Book Review: Rivers of London

After hearing a lot about this series I could not wait to start this book, it being the first in the series and only hearing good things I thought it was right up my street. Especially as being a MAHOOOOOSIVE Harry Potter fan, and this being quoted as 'What would happen if Harry Potter grew up and joined the fuzz' (Diana Gabaldon) I thought yes, this book will be there in my top favourites. 

Its not. 

Not to say I didn't really enjoy this book, I absolutely love the idea and I am still reading the rest of the series but I didn't fall in love with it how I wanted to. To be really honest I was expecting it to be more real but I felt like it was a bit silly. I know that isn't very explanatory but I just wasn't a fan of how it was written. 

The story kept me turning pages and I wanted to read until the end to find out what was causing all of the magic disturbance but other than that it just didn't tickle my fancy. It was however a really good, fun read and I loved all of the references of it being in London, my favourite city. It made me feel like I was there in the story which was something I really did enjoy. As I am now onto book number two as I write this I have realised how much I did actually enjoy this book, I just thought he could of done more.
