Présentation de l'éditeur

Only five still guard the borders between the worlds.
Only five hold back what waits on the other side.

Once the Oversight, the secret society that polices the lines between the mundane and the magic, counted hundreds of brave souls among its members. Now their number can be tallied on a single hand.

When a drunkard brings a screaming girl to the Oversight's London headquarters, it seems their hopes for a new recruit will be fulfilled - but the girl is a trap, her appearance a puzzle the five remaining guardians must solve or lose each other, and their society, for good.

As the borders between the natural and the supernatural begin to break down, brutal murders erupt across the city, the Oversight are torn viciously apart, and their enemies close in for the final blow.

This dark Dickensian fantasy spins a tale of witch-hunters, magicians, mirror-walkers and the unlikeliest of heroes drawn from the depths of British folklore. Meet the Oversight, and remember: when they fall, so do we all.

'Exciting, exhilarating, scary and moving in equal measure, The Oversight is a teeming world of dark deeds and dark magics, brilliantly realised. This feels like the start of something amazing'
M. R. Carey, author of THE GIRL WITH ALL THE GIFTS

'Told in a kind of compelling and hypnotic poesie that I just lapped up . . . I'll certainly be reading the next one'
Cory Doctorow, BoingBoing.net

'The Oversight is - and let's be clear here - something very special . . . It's oh so moreish a morsel. I'd read a prequel this evening, a sequel as soon as.'
Niall Alexander, Tor.com

'A highly entertaining fantasy that promises a trilogy worth sinking your teeth into'
SciFiNow

'Fletcher's Victorian London is juicily vivid, and laced with macabre Dickensian wit. There's a real sense of grim danger, both natural and unnatural, hungrily awaiting the slightest mis-step'
Frances Hardinge

'Richly atmospheric (the evil lurks in the background of every paragraph), the book should be a big hit with supernatural-fantasy readers ... the second book can't come soon enough'
Booklist (starred review)

'A richly atmospheric and intensely readable slice of Victoriana, with a splendidly eerie sense of the way the unearthly lies cheek-by-jowl with the mundane'
Adam Roberts

'Utterly enthralling: Charles Dickens meets Susanna Clarke'
Lou Morgan

'A remarkable combination of British folklore, brisk pacing and wide-ranging imagination'
Kirkus Reviews

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Wonderful new fantasy 16 juin 2014
Par Amazon Customer - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
I cannot imagine how I can be the first person to review this marvelous new fantasy. There should be a thousand reviews, all saying this book is an exciting opening to a new trilogy.

The Oversight is an organization in Victorian England (though of much, much older origins) that is down to few members. It must survive to protect the world from the supranaturals, and to protect the supranaturals from the world, so to speak. They are keepers of the Lore and the Law, making sure that everything keeps to its proper level.

A young girl with bits of her memory missing comes into their lives and the story unfolds from there. What I loved in particular were the excellent descriptions of each character (good and bad), the amount of engagement that the author drew from me, and how much I was vested in the outcome.

The story was exciting, colorful, full of the kind of clever British writing that many of us love. If the trilogy pans out, I will keep it on my shelves next to Gaiman, Mieville, and Harkaway. High praise, indeed!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Mesmerizing and Magical. 19 juin 2014
Par Natalie @ Book Lovers Life - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
There is a secret society that patrols the border between the known and unknown. On one side you have the normals and on the other you have the magical people. The society is called the Oversight. There was once hundreds of them but now there are 5.

When Lucy is brought to the Oversight headquarters, she was bound and gagged and had no clue who they were or what they wanted from her. When these people start saying things that they shouldn't know, Lucy realises there's more at play here than what she thought! See Lucy is different, when she touches things she gets visions. Everyone told her she was crazy and she started believing them until Sarah, the head of the Oversight, told her what she was. She is a Glint like Sara.

The second Lucy arrives it sets off a sequence of events that may cause the end of the society for good. Will the 5 be able to stop the things in the shadows from ending them? Who is this girl and why was she brought there?

Well this was such a pleasant surprise! When I was approached to review this it was the cover that caught my eye but it was the blurb that made me say yes.

This started out slow but the authors writing style kept me hooked. Rich in detail and set in Victorian London, I was captivated from the very start.

The whole lore of the Oversight was absolutely fascinating. They are a group of 5 that guard the divide between our world and the world of magic. Once there is always 5 in the group then the world is safe. We have Sarah, Cook, Mr Sharp, Hodge and The Smith. All very different but all intriguing and likable characters.

From the Oversight themselves to the creepy things in the shadows, we see a world full of magic and intrigue. It is a book that unwinds its secret slowly and should be savoured. From the dark and dangerous streets of London to the countryside with a travelling circus, The Oversight pulls you in and doesn't let go. The authors writing style was exquisite and mesmerizing, he doesn't just tell the story, he makes you apart of it and weaves it around you. With twist after twist, fascinating characters and its dark atmosphere The Oversight is a must read.
