I feel as if The Name of the Star, Madness Underneath, and the Shadow Cabinet (yet to read) could be one novel. There's a beginning, middle, and end, ..Show More »yet at the conclusion of the novels I feel as if I'm still in the middle of the story.
This third installment to The Shades of London series was a long time in coming. I started to forget how much I had enjoyed the first two in the serie..Show More »s and my urgency to read The Shadow Cabinet waned. But then I decided to listen to it as one of my October Halloween reads this year, and I fell in love with the story and the characters all over again. I remembered why I wanted to read the third book so badly when I finished the second.
The Shadow Cabinet is every bit as gripping as the first two books in the series. I love the addition to the team, and I like how we get a glimpse of the larger picture in this book. I sense good things ahead for book four. The death cult headed by Jane, Sid, and Sadie is pretty chilling.
I've listened to all the books in this series, and I'm still just absolutely in love with the audio versions. The narrator, Nicola Barber, does a fantastic job with all the accents. The reading is varied. The pacing is good, and it's just a joy to listen to.
