Publisher's Summary

They live among us. Hiding in plain sight. Until now....

West London has always been known as the quieter part of the city. That's true...for a human. But in reality, the streets are home to those that rule over the supernatural world.

Werewolves have their gated communities. Vampires reside within a subterranean utopia. And the magic-wielding wizards, witches, and warlocks study their arts right under the noses of general public. It has always been that way, and because of this, there has always been peace. 

But when a rare blue moon settles in the sky, everything changes. 

Noir, a West London information broker with his fingers in every supernatural pie, sets out to discover what the blue moon means and finds something beyond belief. With his discovery, comes the realization of a prophecy that spells disaster for the supernatural world. 

He must do everything in his power to stop the actualization of this dark future that might mean the end for the peace between species that keeps his world intact. 

Magic, secrets, and unexpected twists will keep you on the edge of your seat in this supernatural urban fantasy debut. It's perfect for fans of Rivers of London, The Magicians, and American Gods.

New voice. Not bad!

I’ve listened to several from Hannibal Hills, but this is my first DO Thomas book. It’s old-school urban fantasy with a few twists. Kind of cool that it takes place in the UK. A lot of characters to follow, but it all comes together.

Fantastic urban fantasy tale and great narration!

A fantastic urban fantasy tale set in London. The author it's a new one for me and I thought he did an excellent job bringing the fantasy elements together and giving the plot a classic feel. The narrator was also great and I'm looking forward to the next installment!

Good storyline

I was given a free code and I am leaving this review voluntarily.

Whilst I enjoyed the storyline and characters and loved Hannibals narration there a few things I did not like.
One being the stereo typing of certain things the main one that comes to mind is “Just like a single mother on benefits loves leopard print” 😡 there is no need to add these types of things in a book like this and for this I can’t give 5 stars
