Review: The Peter Grant/Rivers of London series by Ben Aaronovitch

Lies Sleeping

Lies Sleeping by Ben Aaronovitch

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I just finished Lies Sleeping after reading the entire series straight through, so this review is about the series as much as about the ultimate entry in it.

Wow! I’ve been immersed in the marvelous world Aaronovitch created for us, and it’s a shock coming back. His world lives right next door to ours, changed just a bit so that magic is in use next to cell phones and deities walk and work amongst the “normal” folk. His descriptions of London and its surrounds are amazingly rich. The slang and British references are occasionally mysterious to this American reader, but I got enough from context to push right on.

I think Lies Sleeping might be intended as the last book in the series because it wrapped up pretty much all of the plot threads that have been building from Rivers of London to Lies Sleeping. If that’s the case, I’ll miss Peter and the rest of the characters. I can hope that Aaronovitch will give us more in the future, though. I will certainly be watching to see what he does next!
