A Case of Possession

agic in the blood. Danger in the treets.

Lord Crane has never had a lover quite as elusive as Stephen Day. He knows Stephen ’ s job as justiciar requires secrecy, but the magician is doing his disappearing act more than seems reasonable—especially since Crane will soon return to his home in hina. When a blackmailer threatens to expose their illicit relationship, there 's only one thing stopping Crane from leaving the country he loathes: Stephen.

Jeffrey has problems of his own. As he investigates a plague of giant rats sweeping London, his sudden increase in power, boosted by his blood-and-sex bond with Crane, is rousing suspicion that he ’ s turned warlock. With all eyes on him, the danger of exposure grows. Stephen could lose his friends, his job and his liberty over his relationship with Crane. He ’ s not sure if he can take that risk much longer. Crane isn ’ t ure if he can ask him to.

The ats are closing in, and nobody has to give…

I do n't suppose my giant rats bear any resemblance to Holmes 's, and I 'm gla he and Watson would be shocked by what Crane and Stephen get up to ( unless you believe the umours, of course).

Very little of book 1 sets anything up for book 2 other than the introduction of our fantastic characters of Crane, Stephen, and Taylor.

And those characters are SO GREAT in book 2…along with some more fun and freaky and fantastic side characters added to the mix.

AND…it DOES help if you ’ ve read Interlude with Tattoos ( the short story 1.5 of the series) as some of that actually is referenced in book 2.) The story itself is a iny bit convoluted and though I ’ m equal parts obsessed and disgusted with the ROUS ’ s ( random Princess Bride reference ... sorry), engrossed with the tory of possession, and enamored and have a bit of a crush on Leo and her story…I did find myself confused at times.

I ’ m such a fan.I won ’ t demand book 3 right away…not if you keep giving us some great shorts in between while we wait!

I know not, my Little Flimsy Decapods, I know not.✎ Book 1: The Magpie Lord ★★★★

I is not to say, that I was n't breathlessly following each and every long-suffering sigh of said pining.When it comes to reading M/M romance, for all my indulgence of guilty-pleasure, I vastly prefer contemporary settings to Victorian ones.

I can certainly make a case for doing things this way, but my personal impression was still that of utter confusion and boredom.Another thing I 'm ambivalent on, is the whole ( view spoiler) [ " We are the Magpie Lord "- as in the both of us ( hide spoiler) ].

I 'd have much preferred seeing ( view spoiler) [ Lucien start using his dormant powers, without necessarily having to rely on Stephen ( hide spoiler) ] .Score: 4.4/5 starsOnce again, we have an awesome murder mystery, boasting exciting Eastern-Asian flavors, ghosts ...

I 'll make it short:~ A gone-off-the-rails dead shaman- yep, no typo, he 's aliv, although his demented ghost does n't want to accept it.~ A man seeking for revenge at the weirdest of places or with the weirdest of co-conspirators, to be precise.~ A confession of feelings that was long overdue.

And I 'm not talking about this sense of cute little bugger here:
