    The main thing about this book is that it definitely feels like a bridge between Whispers Undergound and Book 5. There's really no point reading this unless you have read all the others - and I urge you to do that straight away because they are great!

    As a story it mainly feels like its getting you from one place to another along the story arc but with enough interesting stuff along the way to keep you interested. There is a HUGE plot development which shocked me but that makes total sense in retrospect. As usual there is lots of information about London geography and history thrown in which, for me, is one of the joys of the books.

    One of my favourite things was finally seeing (hearing) Nightingale show what he can do in a full-on magical battle.

    Kobna Holdbrook-Smith is excellent as ever, really inhabiting the character of Peter. Sometimes I think Ben Aaronovitch gives characters a particular accent just to see how Kobna handles them!

    Ben Aaronovitch has stormed the best-seller list with his superb London crime series. A unique blend of police procedural; loving detail about the greatest character of all, London; and a dash of the supernatural. A mutilated body in Crawley. Another killer on the loose. The prime suspect is one Robert Weil: An associate of the twisted magician known as the Faceless Man? Or just a common or garden serial killer? Before PC Peter Grant can get his head round the case a town planner going under a tube train and a stolen grimoire are adding to his caseload. So far so London. But then Peter gets word of something very odd happening in Elephant and Castle....

    I LOVED this book. I don't care if it is a massive rip-off of Firefly. Great, compelling story and fantastic characters. I am slightly obsessed with Frey now.

    Hey Audible - I WANT THE REST OF THE SERIES!

    A good reader makes makes or marrs a book and I've found that I would rather listen to a bad book with a great narrator than a good book with a poor one. Rupert Degas is one of my favourites. He has a lovely smooth voice is great at characterisation. You should check out his readings of Patrick Rothfuss.

    Frey is the captain of the Ketty Jay, leader of a small and highly dysfunctional band of layabouts. An inveterate womaniser and rogue, he and his gang make a living on the wrong side of the law, avoiding the heavily armed flying frigates of the Coalition Navy. With their trio of ragged fighter craft, they run contraband, rob airships, and generally make a nuisance of themselves. So a hot tip on a cargo freighter loaded with valuables seems like a great prospect for an easy heist and a fast buck. Until the heist goes wrong, and the freighter explodes.

    Story

    Well, this is splendid. I am quite picky about fantasy and can't bear the usual cliches. Patrick Rothfuss has created a full realised universe and for once the characterisation is as important as the epic sweep of the story.

    Rupert Degas is a fabulous narrator with lovely rich voice. He always manages to portray the right amount of emotion and clearly distinguishes between people. A good narrator makes or breaks a book and can make a good book unputdownable (unstoplistenable? - need a new word for audio books)

    According to mythology mankind used to live in The Tranquiline Halls. Heaven. But then the Voidbringers assaulted and captured heaven, casting out God and men. Men took root on Roshar, the world of storms, but the Voidbringers followed. The Almighty gave men powerful suits of armor and mystical weapons, the Shardblades. Led by ten angelic Heralds and ten orders of knights known as Radiants, mankind finally won (or so the legends say).

    Book two of the Stormlight Archive. From the best-selling author who completed Robert Jordan's epic Wheel of Time series comes a new, original creation that matches anything else in modern fantasy for epic scope, thrilling imagination, superb characters, and sheer addictiveness. Return to a planet swept by apocalyptic storms, a world tipping into war as aristocratic families move to control the shard blades and shard plates, ancient artifacts from a past civilisation that can win wars.

    My name is Peter Grant and until January I was just probationary constable in that mighty army for justice known to all right-thinking people as the Metropolitan Police Service (as the Filth to everybody else). My only concerns in life were how to avoid a transfer to the Case Progression Unit - we do paperwork so real coppers don't have to - and finding a way to climb into the panties of the outrageously perky WPC Leslie May.

    Hunter Gamble is an idealistic young attorney in a very special area of the practice: arcane defense. Funded by enigmatic billionaire Charles McClain and aided by shy-but-energetic research attorney Kirsten Harper, he's making the world a better place - one vampire, zombie, or werewolf client at a time. After all, they deserve their day in court too, right? When a young zombie walks into Hunter's office accused of murder (by brain-eating), Hunter's idealism is tested as never before as he struggles to secure the man's freedom.
