Matthew Swift Series by Kate Griffin - July 18th 2013, 07:12 AM

Wow.

These books just blew my mind. I inhaled the first four books in the series in a matter of days, and am now midway through the first book of the second series because I just can't get enough.

It's a fantasy series, sort of a Harry Potter for adults but with more contemporary relevance and far better humour. It's set in London, but has a familarity to it that anyone can identify with.

The plural pronoun speech of the main narrator takes a little while to get used to , but give it time - trust me, it's worth it.

1# A Madness of Angels
2# The Midnight Mayor
3# The Neon Court (probably my favourite)
4# The Minority Council

Now I want to Google everything related to the novels and find out if there really is a hidden world of sorcerers, imps, dryads, shamans and so on hiding away there (who use email). The urban magic just seems to make so much sense, was so incredibly well done.

Has anyone else read them? What were your thoughts?

Haven't even heard of them till reading this. They definitely sound interesting though, never read HP either but seen the movies which were good!
