The Oversight by Charlie Fletcher #BookReview

 
Only five still guard the borders between the worlds.
Only five hold back what waits on the other side. 


Once the Oversight, the secret society that policed the lines between the mundane and the magic, counted hundreds of brave souls among its members. Now their numbers can be counted on a single hand. 

When a vagabond brings a screaming girl to the Oversight's London headquarters, it seems their hopes for a new recruit will be fulfilled - but the girl is a trap. 

As the borders between this world and the next begin to break down, murders erupt across the city, the Oversight are torn viciously apart, and their enemies close in for the final blow. 

This gothic fantasy from Charlie Fletcher (the Stoneheart trilogy) spins a tale of witch-hunters, supra-naturalists, mirror-walkers and magicians. Meet the Oversight, and remember: when they fall, so do we all.




Charlie Fletcher is the author of the internationally acclaimed Stoneheart trilogy. He also writes for film, television and as a newspaper columnist.Charlie lives in Edinburgh with his wife and two children.

This book is set in a alternative, dark Victorian London. This London is full of witch hunters, supernatural creatures, and much more. This book kept me guessing the whole time and completely engrossed through the entire novel. I really liked the interesting cast of characters in this book. I also liked how the author described the plot so well. The monsters in this story were very interesting. The world building could have used a little work but it was decent.
