I was excited to jump into this book. From the description it sounded very interesting and I expected it to be a quick read. Within a few chapters I was having a difficult time following the multiple story lines even though it was clear that they would tie up nicely further into the story.

I didn’t connect with any of the characters, and Dale’s constant testicle pain made it difficult for me to want to continue to read. After struggling for four days to make progress in the book, I gave up at 50%. This is my first DNF (did not finish) in years.

Ceri Edwards and two school friends lift the lid on an ancient book of recipes belonging to Betty Williams, a volunteer at the local hospital in Pontypridd, South Wales. Two Kansas City cops step off a flight at London Heathrow and one of them falls to the ground with a painful conviction that there's something evil in the air. United in their destinies, Ceri and the police officers are drawn into a world where prophecies are pitted against invisible forces planning to raze London to the ground and bring down the Royal Family. It all rests with Dai Williams, recently knighted MI5 agent and reluctant hero, to bring some order to the improbable events and to ensure that afternoon tea at The Ritz continues for another hundred years. A great cross between Kim Newman and Ben Aaranovitch and a thrill for any fan of contemporary urban horror.
