I really really LOVED this book.
I didn't mind that the cliffhanger after book 4 got resolved so quickly as it allowed for the story to continue at a good pace.
But yeah: sheer awesome.

This is definitely my favourite series after the Nightside (which still remains my ultimate favourite).

Just been listening to this, and I've just realised something. Becks gets mentioned a hell of a lot. Has SRG got a new favourite drink?

John Taylor has wormwood brandy, Eddie Drood has Becks.
(Of course I think he should drink Duvel, that would be so much more hilariously appropriate).

Now there's a book I would love to see become a series.

It didn't sell enough for the publisher to want any more. Simon had a squeal in mind, but it was turned down.

It didn't sell well in the US, far toooo British for them (apart from the fans here of course).

People that live within a 10 mile radius of BoA aren't really enough to make it a best seller :lol:

Damn.

It is a real shame that Simon is so under appreciated in Britain. It's nice to read something that isn't dripping in Americanisms.

And I think that the literacy rate of the 10 mile radius of BoA is too low to make any local book a best seller. (I have met people in their 20s that have NEVER read a book!)
