About this deal

Unbeknownst to most mere mortals, it is a source of vital information for certain inexplicable individuals whose job is to maintain the balance of society and to keep the status quo in check. So how did I find myself checking the video doorbell from work to see if this blue jacketed, slightly mirrored tome had reached the damppebbles residence?

If you're looking for a quirky, mystery filled, modern era fantasy series packed with all sorts of supernatural critters, a fantastic 'found family' in the form of the Stranger Times publication employees, banter, seriously 'strange things', drama, tension and heart in the throat endings, stop looking. We understand more about why the previous agreements that kept the magic hidden are breaking down and the threats posed to inhabitants of the city. The owner of The Stranger Times gave him an opportunity to redeem himself and, although his behaviour was most times bullish and downright anti-social, he has provided an acceptable service to date. McDonnell brings us his standout cast of characters, we get the same main cast from The Stranger Times as well as cameos from some of our standout side characters, but what I love is that with each book he seems to take us deeper into the world of the magical.I think I might pick out Gordon's monologue on the characteristics of various bird species… - great writing. It’s a world where magic is starting to reappear and leak out from the previously tightly bolted social door that kept normal people, like myself, happily unaware of the talking dogs and strange powers that lurk around each corner! You need to be able to not take yourself, or the story too seriously, but they really are a riot to read and never fail to cheer me up.

Those niggles aside, though, McDonnell gave us closure on a couple of elements that had spanned the three books, which I appreciated, and cleared the way for new mysteries to beset the paper, like uncovering the deal with Stella. Hannah herself is undergoing some momentous changes: her meeting with a very different ex-husband Karl ends with her booking a stay at the Pinter Institute, an exclusive retreat where she experiences a very shaky start by falling flat on her face. In this time of crisis, is her decision to swan off to a fancy new-age retreat run by a celebrity cult really the best thing for anyone? There's a lot of characters and a lot of stuff was revealed in book 2, and it does wear the backstory a bit heavily (a common problem with these series: I had to give up on Rivers of London when the alternative seemed to be rereading the whole thing and possibly taking notes).While all is a go at the paper we are also tracking what is happening with Hannah who has agreed to go to a "celebrity clinic" type facility at the behest of her ex husband.
