I’ve been meaning to post about this for a while now, so here it is. Alexander Gordon Smith’s new series is shaping up to be a corker.
I’m currently about half way through the first book – I want to get it finished before I hear him talk about it at the Crystal Palace Book Festival – but it’s already scary and exhilarating in equal measure. The book’s very different to his Inventors stories, and it’s interesting to see him write for older readers. There’s burglary, torture and death, and all sorts of wonderfully nasty Prison Break style situations. I just hope that none of it’s based on real-life experience.
