Editorial Reviews

Review

"In Vivian Shaw's Strange Practice, a charmingly unusual doctor and her charges keep the city of London from grave danger. In the process, they peel back the covers of familiar (and according to them, somewhat "libelous") stories to find that reality - especially with the undead - is more poignant and complex than it seems at first glance. An excellent adventure."― Fran Wilde, award-winning author of Updraft, Cloudbound, and Horizon

"Strange Practice is written with elegance, wit, and compassion. The prose is gorgeous, the wit is mordant, and the ideas are provocative. Also, there are ghouls."― Laura Amy Schlitz, Newbery Medal winner

"A satisfying and surprising read, with rich imagery, nuance, and real compassion for its characters--give Strange Practice a shot!"―Elliott James, author of Charming

"A darkly delicious adventure featuring a quirky new heroine. Strange Practice breathes new life into the undead."―James Bennett, author of Chasing Embers

"An exceptional and delightful debut, in the tradition of Good Omens and A Night in the Lonesome October."―Elizabeth Bear, Hugo-award winning author

"An appropriately dark breath of fresh air."―Booklist

"Readers will look forward to more of Greta's adventures. An imaginative, delightfully droll debut."―Kirkus

"What a splendid adventure this is - Dr. Greta Helming is a brilliant character, world-weary doctor on-call at all hours, sorting out the ills of the undead and trying to run her Harley Street practice without drawing too much (or any) attention to her patients from the living world ... a splendid new urban fantasy series."―Espressococo

"Strange Practice surprises and delights. It's completely different from anything I've read before. It ticks so many boxes: action, mystery, suspense, an exciting and different world adjacent to our own to name but a few. But the greatest elements of the book are the characters. They shine."―The Bookbag
