Publisher's Summary

A secret city where magic went to hide. An ancient evil desperate to get inside.

Once, there was magic in London, but when a monster made of hunger came to devour it all, the Uncanny were forced to abandon their home.

And so they fled to Other London, a secret city adjacent to their own, and there they hid, barricaded and isolated from the rest of the world.

For 200 years, the people of Other London have cowered behind closed doors. No one can get in, and no one can get out. Until, one day, the impossible happens: Someone from outside finds their way into the hidden city.

Verity Adams has no magic in her - she doesn’t even believe in the stuff - so how on earth did she find herself in Other London? And could she be a sign that something much worse is about to follow her? Something the Uncanny thought they had locked out for good? Something that has been clawing at the door, hungry for magic, for two long centuries....

Get Other London now for an epic urban-fantasy series unlike anything you have heard before.

Mystical, Quirky and Entertaining

I found Other London to be quite interesting and intense especially with the addition of new characters. The storyline and writing are superb and full of action packed twist that will make you go wow I didn't see that coming. You really need to sit and listen to the story because it jumps through time but it does come around full circle so you will get lost one minute and the next completely understand what is going on. The story brings back some of my favorite quirky characters but keeps things interesting with the addition of the new characters good and bad. The narration of Heather Tracy is so phenomenal that I was instantly hooked and could not stop listen because she brings the story to life it was like watching a movie. I highly recommend this book it may be long but it is definitely well worth it. This is my honest unbiased review. Excellent.

Diabolically delightful...

NO SPOILERS HERE. Whenever I start a new book from any of the Uncanny Kingdom series, I know I am in for a whacky, wonderful, mind-boggling adventure. The bar is set high. Other London left that bar in the dust. If you have read any of the other Uncanny Kingdom books, you will know to expect wonderfully unique and diverse characters that are unexpectedly relatable given their Uncanny abilities and origins. You will also recognize the delightful and uniquely British flavor of snarky repartee. Another commonality of the Uncanny books is the carefully crafted, highly imaginative story lines guaranteed to captivate, enthrall, and entrance the reader. I found Other London even more beguiling, however, in that it offers a magnificent array of Machiavellian intricacies woven into the plot that add both drama and dimension to the basic premise. If you have enjoyed any of the other Uncanny Kingdom books, if you enjoy urban fantasy, if you appreciate well-constructed plots with amazing characters, loads of magic and time travel, this is not one to miss. The narrator, Heather Tracy, could not have been more perfect for this piece. She captures your attention from the very start. She brings the story and each character to life so realistically you can see the entire book played out in your mind with perfect clarity. Find the time, find the money, just be sure to find a copy of this audiobook – your efforts will not go unrewarded. I can’t wait for the next adventure in this splendid new series. I was provided with a copy of this audiobook by the author and I am voluntarily offering my honest and unbiased review.

Mr Trick is coming to town, and he's hungry!

As always, Heather Tracy's narration brings the story to life in a way that draws the reader in and doesn't stop until it's done. Her performance, the voices, the passion with which she delivers the story serve to make her one of my favourite narrators. So. 'other London' has come into being as a vault, a place of safety for all the uncanny of London, but is it safe? Somebody wants to get in, is insistently rapping at the doors, and somebody wants to get out. Stella Familiar is back again to save the uncanny, but no, she's changed, 200 years of wallowing in her grief has left her battered and unwilling to help anyone but herself. Is everything as it should be? The great wizard Giles Lemerrier seems to think so. Highly recommend.

A whole other world

I really enjoyed this but you have to have listened or read the London Coven series to have any hope of understanding what is going on but luckily it is just as great a series as this book. This is a new series but a lot of names you know and love are also present, also one that is enough to send you into your own lockdown. Wow, what to say about this book? so much is going on and with time jumping it is not always in the right order but somehow this adds to the story's charm because you will get a lot of 'arh, that's way' moments as things unfold and the story catches up. The characters are interesting, very unique and never what you expect, a bit like the story. So I suggest you sit back and try to hold on as you hurtle through a very different London. Other London is a place born out of desperation. A monster called Mr Trick what's to consume all of the magic in the world by eating all the uncanny's, to save them Other London was built and sealed up tight. But he wants in and without the London Coven of witches to stop him who will stand in his way? Stella Familiar, the only one of the coven to have survived and she is just the witches familiar with no real magic of her own, has suffered to much to care but can she be made too? Because the knocking won't stop. If Mr Trick has tried for two centuries to get in, then somebody is bound to be trying to get out and with the arrival of the human Verity into the world, then somebody might have just found a way to open the door. Wow the narrator is amazing. She sent chills down my back with some of the voices used and she most definitely brought the book alive. I hope she continues to be the narrator of choice for this series because there is no way anybody could do it justice after this one.
