London Falling is a fast paced gritty dark fantasy that should appeal to fans of both police procedurals and urban fantasy.
I do not object to being dumped "in media res" and made to figure things out; here, though, there were too many characters and POV to make sense of initially.
It has a lot of good action sequences, enough characterization to keep the reader hooked in, and a lot of very, very clever plot twists.
Fascinating book - after a slow start, the characters and premise grabbed me. There's a learning curve if you are not familiar with the patois, but it's worth it. Read morePublished 5 days ago by Jennifer L. Bouchard
