    Dark fantasy meets occult thriller!

    I did receive a copy of this book but this is my honest opinion - and I wouldn't have read it in two sittings on the same day if I hadn't thought it was marvellous! I've loved all of JF Penn's fiction output (and her non-fiction as Joanna Penn), and I've always been impressed at the way she weaves wider societal concerns or cultural contexts into her thrillers. She achieves a level of depth that you don't always see in the genre. Map of Shadows is slightly different in that it's a remix of the thriller genre via dark urban fantasy (hooray!) but she still includes thought-provoking themes and messages. This time, it's around the nature of borders, identity, and the changing importance of places, people, and even the things that we do. It's a highly inventive read, mixing real places (Old Aleppo, Venice's Poveglia plague island, and Bath) with a shadowy realm of the forgotten, the abandoned, and the unwanted. And there's magic, which is really all you can ask for from a book. Thoroughly recommended and I can't wait to see what she does with the next instalment!

    An Awesome Read

    A new series with interesting characters and plot. I've always enjoyed books written about other dimensions and this one is very enjoyable and intriguing. The combination of action, magic and suspense makes this an almost perfect read. It just ends to quickly. What a great first book to a series, I looking forward to the next one.
