What Abigail Did That Summer (2021) Ben Aaronovitch (Rivers of London)

What Abigail Did That SummerSet concurrently with Foxglove Summer.

Abigail Kamara learned discovered what magic is, and now that she knows, she’ll do anything to learn it–including taking and mastering Latin.

If you’ve read the Rivers of London books, you already know just how marvelous Abigail is.

I stayed in the café and made some notes in my Falcon diary. Peter gave me my first one because he knew that getting me involved in magic was the only way to keep me out of trouble. This one was diary number three, but only because I write small.

If you haven’t read them, I believe you could read this without too much difficulty, because Abigail was only on the periphery of the series up to that point, and so her world is quite different from Peter’s.

The fox is sitting in my lap and still nuzzling my chin, which is beginning to vex me so I tell it to stop.

“Don’t you like that?” says the fox. The voice is slightly wheezy and pitched high. I suspect this is a vixen. “In training they said it promoted co-operation in humans.”

It also becomes quite clear why Nightingale has allowed Abigail access to the Folly: if he can keep somewhat of an eye on her he might be able to reduce the amount of danger she gets into.

This is a fun and delightful novella, and my thanks to Tania for getting it for me, when I last I looked there wasn’t even a pub date for the ebook available. :)
