Strange Practice: A Dr Greta Helsing Novel – Vivian Shaw – 01.10.20

This book was a lot of fun to read, just my cup of tea! For fans of Sarah Painter’s Crow Investigations series, or Ben Aaronovitch’s Rivers of London books, it’s set within the supernatural sub-community of modern day London. This time, instead of a detective, the main protagonist is a doctor who specialises in treating non-human people. Greta Helsing is descended from the Van Helsing family, famous for Vampire hunting, but instead of hunting, she befriends and treats vampires, ghouls, were-people and other supernatural beings. Of course there are bad guys threatening the supernatural community and Greta and her companions have to track them down and fight them. I thought the book was really well written with sympathetic and well rounded characters and I very much enjoyed reading it. I was tempted to straight away buy the next two books in the series, but I was put off by the price for each being £5.99 on Amazon Kindle, when most of the books I buy are 99p daily deals. I might yet splash out because I really want to read more of the series!
