Booklist Reviews 2017 March #2

Hyacinth Hayward and her mom recently moved to London and are staying at Hyacinth's aunt's apartment for the summer. The 12-year-old is quite handy, so she decides to fix the temperamental bathroom faucet, unwittingly unleashing a magical force drawn from secret rivers flowing beneath the city. When a drop of the magical water escapes the sink, monsterlike creatures appear and take Hyacinth's mother hostage, informing the girl she has until midnight to return the drop of water, "on pain of death." Hyacinth's neighbor Lady Roslyn rushes in to help with the quest, but Hyacinth soon realizes the neighbor is a villain set on causing a second "Great Fire" in London. As they traverse the sewers of London's underworld, they meet all sorts of magical, quirky characters—some friends, some foes. Whom can Hyacinth trust as she searches for her mother? Readers must willingly suspend disbelief to follow Sager Weinstein's engaging, fast-paced fantasy, but he makes it worth their while. It's a wild ride that's fun, freaky, outlandish, and suspenseful. Readers will beg for another installment. Copyright 2017 Booklist Reviews.

Horn Book Guide Reviews 2018 Spring

After her scatterbrained mother is kidnapped, it's up to Hyacinth to unravel secrets (both ancestral and historical) beneath London. Aided by a magical pig, Oaroboarus, who communicates via printed business cards, Hyacinth traverses London's underground rivers, finding allies and discovering strange forms of magic. Wacky characters take precedence over plotting, but the author's re-visioning of Victorian London (and its plumbing) is unique. Copyright 2018 Horn Book Guide Reviews.
