Summary

"Exciting, exhilaring, scary and moving in equal measure, The Oversight is a teeming world of dark deeds and dark magics, brilliantly realized." - M. R. Carey


The Last Hand of the Oversight still patrols the border between the natural and supranatural, holding a candle to the darkness. But this new Hand is unproven, its fresh members untrained, its veterans weary and battle-scarred. Their vulnerability brings new enemies into the city, and surprising new allies from across the sea.

But most surprising of all are new revelations about the Oversight's past, revelations that will expose the true peril of the world in which Sharp and Sara are trapped -- the secret of the Black Mirrors, and what lies beyond. And the catastrophic danger that will follow them home, if they ever manage to return.

The dark waters rise. The candles are guttering. But the light still remains.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

I'll certainly be reading the next one. Cory Doctorow, BoingBoing.net on The Oversight
Fletcher's Victorian London is juicily vivid, and laced with macabre wit. There's a real sense of grim danger, both natural and unnatural, hungrily awaiting the slightest mis-step. Frances Hardinge on The Oversight
The second book can't come soon enough. Booklist (Starred Review)
A trilogy worth sinking your teeth into. SciFi Now on The Oversight
A thoughtfully dense, fully realized construct.... Best of all, you never know where it's going next. As good as or better than the opener. Grab. Kirkus
I couldn't stop reading... It really is a richly atmospheric and intensely readable slice of Victoriana: gothic as all get out, with a splendidly eerie sense of the way the unearthly lies cheek-by-jowl with the mundane. Cheerable goodies, grotesque baddies: the whole book is adventurous and flavorsome and gripping. I really enjoyed it. Adam Roberts on The Overight
Utterly enthralling: Charles Dickens meets Susanna Clarke. Lou Morgan on The Oversight
“Charlie Fletcher has a skill for bringing dry British humor to any situation. The Paradox is a delightfully dark story that forges myths and folklore and nightmares into modern twists. The worlds and characters described by the tale are full of life—or in some cases, death—and mystery. You will find yourself drawn into the strange and extraordinary tale, an eager new inhabitant of the world between the mirrors.” RT Book Reviews (4 stars)
A teeming world of dark deeds and dark magics, brilliantly realized. This feels like the start of something amazing. M. R. Carey on The Oversight
It's oh so moreish a morsel. I'd read a prequel this evening, a sequel as soon as. Niall Alexander, Tor.com on The Oversight
Those already familiar with this world will be delighted, and newcomers will eagerly lose themselves in this utterly imaginative fantasy. Publishers Weekly (starred review) on The Paradox
“Utterly enthralling: Charles Dickens meets Susanna Clarke.” Lou Morgan, praise for the series
