So Alan will be back as Absolem. Can they make his face more like Alan? Or would that be too weird? Like this isn’t weird enough that it looks like Anthony Hopkins?

they should!!  Except… if it continues where the other left off, he’ll be a butterfly now, so his face will be even smaller!! 

They should give his butterfly face a big nose…

BOOK REC OF THE WEEK - The Peter Grant Novels by Ben Aaronivitch

  1. Rivers of London (Midnight Riot as the U.S. release)
  2. Moon Over Soho
  3. Whispers Underground
  4. Broken Homes
  5. Foxglove Summer (coming September 2014!)

Probationary Constable Peter Grant dreams of being a detective in London’s Metropolitan Police. Too bad his superior plans to assign him to the Case Progression Unit, where the biggest threat he’ll face is a paper cut. But Peter’s prospects change in the aftermath of a puzzling murder, when he gains exclusive information from an eyewitness who happens to be a ghost. Peter’s ability to speak with the lingering dead brings him to the attention of Detective Chief Inspector Thomas Nightingale, who investigates crimes involving magic and other manifestations of the uncanny. Now, as a wave of brutal and bizarre murders engulfs the city, Peter is plunged into a world where gods and goddesses mingle with mortals and long-dead evil is making a comeback on a rising tide of magic.

PLEASE READ THIS SERIES!!!!! It is honestly so damn good. And it’s often described as  ”what would happen if Harry Potter grew up and joined hte fuzz.” The main character is Peter Grant, a mixed race, sarcastic little shit of a narrator, who discovers he can do magic, and constantly compares it to Harry Potter, Doctor Who, and a whole other number of great pop-culture references. He’s a London policeman, apprentice wizard to actual wizard Thomas Nightingale (WHO AGES BACKWARD LIKE BENJAMIN BUTTON), with a “will-they-won’t-they” relationship with his best friend and partner. These books have magic, an incredibly diverse and fascinating cast of characters, river goddesses (really, this is like the best fucking part), and lots of jazz. The mysteries are fascinating and fun and the narration is fast-paced and exciting. I read all four of them in less than two weeks, and Broken Homes leaves you with a pretty heavy cliffhanger, so you’ll be dying for more!!!! My favorite book in the series so far is Moon Over Soho, though all four are really just fantastic. They really have a wonderful Harry Potter-vibe, but also create its own entire world in London. I’ve even gone onto google maps to look up locations and places mentioned in the books. And if all of that isn’t reason enough to check these out…… have this quote….

"Actually I’d always thought he sat in the library with a slim volume of metaphysical poetry until the commissioner called him on the bat phone and summoned him into action. Holy paranormal activity, Nightingale - to the Jag mobile." - Whispers Underground

HERE+ is another list of reasons why you should read these books.

My favorite series in ages!

My current obsession.
I kind of want to buy the American version of Rivers, Midnight Riot, to see if it’s true about all the translating and editing that goes on for American readers! It has so many British references and colloquialisms.

I adore this series! Rereading them all before I read Broken Homes.
