I was immediately disappointed when I downloaded this audiobook and found it wasn‘t narrated by Kobna Holdbrook-Smith. Once I got over the new setting and the lack of Peter Grant, though, it wasn‘t bad. It‘s fun to see the magic system of Rivers of London extended to Germany, and I realized I know very little about the modern German police force. Enjoyable enough, but I hope we‘ll still see more Peter Grant stories soon.

Beautifully written and heart wrenching. The story had a smooth cadence that carried throughout, but more than that, I fell in love with the characters. I‘d include a picture, but I already lent it out! Be careful when you read this, tears are inevitable!

I‘m glad I read this- it‘s my daughter‘s (13) favorite book. The wonky writing style simply didn‘t work for me. I can appreciate what he was doing- it just fell flat on me. I‘m so glad she read this and really took in the history. A necessary book but .... it didn‘t grip me like it intended.

Fascinating. It shifts the lens and allows the readers to see the behind the scenes of the Fuhrer aka Patient A and basically the men behind Adolf Hitler. This was such a wonderful and *stimulating* read, I was addicted. I will probably get a second dose of this in the future. Currently now shelved as a favorite. Books after all are my drug.

New book group read ... book group this morning (lovely catch up and tea and cakes) .. then Christmas shopping and a Cosmopolitan after braving the shops 😀 think this will be a good Christmas read .. “sinister” “frightening” and “gripping” are the words describing it on the cover 📚😀🌟✨

This is a Rivers of London novella, but we aren‘t in London, and we have no Peter Grant and no Thomas Nightingale. Kobna Holdbrook-Smith doesn‘t even narrate the audiobook. Instead, we‘re introduced to Tobias Summer who‘s in the German version of a magical police unit. I liked the story and the narrator, but it lacks the humor of the Grant novels. It has humor — just not as much. I would read more books with this mc but will always prefer Grant.

Wunderschöne Geschichte, die Mut und Hoffnung macht. Gleichzeitig auch wahnsinnig traurig. Ich ziehe meinen Hut.

Besser als der erste Teil aber immer noch sehr zäh und vorausschaubar.

Gibt besseres. Landschaftlich klasse, aber nicht ganz mein Fall.
