Laini Taylor’s ‘Daughter of Smoke and Bone’ is not set in London at all, but is a great novel nonetheless. It is an adventure, and romance, and a mystery which are mostly set in Prague but also ‘Elsewhere’. I really enjoyed reading this and look forward to its sequel ‘Days of Blood and Starlight’ very much.

Laini’s official website is found here; www.lainitaylor.com

Tom Pollock’s ‘The City’s Son’ is set in a modern/futuristic version of London which is a battleground for strange supernatural entities.

I would like to make very favourable comparison’s to ‘Neverwhere’ and ‘Un Lun Dun’ and can’t wait to read more about Beth and Filius in the following books.

Tom’s website is found here. He is also active on Twitter and Facebook.

No trailer but I did find an interview with Tom.

Kate Locke’s ‘God Save the Queen’ is modern Steam Punk set in a London with a number of historical differences to our own. Published in the last couple of weeks and featuring a kick-arse heroine this is an enjoyable start to an original series.

Kate has a rather nice website for the series, which already promises another book for next year.

There can even be found a soundtrack – awesome!

 

There isn’t a trailer for this one so I shall treat you instead to a video from the novel’s soundtrack..enjoy.
