Description

The Elemental Detectives is a richly imagined, inventive and immersive fantasy adventure.” - L. Norry, author of Son of the Circus Step into a London lit up by the Elemental spirits: the fiery Dragons, the airy Fumis, the watery Chads and the earthbound Magogs. The world-building was a good idea – Georgian London, but with a whole host of elemental spirits filling the city. There’s a lot to explore here! Unfortunately, this book barely examined the idea of how this world is different from our own based on these elemental spirits. Instead, it just seems to be the real Georgian London… only with a bunch of spirits lurking around corners. There was a line early on about how the dragons “were not forgiven for the unfortunate incident of 1666.” (p. 3-4) This is what I’d like to see more of – if there are elemental spirits, they probably interacted with human history! Aside from the Great Fire, where else do we see their handiwork? I know it’s not fair to hold fantasy world-building to the standard of J.K. Rowling or Jonathan Stroud, but I did want more out of this. A London where magic sparks just beneath the surface - this book is set to ignite young imaginations. The Elemental Detectives is a rip roaring magical adventure… Patrice Lawrence has done a marvellous job of building an imaginative and creative mythology which lurks just under the city streets.“ Catherine Johnson, author of Freedom
