Different reader, different setting but still very enjoyable and a good length for a wee crochet project. I‘ve still got two hours to go on the audio - might need some wine to accompany it.

julesG What did you make? Looks like a bag or loop scarf. #crochetersoflitsy #hookersoflitsy 😁 7d
Kaddele It‘s a little bag - it‘s this month‘s project in the Little Box of Crochet. It‘s a cute summery thing - it still needs a couple of tassels but I‘m nearly done. 7d

This novella is number 7.5 in the Rivers of London series but this time it‘s set in Germany. Much like JK Rowling and Fantastic Beasts, Aaronovitch has gone international. 😉 Unlike FB, although we‘ve got new characters, we‘re not really uncovering any more of the history of this world - same kind of story, different setting.
And... I don‘t care. I still loved it and wanted it to be twice as long. 😍😍😍

The best feeling in the world is when a favorite author has a new book out, even if it is “just” a novella. #currentlyreading

Wee bit of audio stitching. Saw an idea on Facebook to put your WiFi password on a QR code. No idea if it'll work but it'll be a talking point 😂📶

Well-ReadNeck Cool idea! Let us know if it works!!! 🙌🏼 2mo
CoverToCoverGirl Ha! Cool! 2mo

I very much enjoyed this new novella in the #RiversofLondon series. There is no Peter Grant though as it is set in Germany with his German counterparts investigating magical troubles near Trier which has plenty of Roman history + several rivers to draw on in creating magical mayhem. I would love more novels with this group & setting!
This does not fit into the series in a specific place—if you know the London set-up, just jump into this anytime!

Centique So good to hear! I love this series and I‘m on hold for this at the library 😍 2mo
elkeo_TheBookDragon @Centique It is just as good as the London books - and just makes my mind wander to where else the books can go - hoping he writes more all through Europe and the world! 🌏 2mo

🤔🤔 I can't decide if I wanna continue with the folks from St. Mary's or jump back into Ben Aaronovitch's work. If it was a Peter Grant story, I'd be half way through it by now but I don't know about this new guy....

elkeo_TheBookDragon I enjoyed the ‘new guy‘ in October Man! 2mo
umbrellagirl Tough choice. I love them both. 2mo

Fun little expansion of the Rivers of London universe. I really enjoyed Tobias and Vanessa. Hopefully Mr. Aaronovitch will see fit to bring the new characters into contact with Nightingale, Grant, and the rest of the gang in future books. Quick, entertaining read.

BooknerdsLife Love this series but I‘m not all caught up yet, this one sounds fun too😄 3mo
Ericalambbrown @BooknerdsLife It was a fun little excursion! 3mo

I miss Peter Grant, but this novella was still a fun diversion into the German equivalent of the Folly! #NetGalley

Had the chance to read an ARC copy of this and I enjoyed it! This was not about Peter Grant, so it was a nice detour to see what their German counterparts were going.

I agree with a previous reviewer that the flow was a little disjointed; I had a small problem connecting the story everyone it jumped, but I enjoyed the story!

I look forward to more on Tobi Winter and Vanessa Sommer; and hopefully a look at the French too!

Ben Aaronovitch posted a link to an excerpt of his new novella coming out in June.

The setting is Germany and I admit that as a German I'm a bit apprehensive.
