URBAN FANTASY REVIEW: The World House 2: Restoration - Guy Adams

Release Date: 07/07/11


None who enter the World House leave it unchanged.

They sought the box for many years, because held inside that arcane magical artefact was, miraculously, a house. But now its real purpose has become clear – it was a prison, and the infinitely evil being it was built to imprison has been let loose. Now the real quest begins in earnest.

This direct sequel to the critically acclaimed The World House is an extraordinary modern fantasy, like an episode of Doctor Who imagined by the twisted mind of Clive Barker.


Whilst the name may not be that well known to some of you, Guy has been the author behind a few surprise titles including the Gene Genie’s Guide to Policing. What you get with Guy Adams is a tale that is twisted, a story that is intricate and an incredibly warped outlook on the world. In short, you get a writer who does for fiction, what Garth Ennis has done for comics.

Add to this vivid characters, great dialogue alongside some wonderful sleight of hand and you really do have a story of adventure, mystery and humour all creatively blended to make something new. All in, this title was thoroughly enjoyable definitely one that I’m recommending to others.
