There is a world hidden underneath this great city.

Nachdem ich dem letzten Fall nicht so viel abgewinnen konnte, war ich hier wider vollends dabei.

Francisca, ihre Geschichte und der draus entstehende Fall sind super faszinierend und haben es geschafft mich zu begeistern. Peters Ausblick in die Zukunft, das heimische und das familiäre und natürlich die Füchse als neuer Teil der Familie, das alles war schön gemacht und ich wünsche ihn viel Glück in der Zukunft.

10 von 10, eine großartige Serie, die mir in den letzen Wochen unglaublich viel Freude beschert hat. ( )

I think it's been a couple of years since I dipped into ROL, and I think this is one of the best ones I've read so far. I couldn't give full stars because of the usual, intentionally sloppy grammatical choices, which distract me as a reader, but overall the narrative flowed, the plot developed at a nice pace, and there was a nice balance of "urban" and "fantasy." Lesley May continues to plague Peter and the rest of the Falcon crew, this time popping up apparently in pursuit of some mystical rings associated with a series of murders that appear to be perpetrated by the Angel of Death. As Peter prepares to become a father to twins, he may also, once more, have to step out of the known world to stop a supernatural being from wreaking havoc in his own. Sometimes I find the intertwining plots in these novels difficult to follow (though obviously I keep reading them), but despite the deep mythology and religiosity (or perhaps because of them), I found this one easier to manage. I feel like the table is set for this series to begin winding down, or at least to evolve, which may not be a bad thing, if Aaronovitch can find a good exit strategy. I do find the river goddesses endlessly fascinating, so I would be happy to go on reading about them. ( )

I enjoyed this one, more than the last couple in the series really. The foxes were terrific! Would read an entire series based on their world. Would also read the hell out of a series featuring Seawoll.

My only issue is that as the series goes on, more and more characters are introduced and there is only so much space in each book, which limits how much story everyone gets. What can you do, eh? ( )

From a weird act of violence in the Silver Vaults, Peter and others investigate a case with magical rings, a Bible group in Manchester in the 1980s and an angel of death who appears to have a link to the Spanish Inquisition. I found this one a proper page-turner that I didn't want to put down. ( )

I'm so glad to have stumbled on this series and this author after receiving this book in the Goodreads Giveaway program. The story and, indeed the series, is set in London and centers around an investigative unit of the Police Department specializing in magic.

Two violent murders have taken place with obvious signs supernatural involvement. Peter Grant, Detective and apprentice wizard, and his cohorts from The Folly (the specially eqipped police facility for the magic division of the department) are tasked with tracking down the murderer. It soon becomes apparent that more killings are going to take place soon unless the perpetrator is discovered and apprehended quickly. We are whisked into a fascinating world of magical spells and inhabitants including River Goddesses, and adorable talking foxes. It's also a world fraught with danger and mystery, and it is fascinating.

When the culprit is finally tracked down, we are about to learn how hard it is to actually apprehend an Angel of Death who has escaped from an ancient lamp tasked with killing those who have one of a set of magical platinum puzzle rings that just happened to end up with a college cult type church group some years back. Two of them are now dead, and those remaining will be lucky to escape with their lives.

Being introduced into the land of magic in London and environs is an amazing experience. Almost like being a child and reading something magical for the first time! And though this book is Number 9 in the Rivers of London series, it was very enjoyable as a stand alone novel.

I highly recommend Amongst Our Weapons, and am looking forward to reading more books in the Rivers of London series. ( )
