Danger in the air. Lovers on the brink.
A Charm of Magpies, Book 3
With the justiciary understaffed, a series of horrifying occult murders to be investigated, and a young student who is flying—literally—off the rails, magical law enforcer Stephen Day is under increasing stress. And his relationship with his aristocratic lover, Lord Crane, is beginning to feel the strain.
Crane chafes at the restrictions of England’s laws, and there’s a worrying development in the blood-and-sex bond he shares with Stephen. A development that makes a sensible man question if they should be together at all.
When a thief strikes at the heart of Crane’s home, a devastating loss brings his closest relationships into bitter conflict—especially his relationship with Stephen. And as old enemies, new enemies, and unexpected enemies paint the lovers into a corner, the pressure threatens to tear them apart.
Warning: Contains hot-blooded sex, cold-blooded murder, sinister magical goings-on and a lot of swearing.
4,5 It’s the end of it all stars
Damn! I can’t believe this series is over. Really. Over.
Dear KJ Charles,
Do you think you can provide us with a 3.5? Just a small itty bitty tinny tiny few lines of some more Lord Crane and some more Stephen??? Just a little story of where they are? And some hot sex on a platter to boot?? Its not to much to ask for I don’t really think…. all us little people who will now have a tiny little fracture, some may be bigger than others, in their hearts because…. because it matters to us… we would probably fall graciously at your feet. Really.
Would forever be grateful, Mare
I loved this series. So very much. Just like my review of book 2 I will repeat: I have never loved two MCs so equally as I do Lord Lucien Crane and Stephen Day. I can’t split them up, I can’t separate why I liked one more than the other because you just can’t.
And then there is Merrick. My Lord. Everyone deserves a Merrick in their life. I’m so glad I have my Merrick. You know those friends that never leave your side, that have your back no matter what. That can go blow for blow with you and it won’t change a thing! Yes everyone deserves a friend like that!
We meet Jonah. I for one can’t wait to sink my teeth into Jackdaw which is currently waiting to be devoured on my Ereader. I’ll let you in on something. They probably won’t ever replace S&C in my heart. BUT. You never know, stranger things have happened and my mama always told me to never say never.
There is murder and mayhem and laughter and no tears. There is trickery and fights and arguments and the strings of my heart humming. Crane’s declaration. Man. Sex against the wall. Hot. The argument. Worthy.
The way KJ Charles writes, makes reading so effortless. You just fall into it. And… you don’t stop until the end. And it almost feels like all it took from start to finish was just a blink. Its fantasy and magic and fiction and Joy.
“Crane put his hand on Stephen’s tattooed shoulder, pulled him over for a kiss, and felt Stephen’s hands move on him, assertive, cofident, loved.
Two for Joy, That would do very well indeed.”
