I made a good start on A MARVELLOUS LIGHT over soup and a lunchtime bike ride, and I think I‘m gonna like it a lot.

GondorGirl This one is on my shelf, but I'm waiting until I have time to really savor it! 2d
xicanti @GondorGirl I don‘t think it‘s gonna take me very long. It‘s decidedly moreish. 1d

I really enjoyed the story in this book, it was a great fantasy story. It was a little slow to get into but by the end I had trouble putting it down. It was quite…sexy at times so not a book to recommend!
4/5

Belated TBR for the #20in4 readathon this weekend! I've been stuck in the middle of a few books for awhile and could use some reading motivation, plus I'm staying in for New Years with so many people testing positive. Thanks for creating this @Andrew65 !

Andrew65 Great to have you with us, and hope it helps you finish the books. 3w

This was one of my most anticipated books and it really blew me away! Everything worked so well!
The magic was great and I loved the relationship between the MCs. And even though I'm often bored by mysteries I really enjoyed it here, was hooked and wanted to know more.

One of the last books for this year and it is definitely quite high on the favorites list.

Nessavamusic Ooh, good to hear, this is on my January TBR 3w

This book was delightful! Brand new magical systems, curses and treasure hunts, & queer romance at the turn of the century - what more could you want? I fell in love with Robin and Edwin, and can't wait to continue their adventure! Marske did a wonderful job creating a magical world that's so unique and complex yet easy to follow. Her characters are lovable yet frustratingly human. And the historical setting adds just the right amount of whimsy ✨

#Illumicrate November 2021

This is a fun book! The jacket is a heavy clear plastic, it contains the 2 figures & all of the writing. The hardcover is printed with the same design as the edges.

It was a well-written book. 😁

peanutnine 😍😍😍 so gorgeous!! I just got this one out from the library 1mo
Aims42 Those edges 😍😍😍😍😍 1mo
Twainy @Aims42 @peanutnine I‘m just amazed 😆 the cover matches the edges. I have no idea how they did that. 1mo

Marvellous!

The #audiobook was really good.

It was easy to root for the two MCs. The world-building was well-executed.

Looking forward to the next book in the series.

CarolynM Waiting for me on my kindle🙂 2mo

Edwardian England—magical, mysterious and, oh so murderous—is fantastically fun in this story about a non- magical baronet who somehow finds himself working as a liaison to a secret magical society. No sooner does he learn that magic is a real thing in the world, than he is attacked, condescended to by his counterpart in the society, & then…well, you‘ll see. The middle gets a little soggy but I enjoyed the banter, the flirting & the magic.

🎧 I LOVED the first half of this book! It was sweet. I loved the lushly defined Edwardian England. Sadly it was a time & place where any relationship outside of the male/female standard was vilified.

Sir Robin & Edwin are slowly feeling a connection. By the halfway mark of this book Sir Robin & Edwin have multiple graphic sex scenes. This is not for kids or listening at WORK. 😆

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️1/3

Twainy This is more of a gay romance with a side of magic, mystery, murder & a curse.

I don‘t like romance & surprise graphic sex at work sucked. Woulda been a 5 star book without it because it was written well & the world/characters were well developed & likable!

Aims42 Thank you for the heads up! I don‘t like romance or graphic sex scenes either 🙄 I was hoping this this was in the vein of ‘The House on the Cerulean Sea‘. I‘m borrowing from my library so we‘ll see…. I‘ll stay alert towards the middle of the book 👍🏻 2mo

I just finished an ARC of this book. I adored it. It is a fantasy with strong romantic elements that takes place in Edwardian England. It features two gay main characters and you get both of their viewpoints. Non-magical Robin becomes liaison to magical England, Edwin specifically, and immediately finds himself in trouble. Fantastic writing and lovely characters. It doesn't have a cliffhanger ending, but their story is not finished. Out 11/2.

CarolynM This sounds great. I've preordered it🙂 4mo

Oh my! This was fun and glorious (and not for the prudes)
I did struggle a bit with her third person writing style at keeping track of who was thinking what. But it is a madcap adventure with an interesting magical world. I think it is a series and I hope we see a lot more of the ladies in the next book, but love that in a Gay storyline the women are all strong and fiercely hardheaded.
Thanks to Edelweiss for the ACR- US release date is Nov '21
