Book Review + Giveaway: Shadows Over London

Title: Shadows Over London (Empire of the House of Thorns series – Book One) | Author: by Christian Klaver | Genre: YA Fiction | Publisher: CamCat Books | Release Date: May 2021

Book Description: The Faerie have come to take London, and only one girl stands in their way.

Justice isn’t your average fifteen-year-old girl. She’s an irrepressible scoundrel, and she always has a plan. But her world falls apart when her father forcibly bundles the entire family into carriages in the middle of the night and carts them off to a strange mansion on the outskirts of Victorian London. The Faerie are invading, but the Kasric siblings can’t stay neutral in the ensuing war when they find their parents on opposing sides. Justice has no choice but to embrace her burgeoning magical powers to fight against the Faerie and save her family.
My Thoughts: From the mysterious opening scene to the final battle at sea, Shadows Over London is full of surprises. Justice may have been taken away from all that she knows with a clan of siblings who don’t hide the fact that they dislike her, but that doesn’t stop her from leading an escape from the place they’ve been imprisoned. As they learn more about their parents’ disagreements and family members that they didn’t know they had, they realise that the family violently disagrees about the Faerie that are invading London. But with some of the children siding with one parent and some with the other, the family is torn apart just when they find they are in great danger. Intriguingly, Justice can see things that others can’t, thanks to her special eye, and her siblings soon discover their own magic. With adventure, mystery, an eclectic cast of uncharacteristic characters — like evil faeries, for one — Shadows Over London kicks off an intriguing series about a most unique family and a world unlike anything you’ve ever read about.
Meet the Author: Christian Klaver has been writing for over twenty years, with a number of magazine publications, including Escape Pod, Dark Wisdom Anthology, and Anti-Matter. He’s the author of The Supernatural Case Files of Sherlock Holmes series, but has written over a dozen novels, both fantasy and sci-fi, often with a Noir bent. He’s worked as book-seller, bartender and a martial-arts instructor before settling into a career in internet security. He lives just outside the sprawling decay of Detroit, Michigan, with his wife, Kimberly, his daughter, Kathryn, and a group of animals he refers to as The Menagerie. He’s also a part of the Untitled Writer’s Group based in Ann Arbor for the past decade or so with a bunch of equally starry-eyed dreamers and social misanthropes.
