Skulls and Stone Circles: A Magic Connection

 Ritual Crime Unit

By EE Richardson

A  Net Galley review

Here we have a parallel but very similar earth to ours.

Here the magic and dark powers do exist and there are criminals who exploit these powers and thus we need a police section specially dedicated to dealing with these elements and criminals.

This was in many ways a fairly typical police procedural but with the extra element of magic. We have a lot of skulls being scattered around in various places that need to be connected by the powers that be – and then they do connect them and realise who collected the skulls, why they were collected and what is the significance of the stone circles to the skulls.

Typical detective work but they need to ask some very unusual people to assist them.

I enjoyed this as an unusual form of police procedural and thought that overall the concept of the parallel world was well thought out. The writing style was clear and brought you into the understanding of the world that was inhabited by the characters and their life.

I would recommend this book to those who like fantasy set in a familiar situation.
