Amazon Editorial Review:

This book is set in London, 1826. Leaving behind his father's tragic failures, Gabriel Swift arrives to study with Edwin Poll, the greatest of the city's anatomists. It is his chance to find advancement by making a name for himself. But instead he finds himself drawn to his master's nemesis, Lucan, the most powerful of the city's resurrectionists and ruler of its trade in stolen bodies. Dismissed by Mr Poll, Gabriel descends into the violence and corruption of London's underworld, a place where everything and everyone is for sale, and where - as Gabriel discovers - the taking of a life is easier than it might seem.

Yet another case of finding I have more than one copy sitting in Mt TBR!

2 out of 10

I am sorry to say that I have given up on this book entirely. I stopped at page 197 because I was bored. The book is said to be a brooding Gothic horror, in my eyes it is just brooding. A book isn't interesting because it deals with loads of corpses being dug up. It was found lacking.
Let's see who else might want to try it!

Received from Moriquen as part of the Never Won a Sweepstake UK/EU sweepstake, together with some BC bookmarks and a cute wire-bookmark in the shape of a bear - and he's purple! Currently one of my favourite colours! :)

Thanks for sending this book my way. I haven't heard of this author before joining BC but I like brooding gothic books. We'll see if I get to the end. ;)   If I managed to finish "Interview With a Vampire", which I struggled with for quite a while, then I can finish anything! Well, almost. ;)
