URBAN FANTASY REVIEW: Anarchy - James Treadwell

Release Date: 04/07/13
Publisher:  Hodder


I am everything no longer forgotten. I banish forgetting. My seed has grown and become prophecy. Truth walks the world above. Magic is risen to the world once more. In Cornwall, they have seen it rise: in an angel of death and endless, unseasonal snow. Across the ocean, on a remote Canadian island, the blood and offerings and smoke of England seem nothing more than distant rumours of hysteria. Until the girl disappears. And the whale comes. And The Plague spreads. And nothing is as it was before.


The second book in a fantasy series unlike any other as James returns to the world he created in Advent that not only continues to build upon the invention of the original but really delivers a story that is not only gripping but one that continues to build upon the mystery that the reader will just love to unravel.

Add to the mix solid prose, characters that you really can’t get out of your head as well as a storytelling style that not only envelops the reader but draws them deeper into the world all round makes this a book that is nigh impossible to put down.
