"Exciting, exhilaring, scary and moving in equal measure,The Oversightis a teeming world of dark deeds and dark magics, brilliantly realized." - M. R. Carey
The Last Hand of the Oversight still patrols the border between the natural and supranatural, holding a candle to the darkness. But this new Hand is unproven, its fresh members untrained, its veterans weary and battle-scarred. Their vulnerability brings new enemies into the city, and surprising new allies from across the sea.

But most surprising of all are new revelations about the Oversight's past, revelations that will expose the true peril of the world in which Sharp and Sara are trapped -- the secret of the Black Mirrors, and what lies beyond. And the catastrophic danger that will follow them home, if they ever manage to return.

The dark waters rise. The candles are guttering. But the light still remains.

For now...

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Enjoyable Sequel I really enjoyed the sequel. Some of the questions I have remained unanswered, but the world was expanded and I was able to get into the mystery a little more. The stakes were definitely raised and I can't imagine how things will turn out for the Hand. I was happiest with Sharp and Sara's storyline, though I did really enjoy Amos's as well. I feel like I'm reading a bunch of different stories in one book (probably why it's so long), and I can't help but wonder how they're going to intersect and end. Hopefully the third book will be on the way soon!
