The characters in Metropolitan Dreams are easy to relate to and engaging, but more than that, they exude a genuineness and realism that few authors can achieve. Mark A. King’s writing is fluid and peppered with just enough colloquial dialogue to keep the reader firmly in London. The plot intertwines the fantastical aspect of the the two spirits of London with the more realistic one of organised crime. The threads of both these sides of the story are equally intriguing and kept me wondering how it will all come together. Metropolitan Dreams is thought-provoking and original. This debut novel displays an impressive amount of writing skill, stamping Mark A. King as an author to keep an eye on.
