Renegade, Paperback
3 out of 5 (1 rating)


Paul has met his most audacious - and powerful - ancestor yet, Samuel Rector, who seemingly has the entire East End in thrall to him in the 1830s.

His legion of 'rat boys' use terror and menace ordinarily, but with the demon seed inside them, their powers know no end.

Their only match is Paul, the renegade, the one member of the Rector clan determined to strike each poisoned generation from the family history.

But nobody is stronger than Lud, the King of London, struggling against imprisonment in his cell where the city's five gates meet.

Review by

I found it interesting but the view of good and evil doesn't work for me, if there is evil surely there could be good but here all that is is shades of dark and darker. Paul is still trying to defeat Lud over time, this time he's in the 1830s and Samuel Rector is a power to reckon with in the East End. He has a group of boys who have demon seed power within themselves and with the arrival of Israel and his ability things are going to come to a head.It's not bad but I find myself not really caring.
