The only negatives were in the formatting of the ARC which made it hard to read in places, bur when this gets cleaned up for publication it'll be a great entry in the series.

In McDonnell’s third instalment following the journalists of The Stranger Times, we join the action after Hannah has abruptly left, and everyone is convinced Banecroft is responsible for it.While all is a go at the paper we are also tracking what is happening with Hannah who has agreed to go to a "celebrity clinic" type facility at the behest of her ex husband. K. McDonnell and audio narrator Brendan McDonald once again delivered an amazing story with this continuation of The Stranger Times series. Each book in the series introduces more fantastical characters orbiting around the motley crew of The Stranger Times.

There is serious creativity here and if you are looking to escape the chaos of today’s society, then these books might just tick the right boxes for you. It also had a lot of quite suspenseful chapters and brought the character development to a new level There where more storylines in this one and I missed the group dynamic of the Stranger Times, but the ensuing chaos made up for that. One of the best things about this book is it continues the intrigue surrounding the different factions vying for power or advantage in this magical world of the Founders and Folk.

Such things are not unusual when Vincent Banecroft is the editor of your paper, a broken shell of a monster with the empathy of a turkey twizzler. We catch up with the gang, as chaos reigns, and we're introduced to a new assistant editor Rosie, who is a great character. Indeed, as we find Hannah contemplating the oddities about her divorce proceedings, it seems she has a role to play still, thank goodness. If you're looking for a quirky, mystery filled, modern era fantasy series packed with all sorts of supernatural critters, a fantastic 'found family' in the form of the Stranger Times publication employees, banter, seriously 'strange things', drama, tension and heart in the throat endings, stop looking.

Banecroft’s life revolves around waiting for ghosts to appear so he can talk to his deceased wife, convinced her spirit is in trouble. Die Bücher sind einfach immer absolut kurzweilig und durchgekramt, aber so charmant und liebevoll, dass man sie einfach lieben muss! It is hard to "compare" such books - maybe the closest for me would be the work of Jasper Fforde at times. I'm not sure if you'd be able to read this as a stand alone but I would seriously recommend reading The Stranger Times and This Charming Man anyway. The increased cast was dispersed fairly thinly, sometimes operating in isolation and had so little to do with the main action I questioned why they were even given page space.

Grace’s meltdown was more surprising than anything else, since so far she had been the one to withstand the worst (i. Once you have you started Love Will Tear Us Apart you will be shocked to find that stalwart Hannah has up and left the office with zero notice. About ten years ago when the UF genre exploded I never lacked for anything to read but these days the genre seems to have dried up and I’m looking for something fresh and new!

Is the overarching series something that is obvious or is it more of a series of standalone stories featuring the same characters? I was pleased to pick out the ‘correct’ fictional conspiracy theory, which sub-plot was excellently put together. Floating statues, hijacked ghosts, homicidal cherubs, irate starlings, Reliant Robins and quite possibly several deeply sinister conspiracies; all-in-all, a typical week for the staff of The Stranger Times. But I agree that overall, this one delivers lots of humour, weirdness and at times – plain tragedy, in a page-turning adventure. In this time of crisis, is her decision to swan off to a fancy new-age retreat run by a celebrity cult really the best thing for anyone?Not himself, his behaviour causes a major upset in the office and, when a new assistant editor arrives on the scene, it’s clear to all that something is very amiss. I would thoroughly recommend this series to lovers of Brookmyre, Pratchett or Urban Fantasy in general. There is a new assistant editor to replace Hannah who to Banecroft's disgust has been given the job by the owner over his head. Love Will Tear Us Apart is as completely and wonderfully bonkers as the previous two books in this series.
