Description

The hugely anticipated brand-new Rivers of London novel....

Peter Grant is facing fatherhood and an uncertain future with equal amounts of panic and enthusiasm. Rather than sit around, he takes a job with émigré Silicon Valley tech genius Terrence Skinner's brand-new London start-up - the Serious Cybernetics Company. 

Drawn into the orbit of Old Street's famous 'silicon roundabout', Peter must learn how to blend in with people who are both civilians and geekier than he is. Compared to his last job, Peter thinks it should be a doddle. But magic is not finished with Mama Grant's favourite son. 

Because Terrence Skinner has a secret hidden in the bowels of the SCC. A technology that stretches back to Ada Lovelace and Charles Babbage and forward to the future of artificial intelligence. A secret that is just as magical as it technological - and just as dangerous.

Mistakes were made when publishing

The chapters are in the wrong order... Makes listening very difficult to understand. Not happy.

Love the series. This one is the weakest

Struggled. Felt edited and backstory when none needed and none when lots needed. Ended quickly. Philosophically so much more could have been drawn out. Magic vs AI vs what it means to be human vs god and so on Still. Can’t wait for the next one Kobna remains an awesome narrator

Narrator gives so much life to these books

i heard there's a TV series in the making and really hope they give Kobna Holdbrook Smith the Peter Grant role. Can't imagine anither voice with Peter Grant.

Hatte mich sehr drauf gefreut...

Das ganze Buch hat mit den Rivers of London nichts mehr zu tun. Beverlys Sätze kann man an einer Hand abzählen... von den ganzen anderen wundervollen Figuren der letzten Bücher taucht fast niemand auf. Selbst Tobi nur einmal. Peters progress in magic being mentioned only once. Das ganze Buch wirkt wie im Eilverfahren geschrieben. Storyline. Bam. zusammenhangslos. Die Figuren leblos und zu Handpuppen des Storytellers degradiert. Freude macht wie immer Kobnas vocal acting. Was bleibt ist die Vorfreude aufs nächste Abenteuer!

Audio is more

When this newest installment of the Peter-Grant-saga came out I bought it in print, read and enjoyed it. Having read and listened to all the previous books of the series I even kind of heard it already in my internal ear when reading it. But now for a da capo I got in audio for real and it is just .. more. Performed by Kobra Holbrook-Smith this very good book - a new high-light for the series - becomes brilliant. An added bonus was the joint interview with the author and the performer ad the end.

Kluger Witz, gute Unterhaltung

Wieder ein amüsanter und kurzweiliger Roman der Peter-Grant-Reihe. Wer auf der Suche nach klugem Witz, einer Prise Fantasy und einem Krimi ist, der nicht mit Platitüden daherkommt, ist hier richtig. Eine schwer zu findende Mischung, die fast ebenso speziell ist, wie einzigartigen Bücher von Douglas Adams. Dazu der großartige Sprecher - absolut hörenswert!

Still my favorite series.

I used to read the books, but once I heard the velvet tones of this particular reader, I never went back. This plot was full of twists (as always), I love the development of characters - by now they feel like old friends. Can only recommend.

Another great story

Really liked the story, also we get to know more about the Rivers. Looking forward to the next book, there is a huge Cliffhanger in the end.
