This book was a fun read, but I didn't like it as much as I liked the first 4 books. It takes place outside of London in a small country town where two girls have been kidnapped and there is a possibility of magic being involved. It has unicorns and My Little Pony references. We also get to meet new creatures and beings. I like Peter's relationship with Beverly who is such a fascinating character. I also find it amusing when he has to spin things so people won't know there is magic involved.

Another great book in a consistently good series. Start with "Midnight Riot" to get the full effect.

The author continues with his narrators strong voice, drawing you deeper into this magical world where anything is possible. However, this volume drifts slightly further from what seems to be the overarching plot of the series, as well as from the heart of London, and for me loses something by it. I continue to look forwards to future installments however, as this series is much to good to put down after one book that only marginally failed to meet the previously high set of expectations.

The most recent story in the Rivers of London series. I can't get enough of this cleverly written and amusing slightly paranomal mystery series set in London.

Ben Aaronovitch does it again. Great fun!
