6. A bookmark inspired by the Goddesses of the River Thames.


Each item is exclusive to this box and inspired by the themes, locations and characters in the Rivers of London series by the amazing Ben Aaronovitch. I have had the pleasure of working with some great designers and illustrators in putting this box together and am privileged to showcase it in this unique book box. From the robust enamel mug (less likely to break than ceramic - ideal for apprentice wizards with a tendency to experiment with their forma) to the London watercolour inspired by Ben's description of London as 'capital of the world', this box is a must-have for any fans of the Rivers of London series.

Shipping begins next week (just in time for Christmas!) and we have a limited number available so order yours now and avoid disappointment.

Lies Sleeping by Ben Aaronovitch

Publisher: Gollancz
Publication date: 15 November 2018

Publisher Synopsis:

The seventh book of the bestselling Rivers of London urban fantasy series returns to the adventures of Peter Grant, detective and apprentice wizard, as he solves magical crimes in the city of London.

Martin Chorley, aka the Faceless Man, wanted for multiple counts of murder, fraud, and crimes against humanity, has been unmasked and is on the run. Peter Grant, Detective Constable and apprentice wizard, now plays a key role in an unprecedented joint operation to bring Chorley to justice.

But even as the unwieldy might of the Metropolitan Police bears down on its foe, Peter uncovers clues that Chorley, far from being finished, is executing the final stages of a long term plan. A plan that has its roots in London’s two thousand bloody years of history, and could literally bring the city to its knees.”

To save his beloved city Peter’s going to need help from his former best friend and colleague–Lesley May–who brutally betrayed him and everything he thought she believed in. And, far worse, he might even have to come to terms with the malevolent supernatural killer and agent of chaos known as Mr Punch….
