A wonderful light from Freya Marske
Release date: November 2
Den of Geek says: We go from epic fantasy to something smaller and more personal with that spicy romance adjacent to the supernatural. It could be a good choice if you wanted Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrell focus more on a love story.
Editor’s summary: Robin Blyth has more than enough worries in her life. He struggles to be a good older brother, a responsible employer and the harassed baronet of a seat emptied by the excesses of his late parents. When an administrative error sees him appointed as the civil service liaison to a hidden magical company, he discovers what is happening under the less than extraordinary reality he has always known.
Now Robin must face the beauty and danger of magic, an excruciating deadly curse and the alarming visions of the future that come with it, not to mention Edwin Courcey, his cold and prickly counterpart in the magical bureaucracy, who clearly wishes Robin was anyone and anywhere else.
Robin’s predecessor is gone, and the mystery of what happened to him reveals disturbing truths about the oldest stories they have been told about the land they live on and what binds it together. Launched together and faced with unexpected dangers, Robin and Edwin uncover a plot that threatens all the wizards of the British Isles and a secret that more than one person has already died to keep.
