Praise

“A low-income housing tower gone awry, an old enemy with a bone to pick…and a shocker of an ending—Broken Homes is a delight.“ —Charlaine Harris, #1 New York Times-bestselling author

“The prose is witty, the plot clever, and the characters incredibly likeable.” —Time Out

“It’s witty, fun, and full of vivid characters, and the plot twists will keep even seasoned mystery fans guessing.” —Publishers Weekly

“The perfect blend of CSI and Harry Potter.” —io9

“This book is, at its heart, a police procedural with an overlay of urban fantasy elements. The voice is persuasive and funny as all get-out, and the reader is engaged with the narrative from the very first page. Aaronovitch has written a diverse cast of characters who all feel like real people with their own specific motivations. This book is simply wonderful.” —RT Reviews (top pick)

“The most satisfying fantasy thriller to hit bookshelves in quite some time.” —SFX Magazine

“The most entertaining book that I have read in such a long time…. It’s very funny, it’s very clever, it’s very nicely written…. It’s such a treat.” —Nancy Pearl

“Aaronovitch makes the story sing, building momentum until the ending is literally breathless.” —SF Revu

“Aaronovitch has a very witty, casual voice, with a tendency toward sarcasm and humor, which is threaded throughout Broken Homes. And a few crazy plot twists will devastate and delight fans in equal measure.” —RT Reviews
