Nineveh is “urban fantasy classic”

Jared Shurin – of Pornokitsch, and until recently publisher at Jurassic London – has long been an enthusiastic supporter of Nineveh. Read his new review, written to mark the UK and US editions :

A contemporary urban fantasy classic … creepy, crawly and a little bit chilling …Nineveh works excellently as a metaphor for gentrification and class structure, but, for me, the real strength was in Katya’s own journey – an exploration of empathy and the tenuous impossibility of finding balance. Katya tries to travel between two worlds; she’s a good soldier and a loyal daughter, but also attempting to adhere to a greater moral code. The resulting novel is a haunting mystery and a perceptive character study; an unsettling and gorgeous tale of what lies beneath.
