This is a Rivers of London novella, but we aren‘t in London, and we have no Peter Grant and no Thomas Nightingale. Kobna Holdbrook-Smith doesn‘t even narrate the audiobook. Instead, we‘re introduced to Tobias Summer who‘s in the German version of a magical police unit. I liked the story and the narrator, but it lacks the humor of the Grant novels. It has humor — just not as much. I would read more books with this mc but will always prefer Grant.

While the first book wasn‘t my favorite, I was curious about the next one and then I finished the 10 book series, so this is a review of the series rather than the first book. At first, I thought the waves of magic and tech were contrived but interesting. I loved the different myths the authors touch upon. The main character Kate is tough, independent, an expert fighter. If you like sword fights, magic, and monsters, a fun series.

This seems like maybe not the greatest purse book to bring to a Christmas concert in a Catholic Church, so...

Not the best in the series. Soooo much internal monologue. Big explosive ending with the protagonist and his brother surely ending up dead (won't spoil) but a huge cop out explanation of how they survived. I know I'm reading a book about demons and gods and werewolves and vampires but I can only suspend my belief so much. Otherwise, ok.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ This story was epic, surprising, swoony, heartbreaking, and brilliantly fantastic! I will admit that there were reveals that took place that seemed to have come from out of nowhere. I am serious, there were no hints at all throughout this series and I was like “whhhaaat!” Hmmm, not very cool. When the ending of this story came it was stunning, shocking, and absolutely perfect. I adored the climatic ending that came as such a surprise.

I truly can‘t tell if I like this series or not. The least interesting parts are about their romantic relationships and it feels like the author is leaning more heavily on those. However, I will continue reading it because I want to see how this series ends!
