3.5 STARS

A third installment in the same dark, intense, urban-fantasy style of grime and grit. If you liked the first 2, you will like this third.

However, reading three iterations of this series, the flaws are becoming more obvious through repetition. There is little to no character growth. Individual lives are rather worthless -- potentially fascinating characters drop like flies through out. Breathless, driving-ahead action without a chance to rest; no rhythm and flow, but one head-long rush. Anti-climactic climax.

However, London continues to be a fascinating, grimy place full of hidden magic made of smoke and concrete and the black myths and nightmares born of millions of people living in one place for centuries. Creative. Action-packed. And some insights into Matthew's typically enigmatic mind courtesy of a figment of his imagination.

A great addition to the series. Highly recommended!
