Publisher's Summary

Sometimes you look in the mirror...sometimes it looks back.
Those who belong to the secret society called The Oversight know many things. They know cold iron will hold back the beasts in the darkness. They know it is dangerous to stand between two mirrors. And they know that despite their dwindling numbers, it remains their duty to protect humanity from the predations of the supernatural. And vice versa.
But two of the society's strongest members, Mr. Sharp and Sara Falk, are trapped in the world between the mirrors, looking for each other, searching for a way back home. What they discover there will have ominous consequences both for The Oversight and the world it protects - effects that will make them question everything they thought they knew.
The dark waters rise. The candle is guttering. But the light still remains. For now....


What the Critics Say

"The Oversight is - and let's be clear here - something very special.... It's oh so moreish a morsel. I'd read a prequel this evening, a sequel as soon as." (
"Exciting, exhilarating, scary and moving in equal measure, The Oversight is a teeming world of dark deeds and dark magics, brilliantly realised. This feels like the start of something amazing." (M. R. Carey, author of The Girl with All the Gifts)
"A highly entertaining fantasy that promises a trilogy worth sinking your teeth into." (SciFiNow)
"A dark and glinting book...told in a kind of compelling and hypnotic poesie that I just lapped up.... I'll certainly be reading the next one." (Cory Doctorow,

different narrator

really enjoyed the 1st book, Simon prebble really captured the character's in the oversight. for some reason, he was not present for the last 2 books. it was difficult to get used to a new narrator after enjoying the 1st book so much. but after a few chapters to get used to the authors voice, I really enjoyed this book as well. And can not wait to start the next.
