Dear KJ Charles,
I reviewed the first book in this series here. Now that some time has passed I can say that it was probably my favorite m/m book last year. I am usually wary of reading the sequel to a beloved book, because I worry whether the sequel will live up to the high bar that the first book raised. I am glad that for me this sequel definitely did. Now I can worry about the third book.
This book should not be read as a stand – alone. If you do read this first, I do not think you will be terribly confused, because the adventure/mystery plot is a new one, but the book continues to build up the relationship between the main characters, Lucien Crane and Stephen Day, and most importantly it once again develops their characters in the midst of all that danger, magic and mayhem.
One of the main reasons why I often scoff at the possibility of a sequel (or series developed) to a book I loved is because so many authors seem to be so very fond of creating artificial conflicts between the couple, just to break them up for the sake of another book and then putting them back together at the end. But there is absolutely nothing artificial in the tension between Stephen and Lucien in this book, because it arises out of who they are, and the unresolved issues in their relationship are believable because their relationship is only several months old. And of course there is a nice external danger to both of them, which made perfect sense in the context of the mystery/adventure plot.
More importantly, the unresolved issues between the men do not make them act like idiots.Read more ›
Lucien and Stephen are such great, unique characters. They are very original, very smart (they figured out their problems and were brave enough to face their feelings and obstacles head on rather than cowering and creating more problems between them), and are so wonderful together. I just love them. Their attitudes and personalities always bring a smile to my face. Their interactions are often funny too, as are all the great secondary characters. There is a lot of very cool magic in this series as well, and some darker scenes, which just give the books more depth. The books feel very realistic for the time period, and I feel totally immersed in this world whenever I read them. My highest praise for KJ Charles on this series (which is her debut).
The story line is unique and brilliant and new, but continues some of the obstacles from the first book, while leading the reader on a grand mystery. Perfect grammar and editing, I do believe, and no faults that I can bring to mind. Reading this equates to 100% joy in my mind, and this is exactly the type of story I needed. I cannot wait to read the next one, and I want to read a fourth and a fifth at least too! I will take whatever I can get because these books just get to me. This series is among my favorites. Buy both and read them now! And then wait eagerly with me for the third.
P.S. I will never think of magpies the same way again. Now I rather want a magpie tattoo too.
The wealthy, handsome, and indomitable Lucien Vaudrey has been busy, both, maintaining his China business interests and keeping track of his shaman lover, Stephen Day. His gifted lover seems to magically disappear after each of their lovely trysts. As a magistrate of magic, Stephen is on call at every hour of every day to make sure that all magical activities are valid, but surely his lover should have some time for him, shouldn’t he? They are in the beginning of their— whatever this is—and if Stephen stayed around long enough maybe they could figure it out, together.
Impoverished, but determined shaman Stephen Day has his mind and his heart full. His worries that his magical connection to Lord Crane will be discovered and the possibly of everyone finding out that he is a lover of men—well, a lover of Lord Crane at any rate— is second only to his dismay that he is in a “relationship” with a man so far above his station that said man will surely realize his mistake at any moment. Mysterious sightings of giant rats and the death of several Chinese shaman soon override his personal fears and force his focus to his justiciar duties.Read more ›
