The Remnant

8 Reviews

Rated 0

Oversight Trilogy, Fiction, Fantasy, Historical fiction

THE OVERSIGHT trilogy comes to a thrilling end in THE REMNANT. M. R. Carey says 'exciting, exhilarating, scary and moving in equal measure, THE OVERSIGHT is a teeming world of dark deeds and dark magics, brilliantly realised'

'THE OVERSIGHT is most dangerous when most reduced. There are many dead and gone who did not remember that.'

The Oversight of London has been sworn for millennia to prevent the natural and the supernatural worlds from preying on each other.

Now at its lowest ebb, with its headquarters destroyed and its last members scattered far and wide, this secret society will battle for survival and face the harshest foe it has ever met: itself.

'Exciting, exhilarating, scary and moving in equal measure, THE OVERSIGHT is a teeming world of dark deeds and dark magics, brilliantly realised' - M. R. Carey on The Oversight

Praise for The Remnant

  • 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

  • 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 misstep

  • A dark and glinting book . . . told in a kind of compelling and hypnotic poesie that I just lapped up . . . I'll certainly be reading the next one

  • The Paradox is the real deal, darkly dusted Dickensian counter mythology at its very best.

  • A highly entertaining fantasy that promises a trilogy worth sinking your teeth into

  • 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 for The Oversight)

  • 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. - Tor.com

  • 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
