Exciting, exhilarating, scary and moving in equal measure, The Oversight is a teeming world of dark deeds and dark magics, brilliantly realised. This feels like the start of something amazing
M. R. Carey, author of THE GIRL WITH ALL THE GIFTS
Told in a kind of compelling and hypnotic poesie that I just lapped up . . . I'll certainly be reading the next one
Cory Doctorow, BoingBoing.net
The Oversight is - and let's be clear here - something very special . . . It's oh so moreish a morsel. I'd read a prequel this evening, a sequel as soon as.
Niall Alexander, Tor.com
A highly entertaining fantasy that promises a trilogy worth sinking your teeth into
Fletcher's Victorian London is juicily vivid, and laced with macabre Dickensian wit. There's a real sense of grim danger, both natural and unnatural, hungrily awaiting the slightest mis-step
Frances Hardinge, Costa Book of the Year winner
Richly atmospheric (the evil lurks in the background of every paragraph), the book should be a big hit with supernatural-fantasy readers ... the second book can't come soon enough
Booklist (starred review)
A richly atmospheric and intensely readable slice of Victoriana, with a splendidly eerie sense of the way the unearthly lies cheek-by-jowl with the mundane
Adam Roberts
A remarkable combination of British folklore, brisk pacing and wide-ranging imagination
