An anthology series of stories featuring Police Constable Peter Grant, his partner, Sahra Guleed, and their associates, as they tackle supernatural crime on the streets of London! An all-new adventure for Ben Aaronvitch's laconic, way-past-cool but slightly geeky trainee wizard and budding detective, Peter Grant! Tying directly into the Rivers of London continuity. Aaronovitch is joined by Doctor Who writer Andrew Cartmel for this gripping new series.

I hate to say this but it must be said:
This volume is utter crap.

PC Peter Grant is being interviewed in the last part of the process to becoming a DCI. Four of his cases are being reviewed, one of which makes no sense at all. The single sheet comics are lame.

Aaronovitch needs to stop producing pablum like comics, novellas, and short stories and give us a real novel to sink our teeth into.

Can‘t wait for November!

The cheek of putting the detective's exam, something long awaited in the books, into a GN, is impressive. If you're looking for a new jumping on point for Rivers of London, this works pretty well as PC Peter Grant outlines four cases to prove he deserves to become DC Grant.

Also, can we just shout out to Aaronovitch for creating a brilliant, diverse cast of regulars?

Snowy Tuesday reads (I have already finished a romance novel this morning 🙌). I love comics that continue a series while novels are being written. And have the same author, thus the same tone!

Last few #bookmail arrivals here. Two comic preorders (I have already read the Lumberjane), one awesome-sounding family history nonfiction on the amazon book coupon day, and both Crazy a Rich Asians, which I just read and loved, and the next book in the series, because I have problems with self control when buying books. 🤷‍♀️ #bookhaul

When one of your favourite series quotes one of your all time favourites. A #Pratchett reference in Rivers of London. Crivens! #bemoreTerry
