Summary: In Dream London the city changes a little every night and the people change a little every day. Captain Jim Wedderburn has looks, style and courage by the bucketful. He’s adored by women, respected by men and feared by his enemies. He’s the man to find out who has twisted London into this strange new world, and he knows it. But the towers are growing taller, the parks have hidden themselves away and the streets form themselves into strange new patterns. There are people sailing in from new lands down the river, new criminals emerging in the East End and a path spiralling down to another world. Everyone is changing, no one is who they seem to be, and Captain Jim Wedderburn is beginning to understand that he’s not the man he thought he was...

I Want This: Honestly, this sounds a bit different from most books that I pick up on my own, but that's half the fun. I like finding books that surprise me! This sounds fantastic, and I'm so curious about what's happening to London! I first heard about this book on The Qwillery, so thanks!

Intrigued enough that if I were to see this in the library I'd pick it up but alas I'm not so intrigued as that I'd go out and buy a copy.
