackluster 5th book, "The Hanging Tree" was an improvement. The only thing that I honestly think that doesn't work is Peter and Beverly's relationship. It doesn't seem to be much of one honestly. They were barely even talking in this one besides having sex with each other. The ending ...

I enjoyed spending time back in the skewed world of PC Grant and his "Falcon" cases. But at the same time, I was slightly disappointed by Installment #6 in The Rivers of London Series. Not sure how much of that disappointment is from The Hanging Tree being a weaker, mature series book, where it ...

Series: Peter Grant #6 I had to wait a long time for this one, and I’m glad to say I wasn’t disappointed. It’s another solid Peter Grant mystery and I heard Peter’s voice when reading it. This one starts off with an overdose at a teen party where the partygoers really shouldn’t have had access to ...

I enjoy Peter Grant's company. I'd read the books even if there was no other plot that following Peter around and seeing his disdainful reaction to the rich and tasteless, his fierce opposition to the abuse of power, his passion for architecture, his dismissal of history written only from the victor...

I lost track of how many times a certain retailer let me know that my pre-order for this had been rescheduled, but now a little more than 2 years after The Rivers of London most recently flowed through these books, The Hanging Tree is out (in parts of the world, anyway). I'm firmly in the camp of th...
