Rivers of London

The Second PC Grant Mystery

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 (and 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. Then one night, in pursuance of a murder inquiry, I tried to take a witness statement from someone who was dead but disturbingly voluable, and that brought me to the attention of Inspector Nightingale, the last wizard in England.

Now I'm a Detective Constable and a trainee wizard, the first apprentice in fifty years, and my world has become somewhat more complicated: nests of vampires in Purley, negotiating a truce between the warring god and goddess of the Thames, and digging up graves in Covent Garden ... and there's something festering at the heart of the city I love, a malicious vengeful spirit that takes ordinary Londoners and twists them into grotesque mannequins to act out its drama of violence and despair.

The spirit of riot and rebellion has awakened in the city, and it's falling to me to bring order out of chaos - or die trying.

Peter Grant is probationary constable at the Metropolitan Police Service when he gets sucked into a world he's never even dared to dream of. Magic, vampires and ghosts are a part of his everyday life now as he begins his life as a trainee wizard - and it doesn't just stop there! In Peter Grant, grown up Harry Potter fans find a worthy successor. Exciting, funny (but not cheesy) and very british!

Once again we hit a world, where magic is real, but hidden, where ghosts exist, where an outsider stumbles into a world full of magic creatures. So far, so used. BUT! Haha! But Ben Aaronovitch accomplishes, where so many of the other urban fantasy authors fail, namely to mix british humor, and a good british crime novel (the main focus seems to be always on good, old police work) with nicely written, realistic characters. None of the pathetic "hear, hear" and "alas" BS you get on other urban fantasy novels, which is refreshing and good. I´ll definitely keep an eye out for sequels. Oh, wait, there is already a sequel and I´m already reading it. Aaah. Good stuff!
