I am currently reading (and enjoying) Ben Aaronovitch’s novel Rivers of London. I’ll admit I’m a sucker for urban fantasies, where the monsters walk among us!
Rivers of London is good stuff, with lots of supernatural fun and, of course, London. What a super setting. The tone is not quite as zany as Christopher Moore’s Dirty Job (set in San Francisco), but it is amusing in its own right. I love these books that explore famous cities well enough that the city essentially becomes a character in the story. They are eerily like my upcoming novel (summer ’22), which is an urban fantasy that explores the mysterious dark-n-rainy city of Seattle–the U.S. title is MONSTER LAWYER (because, yeah, I’m also a lawyer), and the German title is to be determined. Stay tuned, because I intend to take you on a monster-guided tour through the dark places in Seattle.
But back to Rivers of London. Great book. Check it out if you like urban fantasy.
