This was my first MM Romance and I can’t believe how much I enjoyed it I would never have tried this genre or this author it weren’t for my 2 GR friends MsSmartarse and Roxana who convinced me to give The Magpie Lord a try after praising this series like two teenage fangirls After I read it I understood why and I think I might join the fanclub I am not usually a fan of romance but if you throw in some fantasy and a set the novel in Victorian London then I might catch the bait Which I did Lucien Vaudrey returns to London from his forced exile in Shanghai in order to assume his role as Lord Crane after his father and brother died in suspicious circumstance Soon after his return he starts to have suicidal tendencies and is stopped in the last moments by his loyal valet Realizing something unnatural is going on the new lord hires a local “shaman” to help him survive Magician Stephen Day hates Lord Crane’s family for food reasons and struggles to put his duty first and deal with the supernatural threats To his surprise his client does not resemble his despiteful family and will realize with surprise that they are start to become very attracted to each other I enjoyed the relationship between the two of them and the smut I appreciated that there was a good balance between the plot and the love story The length was also perfect A guilty pleasure to which I’ll come back to

Us appeal isn't the only thing rendering Stephen powerless Evil pervades the house a web of plots is closing round Crane and if Stephen can’t find a way through it they’re both going to die Warning Contains hot mm sex between a deeply inappropriate earl and a very confused magician dark plots in a magical version of Victorian England family values not the good kind and a lot of swearing. 485 stars rounded up to 5 starsThis is another book that I will not even consider without the reviews from my Goodreads friends Historical is not my genre of choice; so any titles with historical tag will be low priority for me However I am a huge fan of mystery and paranormal Contemplating the positive reviews and the fact that this story had paranormal mystery element I decided to take the plungeAnd what a delightful surprise it wasThe story opened with Crane trying to commit suicide it wasn't because he wanted to do it he was persuaded by force of evil Merrick Crane's manservant told his Lord to look for help from a shaman Entered Stephen Day a magic practitioner who had every reasons to hate Crane for the sins of Crane's father But Stephen realized that Crane was not his father and he ended up helping Crane to find out the root of evil that had almost took Crane's lifeFrom the first page I was immediately hooked This story had PLOT people It also had witty banters engaging horror mystery infused with magic and tales and ghosts BAMFmanservant yes you Merrick captivating characters and DELICIOUS sexual tension between the two men The sex scenes were amazingly hot too Crane and Stephen seemed to prefer NOT using beds There prefer using vertical surface and one memorable desk Oh the story that desk can tell They were RAWR kind of scenes and it made me all melty and tingly and wanted to fan myself despite reading this in an centralized air con room The words the words were pretty too; I was in love with it And THAT climax of an ending I wish ALL books end like that I do have FEW trivial complaintsFirst regarding the reveal of the bad guys In mysterysuspense I do love being surprised However at the same time I would like to be 'guided' in the process Throw in some clues and then red herrings along the way and I will be one happy girl when I come to the finish line In here though few of the major villains are disclosed in the 11th hour; without any prior introduction It reduced the fun of deducing even if I wasn't a detectiveSecond some of the teaser information is not fully explained in the end We got the tease on Crane being forced to have a very large and expensive tattoo He was about to tell but he stopped and the issue wasn't raised again It will be nice to have it told it will give me a deeper understanding about Crane and his background similar to when Merrick told Mrs Bell on why he was so loyal to Crane We also got the cheeky tease of what happened with the champagne in China But also never fully explained I wanted to know Having said that this is uite trivial because I assume we can still get the teasers explained in book #2Third this was definitely MY personal issue I could be annoying like that I wasn't too fond of Crane referring to Stephen as little man Maybe because Stephen and I shared the same height It made me want to straighten up my spine and defended my height to all you tall peopleSo in conclusion engaging arousing at times frightening and most definitely entertaining In the grand scheme of things the minor complaints can't stop me from giving my rounded up perfect 5 shining stars Because this is what an excellent story is made of a combination of well prepared idea well plotted execution and well written characters Simply one of my favorites from a debut author this year I am definitely looking forward to book #2 coming in JanuaryPS Thanks for bringing this up to my timeline Vio and others Thanks for doing buddy read with me Kate Jenn Sunny

I like mm I like fantasy I like Victorian Gothic I wrote an mm Victorian Gothic fantasy Well someone had to If you're wondering what's the deal with the magpiesBritish people count magpies There's a rhyme everyone knows of which the most common variant starts 'One for sorrow two for joy three for a girl four for a boy' This book began its life when I pointed to three magpies in the park and told my daughter 'Look three for a girl' and she said 'But how did they know I'd be here' Which got me thinking about what would happen if the magpies did know and what magpie magic would entail and what sort of things might happen to a man haunted by magic he didn't understand and where he might turn for help Because there are some fairly creepy magpie rhymes out thereOne for sorrow Two for mirth Three for a wedding Four for a birth Five for rich Six for poor Seven for a witch I can tell you no Eight for a babe buried in the earthNine for a feastingTen for a dearthI hope you enjoy it Crane and Stephen's story continues in A Case of Possession
